Interesting Girls 1st Birthday Party Ideas
While it is true that celebrating your child’s first birthday can be both an exhilarating and a very momentous occasion for you, it is also true that your child is too young to even understand what a birthday party means.
So it is completely alright if you do not want to throw a huge birthday bash and instead spend a quiet and happy moment with your very close family o even go off for a holiday – just the parents and the child. However, if you do opt for a party, here are some ideas to get you going.
First Birthday Party Ideas For Girls
Take out prints of your baby girl in some of the cutest poses and form a collage of pictures. Turn this into a birthday invitation card. Buy toy blocks (either plastic or wooden) and stick your birthday invite on it.
You could also give a small baby book to each with the party invitation written on the first page of the book and signed off with the baby’s name. Shape and fold your card in the form of a baby’s diaper and write inside it! Once you have written inside the card, you can even stick a small safety pin to hold the card in place.
Cut out the number 1 from a piece of cardboard. Either color it or stick colored paper on it. Write your invite on it. You could even stick your kid’s picture on the number if you wish too. Instead of writing a normal invite, try making a rhyming poem while writing out your invites. Buy tiny clothes that your kids used to wear during just after birth and stitch your invite onto it.
For each of the food that you place on the table add a small card beside it saying why you think your kid should eat it when she grows up. Also let the decoration be such that it looks really girly and colorful. Lots of streamers making stripes on the walls, balloons hanging like huge polka dots from the ceiling would look very appropriate for the occasion. After all your tiny one is yet too young to have a proper themed party!
Decorate the exterior with lots of painted flower pots and stick into the mud painted paper flowers of a myriad colors. You could even have a lot of colorful pinwheels simply stuck onto the mud near the entrance door. They rotate as the wind blows and look very cute and sweet.
The entrance door could have either “Happy Birthday” or even the name of your child written with streamers or ribbons. Also when each of the guests arrive hand them a bag of whistles, balloons etc. which they can blow once inside together with a party hat which each of them would wear and make the occasion brighter.
For the toddlers and slightly bigger kids who might be present, you could have a huge basketful of soft toys, rag dolls, Barbies etc. in one corner of the room for them to play with. You could even display the various milestones your little one achieved in the past one year through a chart filled with drawings and pictures. For example; the first tooth, the first hair cut etc.
However, if you must have a theme for the party then choose one from her favorite bed time story book and decorate the place according to it. Have a guest book for all the guests to sign and write on before they leave the party. You could even have a “blessing tree” at one corner of the room for each guest to write out a blessing for the little one and pin on it.
Cake and food
The birthday kid or even any of her friends won’t be eating any of the food! So what food you plan is more for the adults. But do keep in mind the basic theme of the first birthday and prepare food accordingly. Some examples are -
A Rainbow Platter of Fruits
It is truly amazing that there is a fruit for all the color of the rainbow. Go ahead and make your rainbow. It will look pretty and colorful and will be nutritious too.
If there are some toddlers or preschoolers, they would enjoy it as well. You could make it with purple grapes, blueberries, green kiwi, yellow pineapple, oranges and red strawberries (or any other fruit of your choice).
Biscuits and Cheese
Have a platter of assorted biscuits – both sweet and salted together with a variety of cheese that the guests would surely enjoy. You could even add tortilla chips, nachos etc. with a variety of dips too. Cartoon figure cookies, bear shaped potato fries, various flower shaped toffees would also be loved by the younger lot.
Don’t forget to keep some teething biscuits for the youngest of the lot (including your little one).
Small sized sandwiches with different fillings (cheese, eggs, vegetable, mashed potato, chicken etc.) are perfect for the occasion. With this, you could also have small meat balls or pulse balls with different types of dips too.
You could have an assortment of cereal bars for the elders and porridge, different flavored cornflakes for the young ones.
No matter what cake you make, make an exact cupcake sized replica for your baby. Keep clicking as you watch your daughter digging into it and enjoying thoroughly. This will also help you to take care of how much sugar you want your child to have and also the various allergic food ingredients that you might want to leave out.
Instant pictures taken of each guest posing with the birthday girl is one of the best party favors for the first birthday. For the younger lot, give a goodie-bag filled with sweets, lollipops, mints etc with the tag “thank you for coming” written on it. Other than the this, you could also give the more usual, soft toys, stickers, balls, bathtub toys, toiletries, school bags, pencil and pen sets, magnets etc. too.Interesting Girls 1st Birthday Party Ideas ,
