    I love this commemorative bowl – where did you get this made or how did you make it yourself?

    I also had another question about your at-home first communion celebrations: all of them are sit-down dinners at your house? How many guests did you have on average? I just don’t see how I could have sit-down in my house for 30 people. Being a newer Catholic and only having been to a few First Communion celebrations, none of which were at-home — is it acceptable to not have it “sit-down” if serving sandwiches/hors douvres, you think?

    Thank you,

      Here’s the link to Clarey Clayworks on Etsy, she makes beautiful things! https://www.etsy.com/shop/ClareyClayworks

      We typically have 25 people here for a celebration. I’ve got three tables that seat 8 (one outside, our kitchen and our dining room) and I set up a card table with 4 more chairs. It’s all very laid back. People just eat where they find a spot and if needed, we eat in shifts – kids first, then adults. Just do what works for you! There’s no hard and fast rule about how to host a FC celebration. Congratulations and have fun!
