How To Plan Your Baby’s Full Month Party
Throwing a full month party for your new baby is a celebration for the new mother too!
In Asia, families usually celebrate the baby’s full month or full moon (满月) when the baby is about to, or, is turning one month old. It is loosely referred to as the ‘baby shower’.
But it is different from that of our Western counterpart’s party which is an event thrown during the third trimester before the baby is born to celebrate the mother’s soon-to-be new life.

New parents are excited to share the birth of their child, but how can they pull off a baby full month celebration party without going into a frenzy while struggling with a new baby?
If you’re planning to organise a full month party, then rest easy — we’ve done the legwork to make things easier for clueless parents. To help you along the way in all your preparations for your baby full month celebration party, here’s all you need to know!
7 Steps For Planning Your Baby Full Month Celebration
Here are 7 steps to guide you through your baby full month celebration planning just like a pro:
#1: Set a date and time for the full month party
Most families usually pick a weekend to accommodate schedules. The ideal date would be on the actual day—or before—as traditional Asian families don’t believe in celebrating after the actual date.
When to start: 2 to 3 weeks before the date of party, pin down dates you’d like to hold the event. That would help you let your guests to block their calendar too.
#2: Decide on who to invite to the full month party
Take time to plan your guest list. Consider how big or small a baby full month celebration you are hoping to have and will be able to manage. Don’t forget, planning for a party requires logistical arrangements and coordination with various people involved. The larger the scale, the more complex things become.
Tip: Get your husband to list down the people he’d like to invite, you do the same too, then combine the lists. If the group gets too large to handle, consider scaling down. Remember, the more guests you have, the bigger the venue will need to be and that might affect your budget if you are cost-conscious.
When to start: 2 to 3 weeks before the date of party; done concurrently when deciding the date and time.
Baby full month party is a time when your family will come together to celebrate the new arrival.
#3: Look for an accessible venue and plan your budget
Once you have an estimated number of guests, start looking at venue options.
Will it be a simple baby full month celebration at your own home or at your in-law’s condominium function room? Or will you be going all out to throw a classy party at the hotel—fit for your little princess?
Shortlist a few locations, so you have options in case the top choice is taken or way out of budget. Some favourite party places require a minimum number of guests in order to book the venue and may include various packages, so you might need to check and confirm with your guests on their availability prior to booking.
Indoor venues are usually favoured due to the unexpected weather conditions. Plus, you wouldn’t want to deal with a sticky, cranky, little baby on this special day.
At the same time, start costing out how much you will need to set aside. Don’t forget the nitty gritty details such as party decor, party favours, and cakes too!
Here are some party venues which offer Full Month/Full Moon party packages for your newborn’s first party: Polliwogs (prices start from $688), Giggles (prices start from $688), Singapore Polytechnic Graduates’ Guild (prices start from $48/pax)
When to start: 2 to 3 weeks before the date of party, especially for popular locations such as a cafe. They are booked on a first-come-first-served basis, so ideally, site reservations should be done early too.
#4: Send out invites to guests
There are several ways to send out invitations these days: through text messages, Facebook event invites, email invitations, etc. Find a method which works best for you and your guests. Remember to leave your contact numbers so that guests can call if they have any questions and to RSVP to confirm their attendance for your baby’s full month celebration.
Traditional full month food to prepare: Red eggs, ang ku kueh, and glutinous rice.
Some traditional families send red eggs (you can DIY them easily!) and cakes personally to the seniors in the family out of respect. These folks may or may not be invited or might not be attending the actual full month celebration, but this gesture is passed down from generations to announce the birth of a new family member.
When to start: After the date, time, and venue have been set, send out the invites to your guests to tell them about the party!
#5: Decide on a theme and plan the menu
How you wish to beautify the space will depend on your concept. Decor can be entirely minimal with just standard balloons. Or you may go all out and splurge on a printed backdrop, with a customised dessert table and made-to-order themed birthday cake, coupled with activities and games!
Some venues such a cafe, restaurant, or hotel function room, come catered with food options, which makes things easier for the busy new parents when it comes to deciding the food.
If the full month party is going to be held at a condominium function room, someone’s house, or at the common pavilion at your estate, be sure to cater enough food for all your guests.
Here are some popular caterers which offer Full Month/Full Moon buffet menu packages for your newborn’s first party: ecreative (prices from $11.66/pax), Chili Padi Peranakan Restaurant and Catering (prices from $14.77/pax), Neo Garden Catering (enjoy up to 50% discount), Select Catering Services (prices from $13.91/pax), Four Seasons (prices from $13.71/pax), Rasel Catering (prices from $17.12/pax, certified Halal), Orange Clove (10% discount for Baby Full Month package, certified Halal).
When to start: 1 to 2 weeks before the party, as some guests might not respond promptly to the RSVP deadline. Some caterers or F&B places allow an estimated heads-up on the expected guests but will need the final figure a week before. Be sure to get your numbers right, because if the guests don’t turn up, you will most likely be charged for that agreed number any way.
For party decor, you may hunt for them as soon as you have decided on the party theme. Online purchases may take several days to reach, and you may wish to factor waiting time for any unexpected delays. Getting the party frills from retail stores is more straightforward, unless, of course, you prefer to shop around, and that would take some time too.
Enjoy the sweet moments of your baby’s full month party with the lovely company of families and friends that matter to you.
#6: Plan the full month party agenda
Now, the fun is getting started!
New parents may be too caught up with their newborn and might prefer an easier full month party with just food, catching up with guests, cake-cutting, and, perhaps, a goodie bag for the kids.
A simple 4-hr party agenda can look like this:
12pm: Guests arrive; lunch and mingle
2.30pm: Cake-cutting and photo taking
3-4pm: More mingling and party ends; goodie bags for kids to take home
Some excited mums and dads may actually go all out with the full works: with clowns, storytellers, magicians, or a bouncy castle for their kiddie guests.
Others may tone down by preparing a simple activity booklet to keep kids entertained while the adults mingle and coo over the star of the party.
When to start: If external vendors will be engaged, it might be good to book them at least 2 weeks prior. Regardless of the complexity of agenda, it’s good to start preparing early especially if you foresee plenty of DIY needed – well, that is if you actually have time for that!
#7: Have fun and enjoy this special day!
All the planning is half the glory of an awesome event.
But take heart if some things don’t turn out the way you had planned. The purpose of a full month party is to celebrate the birth of your child and share the joy of becoming new parents.
This date most likely marks the end of your confinement too, so rejoice and bid farewell to those Sesame Oil Meat and Pork Trotters in Vinegar!
Now that the preparation work is over and your family is all ready to enjoy the party, have you forgotten about your newborn?
She may not know that she is the star of the party, but that doesn’t mean that she can’t have a good time too!
Preparing Your Newborn Baby For Their Full Month Celebration
Your little bundle of joy is much too young to know that he’s the star of the party, but that doesn’t mean your baby should not have a good time too. Afterall, snapshots of that day will be lingering on the internet, your computer, and printed ones in albums!
Go about the day like any other day. Your newborn will most likely still be in a sleepy state at this point and spend his special day, well, dozing. But that’s perfectly normal.
In the busyness of entertaining guests, remember to check on him every other moment. Just in case he might be cold, hot, hungry, or needing a cuddle. If the husband or yourself will be caught up chatting away with friends, remember to designate a trusted person who is able to prepare baby’s milk and feed promptly.
Most importantly, ensure your little one is taken care of during the event. This might be one of the first few times that your new baby is seeing so many new faces, with excited uncles and aunties pawing over him or wanting to steal a cuddle. Should your baby start showing signs of distress or is overstimulated, WebMD recommends some ways to calm your little one.
Host Etiquette During The Baby Full Month Celebration
Now that your baby full month celebration party is happening, have you thought about how you and your partner will be hosting your guests on that day?
- Don’t arrive later than your guests (or at least try not to!)
- Ensure there’s enough food to go round – better to be over-prepared than under!
- Don’t stay glued to your mobile, and other digital devices
- If the party is at home, ensure the bathroom is well-stocked with necessities such as toilet paper and hand soap
- Be gracious and remain calm if spills happen – accidents are, well, accidents!
- Remember to mingle and chat with each guest – they’ve taken time off to celebrate your newborn, it’s rude to have them feel like they have been invited to be seat fillers
- If your partner has invited his/her own group of friends, do thank them for their presence of sharing your joy even if you’ve not met them before.
Don’t forget to thank all your guests at the end of the party. After all, they have made special arrangements and effort to share your joy, so don’t forget your P’s and Q’s too!
Here’s what you need to remember for your baby full month celebration
We see a wave of new-age parents with an entirely different outlook.
Most young parents now tend to be less rigid when it comes to adhering to tradition. It doesn’t have to elaborate or need to have all the checkboxes ticked. But if you want to incorporate the traditional elements, why not?
In the end, it all boils down to the genuine thought put behind it and the coming together of your loved ones.
Remember, there are some cons that you might like to consider on whether to stick to a full month celebration
- Will your older relatives find it difficult to relate that there will not be a full month party? They could hold deep-rooted beliefs to the tradition. Will they be receptive to a 100 days baby celebration?
- A 100 days party is a seemingly “bigger” affair, it might be more of a headache thinking of what gift to give.
If you’re already excited and thinking of organising your very own 100 days baby celebration, here are some interesting themes we’ve come up with to give you some inspiration!

