First birthdays are super special—even if your little one won’t remember it. This is a special time to gather relatives and friends to celebrate the first of many birthdays that your child will have. You want to start off on the right foot and throw them a memorable party. It can be memorable for you and your partner, at least. To mark the occasion, you’ve probably picked a special outfit for your little one. You want to be able to pull out photos though and instantly recognize your baby’s first birthday. If you get a banner, you’ll be able to remember it and place photos of relatives. It’ll make a great backdrop for photos and doesn’t take much more to set up.
We rounded up the best baby’s first birthday banners for you. We’ve got one option for boys, one for girls and a gender-neutral option that’ll tug on your heartstrings. Two of our picks come pre-assembled, while the other pick does require some work, but it’ll be so cute when it’s set up that you won’t mind that you spent time. Two of the banners also come with a birthday hat or crown and a cake topper, so all of your shopping will be done in one order.
