Chil­dren’s birth­day

How to decorate a 1 year old girl's birthday with balloons?

How quick­ly time flies. It seemed like only yes­ter­day, my daugh­ter was dis­charged from the hos­pi­tal, and today she is already 1 year old. Although the baby still does not quite under­stand the sig­nif­i­cance of this date, it is bet­ter to make a hol­i­day for her on this day. To keep it in your mem­o­ry, you should work a lit­tle, tak­ing care of dec­o­rat­ing the room, buy­ing a gift, prepar­ing deli­cious dish­es for the baby and guests. While the child is still small, one should not start a mag­nif­i­cent cel­e­bra­tion, oth­er­wise it will not please the child so much as it will tire him. The best option would be the usu­al feast in the cir­cle of par­ents and peo­ple she knows. Such an atmos­phere will sure­ly appeal to the birth­day girl more.


With the approach of the first birth­day of the child, many par­ents begin to think about how to beau­ti­ful­ly dec­o­rate the room. They begin to run around the shops, buy­ing up every­thing that comes their way. You can dec­o­rate the room with:

  • bal­loons;
  • light fab­ric stretched under the ceil­ing;
  • paper pom-poms;
  • con­grat­u­la­tions stretch marks;
  • cor­ru­gat­ed paper crafts and oth­er dec­o­ra­tive items.

When choos­ing the appro­pri­ate option, it should be tak­en into account that the child will want to try these items with his hands or even by mouth, so it is impor­tant to remem­ber safe­ty pre­cau­tions. When dec­o­rat­ing a room, do not use small and sharp objects that can injure the baby. In this case, it is bet­ter to choose large bright dec­o­ra­tions and hang them high­er, out of reach of the crumbs.

Using volu­mi­nous toys or pom­poms, you should secure­ly fas­ten them to the sur­face so that they do not acci­den­tal­ly fall and fright­en the child. Do not buy cheap plas­tic prod­ucts.

In addi­tion to an unpleas­ant char­ac­ter­is­tic odor, they can be tox­ic, lead­ing to poi­son­ing or aller­gies.

Usu­al­ly, any chil­dren’s event is not com­plete with­out ight­less bal­loons. They will be a great option for dec­o­rat­ing the whole house or just a chil­dren’s room. When pur­chas­ing them, it is bet­ter to give pref­er­ence to high-qual­i­ty and strong prod­ucts, oth­er­wise a burst­ing ball may fright­en the baby. This bright attribute can be hung:

  • one ball;
  • groups;
  • in a chaot­ic man­ner;
  • in the form of inter­est­ing com­po­si­tions;
  • in the form of fig­ures or num­bers;
  • in the form of an arch, columns.

Dense small mod­els can sim­ply be scat­tered around the room in the form of a mul­ti-col­ored car­pet. The lit­tle princess will run over it with plea­sure. Heli­um bal­loons look very nice under the ceil­ing. Rib­bons or shiny threads going down will com­ple­ment the dec­o­ra­tion. In addi­tion, the birth­day girl her­self can play with such rib­bons, pulling them and releas­ing the bal­loon up. Such sim­ple fun will cause a lot of pos­i­tive emo­tions in a lit­tle girl.

For a 1 year old girl’s birth­day, it is bet­ter to dec­o­rate the room with balls of del­i­cate pas­tel shades. Their col­or can be com­bined with inte­ri­or items, uphol­stery. It is impor­tant not to over­do it with rich and flashy col­ors, oth­er­wise such bright shades can irri­tate the baby. For a girl, soft pink or peach-col­ored prod­ucts will be prefer­able.

When choos­ing a mono­chro­mat­ic range, it is advis­able to dilute it with con­trast­ing acces­sories and dec­o­ra­tive com­po­nents in the form of hearts, angels, but­ter­flies or flors.

room decoration

Many par­ents pre­fer to dec­o­rate the chil­dren’s room in secret from the kids, so that when they wake up in the morn­ing, the child will imme­di­ate­ly see the dec­o­rat­ed room. Even though the baby is still quite small, she will under­stand that today is a spe­cial day for her. Dec­o­rat­ing a chil­dren’s room with bal­loons will instant­ly trans­form the room, high­light indi­vid­ual zones.

Since the child is 1 year old, this fig­ure should be present in the decor. It can be made from card­board, dec­o­rat­ed with soft pink cor­ru­gat­ed ros­es, or made from col­ored paper, foil. You can also use one or more bal­loons for this pur­pose, mak­ing a fig­ure in the form of a unit. Inside the bal­loons, you can put notes with wish­es, small toys, pour con­fet­ti.

To com­ple­ment the dec­o­ra­tion of the nurs­ery will help:

  • birth­day wish book
  • sta­diome­ter with notes;
  • hung pho­tos of the baby for the whole past year.

Table set­ting for chil­dren also deserves atten­tion. You can dec­o­rate it with bou­quets of flors, bows on cut­lery, bright straws for cock­tails. It is usu­al­ly not cus­tom­ary to have noisy par­ties on the first birth­day of a child. It is enough to make a light buf­fet, pre­pare sets, cut fruit. The event should not be long so as not to affect the baby’s reg­i­men.

How to make an arch for a year?

If bal­loons are used in the design, it is advis­able to build a beau­ti­ful arch from them. This can be done with your own hands or resort to the help of design­ers. For the inde­pen­dent con­struc­tion of the arch for the girl’s birth­day, you need to pre­pare mate­ri­als and tools in the form of:

  • bal­loons;
  • pump;
  • strong fish­ing line and thread, wire or hose.

For the room, small balls up to 25 cm are more suit­able. If the arch will be made at the entrance to the house, you can pick up prod­ucts of a larg­er size, from 30 cm. Their num­ber depends on the type of arch and its shape. When con­struct­ing an arch for a child for a year, you need the fol­low­ing.

  1. Make the basis for the future design.
  2. Fix the base.
  3. Inflate bal­loons with heli­um or just air.
  4. Tie them to the base.

Balloon Shape Ideas

From inflat­ed bal­loons of var­i­ous shapes, you can make orig­i­nal fig­ures, rang­ing from the sim­plest crafts to com­plex com­po­si­tions. Latex mod­els are con­sid­ered the most com­mon option for aero design. Work­ing with such mate­r­i­al is not so dif­fi­cult:

  • you need to come up with an idea and pick up a sketch;
  • study the instruc­tions;
  • inflate bal­loons;
  • start con­nect­ing them in series.

It is bet­ter to inflate long bal­loons with a spe­cial pump. It is nec­es­sary to leave a lit­tle space with­out air for the sub­se­quent twist­ing of the prod­uct and the for­ma­tion of fig­ures.

You can dec­o­rate a chil­dren’s hol­i­day with fig­ures from your favorite car­toons, fig­ures of ani­mals or insects, flors.

Beautiful examples

By choos­ing bal­loons as a birth­day room dec­o­ra­tion for a girl, you can quick­ly turn the room into a fairy­tale cas­tle. The lit­tle princess will meet her favorite heroes, fairy-tale char­ac­ters there.

Bal­loons tied to the backs of chairs or to the legs of tables will allow you to high­light the chil­dren’s area for the cel­e­bra­tion.

A pho­to zone of soft pink bal­loons will be the per­fect place for a pho­to of a birth­day girl.
