1st Birthday Party Checklist

For moms who like having a checklist like me, here’s something for you.

This list is ideal for those who plan to hire a stylist. If you’re not hiring one, I will be creating a DIY 1st Birthday Party Checklist for you in my next blog post.

I created this list based on my 8 years of experience in covering birthday parties and from planning my own daughter’s party. You may add or remove some items to adjust the list according to your budget & needs. Otherwise, you will not miss out on anything important if you make this checklist your guide.

I know mommies that planning a party can be veryyyy stressful. However,  don’t forget that you’re doing this for your baby. So,  just enjoy every moment of it!

Happy Party Planning!

Don’t forget to tag me in some pictures okay?
