Your kids first birthday is no doubt an exciting time for you. Although your child might be unaware of the reason for the happiness, excitement and celebrations, for you this day marks one year of having your baby in your life, one year of immense joy and a thousand memories. As such, it would be a great idea to organize a birthday party for your little one and also in part for yourself to celebrate this day. However, it is important for you to keep in mind that your baby is unlikely to understand much of what is happening and therefore it would not make a lot of sense for you to spend a lot of money on the birthday party.
Many parents end up spending thousands on their child’s birthday party and throw parties that are akin to weddings with hundreds of guests but the truth is, there really is no point in doing this and most of these parents do it in a way of showing off to their friends and to the other parents they know instead of for their child.
An inexpensive but fun party
The most fun part about a birthday party is the planning and the excitement of getting things together for the big day. In the past, parties were small homely affairs with lots of homemade treats and handmade games but today kids first birthdays have become big elegant affairs that are planning by professional event planners which takes most of the fun away from the party. Instead opt to have an old fashioned kid’s birthday party. You can use digital printing to print your own backdrop behind the cake that should not cost you too much. Instead of buying an elegant expensive birthday cake baked by a professional baker, opt to make the birthday cake for the party yourself with the help of your kids.
To add to the fun, you can use digital printing to have a small photo booth where all your little guests can come by and take fun pictures of themselves at the birthday party. You can even opt to have small props that they can pose with to make the party even more fun. Get to know the most in demand printed products right here.
Birthday party treats
Of course, no party would be complete without treats. This said however, it is important for you to remember that most little kids do not eat much and therefore you should make small finger food type treats that will suffice perfectly. Choose to make all the birthday party treats yourself to add to the fun.
