As hard as it is to believe, “pandemic babies” are already turning ONE in droves! What is time and how is it passing so quickly? Mark the milestone of your favorite almost one-year-old with a beautiful personalized first birthday party! Navigating a gathering during this not-quite-post pandemic era does require some thought, but with the right hospitality measures in place, we hope you can celebrate these historic babies on a scale that everyone feels comfortable with! With the right setting, a theme that makes people smile, and customs details to make the party one-of-a-kind, you’ll be well on your way to hosting an unforgettable first birthday party for the pandemic babies in your life.
Select a Perfect Birthday Party Setting
Depending on where we are in the world, it may still be most prudent to host this first birthday party outside due to Covid. Let’s be honest, though, kid parties are often best in an outdoor setting anyway! More terrain to explore for your younger guests and an extra measure of peace of mind for your older guests— it’s best for everyone. Take some inspiration from Molly at Almost Makes Perfect for her perfectly appointed kid-friendly space she designed for her son Arlo’s birthday. The monochromatic ball pit is genius!
Choose a Great 1st Birthday Theme
Choosing a first birthday party theme is such a fun process! There are so many fun options to choose from. A theme that appeals to all ages of people is a bonus, especially since you only have a couple of years before the birthday boy or girl will choose their own themes. Keep décor appealing to both kids and adults with a theme and colorway that isn’t too babyish. Again, Molly from Almost Makes Perfect’s Mamma Mía themed party is one of the best we’ve seen!
Design On-Point Party Personalization
Give your pandemic baby party the perfect finishing touches with lots of personalization! Custom on-theme cookies, personalized napkins, cute party favor cups and so much more combine to give your party a totally custom feel. Jordan from Haute House Flower designed absolutely perfect vibrant blue custom color cups, coordinating coasters as well as personalized party favor bags for her son’s recent first birthday party.
Offer Custom Wellness Accessories to Party Guests
The pandemic continues to be a major consideration of any party planning, big or small. As long as we are navigating the pandemic, personalized wellness accessories are hospitality essentials. Provide your guests with personalized face masks and custom hand sanitizer to give everyone some extra piece of mind. If we have to be masking, we might as well match the party décor, right?!
