  • Keep it simple too much will overstimulate ur child creating a recipie for disaster such as tantrums/meltdowns. Have few toddlers there but keep it limited to just a few no need to go all out & have 10 kids that will also be a lot to handle at 1 yo. A good theme is balls so u could get a bunch of beach balls, ballpit balls, etc. & spread them about so ppl can play w/ them plus toddlers love them too. They also have very cheap bouncy rooms now & come in all kinds of sizes that would be fun for ur child & any other kids there too plus u can keep it afterwards (much cheaper then renting anything!). We just did a sm get together w/ 8 adults & 2 kids in addition to my DD. We took our own time ordered pizza, just put up a couple of decorations (Dollar Tree is real cheap) & had a great time. Hope ur's goes equally as great as ours did :) Have fun!
