  • Have a picnic in the park.

  • Depending on where you live and what the climate is around early May, I would have it at a local park. You can easily BBQ and the kid would have fun playing.

  • A few thoughts: Ask a friend to have it and make it hotdogs and cake and paper plates so there is virtually no clean up. Aren't you having him sponsored? Ask the fellow who will be his sponsor.
    What about having a simple get together like that at the church? Is there a room you could have for a modest donation? Is the weather warm enough to have it at a park? You could hand out invitations to announce the confirmation and invite everyone to a park setting in the month of June to celebrate and enjoy the weather. On that day, have a blessing over him and a photo of the day he was confirmed. Don't have it at your mother's because you are desperate. Make it work for you and he will love it.
