Besides the actual day of their birth, a baby’s first birthday is hands down one of the most exciting times, both for parents and baby! Many may argue that baby has no clue what’s going on during their birthday party. While that might be absolutely true, one thing that they do understand is the excitement that surrounds the big day, and the fact that they are the center of attention! Watching their little eyes light up with excitement and wonder is a memory that I’ll remember for both of my children, long into their adulthood.

My suggestion for first birthdays is to keep the baby the center of the celebration. Think of the party from their perspective! The little things like bright colors and noise makers that may seem corny to you, are probably pretty exciting to baby! Let me go wild! What are baby’s favorite activities to do? Making noise and making messes of course! Make sure that their party is full of the opportunity for them to do plenty of both, and they are guaranteed to have a good time! Remember, baby’s learn and play most through sensory activities. Be creative and choose activities that allow them to touch and hold different textures and they’ll have the time of their lives!
