Planning A Child’s 1st Birthday Party And Making It Special

Define what you’re good at. Can you cook, craft, bake, or organize? What skills do you bring to the party?

Define what others are good at doing.  My wife has often told me, “Honey, I need some balloon decorations, like superheroes.” I’m a professional balloon entertainer, which is no big deal, but my wife would not ask her brother-in-law, the electrician, to make balloon figures. 

Network with friends – This may be your first child, but the neighbor down the street is on their seventh child and has a lot of leftover birthday supplies/ideas.  Some of the best decorations are sitting in a closet just waiting to be used or, better yet, finding a new home.

Hire people – Do not expect the family to be servers or relatives to entertain a crowd.  Hire professionals who can make your event special, classy, and unique.

Delegate—First birthdays are unique, and many people in your family would like to contribute to your child’s special event. Aunts, uncles, and grandparents would be happy to help out on this special day if you ask them.
