"I wanted to order invites for my daughter's first birthday. I went to Girl's Birthday Invites and was disappointed. Everything is pink and purple and frills. So I decided to look under the Boy's Birthday Invites and sure enough, came across this gem. Just a little backstory, my husband and I like space-related things. Her room is done up in yellow with white and gray stars and a big ole moon on her wall. Her bedding was white, gray, and yellow stars and planets. Because girls can like space to, amirite? SO that being said, this invite looked like it would be perfect. Luckily for us, Shutterfly is good about letting you edit so we just changed the word 'boy' to 'girl' and went on with filling it out. The reason I gave it 5 stars is it really is a good looking invite for either gender. The coloring is wonderful, the pictures we selected looked fantastic, overall SUPER happy with the product. Don't forget, there is a space on the back to put a picture as well!"
"Very happy with number of pictures and amount of text I was able to put on the card"
"Absolutely cute! It was perfect for our sons 1st birthday party. We got alot of compliments....would definitely recommend..."
"I love how my invitations turned out. Simply uploaded my image and that was it, turned out adorable!"
"Turned out wonderful and the customer service representative that I dealt with was wonderful and very helpful!"
It finally happened. Your little boy, so recently (it seems) a tiny newborn, has turned one year old. It seems impossible, but the day has finally come to celebrate his first birthday. This bittersweet moment is one you’ll never forget, so why not mark the day with an adorable birthday bash in honor of your little guy?
At one year old, perhaps he has said his first words, or taken his first wobbly steps around the coffee table of your living room. These early milestones are packed with excitement and bittersweet joy. Celebrate your growing boy by sending out personalized first birthday invitations to your friends and family members and hosting a fun party for him.
With Shutterfly, it’s easy to create a high-quality set of boy’s first birthday invitations to send out before the party. Choose from invitations in a variety of themes and designs to find something you like. Then, you can personalize your cards down to every little detail. Upload your favorite photos of the birthday boy, choose the best fonts and colors and customize your invitations with the event details.
Aim to mail the invitations about 3-5 weeks in advance of the party.
Hosting the party at home? If so, there is more to do than send out your baby boy’s first birthday invitations. Get your house ready for this special celebration with beautiful photo décor. Set the fun, precious mood with decorative wall decals that complement the party theme. Create customized plates—perfect for serving birthday cake, and they also make great keepsakes for years to come. Personalize a set of stylish throw pillows commemorating your little (yet soon-to-be not so little) one.
No matter how you decorate for the party, it’s sure to be a fun yet bittersweet celebration of your baby boy’s growth. Prepare to shed some joyful tears when you see your little guy enjoying his very first birthday cake. We probably don’t need to tell you this, but don’t forget to take plenty of pictures of the occasion. They’ll make a great addition to a future photo book.
