How will you celebrate your baby's 1st birthday party?

Artikel ni mama surf kat internet. saje menambahkan pengetahuan sbb mama pon tgh planning utk 1st bday bash for zara. yg writing purple tu planning yg mama dh ade utk majlis zara nnti..=)

Selamat membaca n meng'share' info yek..

Whether you're planning an intimate gathering of friends and family or an all-out bash, your baby's first birthday celebration is bound to be special — at least for you and the other adults and older kids in his life!Yes, a first birthday party is really for parents and their guests. Your baby won't remember this party, and may even be overwhelmed by it. But that doesn't mean you can't all have fun.

::Yup..mama jugak plan bday party ni as utk gathering saudara mara n kwn2. selain tu, as majlis kesyukuran sbb dah setahun tuhan kurniakan zara pd mama n papa, n dh setahun mama diberi peluang bergelar ibu::

1) Who to invite
Your 1-year-old may be fearful of strangers, and strange or new places. Despite liking other babies, she won't understand how to play with them yet. She will enjoy individual attention and likes to make you laugh. These factors often convince parents to opt for an intimate, low-budget family party or small gathering of relatives, close friends, fellow parents, and neighbors.But no matter how many guests you have, keep in mind that your 1-year-old will want a lot of your undiluted attention. This is especially true if she's feeling overstimulated by a large crowd of well-wishers.

::Hmm..salah satu faktor yg merisaukan mama jugak sbb zara selalu takut pd org yg tak dikenali.but zara suka ngan budak2. sbb tu mama seboleh2 nye insist few relatives n zara's bbysitter to come sbb diornag ade anak2 yg mmg dah kenal n selalu bergaul ngan zara. So harapnye zara tak janggal sbb dh ade org yg dikenali kan. nway, my list of guests mmg tak ramai. about 30pax which includes relatives, officemates n few friends::

2)How much to spend
The amount you spend is up to you, and depends on what kind of party you want to have for your child. Keep in mind that food is the main thing that drives costs up, followed by decorations and the cake. Don't feel pressured to spend more than you can afford — small is beautiful at this age!

::Hmm..wlupon party kecik2 jek seems mama dh spent quite lot of money. probably ade yg dh ter'spend' kat tpt yg kurang berpatutan.hehe.nway, generally duit akan keluarla utk foods (we take catering), balloons, poster, goodies bag n photographer (that's u cik linda..hehe)::

3) Choosing a time
Your baby will probably still be taking a morning and afternoon nap when her first birthday rolls around. If so, it's best to plan your party around nap times if possible. And if you're inviting other young guests, check out their nap times with their parents. Once one starts crying, they all might! You may want to keep the party brief — an hour or so is probably long enough at this age.

::The most frightening factor. mama pon risau zara akan meragam wktu party tu nnti. zara's usually take nap on 10am for 30min or 1hr. so hopefully by 10.30am ppl will start coming so at 11am already can start the cake cutting ceremony::

4) Choosing a place
Home is usually the easiest place to host a first birthday party, and it's where your baby will feel most secure. But if your home is too small for the number of guests you want to invite, consider a local community center, a kids' museum, a restaurant (you may want to go with a kids'-themed place or a fast-food restaurant with a play space), a relative's house, or, if the weather is nice, a park or zoo.

::Mama choose to conduct the party at the park. Sbbnye papa, mama n yg pentingnye zara mmg suka suasana kat taman . N rumah mcm sempit sket utk conduct party ni (wlupon jemputn tak ramai). apepon, hope the wheather not too hot on that day, so zara wil happily playing with other kids!::

5) Choosing a theme
Party themes aren't important to your 1-year-old or her baby guests. You might want to aim for a color-coordinated look, or pick matching plates and napkins with a favorite cartoon character, but it's more for the benefit of the keepsake photos than your baby at this stage

::No themes for zara's party. we like colorful!!::

6) Food
Keep food simple.Finger foods work well for both babies and adults, and eating them won't interrupt play or socializing. Some babies may have quite a few teeth and be able to bite into food; others may still be toothless, so cater to both extremes. Tiny sandwiches with cheese spread (you can cut them into shapes), cubes of mild cheese, cut-up fruit, pasta spirals, and mini yogurts are good options. You can also try animal crackers or graham crackers broken into small pieces.Your small guests will probably eat very little, so aim for a variety of tastes, textures, and colors rather than quantity. And avoid serving nuts, hard candies, popcorn, raisins, marshmallows, and other food that may present a choking hazard to little ones.

