What about a birthday wishes video with the best moments captured in a year?

It is an exciting way to sum up the child's entire year with his (or her) best memories on their 1st birthday. You can start by collecting the snapshots and the video clips of the moments you have shared with them and compile them into a nice video. Add personalized messages in the video along with a song that would be very close to both you and the child. It will make a memorable present to be played on the evening of the birthday party🎉.

Mashup happy birthday song!

If you can't be there in person for their birthday, your happy birthday video can be there for you 😁. Sing them a birthday song and also ask others to do so. Mashup the entire collection in a single video and play or stream it online. It is going to be a happening video showcasing your creativity at its best.

A special interview video!

You can record a heartwarming video of you speaking with the child and recording the actions and responses. It can be repeated by the rest of your family and friends over the entire year and can be transformed into a collage video. When this is played at the party, it will light up the whole environment.🥳

Send birthday party invites!

You can have all your close ones invited to the party just by sending an easy and fun to produce digital invite. Exclusively reach out to them using social media and add the party's date, time, and location. Don't forget to add an awesome photo along with it. Spice up the entire process by choosing an imaginative invitation template that gels well with the party's theme. If you want to throw a virtual party, share the Zoom link and its details for more fun and frolic.

Best birthday party recap for a memory!

If your camera and phone are overstocked with pictures, it’s time to use and turn them into the first birthday presents for the child. Relive their infancy with an exciting video album and share it with everyone who could not attend the party.
