Celebrate at Home
There is nothing wrong with having a quiet gathering at home by having a potluck or a barbecue and of course, lots of cake. Invite loved ones over to relax, eat and just be together. For food, make it simple. Make finger foods and small sandwiches. "Provide 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," babycenter.com suggested. Purchase a separate birthday cake just for the baby, so they can dig in and enjoy. If you are feeling ambitious hire local entertainers, musicians, face painters or balloon artists. Another reason to have a birthday celebration at home is at such a young age, your baby might not be comfortable around a lot of strangers. By keeping it intimate, it will make them feel safe.
