I assume they will be taking pictures and/or video? If so, they should make the party something that will look good on film since the little one won't even remember the party, and like you said, it is more for the older ones. What about balloons or even a pretty large colorful ball? They are so bright and entertaining for the baby. Also, let him dig in to the cake or his share and let him get messy. It will be fun for him and make excellant pictures. lol Also, you could help him rip open his gifts and that would be entertainment as well.

With my children and GKs, we made the 1st birthday party simple unless you are having some older children there. The baby won't remember all the money and time spent planning and having the party. Babies are pretty easy to entertain and made to feel special. I hope this helps.
