Your baby’s first birthday is a very special day both for your little one and for you. This is your chance to celebrate your anniversary as parents and is one of the first milestones your child will experience. Whether you throw a huge bash or have an intimate gathering, baby’s first birthday is sure to be special. Send out some personalized invitations to get the word out, like this adorable Cars Birthday Invitation. Here are some ideas to make the event memorable:
A birthday brunch
If you’re looking to have a more informal, intimate gathering with family and close friends, a casual birthday brunch may be just what you’re looking for. Choose your favorite brunch spot or host it right in your own home. Instead of giving your baby a cake, photograph him or her eating his or her first taste of a pancake or waffle. Feel free to stick a candle in the breakfast creation.
Bubbles and balloons
Keep the theme simple by sticking with bubbles and balloons – two things kids love! Amp up a plain balloon by attaching crepe-paper circles and stripes with double-stick tape. Offer your guests bubbles to blow and take home.
Have your party guests write a memory of your baby’s first year, or a blessing for the little birthday boy or girl. Take a picture of each guest with the child and combine all of the words and photos into a baby scrapbook your child will love to look back on when he or she is older.
