A baby’s first birthday is a milestone for both the little one and the parents. This day is a reminder of the fact that you were blessed with your sweet baby exactly a year ago and also the million things that have happened and changed in your life ever since (mostly good, of course!). So many new and wonderful things will happen in your baby’s life now – like being introduced to new foods and reaching new developmental stages (both physical and psychological). Therefore, this day deserves to be amazing, filled with memories that you would cherish once your tiny baby is not so tiny anymore.
So, to make this very special day even more fun and memorable, we have for you 8 kickass themes for your baby’s first ever birthday.
1. An animal themed birthday party
SO.FUN. For this, you need all things animal shaped – cake, chocolates, cookies, balloons, banners, toys and even hats! You can even dress your baby in a cute, furry animal costume and see them crawl around looking oh-so-adorable.
2. A Disney themed party
I mean, who doesn’t like Disney?! There is endless opportunity for you to be creative here, starting from the cake to the cutlery. You can even pick a particular Disney character or movie and base the entire event on this character.
3. A galaxy themed party
Ornaments of the moon, the sun, planets, meteors, comets and the like against a backdrop (actual or made-up) of the night sky can really make for a unique and beautiful first birthday party theme and decoration. Again, you have a large window for using your creative energy here to make something lovely of this special day.
4. A season themed party
Fake snow for winter, beachy tans and sand, sunglasses and summer colours, raincoats and pretty umbrellas – just pick a season and go bananas with it. You can even pick or modify the location so that it goes with the theme and makes it more fun and scenic.
5. A candy and ice cream themed birthday party
Bright pinks, dreamy pastels, loud neons and all things sugary – sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? With stockings full of candy here and there, ice cream cones, frosting, and cool colour play, it will be the prettiest party.
6. A prince/princess themed party
Your baby already rules your heart, so why not make their first birthday all about this. Dress your baby like the prince/princess that he/she is to you. If you want to be really over the top, you and your partner can dress up like ‘king and queen’ or book a royal-ish kind of location for the party. Or, just decorate the venue so as to make it look like a castle. A fantasy first birthday, really.
