Congratulations on your bundle of joy! After a blissful first month as new parents, the time has come for your family to hold your baby’s first-month celebration. Also known as a full-month celebration, this cherished tradition is all about bringing your friends and family together to celebrate the precious addition to your life. 

As new parents, however, it can be a little overwhelming to have to juggle your responsibilities with planning this significant milestone. But don’t worry — we’ve got you covered with this detailed guide on how to organise a memorable full-month celebration.

Set the date

According to tradition, your baby’s full-month celebration should be held exactly one month after their birthdate. But as the stars of the show, it’s more important for you to choose a date that best suits you and your baby. 

Try to aim for a time close to your child’s actual birthdate and a date that feels comfortable for you. However, parenthood is as unpredictable as can be, so make sure that your chosen date has enough flexibility to accommodate any unforeseen circumstances.

Decide on your guest list

To plan an eventful full-month celebration, effective guest list management is key. 

For a meaningful event like your baby’s first month, a short and simple guest list made up of your closest family and friends will keep the party nice and intimate. Plus, having a smaller number of attendees also means that you will be able to devote more time and attention to every guest.

Look for a suitable venue

When choosing the perfect venue for your baby’s celebration, you should find one that suits your style, accommodates your guest list, and fits into your budget. Other factors to consider are the location, ambience, as well as availability of child- and infant-friendly amenities. Indoor locations may also be a better choice to ensure the comfort of all attendees in Singapore’s hot and humid weather.

Plan an agenda

To ensure that your baby’s first-month event will flow smoothly, planning a party agenda will help you and your partner stay on top of things at all times. Whether you’re looking to incorporate traditional rituals like your baby’s first hair-cutting ceremony, or opting for modern cake-cutting ceremonies and photo-taking sessions, loosely outlining these activities in your agenda will help you get a clearer idea of what’s coming next. 

Of course, don’t forget to factor in breaks for feeding and rest to ensure your baby’s comfort throughout the celebration.

Plan the menu

Food is an integral part of any celebration, but trying to plan a sumptuous menu that can satisfy your guests’ tastebuds can be quite a headache. Luckily, with a professional caterer to take over all of your food woes, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the party.  

If your baby’s first-month celebration is a mid-sized event, the food servings provided by full buffet catering options may be excessive. Instead, opt for an expert catering service that offers mini-buffet catering options to reduce food wastage.
