Make your baby’s first birthday exceptional
By the first baby’s birthday, buy a clean video cassette and shoot this great
event on it. Then keep it till the next year, so that to record there a second
birthday too. And so on. Just imagine a teenager’s joy and affection when you’ll
present him a cassette with his all birthdays for his full age!
2 You can also arrange the following surprise for your baby’s first birthday. Take
a photo of every guest during the event and hand out small colored pieces of paper
to everyone. They should write their wishes for a baby there. Make an album and
glue in photos and wishes of all guests there (you can also add there cards, menu,
if the holiday took place in a café etc.) This album of “The first Birthday” will
become a family relic.
Here’s another way of congratulation of a hero of the occasion – “A Letter to
The Future”. Prepare beautiful colored envelopes and note-paper beforehand, hand
them out to all guests and ask them to write “A Letter to The Future” for a grown
up…. 18 y.o. hero of the occasion! Put all letters into a beautiful box, close
it before everybody’s eyes and announce: “I’ll give this box to our dear child
in 17 years. In the day of his full age”. My friends carried out such action on
their baby’s birthday and it created an incredible furore.

food, cleaning and preparation of your house for the invasion of “little destroyers’
troop”. However, you’ll have to worry about a lot of other things beforehand all
the same. For example, you need to reserve day and time (in a café, children’s
center or where else you’re going to have fun); go there and see the placement,
whether it’s enough for all your guests and if it’s comfortable for little children;
order snacks (you need little food, but more fruits, juices and mineral water).
Take several fruit-cakes for every child and put a small candle into each cake.
Each child will blow out a candle on his plate, without preventing a hero of the
occasion from blowing out the main candle on his birthday cake.
Think twice before you invite a clown. His costume and make-up can frighten little
child, if it causes a scandal, this will be an awkward situation both for children
If you arrange a holiday in a children’s center, observe that each child takes
part in games and amusements! It’s even better for you to agree with the main
presenter, that he should have a talk with each (!) child although for several
