How to Plan Your Baby Girl's First Birthday Party
Start planning the perfect party for your baby girl today
I remember as a new mom how overwhelmed I felt when planning my very first birthday party. You want it to be a big hit and the pictures to show how great it was. You worry what your guests will think and will feel like you didn't do enough. Take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy your baby girl's first birthday party. Take it from me, a super busy stay at home mom to three children, you will get through this with flying colors. I'll walk you through it.
First, you need to choose a location for your party. For a baby's first birthday, I highly recommend having the party at home or at a close family members. It's easiest when baby is in a familiar setting with all of her things. It makes diaper changes and feedings much easier on you. Also you're prepared for anything. If baby spits up all over her outfit, no problem just change her clothes. If baby gets tired and cranky, no problem just put her down for a nap. Having the party at home will make things less stressful for you and your baby girl so that everyone can have a good time.
Second, you need to decide who to invite. One year olds can get overstimulated very easily. They don't need a loud, energetic party with tons of kids bouncing off the walls. I think it's best to keep a first birthday party super small, inviting only immediate family and best friends. At my little girl's first birthday party we invited my parents and sibling, my husbands parents and sibling, and my closest friend (because her kids are both close in age to my little one). Even with the small guest list, my daughter still got overwhelmed and had to take an early nap.
Third, you need to pick a time. This is very important. You want to pick the time of day that works best for your little girl. This is one time you don't worry about pleasing everyone else. For us, the best time is any time after 9:00am but before the 12:00 noon meltdown. So, we usually have our children's birthday parties at 9:30-11:30am.
Fourth, you need to decide on the food. If your party will run until 11:30 or noon, then you really should serve a lunch. You could cook out hamburgers and hotdogs, order snack trays from Chick-fil-A, have pizza delivered, or make finger sandwiches. There are a lot of options, just be sure you don't leave your guests hungry if your party is close to meal time.
Finally, you're now ready to choose your party's themes and decorations. Everything else (the place, time, and food) is more important than your party's theme and decorations. This is the fun part. You could choose a set theme and buy the starting kit with matching accessories or mix and match pieces from different birthday party supply sets. It's really up to you. Be sure to have fun with it because starting at age two, your little one will get picky and start telling you what color and theme her parties will be.

Loot Bag Ideas
Tips for packing the goody bags
Packing a loot bag for a one year old birthday party can be really tricky. Most of the kids will be babies and toddlers, so you need to keep in mind that most party favors are choking hazards. For this reason, for a first birthday I never go with standard pre-packaged goody bags. Instead, I buy bags and shop for party favors that would be appropriate for my guests.
My favorite thing to pack in a loot bag for a first birthday party are board books. The Dollar Store carries a huge variety of board books all for $1 each. They are good quality books. I bought almost all of my children's books their first three years at the Dollar Store, and I'm a certified teacher. Not only do kids enjoy board books, but this is one birthday party favor that will make parents happy too.
Bubbles also make a good party favor for little ones. A small har of bubbles with wand can be bought in packs of three for a dollar at the dollar store. Of course you don't want a toddler to play with bubbles alone, but with their parent's help this can be a really neat party favor.
If your guests are over two years old, then you can add a sheet of stickers to the loot bags. All kids seem to love stickers, so this one can be a real crowd pleaser.
For my kids' birthday parties, I pack 2 board books, 1 jar of bubbles, and 2 sheets of stickers into each loot bag. This makes for a toddler safe, yet fun goody bag.
