By Diane Wilson

Picking out the 1st birthday invitations for your baby is important. The first birthday is always a huge event, and you want to be able to have the invitation years from the birthday itself in order to look back and cherish the memories. Not only that, but your child will be able to see it later and see the love that you put into their very first birthday invitation.

You can usually get the invitations, any decorations you may need, table cloths, plates, cups, anything else you may need in sets. This may make it sound easy, but many of the places that offer you this option will allow you to customize many aspects of is that you choose.

If you choose to go in the more casual direction, then everything you choose, including invitations, should be about having fun. Make sure that all of the items you choose for the party are as bright and as colorful as possible, which be fun for both your baby and your guests.
