Any parent dreams of celebrating their child’s success and joys through each and every step of their life. This includes the most important part which is their growth. However, as the years pass by you might find yourself wishing they were small as they once were and feel sad throwing such parties as time goes by. But that is what life is all about. So leaving aside the deep part of this ‘life’, here are some tips you need to consider when throwing a party for your baby.
Don’t stress out
Understand that your baby would never have any memory of this party or buy sophie the giraffe they might get. In simple they wouldn’t even understand what it going on. So don’t stress yourself too much over perfecting this, but rather learn to enjoy the moment with your baby and family. After all what matters the most is that you are all there for your baby and not hosting the party of the season!
Don’t go over the top
You might be tempted to go overboard with all the planning and decorations for this party. But remember that you don’t need to top Michelle’s party that she hosted for her son’s first year or bake a cake with 6 layers! Keep things simple and learn to work with what you got. What matters at the end of the day is that you have fond memories to look back to and not that you were able to come up with the greatest baby gifts ideas!
Set the right food
Just because this is a party for your baby and you’ll be having a lot of kids running about, doesn’t mean that the food you choose to serve should only be things that kids would love to it. Try to have a mix of adult and children food that all will love! This way no one goes in hunger and everyone is happy.
Keep the cake simple
You might want to go all out and bake a four layered unicorn cake or a stand up dinosaur cake, while it is alright to do so, think of the cost you would have to bear if you are ordering it and the practical side of distributing it to everyone. So instead of going over the top you can always set out a simple yet memorable cake that could be shared and enjoyed by everyone!
Use the above tips and plan your baby’s birthday in a less stressful and more fun filled mood to have one memorable day you could always look back to!
