Shabby Chic Communion Confetti Project

We celebrated our daughter’s First Holy Communion with a shabby chic garden themed party at home this May.  In keeping with the theme’s rustic feel, I decided to take my hands to glue to craft a few of the party details…starting with the confetti.

Confetti are an Italian tradition attached to party favors. Basically, they are Jordan almonds (candy coated almonds) presented in organza topped with a floral arrangement of some kind. They are given out at the end of a religious event to each family as a symbol of good luck, health and wealth…and joy!

For these confetti, here is what you will need:
– your trusty glue gun
– organza circles (not plain tulle; you will know the difference in texture)
– white M&Ms    *As they are normally almonds, and the hostess is allergic to all nuts, I made them out of white M&Ms.
– sola flowers
– 2 yards of 5/8″ double sided satin ribbon

These confetti were then tied to the favors. The favors came in a box which were wrapped in a natural ivory wrapping paper that had monotoned stripes. (Inside the box were a pink enamaled frame with our daughter’s photo inside).