Full Month Parties for Babies Versus 100th Day Celebration: The Pros and Cons
Red Egg and Ginger Party
A Red Egg and Ginger Party is the traditional Chinese celebration of a baby’s one month birthday. The custom dates to ancient times when infant mortality rates were high and new babies were named and celebrated only after a month had passed and survival seemed assured. Thankfully, times are less perilous today and the tradition persists as a way for proud parents to introduce their new baby to family and friends.
Red Egg and Ginger Parties traditionally occur soon after a baby’s one month birthday. These days, families are more relaxed about when the party is actually held. It’s increasingly common for a Red Egg and Ginger Party to take place at the 100 day mark. In either case, the spirit and intent remain the same: to welcome a new child among family and friends.
Check your invitation. Red Egg and Ginger Parties are typically held at a local Chinese restaurant, a community center assembly room or at home. Restaurant parties will likely include a multi-course banquet meal, while parties at a community center or at home will likely be more casual affairs with a buffet meal or desserts and coffee.
What to Wear
No shorts, no jeans, no ties, no dresses. Red Egg and Ginger Parties are celebrations, so wear festive attire. Members of the baby’s family may dress up in suits, but guests typically arrive in casual semi-formal weekend wear. Red is considered the luckiest of all colors, so it’s always appropriate. The only colors to avoid are black and white, which are typically reserved for funerals and mourning.
Red Eggs and Ginger
Guests are presented with red eggs, which symbolize luck and unity, and pickled ginger, which brings the body back into balance after childbirth. Plates of red eggs, an even number for a son and an odd number for a daughter, and ginger may be presented at each table or at the buffet line.
If the party is held at a restaurant, expect to eat a traditional Chinese banquet meal including an appetizer of cold meats, soup, dishes with seafood, vegetables and tofu, lettuce wraps, noodles, fried rice and a dessert. At a more casual party, you may be served any of these dishes in a buffet line or food inspired by Red Egg and Ginger Party customs like cupcakes with red frosting, raspberry-ginger lemonade or egg-shaped sugar cookies.
The most traditional gift is a red envelope filled with lucky money, which you give to the baby as it is introduced around the party. Most guests will give a red envelope and a physical gift, such as the ones listed in our Gift Ideas section, which is left at the gift table at the party entrance. Read my article for advice about how much lucky money to put in your red envelope and how to allocate a total dollar amount between a red envelope and a physical gift.
Red Egg and Ginger Parties are joyous events steeped in traditions intended to convey a life filled with good luck and prosperity on the new baby. Here are the different customs you may observe, depending on how traditional the host family is that day.
Introducing the Baby: The baby is the guest of honor at a Red Egg and Ginger Party. Whether sleeping or awake, the proud parents will introduce the baby around the room to friends and family. Well wishers may tuck or pin red envelopes filled with lucky money in the baby’s clothing.
Reintroducing Mom: Despite the pressures of contemporary parental leave policies, many new Chinese mothers still observe the old tradition of “the sitting month.” This month-long period of intense indoor confinement spent resting, drinking warm medicinal soups and avoiding harmful outdoor germs is intended to help new mothers restore balance to their bodies and regain their strength following childbirth.
A Celebration of Firsts: The Red Egg and Ginger Party may commemorate a series of “firsts” traditionally performed at home in the past. These may include the baby’s first bath, the first haircut, the first new set of clothes and, most importantly, a new Chinese name. At one month of age, these ceremonies are performed to officially welcome the child into the family.
Announcing the Baby’s Name: The Chinese believe that a baby’s name influences his or her destiny and role in life. Traditionally, families would consult fortune tellers and a wise elder, such as the baby’s grandfather, would be responsible for choosing an auspicious name. Today, it’s common for families to share the baby’s Western name at birth, but still wait to announce the child’s Chinese name at the Red Egg and Ginger Party.
Cutting the Baby’s Hair: It’s an ancient tradition to shave a baby’s head to commemorate the child’s independent existence, as well as to stimulate new hair growth. Today, a grandparent may simply clip a lock of the baby’s hair to store as a keepsake.
A New Set of Red Clothes: As red is the most auspicious color in Chinese culture, the baby is most likely to be dressed in a bright red play suit or dress to symbolize a lifetime of good fortune and prosperity.
Jingling Gold Jewelry: The baby may be adorned with a gold necklace or bracelet with charms or a locket, to symbolize longevity and good luck, while warning evil spirits away.
Toasts: At some point, the meal or party will be interrupted by the family for toasts thanking guests for coming and joining in their joyous celebration.

