Setting up a party can be both fun and nerve racking at the same time. There is a fine line between success and failure in setting up a party and on factor that can contribute to that is proper planning and your selection of party supplies. For events like the first birthday, you want to make sure that all the necessary components of fun and functionality are there. From party plates, birthday balloons to all other paraphernalia, your decisions to establish a party should be cohesive, interesting and really true to the spirit of enjoyment and child-like abandon.

Work on a theme

For classic birthday party styles, birthday balloons will definitely be standard fixtures, the regular rounded ones with a ribbon around the neck can really make any celebration fun and inviting. Choose at least 3 colors so that you can enjoy a nice range. If you work on a theme, choosing party supplies will not be that difficult. In fact, you will be able to focus on what kind of birthday supplies you should get. For a safari type of birthday party, you want to make sure that your party has those long, slender balloon types or worms that can be transformed to different kinds of animals. Birthday balloons are like modeling clay of fun. You can transform them as swords in a castle themed party or create any fun stuff like hats, animals, cars and more. Foil balloons are fancier versions and are great accents to the tables as well as in the gift station.

Decide on the dining utensils

If this is going to be a 1st birthday party, expect that there will be adults and kids. Make sure that you have eating utensils designed to address your party based on the demographics. Those plastic plates with separators are great for kids so that they can allocate a space for the main meal, some desserts and all other good stuff. There are also paper party plates to choose. The party supplies should be easy to clean up. Make sure to buy a good number of utensils. It is better to have too much rather than be short of party supplies.

Plan early

It is so much better to plan the party at least a month before. A 1st birthday party should be planned accordingly since this is the very first birthday of the child. When buying birthday balloons, it is better to buy wholesale ones so that you can save money and enjoy the pleasure of having tons of balloons for the party. Planning early allows you to gauge your budget and this can also help you in figuring out what to do for the party. Investing on good quality party supplies is vital so that you can be sure that you can use them again. If you buy hurriedly, you will end up buying random stuff that you might throw away in the future. Invest properly and plan early with your party supplies to save money and have supplies ready for random parties.
