There a number of FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS for your little dolls, but this ABC FIRST BIRTHDAY THEME is as a cute as a button!
1st birthday party ideas and TIPS:
-Child proof your home before anything else.
-Keep the party short, maybe an hour to an hour and a quarter. It could be a lunch hour party for parents or a tea party in the later afternoon.
-Don't invite more then four or five babies about the same age, or anywhere between one to one and a half. The babies parents should be with them at all times, and basicallly it is a party for the parents to start with. Babies this age will not remember the party anyway.
First start with the invitation. Invitations for 1 yr olds should have an ABC motif.
An example and some wording could be:
(A)Little (he or she) is Absolutely sweet and small
(B)(he or she) is beautiful beyond belief
(c) (he or she) is as cute as a button
Come and join our ABC birthday party
in honor of (he or she)first birtdhay.
On (date) at(time) at (location of party)
Attach the invitation to an ABC block or other ABC item.
