The first birthday is so special ...
The first birthday party is one of the most important milestones of your child’s life. This may not be something that they fully remember, but it’s something that will bring meaning to your entire family. Make this all about your special boy or girl and plan for some fun details that will delight guests. The first thing to remember for the first birthday party is of course the invitations. A good idea is to feature a beautiful picture of your sweet boy or girl with the party details.
Keep in mind that the centerpiece of the special day is of course the cake. Not only because this will help to feed the guests but it turns into a decoration itself. Choose carefully and go for something more elegant or over the top than usual as it may very well help to set the tone. Don’t forget that the best activity at a first birthday party is also to watch the little one eat and enjoy their first bites of cake. So beyond a beautiful cake just keep the decorations simple and try to feature on the number “1” as it holds so much meaning at this time.
Your child may not remember much from this day, but you certainly will. You don’t have to go with a theme but make it all about turning one and maybe even do pink or blue on the decorations and invitations. Put out pictures of the little guest of honor through their first year for a nice conversation point. This is all about the parents at this birthday party so be sure to take plenty of pictures and video to help highlight what this special day was all about and to remember who all was there to celebrate the special first birthday!
