Thumbs up My baby's first birthday is coming up!!!!!!

Hey, everyone. My name is Tonya and I have a baby boy , he is going to be one August 31st. I never had any birthday parties so I am a little scared... Any advice on what people do on birthdays?

I mean, I am from Russia and we don't have such parties as you do here so I am just lost...

Usually its liek a get together you get a cake and jsut sit around and chit chat

Welcome and Happy birthday to your son. My son will be turning 1 a week from today.

The easiest thing to do is go to your local supermarket and get a deli platter. then pick up a cake and some fruit and bread. Let your guests make their own deli sandwiches and then serve the fruit and cake for dessert.

welcome, some cake, balloons and fruit punch will do the trick.

Welcome. You're in Orlando. I would be worrying about the next 4 coming hurricanes and wing it with deli stuff and bakery bought cake too. Otherwise I'd be doing a grill thing with all kinds of salads and bakery bought birthday cake........And don't forget beer & iced sweet tea.
Happy Birthday to your little one, nina.

Thank you, guys.

Thank you for all the nice words. We had the party yesterday, made kebabs and had a cake. My little guy got cake all over him and was happy until we started wiping his face... It was pretty fun.
Quicksilver, I loved your quote about worrying, I worry all the time could be a year in advance, so I ll keep in mind these wise words. Thank you!

whatever you do.... do NOT give a 1-yr-old red velvet cake without a tarp on the floor.
Just a suggestion.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....
