  • My children each had their own tv show they liked. My daugter loved Mickey Mouse. But we made her a princess party and her bedding Mickey Mouse. My son loves Elmo. So we did Elmo everything - cake, candy wrappers, napkins. Is there a favorite character, toy your child is interested in? Congrats on the 1st BD.

  • We used the same theme (safari) as his nursery. It made it easy since we already had so many safari items to decorate with! We had the party at a park and brought a few photo albums for everyone to look through and asked everyone to write down a memory for him and then I made a scrapbook for him that has pictures of everything and memories from all the guests. 1 year olds don't really get games so instead we tried to make things as simple as possible.

  • We were low key .. I didn't even know about themes until getting on here... I guess if there's peer pressure from people you know because they all had themes, go for it... I didn't know anyone who did. We had a cook-out at a park, made our daughter a special low-sugar cake and had a blast. I'll think about a theme when my daughter could pick her own out. Not this year (she's turning 2).
