Make it Grand
Since this day holds a lot of importance, it needs to be as grand as a festival. You may invite your extended family and your friends, and celebrate this day with all the people who are close to you. You may even get invitation cards printed that will inform the people about the venue, date and time of the party.
Have a Fun Theme to Your Party
No matter how big or small you decide to have your child’s first birthday bash, a theme will level up the celebrations. You can pick a theme that will actually excite your little one and will also be appreciated by your guests. For instance, if you are parents to a girl, you may consider themes like: Barbie doll, Power Puff Girls, Fairytale, etc., while if your little boy is turning one, then themes like Superman, Jungle Book, Batman, etc. can be taken into consideration. Such themes will also provide for a great backdrop and will help you get some amazing pictures of your child. You may also include some flowers in your decorations, which will only brighten up the entire venue.
Get a Scrumptious Birthday Cake
A happy birthday cake is one of the most important elements of a birthday party, and to make sure that you get a cake that does not only looks good but also tastes divine, you need to plan ahead. You should order your cake from a reputed online platform. And since such portals have a wide range of cakes, you will be able to pick the best one. Also, if you are planning on a grand party, then you should probably pick a multi-tier cake that will be able to serve all your guests and will also receive a lot of compliments from your guests. But if you are having a simple and small gathering, you can opt for a smaller cake. But, be sure that it has some special factor in it. For instance, you can get a cartoon cake, 1st birthday cake, or a photo cake that will surely bring a smile to your toddler’s face.
Organize a Game/Activity Session
To add a bit of fun and joy in this party, you can organize an activity session in which all your guests can participate. Such a session will help everyone enjoy each moment of the party and also make new friends. While the children can play games like building blocks, guess the color and even enjoy a ride on their favorite animal or vehicle; the elders can enjoy playing musical chairs, spin the bottle, passing the parcel, etc.
Get some Interesting Return Gifts
A successful birthday party is incomplete without return gifts. So, it is better to pick up a bunch of gifts that you can give to your guests as a memento of this birthday party. You may pick some soft-toys, key chains, chocolates, muffins, cupcakes or even a gift hamper for the children present at the party. You may pick a gift that would always remind your guests of the gala time they spent at the party. Such gifts may include an engraved key-ring, personalized t-shirts, photo frames, cushions, etc.
These were some of the ideas that will help you level up your celebrations at your toddler’s first birthday. Also, we would like to wish you and your little one with a life full of health and happiness.
