If it helps or makes you feel better, We planned our first birthday party almost a month after her actual birthday! That way you could space between the two big events. It worked our for us because she was walking by the party!
We rented a park shelter so that kept the space cost down, but you still have to plan for food, things to do, etc. We had a small petting zoo come out. But honestly, in more recent years we've scaled it down big time and it has been much more enjoyable for us and the kids loved it just as much : )
