How to organize your first birthday?
Mikołaj's first birthday is fast approaching. It's good that I did a survey on the blog, because first of all I know that the topic of organizing a party for children interests you very much, and you made me realize that I really have little time for everything and it's high time to start planning and organizing.
1. Colors and theme
It is thanks to consistent colors that everything will be harmonious, we will avoid buying unnecessary things, and all this will also look beautiful in the photos, which cannot be missing from this important day. How do you choose a theme? I believe that there is no point in making our childhood dreams come true if our child already has targeted interests. So let's ask ourselves the question: what does our child like the most?
Post about ideas for birthday themes you will find here.
2. guest list
It is on its basis that we will know where to organize a party (at home, in the garden, with our parents, who, for example, have more space or maybe in a restaurant).
Since we have a guest list, we can measure our strength on intentions. We have quite a large team of 5 children + 10 parents + grandparents, so I will skip cooking dinner for everyone, after all, we do not want to spend the whole day in the kitchen! We will not decide on any restaurant, and it will be too cold for a party in the garden, so we will organize the party at our home. Hence I know that we will serve our guests a cake and small snacks.
4. Party time
We know the menu, so now we know what time to invite guests. When not serving dinner, we should not invite guests at a typical lunch time. So we are initially planning our party at 16:00 PM. It is important that this time is adapted to the activity of our child and should not fall, for example, during a nap or in the afternoon whining phase.
Since we already know everything about our party, we can prepare invitations. We can order them in a professional printing house or make them yourself. You know that I love DIY projects so I will definitely make ours myself.
You can find a post about our invitations here.
6. Accessories, decorations, gadgets, attractions
We have colors and theme, guest list and menu, so we can order or make accessories, decorations and gadgets such as balloons, paper plates, hats, streamers and banners for the right number of people.
Post about decorations and attractions on our birthdays you will find here.
And now I get to work and start searching based on the above points. Of course, I will keep you updated on everything!
