8 tips for preparing your first communion party at restaurant in Geneva

The reception of First Communion can be a simple Communion breakfast or lunch that takes place in a hotel, restaurant with some family and friends.

For those who like to entertain, a family and friendly party is a good option. Don’t forget to plan meals for children and adults as guests. As a family, the child’s friends and classmates will all be invited.

Remember that this is not a typical children’s party. Unlike a wedding, which is mainly for adults, or a children’s birthday party, which is for children, a First Communion party is likely to have guests of all ages. The celebrant should be the “star” of the party and you need to make sure he and his friends have fun, but your planning should also address adults as guests rather than as helpers.

The choice of caterer or restaurant is crucial to the success of the event. Above all, the reputation of the service provider must be taken into account: know-how, experience, quality of service, etc.

By opting for a top-of-the-range restaurant or catering service in Geneva that has already proven itself to a demanding clientele, you can be sure that the organisation of the day will live up to your expectations. Our staff can help you find the right reception hall and advise you in the choice of the different service providers. His team can also take care of the decoration so that everything is in harmony with your style or the theme you have chosen.

By calling on our catering services for your communion meal, we will put all our talents at the service of your event so that it is unique.


The perfect date for your communion meal? It’s the date that suits you best! Do you find it a bit cumbersome to organize the reception on the same day as the celebration, or do you have other family events taking place on the same day? Never mind, the party can take place 1 or 2 weeks after communion, if it suits you, you don’t have to do everything on the same day..

It is recommended that you send an invitation at least four weeks in advance to all the friends and family members you wish to see at this celebration.

You will find specially designed cards in specialist shops, but it is also possible to make them yourself with your child. All you have to do is choose beautiful, plain cards in the colour of your choice and decorate them with ribbons or pictures to suit the occasion.

Ask a photographer to immortalize this event! Sometimes it is not allowed to take a photo at the time of the ceremony, but it is possible to take beautiful souvenir photos of the communicant at other times, just before communion, at the exit of the church and during the festivities. These memories will be precious!

Also set a date to take some nice photos in advance that you can use for invitations or thank you notes.


Games and animation

Unlike a traditional children’s festival, the celebration of First communion usually brings together several generations. You will therefore need to take this into account and make sure that you plan entertainment that will appeal to all your guests, whatever their age.

Although adults are usually able to keep themselves busy simply by talking and taking the opportunity to reconnect with people they don’t see regularly, many will be delighted to take part in the games on offer.

You could, for example, organize a scavenger hunt with teams of guests of different ages.
Another original idea would be to prepare a quiz (in teams, again) whose questions should highlight everyone’s knowledge.

If you choose to plan activities for young people only, ask one or two people to help you with this task.

  • ball games if the party is outdoors
  • a piñata
  • printed images to be coloured
  • thematic make-up (e.g. Noah’s Ark)
  • a workshop for decorating cookies or mini muffins, etc.

Traditionally, children receive many gifts at this celebration. However, it is appropriate to choose meaningful gifts. There are many occasions in a year to give your toddlers a console or a new bicycle. Therefore, choose symbolic objects:

  • a medal.
  • an icon.
  • a beautiful pen…

The purpose of this feast is not to focus on the material, but of course the spiritual, and the gifts chosen should also reflect this specificity.

Some also choose to prepare a souvenir gift for each guest. Small tulle bags filled with almond sugared almonds are a must, but don’t hesitate to be creative: you could also insert in the bag a photo of your child, or a blessing written by your child’s hand on a pretty card.

Gathering Memories

Choose your favourite photo from the party and print it as a thank you card to send to all guests.

After spending so much time planning and enjoying the party, you’ll surely want to keep some great memories. Thanks to the photographer, you’ll have great photos of your child, it would be a shame not to keep them. You can record your child’s communion day in a personalised photo book of this beautiful day.
