Fun first birthday party entertainment
Planning a first birthday party can be challenging, especially if this is your first child and your first time planning a kids birthday party altogether. Here at Happy Bright Kids we have over 15 years of experience in first birthday party entertainment and would like to offer some tips to help make your child’s first birthday party easy and successful!
– It is best to plan a first birthday party with your guests in mind. If this is going to be a small get-together with a few other babies and toddlers, prepare an enclosed play area with age-appropriate toys and set up chairs around for other parents to sit, watch and chat. If you are inviting a larger number of guests who will be bringing kids of all ages, then you may want to set up some party games and/or a jumper, as well as hire a birthday party entertainer (specifically one who can do first birthday party entertainment, more on that below). The amount of food served and cake size should also be chosen based on the number of guests you’re expecting.
– You will want to schedule a first birthday party around your child’s nap times to ensure they don’t need to sleep during the party and can enjoy the full celebration. Unless you’re inviting a lot of guests, a first birthday party should also be kept short at around 1 – 2 hours.
– Simple party staples like party hats, balloons, hanging paper/plastic decorations, banners and fun invitation cards go a long way in creating a festive atmosphere for a first birthday party.
– Hire the right birthday party entertainer, a good amount of entertainers can serve parties for older kids but will struggle with (or not offer) first birthday party entertainment due to lack of appropriate material and experience with this age group. Happy Bright Kids has been performing first birthday party entertainment since the company was founded, and will adapt our performance to a level that all guests (from youngest to oldest) will have a great time and a memorable party experience.
