For a first birthday party decoration, remember that you're really decorating and having the party for everyone but the birthday child, who will have no memory of it. Of course, they will enjoy looking at pictures of the celebration when they get older. Decorations can be as simple as large number 1's cut from brightly colored paper. You can even use smaller number 1's for invitations, writing the date, time, and address on the number. Keep the party short and have it in a location familiar to the child so they will be comfortable and at their ease. Try to time it around naptimes. For most children, that means a morning party works better than an afternoon one.
