Planning Your Baby’s First Birthday Party

Your baby’s first birthday is an exciting time. One of the best parts of being a parent is getting to experience all of your little one’s “firsts” with them. Our guide will help you ensure that your baby’s first birthday party is a success!

Choose a Convenient Time – Babies get cranky when they haven’t had their nap yet, so make sure you schedule the party around your child’s naptime – preferably after their nap. It’s not a fun party if the guest of honor is grumpy.

Set Up a Photo Gallery – Get printouts of all the photos you took during your baby’s first year of life and create a photo gallery for your guests to look at during the party. This is a celebration of your new little one’s first year in the world.

Get the Camera Ready – Make sure you have your camera or camera phone charged and ready to go. You will want plenty of pictures to look back on once the party is over. This is likely the first time your baby has experienced cake, so make sure the cameras are rolling to film their adorable reaction!

Get an Amazing Cake – One of the most entertaining aspects of a child’s first birthday is watching them try to eat cake for the first time. You also need to remember to choose a cake for your guests! When you need a fantastic cake – both for your baby and your guests, order from Jarosch Bakery. We create custom cakes in Schaumburg, IL, from scratch.