Full Moon: Celebrating One of Baby’s First Milestones
Have you ever wondered why a person’s ‘Chinese age’ seems to be their real age plus one year? That’s because the Chinese have traditionally regarded the completion of the full 30 days as baby’s first birthday. So by the time the child reaches a year old, he or she would be two!
The rationale behind this is quite simple. Infant mortality rates were higher in the past, so when a newborn reached ‘满月’ (pronounced “man yue” and literally translated as ‘full moon’) in good health, this was a milestone worth celebrating. Widespread superstition also meant that families would be reluctant to announce their baby’s birth until he or she made it to the full month, in fear of jinxing the wee one.
As a result, the full moon celebration was a joyous occasion to officially ‘show off’ mother and baby to the world at large, and mark the beginning of the child’s life in the community. Symbolic rituals would also be carried out to ensure that the child would enjoy good health, happiness, and success in life. Some of these traditions have been passed down through the years and continue to be observed today.
Full Moon Traditions
Grooming for mum: The celebration of baby’s full moon also marks the end of the new mother’s confinement. This means she is finally allowed to take her first bath in water with pomelo leaves and have her hair washed. While few modern mothers today still observe the avoidance of water during confinement on account of hygiene, the morning bath on that day still carries much meaning.
The first haircut: One of the cutest traditions has to be giving baby her first haircut. Oftentimes, parents engage the services of a professional dedicated to this practice to come to the house in the morning to cut or shave baby’s hair. Afterward, this first crop of hair can be made into a Chinese calligraphy paint brush (called a ‘tai mao bi’) for a lifelong and very meaningful keepsake.
Baby’s first bath: After the haircut, the baby is given a bath in water with a stalk of pomelo leaves, some hard-boiled eggs, coins and flowers in it. This ritual is believed to wash away bad luck in a bid to ward off evil. The baby may have her nails trimmed.
Hard-boiled eggs: Hard-boiled eggs signify a new birth and renewal, coins bode well for riches and flowers denote the blossoming of a sweet and beautiful life ahead.
New clothes: Both mother and baby would then be dressed in new clothes, preferably in red, and be adorned in gold jewelry. Now they’re ready to meet the world!
Full Moon Rituals
In Buddhist or Taoist families incense is burnt and food offerings are made to ancestors on the morning of the full moon. This is to inform them of their new family member and to ask for blessings. Offerings are also presented to deities worshipped at home to appeal to them to protect the child.
Since the full moon celebration is the family’s chance to officially present the child to friends and relatives for the first time, many families choose to hold a party so that everyone has a chance to meet the new addition. This may be in the form of an informal luncheon at home, a party in a condominium function room or HDB void deck, or a more extravagant dinner at a hotel or restaurant.
This is also when the baby’s name is formally announced. For some parents, it is extremely important to choose an auspicious Chinese name. They believe that the customary name will determine their child’s character and destiny. Parents who have yet to select a Chinese name may ask the baby’s grandparents (the job traditionally falls upon the paternal grandfather) to do the honours.

Full Moon Blessings All Around
Relatives and friends are presented with a set of symbolic gifts (often varying according to the family’s dialect group). The basic must-haves include:
• Hard-boiled eggs symbolising fertility and the renewal of life that have been dyed red for good luck (in an even number to signify a baby boy and an odd number to denote a baby girl)
• Steamed glutinous rice dish (the taste and ingredients depending on dialect group)
• Pickled ginger because the Cantonese word for ‘sour’ sounds like the word for ‘grandson’, and it comes with the hope of many more to come
• Meat dish such as roast pork, chicken or braised pig’s trotters
• Traditional cakes or ‘kueh’ like ‘ang ku kueh’ (the ‘red turtle cake’ signifies longevity and previously its design indicated the sex of the child; the modern version typically uses a pointed shaped to represent a boy and a flat shape for a girl)
In recent years, some of the customs have been updated to reflect the culture. Today’s Singaporean parents may give out full moon party packs or gift boxes containing a selection of chocolates, cream puffs, cupcakes or even soft toys instead.
In return, friends and family give full moon presents to the child, gifts that traditionally carry auspicious significance. The older generation may present gold bangles, gold chains, or anklets, while the younger folk tend to choose more contemporary items like charm anklets or silver accessories, which may range from baby combs to spoons or even piggy banks.
The more practical-minded may choose to give hampers full of diapers and other baby care products, or useful items like an infant car seat. Of course, the ubiquitous hongbao – red packets containing money – works just as well in wishing baby a life of happiness and prosperity ahead.

First Month Celebration
According to Chinese custom, when a baby
Traditionally, oil rice served with chicken legs and red eggs means the newborn is a boy, and the cakes means the baby is a girl. But for nowadays, cakes and oil rice are usually given together no matter boys and girls.

