A confirmation ceremony is a special occasion in a Catholic young person’s life. It is a celebration of their faith and symbolises that they are now a fully-fledged member of the church. As with communions, it’s also a time for families to come together and celebrate, giving gifts and marking this important milestone. Whether you’re arranging a party to celebrate or want to give a gift to a special young person, flowers are an important part of the big day. Belles Fleurs in Blanchardstown have bespoke confirmation packages that cover all of your needs from table décor to corsages. Contact us in plenty of time before the big day so we can book your delivery space and work on a confirmation floral package to suit your child's style and taste.

Confirmations in Ireland

At confirmation, an individual confirms their faith for themselves, and publicly before family, friends, and the Church. It usually takes place around age 13. They also vow to abstain from drugs and alcohol until a certain age as part of the ceremony. In Ireland, a confirmation is one of the last ceremonies before the child graduates from 6 th class of primary school into secondary, marking a very special occasion in their lives both personally and spiritually. Like communities, families celebrate in different ways. Some like to go for dinner, some visit their relative's homes and others like to hire function spaces and celebrate with big parties.

Confirmation Gifts

Some confirmation gifts are traditional and some more modern, depending on the situation. A confirmation child will have a sponsor, who usually gifts something memorable like an engraved piece of jewellery, rosary beads, a personalised bible or a cross. Most people gift the confirmed teen with a card expressing their sentiments, with a cash donation inside. The amount depends on your relationship and if you’re related. Flowers are a beautiful confirmation gift. They add a special presence to the day and a pop of bright and beautiful colour.

Confirmation Flowers

Whether you’re planning a big celebration with friends and family, or a small dinner at home, flowers will add depth and beauty to any space. The right arrangement will stand out, looking fantastic in pictures that you will admire for years to come. Flowers can be used in every part of the big day, from church décor and bouquets for teachers from the class, to worn by the teens as part of their outfit. A single stem or a small bouquet can be carried, or an over-the- top flower wall display created as a stunning backdrop for school pictures. If you’re sending flowers, we can include a heartfelt and personalised note with some special sentiment. White flowers, such as roses, lilies, or orchids, are often associated with purity and spirituality, making them popular choices for confirmation celebrations. Be careful with staining when it comes to lily’s, don’t ruin your beautiful new clothes!
