They can be shaped like a teddy bear, a milk bottle, a baby food jar, a cartoon character, etc. Since these kinds of parties are arranged for the baby, it would be best to add to the decorum items that would capture the baby’s interest and are age appropriate, at the same time .For example balloons, teddy bears or even a cake representing a cartoon character can be used. Moreover, these days there’s a fashion for themed parties where the host and the guests dress up and act according to the theme. Themes like barnyard animals, ‘Teletubbies’, ‘Barney and friends’, ‘Dora the explorer’, ‘Looney tunes’, ‘Strawberry shortcake’ or others relating to any other cartoon that a baby likes, can be chosen. Even a simple princess theme can be chosen to make the party special for the baby. The parents of the baby should try to make the party as colorful as possible by matching the table runners, plates and cups with the theme. Also, the parents can assemble goodie/treat bags for the kids coming to these parties. These treat bags may have color pencils, small toys, candies or other edible items.
