Thanks to Shutterfly, it is easier than ever to create beautiful, personalized stationery to celebrate your little one's first year.
Shutterfly can help you turn your photographic memories of your baby’s first year into beautiful, custom cards. Whether you want to feature one favorite photo or create a collage from the best throughout the year, simply upload your pictures to Shutterfly and select one of the dozens of templates. You can add your own design elements and pick your favorite fonts and colors. Be sure to include the day, time and place of the birthday party. Make sure you request an RSVP to aid with your planning. Remember to send out your first birthday party invitations a minimum of three weeks before the special day to allow folks time to make arrangements to attend.
Chances are that when you designed the invitation, you found yourself drawn to a particular theme. Whether you are featuring dinosaurs, action heroes, baby animals, Disney princesses or a certain train character, picking a theme helps make planning a party easier. Just think… if you pick dinosaurs, you can make a dinosaur-shaped cake or cupcakes and add flair to the venue with dinosaur-themed decorations. Engage your partygoers and create a moment to look back on with a dinosaur-themed photo booth. Make a backdrop with a sheet, add tropical-looking plants and have your camera charged and ready to go. For help planning a Disney-themed party, you can choose from a variety of Disney home decorations. You can even make custom photo plates of your little guy or girl to display your favorite memories.
Planning the party will be a fun time for you. Be sure to have your camera charged, so that you can capture each and every special moment. You can turn your favorite memories from the day into adorable, personalized thank you cards to keep the memories flowing.
