Hi everyone,


I am trying to think of ideas for my daughter's first birthday. What did you end up doing for your LO's first party. It is in February so I was thinking maybe even doing something Valentine's themed since it is close to the 14th. Or I was also thinking about Veggie Tales or Mickey Mouse Clubhouse since she is into both of those shows. Also.. for food. Did you feed the adults that attended the party. I was thinking about just picking up a sub platter to make it easy.

Babe was born in May so I'm thinking the Kentucky Derby?! Why not allow the adults to dress up and have fun!

I did Alice in Wonderland theme with tea party. It was garden based-greenery and pastel flowers. It turned out super cute! I got tons of ideas on pinterest.

We did "Oh the Places You'll Go".  Everyone signed the book and I plan to give it to her when she graduates high school.  I did doctor suess themed food and I invited our close friends and family.  I did green eggs and ham for the main food...ham and cheese sliders but used a pick in each one that had a silly green poof on top and then avocado deviled eggs.  The decor was great and fun to plan.

Feed your adults!!  A sub platter definitely makes life easier and then you could make a few dips to go with or a veggie and fruit tray.  I would say go with a character that she loves or the valentine's idea.

Mickey mouse club is super cute. I have a pinterest board all ready to go. I plan on doing a unicorn party I can kind of use pretty colors nothing to fancy and have the cake/cupcakes bet the pop decor. I also found some pretty glitter balloons. I say go sub platter! easy clean up! I love to cook so id pre make ziti and salad. Kids seem to like it, parents too.

keep it simple and don't worry about going all out. Your baby isn't going to remember it. I kept mine to close friends and family . Minimal decorations and a cake smash but did splurge on a one year photo shoot.

We did a simple unicorn party for my niece and had "sparkle cake pops" unicorn popcorn and just simple finger foods and a few games. Didn't cost much and I think parents were happy with the no fuss of it all.

I like the Mickey Mouse theme. Older kids will be there too and adults im sure so food and ice cream a must. Games are fun too. For the food nachos and hot dogs are a hit.

Mine will be one soon and we are doing a winter “Onederland” theme. Will be having a chili bar and hot cocoa bar as well as cake just at our home with family. Simple.

I'm tearing up at this idea!

We did "Oh the Places You'll Go".  Everyone signed the book and I plan to give it to her when she graduates high school.  I did doctor suess themed food and I invited our close friends and family.  I did green eggs and ham for the main food...ham and cheese sliders but used a pick in each one that had a silly green poof on top and then avocado deviled eggs.  The decor was great and fun to plan.

Feed the adults for sure! 1st birthdays are a big deal and I tend to feel like they're more likely to expect something bigger. Mickey Mouse is a good choice because who knows?! They might continue to like mickey and you could use it for more than one year! ha ha. I am always looking at ways to recycle things so they don't go to waste.

For my son, we did a vintage Peter Pan them with an emphasis on the pirates. I just made a big pot of pulled pork and had chips on the side. I ordered cupcakes from a local bakery. I kept it fairly simple, but did create little cards to put them around the house with quotes from the book (Mermaid Lagoon was by the punch, etc.)

My daughter's first birthday we did a Lemonade theme, so everything was pink and yellow. We used a wooden crate and some other leftover materials and created a tiny lemonade stand, which turned out great for her photos. I just picked up some chicken salad from a local restaurant and some breads, served chips, and lemonade (of course). Again, we just kept it simple but still had fun.
