Here are some tips on what to do (and what not to do) when planning your baby’s first birthday party.

Do pick a theme.
One of the best things about planning a first birthday party is that you can go all out with the decorations and activities.

And if you need some inspiration, there are plenty of great ideas out there—just do a quick search online or on Pinterest.

Don’t forget to include food options for everyone.
When you’re planning the menu for your baby’s birthday party, it’s important to remember that not everyone eats the same things. Be sure to include food options that will accommodate guests with different dietary restrictions, such as vegetarian, gluten-free, or dairy-free. Also, if you have any friends or family members who have allergies, be sure to ask them in advance about what they can and can’t eat. The last thing you want is for someone to get sick at your child’s birthday party!

Do plan activities that both kids and adults will enjoy.
Not all birthday parties have to be filled with non-stop games and activities—but it can certainly help to plan ahead so that both kids and adults will have a good time. If you’re not sure where to start, there are plenty of great resources online that offers ideas for kids’ birthday parties. And if you want something that everyone can enjoy together, try considering activities like face painting or a photo booth—these are always hits with guests of all ages!

Planning your baby’s first birthday party doesn't have to be daunting—just follow these simple tips and you'll be on your way to throwing the perfect party for your little one's big day!
