Hi Everyone

My son will be having his First Holy Communion next month and we will be having a small gathering afterwards.

Due to funds it will be very low key but would love some ideas on what we could serve.

Initially we were just going to have a sausage sizzle as it will just be close family but wondered whether perhaps a brunch or something might be abit nicer. The ceremony is at 10am so I guess the gathering afterwards would be about 11.30am.

Thanks everyone. Really appreciate your replies.

Not a holy communion gathering but at Sienna's Baptism we had made some salads, my butcher step dad had made a silverside and sliced it and on the way home we grabbed some BBQ chooks. We also had breadrolls. Then the cake and some slices for desert.

For William's baptism we did kebabs- about 5 different types of meat/veg combinations, all cooked up on the BBQ. Was a bit fiddly to get it done, but otherwise, an easy way to feed lots of people and looked a bit fancier than the usual 'meat on the barbie' affair.

We did a very low key brunch in the park after the girls' baptism.
Eggs/bacon/hashbrowns in wraps, fruit, coffee (we took a gas burner and camp kettle!) and juice.

If it's closer to lunch, maybe you could do some gourmet sandwiches or rolls and nibblies? Easy to prep before hand and not a lot of fuss?
