How to Select the Perfect 1st Birthday Card for Your Child

A child's first birthday is a momentous occasion, one that you won't forget. The first birthday party favors and 1st birthday card are often kept as keepsakes or put into a scrapbook. When it comes to choosing a theme and card, there are tons of choices. So, how do you pick the perfect 1st birthday card and party theme?

The best 1st birthday party theme is one that the baby will enjoy. Despite the fact that this new addition to your family is an important milestone in your life, the party and card are for the boy or girl, so it's important to choose a theme they will like. Think about their favorite toys, books, or cartoons to possibly get some good ideas.

If you are still having trouble thinking of ideas, try to remember what you enjoyed as a kid. For boys, a truck, plane, or dinosaur themed 1st birthday card would be a good idea. For girls, princesses, ballerinas, or butterflies might be a better fit. If in doubt, go with animal themed favors and first birthday card. Monkeys, elephants, giraffes, and fish can be cute for either gender.

There are so many cards to choose from, but don't worry! Whichever card you choose will be great. When planning for the party, don't forget to send out 1st birthday invitation to guests. They usually have a picture of the baby, and can go along with your theme, or just emphasize the 'Big One' or '1st Birthday' that you all will be celebrating.