::Mama nye jemputan mostly are org2 tua n sederhana utk kids still ade simple foods yg diorng leh mkn as fetucini, nuget,mufin n cut fruits. But for zara mama still akan bwakkan bekal bubur tkt die tak puas makan.hehe..::

7) Birthday cake
Don't forget a wonderful birthday cake. Some parents like to have a small separate cake for the birthday baby — this way she can smash into it to her heart's content. (It also works to serve cupcakes to everyone, including your baby.) Homemade treats are special, but supermarkets have a great variety available, or try a bakery. You may need to order the cake or cakes in advance. And don't let your baby get too close to the candle as she'll want to grab it, not blow on it.

::Mama order online from muslim's cake maker. berdebar2 jugak nak tgk rupe kek tu. hopefully comei la mcm tuan punye kek jugak(ceh..harap cantik jek. sedap tak penting ker..hehe)::

8) Games and activities
Loud bangs from party poppers and bursting balloons may frighten your baby, and discarded poppers and balloons are a serious choking hazard until age 3. Why not have some musical fun, such as dancing with your baby, or a nursery rhyme tape on in the background? She'll also enjoy peek-a-boo games and finding toys hidden in a box or under a cloth. And, of course, she'll enjoy helping you open her presents (although the wrapping paper will be far more fun than the gift!).

::No specified activities planned for the party. Party ni diconduct kat park yg ade playground. so utk kids yg dah bosan tgu parents makan/borak, lehla main kt playground tu. utk zara, bagi jek die berjalan2 sendiri/main belon dah ok::

9) Goody bags
Goody bags aren't really necessary at this age, and the usual treats like candy and balloons are dangerous for the babies at your party. If you want to give a going-away present to your little guests, opt for a small, safe soft toy or a board book to chew on.

::Will prepare a small goody bag for the guests. utk kids, banyak sketla yg mama isi dlm tu nanti..=)::

10) Birthday presents
By now your baby will appreciate toys that make noise or light up, or both, so activity centers are a good choice. It's never too early to read, and textured board books are great fun for your tactile baby. A push-along toy to aid walking skills may be a hit, and new bath toys are always welcome. And if you already have loads of toys, your baby won't object if some people buy her clothes!

::Papa already bought new toy for zara. tp mama taktau nak bg ape lagi. mungkin cukupla ngan planning this bday bash for zara kan..hehe::

Ermm..setakat tu jekla info yg mama nak share. Act at first mama just plan nk buat 1st bday for zara as a small private celebration for us three. then mama terpikir pulak tak salah nak kongsi kegembiraan ni ngan org lain yg selama ni sama2 doakan kesejahteraan mama n zara kan. so akhirnye, ter'plan'la this bash. Selain tu, mama rase tujuan party ni jugak adlah utk celebrate our first year of parenthood as well as Zara's tremendous growth from small little baby into an amazing little person..=)

Whateva the purpose of the party, mama hope to see all relatives n friends yg dah dijemput kat sane nanti ok..!!

p/s: Erk..mama rase its better to change all the words 'party' to 'majlis' sebenarnye. sbb kitorng bukan buat party pon..hahahaha.majlis kecik2 jek..=p. for other bloggers fren yg ade di sekitar shah alam ni, mama jemput sekali dtg ke majlis zara tu nnti ye. Invitation n map akan disiarkan di entry akan dtg..=)
