We had a wonderfully visual Pentecost celebration this weekend at RCC!
Balloons are a confirmation tradition – it just makes things more festive. 🙂
I was inspired by this photo on Pinterest (I can’t get the embedding to work!) …
I think I was so inspired by this because of how the steps to the altar were used in the design. If you have the three-dimensional space, you may as well utilize it, right?
For safety reasons I didn’t use as many candles as they did – and we actually did not light the big white candles until after the children went down to Sunday School.
In terms of fabric, I bought the red and gold specifically for this installation (4 yards of red and 2 yards of gold). The white fabric I had on hand (probably 1.5-2 yards).
(For those of you beginning to collect supplies for altarscapes, this may be helpful. I had some red fabric, but it wasn’t long enough – I tend to buy out of the remnant bin a lot, which means you’re only getting about 1 yard of fabric. Remnants are great for most designs, but it is helpful to invest in longer bolts of fabric (4-5 yards) for bigger installations every now and then.)
This was a simple, simple, simple installation! Let me know if you have any questions!
