The first birthday of a baby is celebrated with zest and vigour by the parents. It cannot be planned in a day and you have everything to plan very carefully. It is a fact that for your baby’s first birthday, you have to spend a considerable amount of money. But, there’s no need to worry about. There are ways by which you can plan your baby’s first birthday without breaking your bank.
Estimate your budget – At first, you have to estimate your budget. Know how much money you are willing to spend on the occasion. Now, calculate the total amount. You can do the estimation that how much money you will spend on the venue, beverages, food, lightning, flowers and baby photography. While making the arrangements, you should keep in mind your budget too.
Photographer – A high-profile photographer will charge more money. But, you can get an affordable photographer if you search online. You can hire a student photographer in a reasonable price, who can take pictures like a pro. But, don’t hire an inexperienced photographer even if he will charge low money.
Guest list and invitation cards – Think that how many guests you want to invite in the ceremony. Make a rough guest list. You may have a big fat family. But, it doesn’t mean that you have to send all of them a costly invitation card. If you do these, then you will spend more and more money. You can invite your friends, relatives, colleagues and neighbours over phone or you can send them an invitation card through the email address too. You may have to waste some hours, but you don’t have to waste more money. Additionally, you can bring out your artistic skills and make the invitation card on your own. You can also take some advices from your friends and relatives.
Music – Music plays a vital role in any occasion. You can hire a DJ, who will charge moderate money. If you are not getting a good DJ, then you can ask one of your friends, who are good in singing, to sing in the occasion ceremony. Such a person will make the venue musical. Moreover, you can hire a local boy band too.
Flowers – A venue without flowers will look dull. But, some flowers are seasonal, so you can’t get every flower even if you desire. Take some advice from a professional florist. The professional can give you good advices too.
Food – Think that what food items would be loved by your guests. Hire a reputed caterer for handling the food section.
