For every parent, the child’s birthday is a special event

General design tips

Before we start considering specific decor ideas for a child’s birthday, let’s pay attention to the following points:

  • If there are children among the guests, it is better to divide the space into several zones: a playroom (children’s room), where it will be possible to hold contests, organize active games and a festive table zone.
  • When decorating several separate rooms, you should maintain a single concept, otherwise the apartment will look pretentious and tasteless. Also, do not overdo it with the amount of jewelry..
  • Decorative elements should not be too bright, as they can lead to overexcitation of the baby’s nervous system. It is better to give preference to calm, pastel colors..
  • All jewelry should be placed at such a height that the baby does not reach for them..

To create an atmosphere of celebration in the house, if the boy turns 1 year old, you can use a certain color scheme (white, blue, blue and green tones) and attributes typical for the life of young hooligans (cars, balls, robots, etc.)

Arch of colorful balloons and birthday greetings

First, you should decide on the room where the holiday will take place.

If a girl celebrates her first birthday, it is better to use pink, red, white and gold colors to decorate the room. For decor, bows, dolls, natural and artificial flowers, castles or other items that are associated with little princesses are suitable..

Since the main hero of the occasion is 1 year old, jewelry must meet the following safety requirements:

  1. Big size. This is necessary so that the elements of festive decor, if nevertheless a child or his little guests reach for them, cannot fit into their mouth..
  2. When using balloons, do not try to inflate them as much as possible. If they burst, the baby may be intimidated by a loud sound..
  3. If natural flowers serve as decorative elements, choose those that are odorless and are not allergens (it is unacceptable to use lilies, orchids, mimosa).

Room decoration

The festive mood begins with what we see around. Therefore, we pay a lot of attention to interior decoration..

Decorating the room with colorful balloons for birthday

Balloons are the easiest and most affordable way to decorate a room for a child’s birthday

We decorate the walls and ceiling

For wall decoration, you can use paper garlands, balls or ribbons. Various panels and collages, greeting posters and streamers also look good..

DIY festive garland with cartoon characters

Garlands can be made from anything: from yarn, from fabric, from colored cardboard, from toys, but just from what your imagination tells

A great idea for ceiling decoration is paper or satin ribbons that diverge from the center to the edges. To complement the composition, use flowers from balloons, randomly located paper pom-poms, suspended at different heights.

Design ideas

Before decorating a room for a year, a boy should decide on a theme.

Possible options:

  • The kingdom of the little prince. You can make a castle in blue and light blue from cardboard. For a princess who celebrates her first birthday, decor is made in the same way, only the color is changed to pink.

  • Pirate Party. A ship is made from large sheets of cardboard (black sails are made of fabric). Nearby, you can place a palm tree made of balloons, and under it put a chest (bag) with treasures in the form of chocolate coins and put crossed swords for the entourage. Use thin rope or jute rope to decorate the ceiling (instead of ribbons).

    A pirate ship needs corrugated cardboard – large packing boxes from a refrigerator or TV

  • Cosmic expanses. This is easy to arrange if the room has black curtains. Making garlands of stars from fishing line and foil and placing them above the window, we get a shimmering sky. We cut out a rocket from cardboard, paint it to your taste and attach it to the wall or put it on the floor. In place of the porthole, you can stick a photo of the birthday person. At the same time, it is better to decorate the ceiling with blue and white balls..

The listed decorations for the room can be made independently using what every housewife always has at hand (scissors, paper, glue, threads). In this case, the options proposed in the table can be combined. For example, draw a congratulatory poster and stick a photo and decorative elements (pompons or flowers) on it, place family photos on the garland flags, etc..

However, it is necessary to start making such elements in a few weeks (compositions and garlands of balloons do not count). As you can see from the table, each handmade decoration does not take much time, but if you count how much is needed to decorate an entire room, you get impressive numbers..

To decorate a baby’s room, it is not at all necessary to come up with too complicated decor.

What to do if there is no time?

When a one-year-old baby is in the house, it is unlikely that parents have a lot of free time to create decor with their own hands. In this case, you can turn to the following options:

  1. Balloons. The classic way to decorate a children’s party. Order balloons filled with helium for your birthday and place them under the ceiling. In addition, arrange in the space various compositions of balls (in the form of an arch, number, name or garland).

  2. Metallized balls in the form of numbers, stars or hearts look very laconic..

    Foil unicorn balloon

    Foil balls are more durable, hold their shape well and are not afraid of children’s hands

  3. Ready-made paper birthday decorations. In stores specializing in festive decoration, there are always ready-made pom-poms, accordion balls, garlands of tassel pom-poms, volumetric stars and flowers, flat garlands and greeting posters. It remains only to harmoniously place them in the room..

    Paper balls can be mounted on the wall or simply scattered on the floor

Important! When decorating the interior with balls, use 2-3 colors. A monochromatic design looks boring, but if you use 4 or more color schemes, it will turn out too bright.

Making surprises for guests of the birthday man with his own hands

The holiday will become even more interesting if guests also receive small gifts. Surprise boxes can hold candy, cakes or small toys

Children’s festive table decoration

Consider several decorating ideas that will help delight not only the child and his guests, but also adults.

So beautiful and delicious “fireworks” from your favorite sweets will appear on the table..

Bouquet of fruits and berries

To make the decorations on your table not only tasty, but also useful, make a bouquet of your favorite fruits and berries.

  • toothpicks;

  • fruits (for example, bananas, kiwi, apples, pears);

Then alternately plant the prepared fruits and berries on toothpicks, and attach to the base in a circle, starting from the bottom row.The resulting composition can be supplemented with sprigs of rosemary, tarragon, mint or lemon balm.

Important. Such decoration is not recommended to be done earlier than 2-3 hours before the start of the holiday..

Multicolored glasses

When there is little time left for the design, you can use a quick, but very effective method. Pour multicolored dragees into martini or cognac glasses (for example, sea stones, skittles, M&M’s) or small gummies in the form of animals and berries.

A great way to add variety to your kids’ table. You can use ready-made ones or make yourself out of paper. Find bright, colorful pictures of cartoon characters, cars, booties, soccer balls, etc. on the Internet. On the first birthday of a child, toppers in the form of number 1 are perfect. Using any graphic editor, “cut out” images in the form of a circle, oval, square or rectangle and print on a color printer (choose thick paper). Glue the finished templates together in pairs by inserting a toothpick or a small skewer between the two images (depending on the desired decor height).

Paper toppers for decorating the cake

Paper toppers are suitable for decorating a cake or pastry

Toppers can be used to decorate cakes, cupcakes, cake, combine with other decorations, for example, insert into a fruit bouquet or a vase with sweets.

Table setting

Pay attention to the following nuances:

  • individual textile napkins for guests can be folded in an original way, for example, in the form of bunny faces;
  • if you decide to use bright dishes, you should choose a plain tablecloth and napkins;
  • cutlery can be decorated with bows made of satin ribbons or tulle.
