A First Communion Celebration

Phew...finally I am able to make time for blogging.  Time slips away so quickly when the kids are home for the summer.  Enough with the excuses and on with the post.  In the spring our oldest son made his First Communion and of course after the ceremony we celebrated with family back at our home.  I was looking for decorations and everything I found was very feminine and this just would not do.  So off to the craft store I went in search of inspiration.  I loved how fresh and simple the colors gray and white were.  So I made a banner with a variety of gray scrapbook paper and free printable letters I found here at this wonderful site.

My apologies for the crummy picture.  I often forget how much the sunlight can effect a photo.  For simple party favors I purchased water bottles and printed labesl with our son's initials and the date of his Communion then attached a tag with a poem by Shel Silverstein (a favorite in our home).

Here is a close up of the tags that were attached.
Thanks for stopping in to see what is new.
