You have invited your first birthday boy over for the day, and you are ready to give him a memorable first birthday. Before you make that big purchase, there are several other things you need to do. Here’s what you need to know to make sure your first birthday party goes off without a hitch.
Know What You Need and Want
When you go shopping for your theme, make sure you have chosen a piece that is appropriate for a boy. Don’t think you can get away with “anything goes” when it comes to a theme. Most boys do not like bright colours, especially if it is bright reds, pinks, or blues. If you do happen to choose such a theme, make sure you use subtle colours or something neutral, so that there isn’t too much bright colour.
Also, don’t be afraid to choose more than one theme for your baby boy’s party. It can be fun to mix and match the various themes to create a unique look and feel for your party.
The Right Theme
One of the best ways to create an attractive theme is by using a photograph of your first child as your centrepiece. There are many different choices of pictures you can find online or in magazines, or even in the children’s section of your local grocery store. Make sure that any photo you pick is a high resolution, though. That way, you can use that photograph for decorations, invitations, and other items you will want to use during the party.
Once you’ve chosen a theme, it is time to start thinking about decorations. Decorations can range from simple centrepieces to something fancier such as paper lanterns. A little creativity goes a long way when it comes to creating a unique first birthday theme.
Balloons and more!
Balloons and streamers can be a great addition to any party. You may choose to have balloons at your party that has a unique design and colour, or you may decide to have streamers that are in multiple colours. Either way, having these items will help you to stand out and make your party an attractive one.
How About A Cake?
If you don’t mind giving the cake to your son, don’t be afraid to make a cake yourself. It does not have to cost much, and it will provide him with a gift that will last a lifetime. Your cake will help to celebrate his first birthday and will also be something he can enjoy for years to come.
Presents, Lots of Presents!
