First Birthday Party Idea, shared by Kelly from Florida:
A fun 1st birthday party idea is to have a scrapbook memories activity. Instead of just taking pictures and creating a scrapbook later, add a memories moment to your baby's 1st birthday party.
Here are three great tips for how to make it happen. The first is a really simple idea, the other two get a little more creative.
The end result will be a special activity for your baby's first celebration and an almost done scrapbook by the end of the party!
A simple first birthday party idea is to have one piece of paper out for everyone to sign and leave their messages on. If you're going to have a lot of guests, have several sheets in case the first one gets filled up.
Cut the paper ahead of time to the right size so it will fit in your scrapbook. Use paper that either doesn't have a pattern or has a very subtle pattern so the messages will show up. You can embellish the page by having a patterned piece of paper behind the plain one.
An alternative to this method is to already have the pages glued into the scrapbook and ready for signing. It turns your scrapbook into a guest book! People will enjoy seeing what others have written and flip through the pages to see what you've already put in the scrapbook.
Have all of your guests write out a short, meaningful message for baby. Since the messages are short no one should have trouble coming up with a few words.
These messages will mean a lot to your child when they get older and can look back on all of the birthday wishes that friends and family shared.
All you need to do is provide a piece of paper for each guest and ask them to share their sentiments. Make sure to have extras on hand in case of goof-ups. After the party, take all of the slips and glue them into your baby's first b-day scrapbook.
You can use pre-done "scrapbook look" slips to make it easier on you later or make your own. After everyone has filled out their slips display them on a table by your guest book so everyone can see what was written. This is a fun and simple first birthday party idea that makes your memories even fuller later on.
Your memories moment can be a big activity at your baby's first party. Gather pictures of your little one, scrapbook embellishments, blank paper, glitter, colorful pens and scissors.
Get a scrapbook that uses insertable pages and have enough blank insertable pages on hand for every guest. Each guest creates their own scrapbook page, writing their own messages for your little boy or girl.
This is a very special way to celebrate baby's first b-day. Guests can decorate the page with a photo of them and your baby together and add embellishments. Combine this idea with letters for baby 1st birthday ideas for a truly special first birthday party idea.Categories: 1st Birthday Party Ideas
