"I didn't use them as invitations. Instead I sent them out as thank you photo cards. I wrote on back of it thanking everyone for coming at my son's first birthday party and for the gift they gave. The pictures I used was from the party that my guests didn't see. So far everyone says they love it. Only thing they wish (and I wish too) it was magnetic so they can put on refrigerator like the calendars I gave away"
"The printing was super and the quality was great"
"It came out very beautiful. I had no issues and it came very quickly."
"I made a birthday card for our grandson using shutterfly and am very pleased. It was easy to do, and even though it warned that the picture resolution wasn't optimum, it still turned out well. Great value for the price."
"The card came out just perfect ! Good turn around time and I would order again and again."
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.
