Throwing a 1st Birthday Party

Throwing a 1st Birthday party can seem like a daunting task; 1st Birthday Invitations, decorations, party supplies, food, cake, balloons, games and activities. And while you are juggling everything you need to take pictures so that the memories last forever.

Date & Invitations
The First Step is setting the date for the 1st Birthday Party and sending out the invitations.

Your 1st Birthday Party invitations should go out about 3 weeks in advances. That will allow guest to RSVP for the event. If this is a busy time of year consider sending your invitations a week earlier.

Decorations and Party Supplies
Our recommendation for 1st Birthday Parties is keep the decorations and party supplies simple, remember this party is more for you and your friends and family than the baby. So consider a few decorations, paper plates, cups and balloons to be enough to stage your party.

Partyware Money Saving Tip: Purchase less 1st Birthday tableware itmes then guests coming to the party and also get a solid color that matches your decor. Place the 1st Birthday plates on top and solid on the bottom of the pile, this way if you run out of the Birthday plates everything matches. FYI Solid color plates cost less and can be used for other events.

Again a simple menu is better, that way you should be able to get everything set up quickly and not worry about the food.
Focus on getting a nice little cake that your One Year Old can destroy and have another that the guests can eat.

Simple Activities for Young Children

Pop the Bubbles
Have someone or a bubble machine blow bubbles and have the kids run around and pop them. Have a towel for wiping off hands and consider telling parents to bring some play clothes for this event.

Coins in the Cup
Take a large jar/jug with wide opening and fill half way with water, place a small cup, shotglass or fingerbowl in the bottom of the jar/jug (in center) and fill about two inches from the top.

Each child is give the same amount of coins 5 to 10 and challenged to see how many they can sink in the cup at the bottom of the jar. You can play serveral times and the child getting the most in wins that round.

Beach Ball Battle
You will need 6 - 10 beach balls in two colors or styles and a line of tape to separate the room into two sides. Divide the beach balls (sould have same number of each 3, 4, or 5) and place one color on one side and the other color on the opposite side.

Now tell the children they need to get their beach balls on the other side of the line. This is fun as young kids try to get the balls across the line without knowing exactly what they are doing. It will keep you and the kids entertained for a little while.
