Life is unpredictable. One moment you are a new mom holding the most precious treasure in your arms and the next you know they are standing on their feet showing off their toothless smile. Then you wonder where has the one year passed. Your baby's first birthday is a remarkable event since it represents the importance of celebrating their first milestone in their lives. Preparations for this big event must be made with great care in order to make this event a huge success amongst your guests.

Planning and organizing for the birthday party requires a lot of work on the part of the parents. If your baby's birthday is just in few weeks, you might need to make the guest list and the first birthday photo invitations well in advance. Preparing the 1st birthday photo invitations can be fun. First you need to choose a favorite photo of your baby. These can either be clicked fresh or you can even use recent snapshots of them for the invitations.

Plan of making the 1st birthday photo invitations are little appealing? Then why not go in for background themes. There are a number of online websites that offer different themes such as polka dots, bubbles, circles, stripes, flowers, butterflies and many more that will look attractive with your baby's first birthday photo invitations. The text for the invitations can be simple or you can even go in for jingles or rhymes depending on your creativity skills.

Thinking of whether to go in for themed parties? Well themed parties prove to make the tasks of the parents much easier and simpler. Since your baby does not have a favorite cartoon character, movie or personality, you can easily go in for Sesame Street, stuffed penguins or teddy bear themes that will nicely coordinate with your baby's first birthday. You can even take the help of your friends and family to help you organize according to the theme selected by you.

On the decorative front, you might be interested in purchasing colorful balloons in the shades of red, yellow, white, pink etc. Balloons might need to be placed outside the children's reach since popping balloons can frighten your baby. For added effect, you can have cartoon characters cut out or you can even go in for life size wall decals of Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh etc and have them placed at the entrance so that older kids can have pictures clicked with these famous characters

Food and beverages can be simple since many of the babies are still in the nursing stage. You can order sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs or even create your own unique dishes. Lemonades can be served along with wines and other beverages for the adults. Cake can either be cupcakes or a full cake decorated or baked as per the theme.

A lot of fun filled activities can be arranged for the kids so that they can have fun. You can arrange for singing and dancing competitions where your baby can also contribute by clapping hands and shaking their cute hands and legs. Other games like Musical Chairs, mimicking contests and other games can also be added to the list.

Last but not the least the party favors for the baby's first birthday can include a variety of candies, chocolates, cup cakes for the kids.
