Make Your Kid's First Birthday Memorable

ParentCircle

The first birthday of their child is an exciting and momentous occasion for parents. Often, parents go all out in their efforts to make this event a grand one. But, what should parents do to ensure this once-in-a-lifetime-affair is nothing short of memorable?

To begin with, make a checklist of important things to keep in mind. These should include the budget (you would not want to spend beyond your means), the birthday party theme, the birthday cake with healthy birthday cakes becoming popular, the birthday games that include time-tested ones like treasure games and hokey- pokey and, if you want, return gift ideas to ensure a smile on the faces of the little guests when they return home.

Popsugar.com has prepared a list of 120 birthday party themes that include a lego-themed party, a rainbow birthday party, a ghostbusters party and a girlie camping-themed party.

When North West, the daughter of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, turned one, her birthday celebrations included a Ferris wheel and a rainbow cake.

However, sheknows.com advises there’s nothing wrong with throwing an over-the-top first birthday party for your child as long as parents acknowledge what’s really going on. Renting a pony, getting an expensive cake (which the toddler won’t remember much) or setting up candy bars can be avoided.
