How to spend the first birthday of my son, I began to think a couple of months before his onset. I really wanted it to be unforgettable. Of course, I understood that the one-year-old child is too small and is unlikely to remember this day. But it was her duty to bestow upon him a mass of positive emotions.
Preparation for the holiday
I started the training by viewing ideas on the Internet and photo reports from similar holidays of my acquaintances. There were many different recommendations, but most of them were focused on holding competitions with guests. Something like guessing the main dates and numbers from the life of a kid.
I didn’t like this idea very much. All of course looked great, fun. But the thought flashed through my head: What about the child? Would he be interested in it? Do not think that I am a bad hostess, and I do not care about the comfort of my guests. Certainly worried. But I wanted to impress the child, because it is his holiday. And he loves when they play with him, communicate. Therefore, it was necessary to close the whole process of celebration on the son.
Focusing on the hobbies of my baby, I decided that it would be nice to organize a holiday in two stages. The first stage was to consist of the celebration of the house with the guests, and at the second stage a walk in the park was planned. We are nowhere without a walk!
To decorate the apartment it took to buy three dozen balloons filled with helium. We tied colorful ribbons to some of them to make the balls look more spectacular. The rest were released with the ribbons that were at the time of purchase. About 50 regular balloons we just scattered around the apartment. Congratulations were hung on the wall, bedside tables and wardrobes were decorated with baby photos.
Since we have a son, we laid a table with a tablecloth with images of cars. Napkins, glasses, plates and guest caps with identical symbols were also attached to the tablecloth. After that, the atmosphere of childhood reigned in our house.
Another car on our holiday was the cake. I myself do not know how to create such masterpieces, so it was decided to order a cake. By choosing the ingredients for its manufacture, we approached responsibly, so that the baby could also enjoy them. Sweet car was made only from natural products.
Waiting for a miracle
When all the preparations were completed, my husband and I happily greeted the guests and our little birthday boy, who was left with relatives during the preparation. The appearance of the changed apartment caused indescribable delight in his son. He jerked the balls and cried happily.
As guests were invited only the closest people whom the baby knew well. Feast passed without contests. The guests just enjoyed the fun of the little naughty girl who walked along their hands. All attention was paid to the baby, and he gave smiles and kisses in response.
It was decided to give gifts in turn with short breaks. So we achieved a lot of happy moments for the baby. Each time he gladly accepted the toy, played with it for a certain time, and then looked at us again, waiting for a new miracle.
My child was happy, his eyes glowed. And I understood that I did everything right. The guests were also satisfied, because Yegor gave the attention and warmth of everyone present. There was no talk of boredom.
After the guests left, and our baby slept, the second part of the holiday began. With the whole family (and we have a small one: dad, me and a child) we went to the park, taking with us some of the balls. The walk was very fun. We wandered through the park, watched squirrels, birds, let balloons fly into the sky.
At the end of the day the baby was tired, but very happy. The day was very busy for him. And in memory of the first holiday left many toys and bright photos.
So, our holiday was a success. And I made a small conclusion for myself: the holiday of the kid should be his holiday. The main thing to take into account his preferences, and all must pass with a bang!
