Throw the Perfect 1st Birthday Party
Can you believe your little one is already turning one year old? Your baby’s first birthday is a major milestone, and you’ll want to mark the occasion in a big way. How can you make sure the party is just as special as the day?
· First, choose a theme and carry it throughout the whole party. Start with the invitations, of course, and keep the decorations, party favors, and table linens in line with the main theme. Some popular options for first birthday themes include animals, rubber ducks, dinosaurs, space ships, and mermaids, but really, the sky is the limit. You can have a polka dot theme or a music theme, or you can let the food be the theme, going with strawberries, cupcakes, or some other fun food item. You can even choose a theme that relates to the season, like a beach theme for summer or winter wonderland for winter. Think creatively, and choose whatever will make your baby’s eyes light up.
· Give the little ones their own space. You’re sure to have pint-sized guests at this party, so make sure they’ve got a comfortable place to sit. Child-sized chairs are a great idea, and so are children’s tables. As to the birthday child, you’ll want to decorate the high chair in grand style, to make it picture perfect when you bring out the smash cake.
· Plan age-appropriate activities for all the children present. Bubbles are a big hit for kids of all ages, so a bubble machine is a great idea. Sidewalk chalk is a winner if you’re going to be outside and have some patio space, and kids love ride-on toys. If most of the kid in attendance will be toddlers, you can create your own fun ball pit by filling a kiddy pool with balls. If you’ll have older kids in attendance, be sure to think of them too, perhaps setting up a craft or having some hula hoops and balls available for outdoor play.
· Don’t forget a gift table. People love to bring beautiful gifts to celebrate a child who’s turning one. Make sure your gift table is large and decorated in keeping with the theme. Don’t have a large enough table? Consider renting one, just for the big day.
