The first birthday – one and for the rest of life!
You shouldn’t invite to a holiday of people unfamiliar to the child, let it will be better than guests a little, than a heap to the people which will frighten only the kid.
It will be also quite good to prepare the invitation for each guest. On birthday of the daughter I made invitations: on the computer I developed design and I unpacked on a photoprinter. You can order invitations, there are many handymen who will help you in this case, simply find them in the Internet. It is possible invitations to make and with the child, let it will put a print of the handle for example, and you will write beautifully the text. Actually options the great variety, here the main thing would be desire. Invitations should be handed over to guests in a week – two till a holiday that at anybody the plans didn’t change at the last minute. Also don’t forget to specify in the invitation a place and time of carrying out a holiday.
Fix time celebrations according to a daily routine of your child that the kid was had a rest and slept, it is best of all after a dinner. If you invite guests with small children, try to consider and their time of a dream. It isn’t so obligatory to tighten a holiday at many o’clock, differently to the kid it will be already uninteresting and it is boring.
Decoration of the house, game and entertainment. Now it is possible to find everything in children’s shops that is necessary for a holiday: both garlands, and balloons, both crackers, and a candle and there is a lot of only. Children’s goods are on sale everywhere. Certainly all this is very interesting to the child, but don’t forget about its safety. As I have the printer, I didn’t buy a garland, and made it, simply found through a search engine in the Internet beautiful letters, unpacked and cut out. We decorated a hall with multi-colored balls and sparks. All guests on an entrance were given out a beautiful bright cap on the head and a pipe which we bought in children’s shop. For a festive table too there is different jewelry: beautiful sets of disposable tableware, bright swords for a canape, tubules for drinks of different forms.
That guests didn’t start missing, I prepared some competitions with small gifts. “Guess that I ate”: I bought some different jars with baby food, I wrapped up them a foil and I numbered. Guests had to guess on taste that is a part of some mashed potatoes, the more components, the more interestingly. At the end who guessed wins the main prize, for example a calendar card or a magnet on the refrigerator more, the rests can distribute incentive prizes, let it there will be for example Chupa Chups. “To whom I am similar”: on a Whatman paper I pasted from both parties the photo and a photo of the father at the age of one year, and in the center of a photo of the daughter and I wrote criteria by which guests have to estimate on whom the baby probably more: Nose, Forehead, Lips, Chin, etc. Also in a year at all parents will surely prepare many photos of the child, my council: you don’t store them in the computer, be not too lazy better and unpack, buy a beautiful album and you store them there. This album can be shown to guests, it will be interesting to everything to look as the child grows.
Still recently heavenly small lamps became very popular, we bought a little and then all together started them in the sky, it was very beautiful and the daughter was delighted, the main thing observe security measures.
The first birthday. Festive menu. Don’t forget to consider and preferences of children, prepare on a table a cheese plate, a little simple salads, we for example in a family very much love Caesar and Greek salad, a meat plate with a sausage and tasty myasky, small canapes on swords, here my favourite are very actual: cheese, lemon and the fruit jelly, unusual taste and to children will be pleasant. Also we prepared meat roll and the baked chicken. Cut fruit and vegetables on plates. Prepare for children a cracker for example or favourite cookies. We didn’t buy juice in shop, and cooked tasty compote which approaches not only to adults, but also children. In general all have different preferences in food, but don’t recommend to prepare for a festive table those dishes which we eat every day, for example cutlets, potato or a stuffed cabbage, prepare more interesting salads better. And the most important hero of the occasion – a pie. Here such it turned out at us by trial and error, about three hours left on its preparation. Or order, the main thing let it will be bright and tasty. The first birthday
Gifts. Present to the child a beautiful interesting toy, it isn’t necessary to buy gifts “for growth”, as well as things and all the rest. If the child has many toys, both clothes and a new set of children’s ware won’t be superfluous.
Don’t forget about photos and video, ask somebody or employ the photographer to imprint this moment of life of your baby.
All the rest depends on your desire and the imagination, dare and everything at you will turn out! Also remember the most important rule: The childhood doesn’t repeat!
