1st Birthday Poems
This year of firsts has brought so much.
Delightful smiles, giggles and such.
First steps, first laughs, first words, first hugs.
A precious sweet smile lights up our lives
Our little family just continues to thrive.
We are so happy to celebrate
Please join us on this special date.
Giggles and goos
Tickles and coos
On this day we celebrate
The birth of our baby
And we just can’t wait.
Oh blessed day!
We waited for so long to say
It’s our little baby’s first birthday
All the joy we’ve seen this year
We’d like to to celebrate with all those near and dear
Our life is blessed in so many ways
This amazing child has graced our days
With unconditional love and joy
We celebrate our baby boy
So please come join us if you can
To celebrate the birthday of our little man
1st Birthday Party Tips
- Keep food really simple (for little guests to enjoy) or plan to have a kids’ food table and adults’ food table with more “sophisticated” options.
- Plan the party around the child’s nap time and don’t be afraid to enforce an official end time if your child needs to nap.
- Two hours is plenty of time for a 1st birthday party.
- KISS – Keep it simple, silly. First birthdays are about celebrating this wonderful addition to your family. You don’t need to go overboard with decorations and food.
- Assign a family member or friend to be the party photographer – it will free you up as the host to keep the party going and allow you to have all the great photo ops captured.
- Send out invitations at least three weeks in advance. You’ll want to make sure all the important people can make it.
A first birthday celebration is such an amazing time in a family’s life. Enjoy yourself and be sure to take some time out for yourself! After all, you’ve worked hard this year. Happy birthday to your little one! We hope your 1st birthday celebration is magnificent.
