First Birthday Party Ideas II

My first post of the year is always about the best ‘first’ there is, the First Birthday. A simple activity, fun food and a great smash cake are usually enough to make a birthday enjoyable for young party guests. Set the tone with a fun invite, and then seal the deal by sending your guests home with an equally appropriate party favor.

Saddle up partner,  for a rootin’ tootin’ party!

Hello! Giddy up with Tiny Print’s Wild Bandana.
Goodbye! Order cowboy hats from your favorite spot like Oriental Trading for guests to wear during the party and take home.

First Birthday Party  DJ themeHey Mr. DJ!
Is your little man a hipster already rockin’ out to serious nursery rhymes? Let music guide the party vibe!

Hello! I am in all shades of love with this record invite from CB2. Create your own round labels and add to a LP, easily found at thrift stores.
Goodbye! How about animal crackers dressed up like boom boxes! Check out this fun idea from Fearless Flight In Thought  using  free printables from Nick Jr.

First Birthday Party  Oh The Places You'll Go themeOh The Places You’ll Go
Mark the first year milestones and inspire your little one’s future plans and aspirations with an around the world theme.

Hello! Welcome guests to fly the friendly skies with airplane ticket invites.  I made these a few years ago for an airplane party and they were a hit!
Goodbye! Check out how One Charming Party’s free printable made inflatable globes as the perfect party favor.

First Birthday Party  Whale Of A Tale themeWhale Of A Tail
If you have a water baby, celebrate with the largest aquatic mammal.

Hello! How adorable are these invites featured on Baby Lifestyles?
Goodbye! A few whale-shaped chalk in a simple container are all you need!  I found the chalk on clearance and knew they would make the perfect send-home. Duplicate the look making your own chalk from Holidays Central with a plastic mold like this from Amazon.

First Birthday Party  twin themeThings That Go Together
Celebrating with twins? It’s double the fun;  celebrate with things that go together by serving peanut butter and jelly or mac and cheese or serve up a milk and cookies bar.

Hello! Check out Tiny Prints’  Turning One Two invites.
Goodbye! How about double cherry lollipops? Find them at candy spots like Candy Nation and add a simple tag like TomKat Studio’s.

First Birthday Party  general themeGeneral
Don’t want a specific theme? There are so many fun directions to  go.

Hello! A little glittah and a single candle make the perfect invite from Little Household.
Goodbye! A container of mini pencils like these from Shop Sweet Lulu.  Decorated or plain, they are perfect.
