How to Plan a Confirmation Party

Monday, 25 Oct 2010 10:19 AM

Confirmation is a solemn but joyous occasion. This is when a young person crosses over into the world of adulthood, taking their spiritual vows in allegiance with their Christian faith. A confirmation party becomes the celebration of this beautiful event.
Planning a confirmation can be fun if you involve your family and friends. You can separate duties and hand over responsibilities to them. After all, it is a family affair and they will love to be involved in the preparations.

The following are a few ways to help you plan a confirmation party:
1. The look. The first thing to decide on when planning a confirmation party is the style of the party you wish to throw. Is it going to be a garden party? Or do you want some poolside fun? Or is it a dance party you wish to have? Are you going to have a dress code? You may even want a themed party. It is a nice idea to involve the young person in whose honor the party is being held. They may have their heart set on something, and may even have ideas that will help you plan the look of the party.
2. The budget. Once you have an idea of the style and scale of the party, you will need to draw up a budget to define your planning. Depending on your budget, you can decide on the venue for your confirmation party. It could be the backyard of your own house, or a community center or club. It could also be held at one of your friend’s houses if they are more spacious.
3. The guests. The style and scale of the party you want to throw and your budget will determine the number of guests you should invite. Draw up a list with the help of the guest of honor to include their suggestions. Send the invites early and make sure you invite them for the confirmation as well, because generally, it makes sense to have the party right after the confirmation service.
4. The décor. Preplanning of your party should include the decorations you want to put up. If your friends and family are helping you with decorations, make sure you have procured all the materials in time and distributed them. Also, if you wish to hire a band or any other form of entertainment for the party, it is advisable to do so well ahead of time to avoid a last minute rush.
5. The food. Organizing food and drinks does not take much effort if a restaurant caters the event, but choosing the menu and drinks takes some time. So get your family together and discuss what will suit your party (and pocket) best.
Remember to plan for a toast to the guest of honor. It is their big day and the party should be designed to make the day special!
