Your baby’s first birthday is a moment that deserves a noteworthy celebration. Not only is this an important first milestone in your child’s life, but it also marks the moment of joy as you have gotten through the first tough year of infanthood. A first birthday party should be a happy celebration where all friends and family are invited. In most cases, this type of party is geared toward adults rather than a large group of children. You’ll want to send out cute first birthday invitations that you can personalize with a series of pictures documenting your child’s growth.
There are many different possible themes for the first birthday party, so you can choose something that you think is cute and stylish. Be prepared to take lots of pictures of the big day, so make sure you designate a friend or family member as an unofficial photographer. Many parents decide to have their child wear a special outfit for the day. One possible idea is to order a onesie that you customize with your child’s first name and the number one. You could even use the same design from your child’s birthday shirt for his or her invitation with an upload your own design style.
The best time of day to have this party is in between your baby’s naps. That may be sometime after lunch or in the late afternoon. Serve a selection of delicious snacks or sandwiches to your guests. One of the greatest moments is when your child tastes his or her birthday cake for the first time. Many parents order a special small smash cake just for their baby. This moment is a great photo opportunity, but be prepared for things to get messy. At the end of the party, look through your pictures, and consider making a special first birthday photo album, so you can keep a record of this special day for all time.
