Birthday Traditions

Have a Seperate Birthday Cake for Your Baby

Cake! It is generally tradition for babies to smash their first birthday cake. We recommend you bake (or purchase) one separate for your baby and have a bigger cake for the rest of your guests. Some parents start new traditions for their children on their first birthday. It is a nice tradition to start documenting details about your child on a yearly basis. Some ideas are to record height, take footprints or handprints using paint or casting kits, or snap a photo each birthday for a photo album.

Party Budget

This is a big question for new parents and the answer is ultimately up to them. A Babycenter.com poll asked 5,000+ parents the amount they spent on their baby’s first birthday party. The results showed that “a majority — 61 percent — of parents spent $200 or less, 25 percent spent between $200 and $500, and 11 percent dished out more than $500.” The number of attendees, location, food and decorations all contribute to the cost. Before purchasing items for the party, it is smart determine a budget, like you would for any event.
