How to decorate my baby's birthday table?

When our son or daughter is already a certain age and has certain tastes, it can be much easier for us to decorate everything, the table and the entire party. Do you like Marvel, do you like Disney, are you a fan of anime? Then one looks for objects and decorations and that's it. But what happens when he is still a baby? And if she turns nothing more and nothing less than a year?

Maybe some balloons and a hanging sign are good solutions, but then our concentration is focused on the birthday table, which is where we are going to take almost all the most important photos of the event. Around her we will find ourselves singing "Happy Birthday", blowing out the candles, cutting the cake and posing with other relatives. So, yes, the table cannot be left out of the decoration. here are some ideas how to decorate the birthday table.

It does not matter if for this first birthday you plan a big party or a more intimate celebration, between family and friends, there are really adorable ways to decorate the birthday table.

A fun birthday doesn't have to go hand in hand with hype, you can keep it all simple, colorful and fun at the same time. The baby isn't necessarily going to pick up on the grand decorations (balloons everywhere, bright signs), so we can balance the decorations.

  • Primary colors: red, yellow and blue are primary colors. You can use them for birthday decorations and it will be a simple and direct way to brighten up the house and the table in particular. A classic, disposable plastic tablecloth is even a good idea, in a primary color with balloons of the other primary colors tied to the legs or chairs. You can also use paper of these colors with the baby's name written on them, one letter on each piece of paper, for example by hanging them over a door or on the table itself. And you can combine all this with glasses, plates and napkins.
  • Season colors: Another very simple birthday decoration style is to dress the house and the table with seasonal colors, always considering the time of year in which the birth occurred. You can decorate the room or the table in primary colors: red, yellow or orange if it is autumn, more neon colors if it is spring and summer, blue if it is more winter.
  • Animals: Ducks are always nice and you can decorate your baby's birthday table with ducks: the yellow tablecloth, the plates, napkins and glasses that are bought online, dolls that make noises. And if you have a little more money you can buy several rubber ducks and add them to the decoration. And they can even be a guest souvenir. You can do the same with dinosaurs.
  • Balloons: balloons are a very welcome classic. Cheap and fun. If you don't have pets then they are much better. You can shape an arch to hang over the table, you can decorate the entire table with balloons or make a small pool full of balloons where your child or the other children can play for a while. Balloons from everywhere!
  • handmade decorations: We said at the beginning that today everything is available online and in stores, but we can also make the decorations ourselves or with guests. If there are many children, sometimes our friends have children and there are children everywhere, we can put out blank paper and markers, pencils and crayons for them to have fun. Among these handcrafted decorations you can add musical instruments: maracas, drums...
  • Place a green tablecloth To simulate the grass, disposable cups will also be distributed in green on it, on which colored flowers will be attached (some cups already have the printed design). The napkins should be colorful and colored flowers can be added to the plates.
  • Over a yellow tablecloth, place white plates and glasses with star and sea snail motifs, you can leave a blue strip on the tablecloth, on which to apply drawings of ships and boats, simulating the coast. For this reason, the glasses can carry umbrella-shaped straws.
  • Over a white tablecloth, draw ants, butterflies or other funny insects and delineate the path they have made to get there with a black dotted line. This work can be done only on the sides or on the entire tablecloth. If you choose ants, the glasses are very nice in red with little black dots (or good-sized spots in black).

Of course, these table decorations must coincide with that of the room in general, otherwise it will be in very bad taste, poorly assembled. For this reason it is suggested choose a particular topic and from there make the display of ideas.

Finally, if you are not a kindergarten teacher don't worry, you can keep a rather classic color scheme, blue or pink, or choose rainbow and add more colors, use only huge balloons and if they float better, if you can The shape of animals also adds up and if they already have something favorite (a book, a toy, space motifs like stars and planets), you can always add it to the decoration so that feel the birthday table a place not alien but closer.

And not for the child, but for the guests, we can record our own first year as parents. How? In a corner we can hang or paste some photos of that short but intense journey that are the first months of a human being: birth, their first kilos, how they took the breast or the bottle, some photo sleeping, another crying... that kind of stuff.
