Planning For The First Birthday Of Your Baby Boy

Submitted by: Criss White

Your baby boy is turning one and this extra-special occasion needs to be marked in a spectacular way. Organizing a birthday party celebration with loved ones is the best way to commemorate the occasion.

Though your little boy is still far from understanding everything that is going on, love and attention will certainly be sensed. Having a first birthday party will make your boy feel happy and extra-special.

You can either have a small family party or you could invite friends and their children. It depends on your desires and on the type of celebration that you are imagining.

Who Will be Attending the Party?

Before you start planning, you will have to finish working on the guest list. This important decision will affect all other areas of party preparation.


How many people are you going to invite? Will you keep the party solely to your family, are guests going to bring their children along? Having a party for kids signifies thinking about activities and games that little ones will enjoy.

When you make the guest list, you will have to come up with the invitations. You can certainly invite guests over the phone or by e-mail but a printed invitation will be more special, just like the occasion is.

The invitation should provide information about two aspects of the party: the fact that it is dedicated to a baby boy and the fact that this is his first birthday.

You can achieve that through the shape and colors used in the invitation. It can be cut out in the shape of number one. Blue color will hint that the birthday person is a boy. You can browse various websites to look for invitation ideas and the best wording for this special occasion.

Ask guests to RSVP by a certain date and to mention whether they will be bringing kids along. Once you have the final guest list, you will be capable of moving on with the party planning process.

Decorations, Food and Party Items

You can have many types of decorations for the first birthday of your baby boy. The easiest way to approach the issue is to get blue balloon designs and banners that mention the name of the birthday boy and his age.

Decorations can also be selected on the basis of the party theme.

The theme you choose has to be something that your boy likes and enjoys animals, favorite sports, vehicles or spacecraft. Have pictures drawn, balloons coming in certain shapes and beautiful banners.

Food is very important during a kid s birthday. Make sure that you have a medley available for the needs of the younger visitors. Finger foods, juices, sodas and fresh fruits are all suitable. The birthday cake will be most impressive if it corresponds to the theme and the nuance of the party decorations.

You can organize a very special celebration for your baby boy s first birthday without spending much time and effort on preparations. Get everyone in the family involved, even the birthday boy. What truly matters is getting the entire family together and having some quality time with each other. Enjoy each part of the process and have as much fun as possible.
