  • First b-days (IMO) are special, but should be casual and simple. Invite family and close friends and have a special b-day cake just for the baby. Really, the biggest moments for the guests at a 1 yr b-day party is seeing the baby get messy with cake and playing with the presents.

    I suggest having a casual lunch/BBQ where the grown ups can eat and pass the baby around and then do presents and cake (one for your guests and a smaller one just for her..many places make cakes specifically for a baby's 1 b-day). Maybe a few decorations and possibly a "well wishes" book. This can be a small journal/binder where people write comments on their hopes/wishes for the baby's future or comments/memories from baby's past year. You can then keep that for her or turn it into scrapbook material. Simple and not too long.

    Congrats and Good Luck!
