Everyone has an opinion about 1st birthday parties. “He/she is too little,” many will say. “He/she will never remember the blowout birthday bash you threw. Why spend all that money?”
And that’s true. Your baby won’t remember a first birthday party no matter how special or beautiful, but that doesn’t mean that a celebration isn’t in order. Your baby may not know why everyone important in their life is congregating, or why they’re allowed to eat cake, skip naptime, or open presents. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter. It’s all about celebrating everyone involved in your baby’s life right along with them.
In this blog, we’ll talk about why it’s so important to celebrate their 1st birthday and how you can do so in a cost-effective and eco-friendly way.
Why Celebrate Your Baby’s 1st Birthday?
The 1st birthday party isn’t really for the baby. It’s for the people who trudged through baby’s first year and fought through the battles along the way. It’s for the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and anyone else who stuck it out through the frustrating and difficult times. Raising a baby isn’t easy, and it’s worth celebrating all the milestones that come with it.
If you’re gearing up for your baby’s 1st birthday party, let Sellebrate help. With the Sellebrate app, you don’t have to spend a fortune on a party you love. Below, we’ll highlight Birdie’s 1st Birthday party that featured DIY projects and decorations found on the Sellebrate app.
How to Decorate for Your Baby’s First Birthday
Download the Sellebrate app
Sellebrate is an eco-friendly marketplace where you can buy and sell items for your event or celebration. One of the reasons parents feel they can’t justify a 1st birthday party is because of the expense. If their child won’t remember it, does it really make sense to spend hundreds of dollars on a party?
Fortunately, you don’t have to choose between celebrating a milestone and saving money. Birdie’s 1st birthday celebration was practically off of a Pinterest board while using primarily recycled decorations purchased via Sellebrate or DIY projects.
Search for the decorations that you need
After you’ve entered your location, Sellebrate will show you the items listed near you - or use the filter for all locations to see many items that can be shipped! From gorgeous centerpieces to cake stands to backdrops that’ll bring your vision together, Sellebrate allows you to collaborate with others in your area. Party decorations don’t often have a purpose beyond your event. Pre-loved décor can be used and repurposed to reduce costs and avoid putting pressure on the Earth. Sellebrate is the perfect way to be environmentally and financially conscious while party planning.
Resell the decorations once you’re finished
Don’t need all of those party items taking up space in your garage or attic? Let’s face it, Birdie’s giant ‘1’ may not get reused anytime soon. In all likelihood, there’s another family celebrating a 1st birthday party nearby that could use it. Heck – they may even pay for it! Don’t forget to relist your items on the Sellebrate app after you’re finished with them.
From 1st birthday parties to dream wedding décor, event resale is the best way to find the items you want without breaking the bank. Sellebrate helps recirculate décor and items for people to use during birthdays, weddings, and other celebrations. Our goal is to advocate and care for the environment.
