First Holy Communion

This past Sunday was Princess P's First Holy Communion. She was so excited that she was wide awake at 5:30 in the morning. This is huge since she normally wakes up between 8:30 and 9:00 in the morning. She is my night owl. She couldn't wait for her big day! She wanted to eat and get dressed right away. She was very unhappy when I wouldn't let her.

Princess P waiting patiently for Mass to start.

Standing in front of Mary.

Posing for the camera, so Mama can get a picture of the back of her dress.
She picked out the lace and loved it.
When I finished the dress, she squealed and said "I LOVE IT!"

I am so proud of my sweet little girl. She was thrilled to be receiving our Lord for the first time. She was the only child to receive communion by mouth. She is becoming quite the traditionalist. She is now asking for a veil.
After Mass, we headed home for a small party with family.

She wanted a tiered cake, but Mama didn't have that much time to create since I was busy sewing her dress!


  1. Wow, lovely!
    Congratulations, Monique, on your Princess P's FHC!! She looks gorgeous and so does your dress!!
    Terrific cake too!
    Looks like you had an amazing day!

    Congrats! I have a feeling she is looking fwd to her Second Holy Communion this Sunday now!

    1. Chris,
      Thank you for stopping by! I was very pleased with how the dress came out. Everyone loved it, especially her. You were right, she was looking forward to this Sunday.
      Have a great weekend.

  2. If you want a covering for church that is a little more subtle than a full veil, check out Garlands of Grace. I have many of their Cecily style and love them.

    1. Thank you for the suggestion! Someone recently told me to just make one, so I think I will surprise her with one.

  3. I like the celebration because it is simple but very memorable. First Communions don't have to be so grand. The most important thing is to celebrate her acceptance of Christ which signals her orientation to Christianity. :)