First Birthday Celebration
To the parents and the baby, baby’s first birthday is a special milestone. Here in Taiwan, we have a traditional Chinese birthday celebration.
Zhua-Zhou is an activity held on a baby’s first birthday. This custom can be traced back to the Song dynasty (960-1279), and the quantity of objects must be the multiples of six, because there is a Chinese proverb called “Double six breaks the jinx.” Parents prepare 12 symbolic items to predict the baby’s future career and personality traits. The item the baby picks up first is supposed to determine his future career.
Before the ceremony, the family and the baby will pray to ancestors for good health and happiness. Then, the parents put the baby on the ground in front of a big basket tray with 12 items. On the tray, there could be a book, money, an abacus, a stethoscope, a measuring tape, a sword, a calligraphy pen, a name seal, celery, green onion, etc. The baby will crawl toward the item which attracts him/her most.
In ancient times, people regarded this tradition as a prediction of the baby’s future. Nowadays, people just do it for fun to celebrate baby’s first birthday. Parents would choose more modern items for their babies.

Coming-of –Age Celebration for 16-Year-Olds
Turning 16 years old is important and
In the past, there were many child labors, who could only get the half salary. But when they were 16 years old, they could get the whole salary as an adult.
Qiniangma (the seventh goddess) is a guardian goddess of children, protecting children until they become 16. In order to thank for Qiniangma’s blessing, In Tainan, there is a big ritual celebration for all 16-year-olds on July 7th of Chinese lunar calendar, the birthday of Qiniangma. It’s an traditional and unique “coming-of-age celebration” in Tainan City.
The process of the coming-of-age celebration:
The family prepare many kinds of offerings such as fruit, meat, paper clothes, cosmetics, Qiniangma Pavilion and worship Qiniangma. Then the 16- year-olds go under Qiniangma Pavilion, the boys have to turn around from the left three times, and girls turn around from the right. After that they burn Qiniangma Pavilion .
Tainan government also held some activities for the 16-year-old teenagers. For example , the 16-year-old teenagers can sign up for the kayak experience. They have to paddle along Tainan canal for 10 km, and go under 12 different bridges (like they go under Qiniangma Pavilion which is made by paper and bamboo with beautiful decorations). to challenge themselves. It’s an interesting and special coming of age activity.
In Vietnamese’s perspective, it is not
According to the Vietnamese customs, there is also a one month celebration for the newborn baby. It is quiet the same as it is in Taiwan. Friends and family gather at the house of the baby and bring presents for the baby.
As to gifts to the family and relatives, instead of red eggs and cakes, they have local food for the guests. The most interesting thing is that during the ceremony, a flower which is wet with special water from the altar is held over the baby and the water drips into the baby’s mouth. This is to insure that the child will learn to speak in sweet scented words.
The baby has another celebration after one year. The “One-year-old Birthday” is similar to the “One Month Celebration.” Once again, family and relatives gather for a party. Vietnamese also have “Picking the future career” activity for the baby.
When a child is at the age of twelve, the family will hold a big celebration for the child. A pig sacrifice and delicious food are served at the party.

