Quinn's Communion Celebration Luncheon - White Flying Dove & Cross Centerpieces
ABOUT THE PARTY:For the celebration luncheon following Quinn's First Holy Communion, his mother chose a favorite restaurant, in Haddonfield, NJ, with a beautiful outdoor seating area. Unfortunately, the weather was a little chilly and overcast, so the party was set up inside in the elegant back room.
HOW THEY SET TO CELEBRATE: White was the order of the day, and Quinn's grandmother was in charge of decorations. As a dear friend of one of Set To Celebrate's team members, she asked what us what she could do to make it special. Having just completed the design for our new Flying Doves & Cross Balloon Centerpieces, we were thrilled to be able to offer her the opportunity to be our first customer!
She chose 2 Centerpieces(Flying Doves centerpieces - $14.95 each) and a Flying Doves Balloon Bouquet(Flying Doves Balloon Bouquets - $4.50 each) all in white. She added a Dark Blue & Light Blue "GOD BLESS" Photo Banner ($12.50)with 2 recent photos of Quinn and a baby picture in the center, and a personalized End Note that said "Quinn"($1.50). Personalized Dove Table Sprinkles in Blue & White($3.50 each) added a touch of color to the all white tables. She ordered 1 package to say "First Holy Communion" and the second package to day "God Bless Quinn" and mixed them on all the tables.
They bought a disposable "Balloon Time" helium tank (24.99 to 39.99 available at Target, Bj's & Costco - check you local party retailer) and a family friend came early to the restaurant and set up the centerpieces and banner. They had planned to use the centerpieces on the tables and the balloon bouquet on the cake table, however, when the party came inside, they went from 2 to 3 tables. The family friend ran out and got some white tissue paper and the balloon bouquet got tied to a votive candle holder on the kid's table - no one noticed!
TOTAL COST: $54.40
