It’s finally time to celebrate your baby’s first year of life!

Whether you want a fun-filled day full of activities, or a classy event with the best delicacies, we hope our recommendations will give you some ideas to plan your event!

Get this first birthday outfit from Canvas Avenue for S$21.



1. Art jam on t-shirts and tote bags at The Noteway Art Studio.

 

If you have been sitting around chatting and eating from the buffet table at one too many parties, The Noteway Art Studio offers your guests the unique experience of painting on t-shirts and tote bags. It's sure to entertain little ones (and keep them out of your hair for at least a good hour), and provides a novel experience for artsy adults.

Price: Packages start from S$999 for a 4 hour kids birthday party with 15 kids.

Address: 29 Tai Seng Avenue #06-09, Natural Cool Lifestyle Hub, Singapore 534119

4. Organize a budget-friendly gathering at your neighbourhood RC.

An unexpected location that you may not have considered, but your neighbourhood residents’ center has space, and air conditioning, so why not?

A large green space that is limited only by your creativity! Cafe Melba promises good food, a fun time, and a bouncy castle that is up every day from 3 - 8pm.

6. Throw a lavish party at The Fullerton Bay Hotel.

If you’ve got the budget (or perhaps a very generous sponsor who can't wait to spoil their first grandchild with a swanky party), The Lantern at The Fullerton Bay Hotel promises to make your baby’s party an unforgettable event.

Why not have a staycation afterwards to prolong the festivities?

Price: Call to enquire.

Address: The Fullerton Bay Hotel (80 Collyer Quay, Singapore 049326)

9. What are friends for? Borrow a condo function room.

Friends in need are friends indeed. If you have a close-enough friend or relative who lives in a condominium, there’s no reason to hesitate asking them for a favour!

Price: A bottle of wine for your friend.

Address: Wherever your friend stays!



 

10. Rent a yacht!

It’s not the cheapest option, but function rooms and birthday packages don’t come cheap either, so don’t dismiss renting a yacht just yet.

A novel experience for parents and in laws, and an eye-opener for younger kids, and of course, a chill time for you and your spouse. Who says a first birthday party has to be held on land?

Price: Starts from S$1000 for 4 hours for 10 guests.

Address: The sea.

11. Have a family meal at your favourite restaurant.

The point of a party is to commemorate this special milestone in your baby’s life, with those that are dearest to her. Not much else will matter to a one-year old, except being surrounded by those that love her the most.

Have a family meal with immediate family members, over good food and good conversation.

We recommend Yan at National Gallery, and Hararu Izakaya (Halal-certified).

 

Don’t Stress!

Planning an event can be exhausting, don’t forget to ask for help where you need it. Most importantly, celebrate your little one is ONE! Yay!