How to celebrate the birthday of a one-year-old child: ideas, tips, useful information it’s time to have a dinner party.Yesterday, all thoughts were about the brand of diapers, but today we need to decide how to celebrate the birthday of the child – 1 year old. Dad is already calculating the budget for the upcoming event, mom is thinking about the program for the holiday, but the almost one-year-old toddler does not give away a secret about what he wants to receive as a present.
The article contains useful information, tips and ideas on how to make the birthday of a one-year-old child interesting, funny and memorable.
How to organize the birthday of a 1 year old child?
Parents want to celebrate their first birthday in a special way.To organize a great fun holiday, you need to prepare for a long time and do not miss anything:
- Determine the venue: home, cafe, nature. Be sure to consider your child’s needs. If it’s summer outside, then you can safely organize a holiday in nature. The child will walk in the fresh air with the rest of the children. And after the holiday, tired and full of emotions, go to a sound sleep
- Determine the time approximately. With a small child, this is a rather difficult task, because the schedule of a child under 1 year old changes very often
- Define a guest list.You should not invite to the holiday people whom the child does not know at all. Children react differently to strangers. Let only the people closest to the child be on the guest list. It will be very good if you invite children
- Determine for yourself how you see the upcoming holiday: a fun holiday exclusively for children, or you want to amuse adults as well; everything will be thought out for the little things at the holiday, or decide to get by with a beautiful cake and balls; whether there will be a theme of the holiday.
By answering these questions, you will know, you will be able to draw up a clear preparation plan:
- Choose an outfit for the birthday person
- Make or order invitations (optional)
- Make or order a book of wishes (optional, but will remain for memory)
- Think about accessories for the holiday
- Decide how you will decorate the room
- Choose suitable contests
- Consider how the festive table will look like
- Order a beautiful cake in advance
- Print photos of the best first year of life
Since the young mother has little free time, it is better to start all the preparations 2 months before the event in order to gradually carry out each stage of the preparation
Whom to call for the first birthday?
There are two options for choosing guests: the first is close relatives and friends, and the second is mothers with the same yearlings.It would be quite reasonable if you decide to celebrate the child’s birthday at home, in a small family circle, with those people who sincerely love the baby and took part in raising him during the year. And a child of one year old will be more happy to communicate with those to whom he has long been accustomed.
Not always relatives live with us, so you can invite the first friends of the baby. You should not call everyone with whom you play together in the sandbox, even if your baby is very sociable. It is not a fact that other children differ in the same way.Therefore, for the first time, it will be enough to invite 1-2 mothers with children. But you need to be prepared for the fact that the children do not have the same regimes, and some of them will not be able to come at a convenient time for you. In addition, you will have to carefully consider the children’s menu so that it is festive and hypoallergenic for all kids at the same time.
What kind of drink to treat children – Strawberry lemonade
No one will refuse aromatic strawberry lemonade. After all, it is much tastier than store soda.
We will need:
- strawberries – 1 kg,
- lemon – 2-3 pcs.,
- mint – 1 bunch,
- sugar – to taste.
How to cook:
Scald lemons with boiling water and squeeze the juice out of them. Finely chop the mint, tear off the sepals from the strawberries, wash and chop with a blender in mashed potatoes.
In a bowl, combine the strawberry puree, mint, lemon juice and sugar. Spread the resulting blank for lemonade into empty plastic bottles, filling the bottles no more than a third.
Place the bottles in the freezer until the strawberry mass is completely frozen. At a picnic, all you need to do is topping up the bottles of soda or plain water and wait a little. Delicious and healthy strawberry lemonade is ready!
Brief scenario of a child’s birthday 1 year
A child’s first birthday is a holiday that can tire a child. Therefore, the script should not be too intense for the child. Let the guests participate, but the baby does not need to be pulled for every competition.He quickly gets tired of it. A general outline of the scenario can be drawn up. And already the mother, based on the list of guests, the nature of the child, the venue and the budget, will clarify and supplement it.
- Meeting guests. Guests can be greeted in poetic form and officially. But, given that all the guests do not come at the same time, you can simply meet all the guests and receive gifts with the birthday boy in your arms. The kid will be happy with such an abundance of new things
- Invite the waiting guests to look at the birthday person’s photos that you hung on the walls or photo posters
- When all the guests have arrived, you can invite everyone to the table for the first toast to the birthday person.After the toast, you can sing the classic song “Happy Birthday to You” to the birthday boy. Toasts during the evening can be done in a fun way. This is a children’s holiday. The toast speaker can hum toast, dance, or speak while standing on a chair
- Competitions. In order not to tire the guests, it is better to present the contests in parts. Alternating children and adults, mobile and drinking
- Arrange a photo session while the baby is not yet tired of everyone’s attention
- In the interval between contests and toasts, compose a memorable telegram for the child with the guests.Print the form. And ask the guests to name the adjectives in turn. Fill out the telegram. Then read the result
- Birthday cake
- After the cake, you can play a film about the first year of the birthday man’s life
- After the film, invite guests to fill out a wish book
For the birthday of a one-year-old child, this scenario is enough. Don’t overdo it with contests. Remember that your child is still quite a toddler. Don’t let him get emotionally overwhelmed.
Where to celebrate?
How to celebrate your first birthday so that the event is fun, budgetary and childish enough? The first question to be solved is the choice of the venue. You can celebrate the year at home, in a cafe or outdoors. Let’s consider the pros and cons of each option.
Birthday at home
The first birthday is most often celebrated at home. Several factors speak in favor of this choice:
- the familiar atmosphere has a relaxing effect on the birthday person, numerous guests are less embarrassing, frightening factors (candles, firecrackers, exclamations) are experienced more calmly; 90 095 90 094 celebrating at home is always cheaper than in cafes or entertainment complexes;
- During the holiday, you can always change your baby’s clothes by changing pants or a T-shirt.
Birthday in a cafe
Of course, one year is far from an anniversary, but a change of scenery will not be superfluous. Mothers are especially fond of celebrating holidays in cafes. Why? Because it is not necessary:
- to cook anything;
- wash dishes;
- to do the cleaning.
Only celebration remains on the agenda, all the troubles are transferred to the shoulders of specialists. The entertainment program can be entrusted to animators or compiled by yourself.If the atmosphere of the cafe impresses, but the cuisine leaves much to be desired, you can always turn to catering.
Birthday in nature
When celebrations fall in the summer months, people often decide to celebrate them outdoors. Children’s parties should not be an exception. Parents should understand that kids need space, any opportunity for learning about the world around them is valuable. However, we must not forget that at one year old, not every baby is confidently on his feet.You will have to either keep it on handles for the whole holiday, or carry it in a stroller. If the baby is already actively running, then you will have to run with him, leaving the guests unattended. So that the guests are not on their own, but still be near the birthday man, you can organize games in which everyone will participate.
How to decorate a room for a party
If you decide to celebrate your baby’s birthday at home, it is enough to decorate only the room in which the celebration itself will take place. To decorate the room, you can use balloons, colored banners, lay out photo albums with children’s photographs in prominent places, or publish a festive wall newspaper.When decorating a room for the holiday, you should adhere to some recommendations.
- Decorating the walls and ceiling with colorful balloons, you should carefully approach their choice. Balls made of thin, fragile material burst much faster, and this sound can greatly scare the baby.
- Give all the guests colorful paper caps and horns, as adults sometimes want to fool around and return to childhood.
- Draw posters with congratulations, print photos of the baby.You can make an interesting photo newspaper. Surely you have photos of the baby in different poses and funny moments, place them in the form of a train of 12 cars, where in each trailer there is a photo of a baby from birth to a year, or take photos of the birthday boy flying up on drawn balloons. If you do not know how to draw, an art editor, for example, Photoshop, will come to help you, or contact a professional who will help you make a calendar or photo collage out of your photos, or perhaps he will just pick up interesting frames.
- Organize a place for your baby to play, bring his favorite toys, entertainment, play his favorite songs quietly.
You should not decorate the room too generously: a lot of new impressions and bright colors on the walls and ceiling may not reflect in the best way on the fragile psyche of the crumbs, he can get upset and start being capricious.
Checklist of preparation for the holiday for one year
It is not enough just to plan the organization of the celebration.It is better to draw up a step-by-step algorithm, but much better to use the checklist we have prepared for the birthday of one year of the baby, in which we will tell you tips on how not to forget everything.

- Disposable colored plates. Plates can be selected in the same theme as the tablecloth.They come in different sizes

