How to Celebrate 1st Birthday
With that in mind, if you try too hard to make baby’s 1st birthday perfect, neither you nor your little one will end up having a good time. And that’s what it’s all about, right?
Here are a few ideas of ways you celebrate your child’s first birthday and really mark the occasion.
Book a photoshoot
You can opt for simple portraits, to remember how your child looked as they turned one or you can choose portraits of your child in their birthday outfit (pretty dress or tiny suit perhaps). Alternatively they could be with a beautiful backdrop with props and accessories.
Oh….and don’t forget it’s a family occasion so be sure to include siblings and parents on the photographs too!!
Give baby a new first experience
I’m not talking bungee jumping or throwing themselves out of an aeroplane but something simple and one that they will enjoy. It might be just letting them taste a new food or watching a movie they haven’t seen. Whatever you choose, you will always have something to say…..’do you remember when you did that for the first time on your first birthday?’
Have a special day trip
Write a letter to Baby
Get family & friends to write a message
Plant a tree.
Have a party!
Make a footprint or handprint
Why not turn it into a tradition and do a print every year!
Create a birthday time capsule
capsule with other mementos that your baby will find fun to reminisce on in years to come. Bury the capsule somewhere in your garden or hide it somewhere in the house. It will be thrilling for your child to open in years to come, when they have grown up.
Bake a cake
