Your baby’s first birthday is an important milestone worthy of celebration! Throwing a first birthday party can seem like an overwhelming endeavour but with a little planning and preparation, everything can go smoothly for a fun, memorable day. This 1st birthday party planning checklist and essential birthday party supplies list is a must-have that will make your job a lot easier and the planning process a lot more organised.
A birthday can be seen as a serious or joyful time depending on one’s age and one’s attitude towards life. Another year has passed and we look back on failures and successes. We think about our goals for the future and reflect on the past year. These are all thoughts that may come up on a birthday, but the main thing is to use a birthday as an opportunity to celebrate life and be joyful for the chance to be with friends and family.
Some people like to choose a theme to decorate the party but, I just like to get neutral decorations around the room as we celebrate many birthdays during the year in my home. So I basically change some balloon colours and garlands.
If you have time, think about DIY décor and messy games for the little one such a cooking Rice Krispie cakes or hand print cards.
They really love it and the party will be super cool for everyone!