The design of a candy bar depends a lot on your budget, since making beautiful sweets to order is not cheap.
What to cook for the first birthday
Despite the fact that the child will not appreciate the culinary skills of the mother, this is not a reason to leave the holiday dishes boring.Salads, snacks, meat and other dishes can be decorated in the form of insects, animals and other things.
As for the dishes for adult guests, in this regard, the hosts should not have any difficulties in choosing the menu – here you can serve whatever they like. But the festive table for one-year-old babies has its own specifics, since at this age their diet is not yet so wide, so the main emphasis should be on the bright decoration of the table.
A separate table of appropriate sizes should be set for children so that the little ones can feel comfortable and free.Dishes must be served in their original setting. For example, fruit slices can be arranged on a beautiful plate in the form of a funny face or a bright ornament. Biscuits with fruit pieces are also appropriate. Moreover, they can be offered in the form of useful “sweets” – wrapped in bright pieces of paper.
Various curds are also recommended for the children’s table, which the majority of children love very much. And, of course, there must be various juices to quench your thirst.
The menu should be separate – after all, the hero of the occasion is only one year old and his diet differs from adult food. In addition, other kids may be present at the holiday. To please them, you can prepare the following dishes:
- some interesting fruit composition ;
- on mashed potatoes laid out in a circle , draw eyes, nose and mouth with liver pate;
- cut a sandwich with boiled sausage in the form of a bunny, turtle or other animal ;
- Cut the cheese into different geometric shapes .
Adults can be offered any kind of festive cuisine.
Birthday cake for a child 1 year old
A child is unlikely to appreciate the beauty of the cake, but for memory and for a photo, you can order a beautiful cake that matches the theme of the event, the gender of the child, and the interests of the child.
Depending on the hobbies of the child’s beloved, the cake can be made:
- With figures of Masha and the Bear
- With a crown
- With a ball
- With bodysuits and booties
- With bears
allow you to choose almost any design of the future cake.
Making the Menu
When it comes to food for adults, you shouldn’t have much worries. You have the right to submit what you see fit. But the children’s menu needs to be well thought out, since it is not always possible for children to eat what you serve for adults. For children, you can prepare fruit salads, make beautiful cupcakes and gingerbread. You can bake a sponge cake or a banana muffin. For the children’s table, you can prepare dishes with cottage cheese, as they will be useful for the child’s body.And do not forget about drinks, children can be treated with compote or juice.
Cakes for 1 year old girl
But since at the age of one year the diet is not as wide as you would like, focus on decoration. Depending on the style of the celebration, choose the appropriate napkins and tablecloth. Think in advance how you will decorate the dishes. To emphasize that the holiday is really children’s – you can put all baby food jars.
Pay attention to the tablecloth, because it first of all attracts the attention of guests.Pink and blue tablecloths look nice. You can also choose a tablecloth with themed designs.

Posters for the first birthday of the child
It will be interesting to use posters containing photographs of the child in the design. The poster can depict anything you like in a children’s theme:
- A locomotive, in the cars of which there will be photos
- Clock, instead of temporary numbers of which – a photo of a child
- Just a beautifully designed poster without any theme, where in frames there will be photos
Posters can be used to decorate a child’s room or a corridor if there is a holiday at home.If the holiday is on the street, then hang it between the trees or on a prepared stand.
Place the best photos of your baby’s first year on the poster.
It is quite natural that on the first birthday of their child, every parent tries to dress the birthday boy in all the best. With girls, this issue is easily resolved – young ladies try on lace dresses and bright shoes with great pleasure. Boys do not always take into account the opinion of their parents, and very often new clothes cause a feeling of rejection in them.
Try to talk to your child, tell him that he has a holiday today, and the birthday person should be the most beautiful on it. If persuasion does not work, and the baby categorically refuses new clothes – do not insist, dress him in casual clothes. The most important thing is that your child feels comfortable in any situation.
First birthday: how to celebrate without forgetting about mom
In most cases, it is the mother who is most waiting for the child to turn one year old.She also decides how to arrange a birthday. In this bustle, you can easily drive yourself up with deeds so that no festive mood will remain. To prevent this from happening, you need not to refuse help, plan everything strongly in advance and do it gradually, so that there is no emergency at the last moment. And remember that when a baby is one year old, adults are more concerned about how to celebrate a holiday, so if necessary, lower the bar if you feel that you are not doing it.
What to give a baby?
The tradition of receiving birthday gifts is certainly pleasant for both the birthday person and the giver.In this case, there are usually no problems with choosing a presentation.
However, when purchasing something interesting for your baby, you should avoid things that are not recommended for this age, namely:
- large soft toys;
- toys-sets, where there are a lot of small parts;
- products made from suspicious materials that pose a potential danger to a child;
- Toys with harsh sounds.
Everything else depends only on your imagination and desire to please your baby.The following purchases can be used as a gift:
- locomotives, cars, tractors, etc.; 90 095
- dolls or various animals;
- drawing sets, easels;
- sports equipment – balls, skipping ropes, skittles, wheelchairs;
- building sets, cubes, pyramids;
- original books with dense pages;
- swings, sledges, children’s furniture – chairs, tables, dressers;
Apart from contests, there are several traditions for the first birthday.One of the most common is the ceremony of tonsure the godparents of a child. The godparents take turns cutting off four strands of the birthday man’s hair in the form of a cross and folding them into a scarf.
These hairs are kept only in their own home, behind the images of saints. Thus, you give God and the Saints the opportunity to protect and help your child. Therefore, the child will always be under the protection of God’s power and grace.
Birthday photo session of a child 1 year
You can arrange a photo session on your own, or you can invite a photographer.To make the pictures more interesting and so that the plates are not visible in the background, it is better to organize a photo zone.
The photo zone can be organized in the simplest one, which can be done easily with the help of improvised means.
And you can try, spend more time preparing and make a very interesting and beautiful photo zone, near which any guest will want to take a photo. Or rent a photo studio for 1 hour.
The first birthday should be spent so that beautiful photos, videos and simply the best moments of the holiday remain in memory.
Scenarios for holiday contests
The child’s well-being and his mood depend on a properly prepared program, the purpose of which is to amuse the guests and give them the opportunity to have a pleasant time at your place. There shouldn’t be a lot of contests themselves – 4-5 exciting fun is enough. At the same time, be sure to think over in advance a way to encourage the winners and participants in the games, stock up on interesting souvenirs for children and adults.
What are the best ideas for the competition for such a day? Of course, your child and his guest peers are still young enough to fully participate in the festive game program.Therefore, it should be designed primarily for adults. We offer a lot of options, from which you have the opportunity to choose the most optimal for your case.
All kids take part. The competition requires pacifiers that will need to be spat as far as possible. The one who does it the best is declared the winner.
All children are given bottles with drinking water, equipped with nipples with small holes.The winner’s task is to drink as much liquid as possible in one minute. The action can be accompanied by perky music.
The same competition is easily adaptable for adults. If the men present express a desire, they can be given the same attributes, but pour champagne instead of water. Most likely, everyone will be the winners in this case.
“Like two drops of water”
This competition is attended by adult guests. An envelope is prepared in advance, where notes are placed with instructions for different parts of the body and face.Each of the guests, in turn, takes out one note, and they say which of the relatives the birthday boy looks like in terms of his body. All data is recorded by the organizer, after which the results are summed up and announced.
For example, a child may be like mom three times, dad five times, and grandparents several times.
A True Gourmet
For this competition, you need to stock up on a few cans of baby food. The labels must be sealed in advance with paper tags with the inscription – the number of the container.Each of the adults present should take turns tasting the contents of the jar and trying to guess what the puree is made from. After everyone is done “taking a sample”, you need to peel off the labels with numbers in order to understand who is the best versed in baby food. Win here – guessing the name of the puree in all the jars.
“Mr. or Mrs. Accuracy”
If the hero of the occasion does not particularly mind, he will be the main participant in this competition. Each of the adult guests in turn picks up the baby in his arms and offhand names his approximate weight.The one who turned out to be the most accurate in his assumptions is awarded some kind of comic prize.
“Guess the fate”
This entertainment involves the participation of the birthday person first, and then, if desired, all the other kids who come to visit him. Some items are placed randomly on a large tray placed on a chair or children’s table. Your child must choose one of them, and this choice will symbolize his future destiny or preferences in life.As attributes for the action, you can use:
- book – symbolizing the mind and the desire for knowledge;
- keys – good welfare;
- ring – love and quick marriage or marriage;
- coins – prosperity and wealth;
- a skein of thread – a long and happy life;
- bottle – a tendency to have fun;
- screwdriver – technical ability;
- chocolate – sweet life.
Of course, you shouldn’t take such “predictions” very seriously, but the kids’ interest in the competition and the general fun in this case is guaranteed.It is especially funny when the baby is not content with one object, but captures almost everything with his little hands.
Letters from the Future
This assignment is to be assigned to adult guests. The organizer of the holiday invites everyone to write congratulations to the birthday man, which he can read seventeen years later, on his 18th birthday. Participants are given envelopes with an inscription indicating when the letter is written and when it should be opened.
“Who is the most attentive”
This competition in the form of a quiz will be of interest to those who were directly involved in the upbringing of the birthday boy in the first year of his life.Mom, dad, grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts, uncles, godparents – all those who, undoubtedly, will compete with great pleasure among themselves for the title of the most attentive relative.
The attributes for the quiz can be made by yourself. It can be a large paper chamomile with question petals. As its alternative, a small box is considered, where leaves folded into a tube with written questions are folded. Participants take turns tearing off the petals, or taking out a piece of paper from the box and answering the questions there.
There can be a lot of them, for example:
- What was the weight of the birthday boy at birth?
- How tall was he born?
- What does he like to eat?
- What dish does the baby refuse?
- State the name of the doctor who delivered the baby.
- When did the baby’s first tooth come out?
- When did he first go on his own?
- How many teeth does your baby have today?
- Name the day of the week when the child was born
- What are the godparents’ names?
- When was the baby baptized?
- What is the time of the baby’s birth?
- How much will he lead now?
- What sign of the zodiac does it belong to?
- Name the birthday boy’s eye color
- Which toy does he like the most?
Do not forget that you do all the preparatory activities not only for yourself and your guests, but first of all for your baby. Create an atmosphere of warmth, kindness and joy on this day. Even if the weather is dull outside the window, it should not affect your mood with a tiny one.
It is in your power to make the sun shine on this day, even if you have to draw it.Imagine and give your baby a wonderful holiday, where everyone is smiling and having fun.

