First Birthday for a Girl

First birthday party ideas for a girl:

first birthday for a girlIt’s time to go extremely mushy so prepare to taste a double shot of cuteness when organizing a baby girl’s first birthday party. There are so many ideas that it’s hard to decide which one will bring the best smile on your little princess. Although some parents decide to skip first celebration with a small gathering considering their child too small for birthday parties on the other side however, some of them are making pure art out of the actual party, pleasing their little wonder and guests with masterpiece theme-decorations looking as they were just taken out of a fairy tale.

Minnie Mouse loves first birthday parties

Yes she does! Minnie is one of the jolliest hosts that you can join forces with to set an adorable first birthday party. The Minnie Mouse theme is very flexible inviting you to a creative session around the cutest girl mouse. A pink, “Minnie dot ted” wallpaper will change the atmosphere immediately along with some styling items like banners, pompoms, matching plates and glasses giving an inspirational flavor to the entire background. Pale pink curtains and tablecloths are also good accessories perfectly framing the matching Minnie Mouse cupcakes and raspberry drinks.

Go underwater with Little Mermaid

Little Mermaid is another fairy tale character that loves birthday parties, she is a skillful guide to the underwater world where she enchanters all the aquatic creatures with her talented voice. This is a lovely theme for a summer first birthday party. Setting up for an outdoor party is much more authentic so you can use the aqua props (shells, sea stars, fish) outside in the garden or by the pool. Ariel will be happy to feature the invitations and the cake of course.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

How about a star birthday party for your own little star. With this theme a ceiling full of pale pink and pale yellow stars will take your guests out in the clouds where everything glows. Pepper up the atmosphere with some star balloons and banners and garnish the table with cookies and milk based drinks that are fitting the theme perfectly. Stars are also good friends for playing games. For example Star Twister is a nice idea that can be adapted for little kids.

Festival of colors for your little girl

Rainbow themed first birthday parties are nice ideas because kids love colors. Besides rainbow cakes and drinks you can launch a nice call for your guests, written right on the invitation to come dressed in their favorite color of the rainbow. Be careful with your decorations as the room will be already splashed by your colorful guests. Some wool fluffy clouds are more glamorous plus some flower bouquets will go better with the lively attendance.

Dancing ballerina

Who knows, maybe one day she will be a ballerina, until then, a themed birthday party is the perfect substitute. First of all little girls are adorable in their cute fluffy tutu so why not use this occasion to give your daughter her first tutu. This theme requires large amounts of tulle but don’t worry because it’s not very expensive. Use the tulle to decorate the room, the table and most importantly use it to create a personalized tutu for the little ballerina. Feather pompom would be great for a glamorous scenery but if you can’t find some, normal pompoms are perfectly fine. Alternate colors between pink and white so if you go for pink decorations the food goes with white and vice versa so this way everything will be balanced.

First Birthday Party Ideas for a Boy:

What an exciting time is the first birthday for your little boy! You want it to be a very special and unique party that everyone will remember. There are so many themes you can choose from for the little prince’s birthday.

Thomas the Train

Most little ones, boys and girls alike, love Thomas the Train. Thomas is a British cartoon that is all about the adventures Thomas and his friends on the Island of Sodor. A birthday party can be easily themed around Thomas. If you are adventurous, you can bake and decorate your own train to look like Thomas, or your toddler’s favorite of the trains on Sodor. You can always order the train cake from a bakery. Don’t forget an extra smaller cake for the birthday boy to dive into. Make the party room look like a train station, using cardboard to make a train engine that the children can play and/or sit in to have their pictures made.

Provide engineer hats for all of the little guests. You can make things yourself or you can find tons of party supplies for a Thomas themed party at my shop. Send home little Thomas bags with party favors suitable for toddlers.

Rainbow Birthday Party

Throw your one year old little boy a rainbow birthday party, with all of the colors of the rainbows. Bake a white cake with different colored stripes of fondant around the cake. Provide a small plastic swimming pool with the bright colored soft balls that are used in ball jumps. Little party guests will love to sit and play in the balls. They will most likely also love throwing them around, but no worries. At least they are soft. Blow up lots of bright colored balloons and attach them, along with brightly colored streamers to the accent wall behind the cake and gift table.

Circus Birthday Party

The cake will look like a big top circus tent, taking the center ring of the table. You can also have cupcakes decorated with red, white and blue and sprinkle sparkles on them so that they look somewhat like snow cones.

Take pictures of your son from 1 month old to 12 months and glue each picture on a different colored straw. Use 12 small popcorn boxes, placing the pictures in the box, and pour peanuts still in the shell around the straw to keep the pictures standing upright. On each box make a cute sign that tells the age of your son in each picture.  With large and small popcorn boxes you can fill them up with snacks and flowers. Place some pretty flowers in the large boxes to set on each side of the cake. Arrange the smaller boxes in a circle around the large boxes. Decorate a wall with background for games, hanging prizes with clothespins or thumbtacks. Prepare small boxes of animal cookies so that each little guest will have a box to take home.

These are just a few ideas for your birthday boy’s first birthday. Be creative and amazed at the wonderful party you can create on your own. Have a blast with your party.
