First Birthday Party Themes III

My first post of the year is always about the best ‘first’ there is, the First Birthday party.

A simple activity, fun food and a great smash cake are usually enough to make it enjoyable for young party guests.  Get the party started with a fun invite, and then seal the deal by sending guests home with an equally appropriate party favor.  Here are 6 of my favorite themes…

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Did you sing this song to your belly while you were pregnant? I know I did and it makes the sweetest theme for your little one.

Hello! Check out Tiny Prints’ Birthday Stars to set the party scene

Goodbye! How pretty are these sparkly wands personalized with sweet touches by 6th Street Design School?

What Does The Fox Say?

I’m sorry…that song is always stuck in my head but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t make an awesome party theme!

Hello! Head out to Paper Source (we have one in Bellevue and University Village) for the supplies and DIY your own adorable invite thanks to Oleander + Palm.

Goodbye! Purchase muslin bags (also at Paper Source), iron on your own design like these featured on The Hostess Blog, then fill with your own goodies like fox cookies.

Let’s Flamingle!

From the fox to flamingoes…the pink is perfect for your little girly girl and such a cheery theme, I want to throw a flamingo party!

Hello! Oh yes, Oh Goodie Designs + Events tri-fold invitation is perfect and I love the colors.

Goodbye! Their personalized party blowers will keep the party going long after everyone leaves.