Child’s birthday: how it is celebrated in Germany | Culture and Lifestyle in Germany and Europe | DW
Birthday for children is a holiday, for parents – stress. Something like this begins every article on this topic that brings families around the world together. There are, however, a few things you can learn from the Germans to make this holiday a memorable one for the birthday person.
German journalist Barbara Schniebel now lives in the United States and maintains a blog dedicated to organizing children’s birthday parties.”What can you learn from the Germans?” – the mother of three children answers this question without delay: “The fact that the main thing for them is guests. Celebrating a birthday with your beloved friends, playing cool games, eating treats together and just fooling around is more important than a three-story cake, horses for rent, 200 balloons or 50 guests. The pleasure that can be received together is what remains in the memory of adults and children. ”
How many guests to invite
Experts advise to invite no more than 15 people.This is the amount at which you can still not lose control of the situation. But German parents have an even simpler rule: invite children only as long as the birthday boy turns. Three years? This means there will be three guests. Parents who follow this rule believe that this is how a child learns from early childhood to make decisions on his own in the presence of specified criteria (it is important that the baby chooses who will come to him on his birthday) and pay attention to his guests.
What about adults? This is also a very important aspect to pay attention to.In Germany, many invite only children. They don’t like to arrange a separate party for adults with a laid table. Parents bring and pick up children. They can be offered to drink coffee, less often – champagne for the birthday person. But, as a rule, everything is limited to congratulations at the door. The Germans are very consistent in this: the holiday is for children, so there is no need to entertain and treat parents.
Birthday: what is the timetable?
German punctuality makes itself felt here.The exact time is indicated in the invitation. For example, from three to six. Three hours – this is how much the average Germans devote to celebrating the birthday of preschool children. Therefore, it is better not to be late for the Germans. Invitations are sent in advance or sent in person. Someone uses cards that are already ready for this, but more often the parents, together with the child, make original invitations with the motive of the holiday itself. The invitation contains all the necessary information: the time and place of the holiday, as well as a contact phone number for the parents, which you need to call to inform whether your child will come or not.
The main question: how to celebrate
Germans celebrate, as in any other country, in different ways. Parents of “summer children” are incredibly happy: they almost always use the opportunity to spend their birthday outdoors. And here the ingenuity and ingenuity of German parents can only be envied. One of the most beloved formats is the Schatzsuche game. Even if they have their own garden, they go far beyond its territory: the treasure can be hidden in a nearby park, forest, vineyard, in the playground.Homemade maps and tips from caring adults help children find them. The main thing is to think over the scenario in advance and hide the treasure in a safe place. They ask you to take care of comfortable shoes and clothes in the invitation.
Even in Germany, bread baked on a stick (Stockbrot) is very popular. The dough is wound in a spiral on sticks and then fried over a fire or grill. Older children can do it themselves – of course, under the supervision of adults. The kids are given ready-made treats.
“But what I love most is how gifts are unfolded in Germany.Children sit in a circle, each holding his own gift. In the middle is an empty bottle. The birthday boy spins it up and opens the gift of the child that the neck of the bottle will point to. After enthusiastic exclamations and words of gratitude, the bottle is unwound further. This is how attention is paid to each guest and his gift, “says Barbara.
In summer, birthdays are often held outdoors
If we talk about general trends, then, perhaps, the older the children, the less often Germans celebrate their birthdays at home.Birthday is spent in museums, trampoline centers, workshops. The average cost of organizing such a holiday is 200 euros. For example: three hours in a museum with a program will cost 120 euros (the maximum number of guests is 12 people). This is without drinks and cake.
Do it yourself
Germans approach their child’s birthday celebrations in a practical way. Therefore, they make a lot – from decorations to cake – themselves. Often, instead of a cake, they are limited to muffins. The cost of a cake from a pastry chef to order starts from 100 euros.The German mother will bake and arrange it herself. It is customary for each guest to give a small gift at the end of the holiday (Mitgebsel) – sweets, small toys, books, handicrafts.
“On children’s birthday parties, Germans are very fond of doing something with children. This is how they learn new skills. For example, dyeing paper like marble. At the same time, Germans rarely buy special ready-made kits for needlework. They rely on recycling. a move, for example, is often a roll left over from toilet paper “, – Barbara shares her observations.
Of course, the older the children are, the richer the holiday program becomes. In large cities, such as Munich, Berlin, there are also specialized firms that organize birthday parties for children. A 2.5-hour program with room decoration, one animator (up to six guests), gifts for guests will cost about 600 euros. But this is far from a widespread phenomenon: most Germans prefer to arrange a holiday for their child themselves.
In small towns there is such a tradition – to take guests home.All children, including the birthday boy, accompanied by an adult, walk along the village. In autumn, the procession is often complemented by lanterns. This way you can avoid unnecessary chaos when parents come to pick up their children from their birthdays, the German blogger is sure.

