In the Roman Catholic religion, a child's First Communion is a very special day. My daughter's birthday happens to fall one week after the day she made her First Communion. I wanted to combine the celebrations but honor the special aspects of both celebrations. Thanks to Carli at Dimple Prints, we were able to do that using her gorgeous printables. The day was perfect!

Using the printables as the base for the party, I incorporated several shabby chic elements to the party decorations including paper doilies, baker's twine, lace and fabrics such as burlap.  To add a unique touch, I added quatrefoil pattern throughout the party. 

There were a lot of DIY elements to the party from the banners to the baker's twine wreath to the monogram backdrop for the sweets table.  The best part was that I was able to have the birthday girl help me in making these elements.  I love incorporating my kids into planning for their parties -and they love it as well!
