Prepare your camera and camcorder to capture the moments. If you are into scrapbooking, put all the pictures, invitations, thank you notes, etc. to your scrapbook. Decorate your house depending on the party theme that you choose. Buy the necessary decors like balloons, piñatas, banners, streamers, confetti, etc. Use tablecloth, utensils, and dinnerware that match the theme of the party.
The first birthday party will be remembered forever by you and the guests, but probably not by the baby. It's important to keep it simple and relaxed. Even a simple birthday party can be overwhelming for your baby, so keep the guest list small and the timeframe short.
Regardless of the location of the party, you will require an array of party supplies. The supplies are chosen according to the age and preferences of the person whose birthday is to be celebrated. You will need invitations and different types of event decorations such as brightly colored balloons, hats, bells, whistles, costumes, chairs, tables, party linens and food service items.
When my younger daughter Hannah was in preschool, I noticed that parents would tuck birthday party invitations into the children's open cubby squares. Though this method did not present a problem when all children in a class were invited to a party, when some youngsters were invited and others were not - particularly when the invitations were in brightly colored envelopes - it was all-too-clear to the ones not invited that there was no envelope in their cubbyhole. In the preschool years, it's better for parents to hand the invitations directly to the other parents or caregivers. Or, if that's not possible due to work schedules, to bite the bullet and mail them. Better yet, to email the invitations if that's an agreeable alternative.
The themed centenary gathering sets make the whole theme real for the children. The children actually feel like pirates, fairies, frogs, or any other character, because of the real surroundings provided by the set. The children just love pretending to be their dream characters on their birthday, and the whole activity adds a lot of fun to the party.
