First Birthday Party Highchair Tutu supplies needed:
First Birthday Party Highchair Tutu Steps:
- Take a piece of tulle and fold it in half so you’ll need to make sure that the tulle is the length that you want when it is folded.
- Hold the fold of the tulle above the elastic with the elastic over the tulle.
- Loop the longer piece of tulle over the elastic and through the fold of the tulle.
- Pull the longer piece tight through the loop.
- The loop should be pulled tight to the elastic and what is seen around the outside of the highchair tray once it is attached.
- Place the sticky velcro squares around the outside of the highchair and match them up with the inside of the tutu so that it will fit flush against the highchair.
- The tutu will need to be tied in the back once the birthday girl or boy is placed in the seat so that first birthday party pictures can be taken.
First Birthday Party Tips for Success
- The first birthday party is more about amusing the other kids that are attending than about amusing your one year old.
- When creating the menu keep your adults in mind and just make a large dish of a kid friendly food like mac n cheese or chicken fingers.
- Collages with twelve pictures with each picture representing a month of your child’s life with milestones like first tooth, first time crawling, standing or eating solid foods are great milestones to track.
- Get the guests involved by having them write a note to the first birthday girl or boy to open on their eighteenth birthday. This is especially important for grandparents and great-grandparents that may not be there for her eighteenth birthday.
- Think about creating a smash cake for your first birthday boy or girl. It will make the other children attending less crazy about getting their slice of cake and much easier for first birthday party pictures.
- Have your highchair tutu attached to the outside of the tray so that all you need to do is pop the tray onto the highchair.
- Place the highchair in a spot with a visually pleasing or blank background so that the focus during the first birthday party pictures is on the birthday girl or boy and not on the background.
For Avery’s Fairy First Birthday party I decided not to go with a ribbon around the outside. Since the decor consisted of Tulle Pom Poms it only seemed natural to leave the tulle exposed. I loved how well it matched the Fairy Magic Wands.
