Can you believe it’s been a year since you had your baby? You want to celebrate, of course, but planning a birthday party for a one-year- old is a little different than planning a party for a five-year-old. Your baby won’t care about the decorations or the size of the cake – but that doesn’t mean you can’t throw a great party to commemorate the occasion!
Use these tips to make the party enjoyable for both you and your little one.
1. Personalize it with custom invitations.
Though Facebook events and evites are useful for tracking RSVP numbers, there’s something special about sending paper invitations to guests. You can merge the online and physical world by creating invitations online and sending them out.
“I recommend sending an online invitation. Not only does that make your job a lot easier — a few clicks and you’re done — but guests will also be able to RSVP online, which means that there’s even less work for you,” says Rachel Sales of the online print shop Smilebox.
“To ensure that friends designate part of their weekend to your baby’s party, create an invitation that features your baby’s irresistible smile.”
