The first birthday is a big deal for many parents. Since you want to make this experience memorable, here are a few things you should know when planning the first year kiddie party.
Every kiddie party must have activities and games.
A child’s first birthday party is a very special time. The funny part is that because your child is still a year old, he or she won’t be able to do anything so the ones who are participating will just be the guests. So you don’t have to spend too much, it is best to make the party fairly short. If you can make this under an hour or two, that is perfectly alright.
One problem often faced by parents in a party is that the baby could be asleep during the party or it gets cranky. Since you want your baby to be awake during this time, you better schedule the party in between their nap time.
If money is a bit of a problem during this economic time, invite only a few guests like only family members and friends. This will give you time to show the baby around to them.
Instead of having the party done in a restaurant that will surely offer you a package deal, why don’t you have the party at home? Your baby could be overwhelmed by the place and the number of guests so this should be done with a small group and in a place where they are comfortable.