90,000 traditions, the essence of the holiday and preparation, photographs.
The name of one of the main Islamic celebrations – Kurban Bayram (Turkic) or Eid al-Adha (Arabic) – literally translates as “the holiday of the sacrifice”. It is celebrated by Muslims around the world 70 days after the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
Within a month and a half before the onset of Eid al-Adha, Muslims make a hajj – a pilgrimage to the holy places in Mecca. A difficult, full of hardship path helps to raise the level of religious and moral development. According to the pillars of Islam, every believer should perform the Hajj at least once in his life. Eid al-Adha is the apogee of the pilgrimage and proclaims mercy, kindness and love for people.
The holiday is celebrated in honor of the Prophet Ibrahim. As the Koran says, the angel Jabrail appeared to him in a dream and ordered, by the will of Allah, to sacrifice his son Ismail.Preparing for the ceremony, Ibrahim went to the valley of Mina, to the location of Mecca. Ismail followed his father, obeying the will of the parent and the Almighty. During the sacrifice, the angel Gabriel gave the prophet Ibrahim as a substitute for a ram. For the devotion and spiritual purity of Ibrahim, Allah bestowed life on Ismail.

“Allah, having recognized the sincerity of Ibrahim and his son through this test, appealed to him as a friend:“ O Ibrahim! You justified Our suggestion and did not hesitate to fulfill Our command. That’s enough for you. We will facilitate our test by rewarding you for your good deed. Thus, We reward the virtuous! The test that We subjected Ibrahim and his son is a test that revealed their true faith in the Lord of the inhabitants of the worlds.We ransomed his son with a great sacrifice so that he would live by the command of Allah Almighty. ”

Muslims prepare for the celebration in advance and observe fasting for 10 days.
It is advisable for the faithful to spend the night on the eve of Eid al-Adha, reciting namaz. It is believed that at this time the Almighty answers the requests of his slaves. The Messenger of Allah said: “Whoever was awake on the night of breaking the fast and the night of Qurban in the service of the Almighty, his heart will not be grieved when sorrow befalls others.”
Celebration of Eid al-Adha begins early in the morning. After taking a full bath and wearing neat clothes, Muslims pray collectively in the mosque. In the sanctuary, they read the Koran, listen to the imam’s sermon, which explains the meaning and origin of the rite of sacrifice.
After the sacrifice, one third should be kept for yourself, the second third should be given as alms, and the rest should be used for a festive meal in the family. Since the sacrifice is made in the name of Allah, it should benefit the beggars and reward the donors in the future life.The ritual treat of the poor – sadaqa, thin, protects the giver from all sorts of misfortunes and illnesses.

The Eid al-Adha celebration lasts three to four days and is considered a desirable and blessed time to visit relatives and friends to whom it is customary to give gifts.
Since ancient times, Muslims have been famous for their hospitality and cordiality. Every true believer these days tries to gather as many guests as possible under the roof of his house, to treat from the heart and make people happy. It is customary to prepare dishes traditional for this holiday from the meat of the sacrificial lamb, and the more dishes you manage to prepare, the better.
On the first day, the hostesses serve dishes from the liver and heart. On the second day, the meal begins with soups cooked on sheep’s heads and legs.For the second – roast, complemented by a side dish of rice or vegetables. On the third and fourth days, fried lamb ribs and traditional manti, shashlik, lagman, pilaf, beshbarmak are cooked. Not a single feast is complete without everyone’s favorite sweets and desserts – pies, flat cakes and dishes made from almonds and raisins.
Kurban Bayram in Russia is an official holiday in the republics of Adygea, Bashkortostan, Dagestan, Ingushetia, Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachay-Cherkessia, Tatarstan and in the Chechen Republic.
This year the holiday will be remembered by Muslims as a long-awaited event: the opening of the main shrine of Moscow – the Cathedral Mosque on Prospekt Mira.This building appeared here in 1904. He miraculously managed to survive during the years of Soviet power. For about 10 years, the mosque has hosted the Council of Muftis and the residence of Mufti Gainutdin.
After the reconstruction, the building acquired six floors, and the area of the mosque increased 20 times. The designers of the renovated building have combined the canonical decoration of the mosque with modern technologies. The works were carried out at the expense of charitable contributions and voluntary donations.
“Eid al-Adha is the day when sacrifice becomes a blessing for all haves and have-nots.He reminds us that the traditions of Islam, like that of other world religions, are based on the eternal values of justice, goodness, mercy and concern for one’s neighbor, regardless of his nationality and religion. Truly, this is a celebration of the rapprochement of families, nations and the community as a whole, which is especially important today, when there are more and more manifestations of extremism in society, attempts to pervert the essence of Islam, use it for selfish purposes.
In his famous sermon, delivered during the Farewell Hajj, which became a testament to descendants, the Prophet Muhammad said: “Excellence is only in piety and good deeds.”
