Baby Birthday Party Ideas

Read through our Baby Birthday Party Ideas and incorporate the best ideas into your party.

Your baby's first birthday is a moment which deserves real celebration and turning 1 is a theme by itself. But what is important to remember is that the birthday child is not really aware of this, so this party is more for family and friends.

What is really important when planning your girls 1st birthday party is to keep the party short and simply and most importantly to avoid tears. You don't have to go overboard, just invite the closest family and friends, your baby maybe will feel overwhelmed by strangers if you invite to many people.

Have your girls 1st birthday party in the morning or at lunchtime to avoid afternoon naps. Plan before hand, more you plan, smoother you party will run and more fun you will have.

Birth Certificate Invites
Photocopy a birth certificate or a birth announcement (use pink paper). For the cover of the invitations use the photocopied certificates. Write the party information on the back. Put glitter or confetti inside pink envelope so it spills out when the invitation is opened.

If You are Happy and You know it
Parent's sing and the kids & babies match the action. "If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands... clap your hands" the children have to match the action by clapping. Then you go again "If you're happy and you know it, then you surely want to show it, if you are happy and you know it turn around... turn around" Then you go again and end with nod your head... stamp your feet etc.

Check out our cool Baby birthday party ideas for cake.

1st Birthday Cupcakes
Make or buy cupcakes, frost with pink and silver frosting. Put 1 candle in the middle. Personally I think for 1st birthday parties, cupcakes with 1 candle, is a much better alternative then a cake. Cupcakes are less messy.

First Birthday Cake - Picture of First Birthday Cake
Make a sheet cake and cut out a number one. Fill the cake with strawberry cream and vanilla cream. Frost the cake pink. Decorate the cake with candy- make flower looking candy on top of the cake. Look at the picture of the cake to understand better.

Goody Bags

Look at our cool Baby birthday party ideas for favors below.

Party bags are dangerous at this age (such as balloons and sweets). But If you really want to give a going away present this idea is safe: a soft toy plus a yummy big luxury cupcake.

Decorate the cupcake using red string liquorice on the cupcake to resemble a tied package "cupcake", make a bow with the liquorice. Or add a real pink ribbon around the cupcake, so sweet.
