"Taking a special photo and turning it into a more special card. Thanks!"
"I got a lot of compliments on these thank you notes! Will definitely use these again!"
"Very simple and straight to the point but really nice"
"I left it blank so I can use the card for many different occasions, even just writing a quick note to a friend. Snail mail is still appreciated by many!"
Planning your child’s first birthday party is a momentous occasion that is almost more fun for you than it is for your child. Sending birthday invitations, planning cute party decorations and buying adorable monogram thank you cards is always an exciting process. Then, of course, there is the anticipated first birthday cake that is more likely to end up all over the floor than in your adorable child’s mouth. Keep in mind that before you can finalize all of the birthday plans, you first need to come up with a theme that is fitting for the big occasion. Here are a few birthday party theme ideas to get you started.
When choosing a party theme, keep your child’s nursery décor in mind. Is his or her room decorated with fairies, superheroes, sports paraphernalia or animals? Try purchasing invitations, décor, gifts and thank you cards that complement the nursery.
Your child will love seeing their favorite book or movie character come to life at their party. Whether it’s Mickey Mouse, Cinderella or Old McDonald, you should be able to find paper ware, balloons and décor that feature your chosen character or at least tie into the Disney, princess or farm theme. Make the party extra special by inviting someone to come dressed up as your child’s favorite character.
Since your child is still quite young, he or she probably won’t care much about their party theme. If this is the case, you can choose a theme that your family will love. If your family is into sports, for example, a sports theme will be appreciated. If your family loves to travel, choose an international party theme. Your baby won’t mind, and your family will love your thoughtfulness.
Although your child is too young to write, it is still important to send thank you cards after the party is over. Choose fun designs like monogram thank you cards featuring a photo of your child enjoying his or her birthday party.
