1st Birthday Party


So how did your son's birthday celebration go? I'm starting to deliberate what kind of birthday celebration to organize for my son's 1st birthday in Dec 09.

You may find me too kiasu...but I'm also worried about how he will react to crowd. He cries when he sees unfamiliar faces at times. Hence, I'm quite worried. Hope anyone can share your experience if your baby has such personality too. thanks.

Thanks, Lena.

I couldn't go into the blog but managed to speak to William. He sounds like a nice guy. And his charges are reasonable. I am looking forward to see his cakes on the blogspot.
Hi MummyNana,

Ya, his cakes are lovely..and the taste is good...not like those that juz look nice but doesnt taste nice..anyway, do share with us the pic of the birthday cake when its done!

Hi Rachel,

What is the theme you wouldl like for your girl? What is her fav cartoon? Then you can work around fr there la...the things to consider:
-- venue
-- Catering
-- cake
-- deco like balloons, banner, table cloth, and also colour theme? eg if your girl like barney, instead of getting all barney balloons, you can also get some purple balloons ah..cheaper and also similar theme...hee...
ya, do you intend to give invites and door gifts to other kids? how many pple are you lookg at?
Hi lena,

Hi Rachel,

It shifted to middle road..it's very near NAFA and the bank of china there..but nowadays dun really think they are that cheap after all...coz i worked around there...

The last party i bought my party supplies online from www.kidzpartystore.com and I'm quite happy with the prices and services..

as for the cake, i got it from a friend ah..which i tink mummynana has also contacted him..you might wanna chk w him also?

i am looking at engaging a magician and ballon sculptor to be present at my son's 2nd year birthday party. Also, looking at renting a bouncing castle. any lobang ?
I just celebrated my second son's first birthday party in my condo function room. For my first son, we celebrated in a hotel function room. After 2 birthday parties, here are some tips:

1. Hire a good entertainer. He will make the party extra memorable. More so than any decoration.

2. If not in a hotel/restaurant, hire kids' sized tables and chairs. It's more convenient for the kids and parents. Have more as parents/caregivers would land up sitting there with the children.

3. Provide hand and mouth wipes.

4. Minimum 100 balloons would do wonders and you don't have to fuss with other decoration if you don't have time.

5. Hire a photographer to capture the moments without having to trouble friends/relatives.

6. Have a dramatic cake.

7. Have a shoes off baby/toddler play area with bumper mats or other clean safe surface to cater to the small ones.

8. If it is not in a restaurant/hotel, provide sufficient tables and seating so that it is more convenient to eat. It's hard for parents to run around children with plates of food in hand.

9. For party bags, give a small amount of good quality candy/biscuits plus one good toy plus some novelty. It is better to give fewer good quality items than a bag full of forgettable bad quality items. Party bags must be age appropriate. Don't give infants candies or novelties. I give babies a safe toy and organic biscuits (for toddlers) or jar food for the infants.

my second son just turned 1.

We held his birthday party at Civil Service Club- Bukit Batok.

We engaged the party planner at Ministry of Party, www.partyplanner.com.sg to organise the kids party for us.
They did a wonderful job in entertaining our guests with magic shows, face painting and balloon sculpturing.

Also, we booked Ministry of party for their balloon packages too and we got some Disney Cars theme party supplies from them too!
