Most children who make their First Holy Communion will have some flowers involved in the day, whether it’s being used as a bouquet, corsage, floral decoration or as a gift. First Communions are regularly celebrated around springtime which means flowers are bountiful and in season.
It’s always a beautiful time of the year to celebrate the milestone of any person who grows in their faith in the Catholic church and celebrates the receiving body and blood of Jesus for the first time.For this week’s blog, we’ve created a list of our favourite Communion flowers:
White Rose: White roses represent innocence and purity, making them the ideal flowers for a girl’s First Holy Communion. One or two cut white roses also make for an attractive wrist corsage.
Carnations: The most common flower used for Communion are the carnations. Their crispy-looking petals can last up to two to three weeks. One small white carnation pinned to your son’s suit jacket is the perfect touch to complete his look for the day. Pink and white carnations are very popular to be used in Communion bouquets and corsages as they can endure any conditions on the day.
Daisies: Daisies are low maintenance flower; they make beautiful, affordable additions to any spring flower bouquets. As well as that, Daisy crowns are very popular as a head accessory for girls on the day.
Lilies: Lilies represents humility and devotion. They always have a great smell but are also very delicate. You must take into consideration that some people have strong reactions to the scent of a lily before giving them one, especially on the day of their Holy Communion.
