  • I did a single layer cake (white) for DS then a normal cake for the rest of us. We stripped him down to a diaper and put the cake on his tray in his highchair and let him go at it. he really didnt eat all that much of it but he did mash it pretty good. We gave him a toddler bed and a couple toys and his grandma got him a car he could ride on that he loved. We didnt really do a theme or anything, just got the whole family together for it and had a nice dinner and cake.

  • We had a smash cake for baby and then a cake for the guests. The decorations on both cakes were the same and fit the theme of the party. My daughter's first birthday was Tinkerbelle (she looked like her), my oldest son had a nautical theme, and my youngest son had balloons.

  • We had a My Little Pony theme (girl of course) and 2 cakes, a big decorated cake and then a little round one for her. She wanted nothing to do with it. She's never had sweets and I guess she doesn't like her hands to get dirty! lol Toys . . . hmmm, she got lots of age appropriate toys, a musical chair, a pretty carebear (stays in box), a beautiful barbie (stays in box) and some my little ponies that will stay in the closet until she gets older. She got lots of clothes from grandma and some gift certificates. We bought her a potty with the gift cert. and some new straw sippy cups.

  • we did a princess theme and everything was pink. we had the cake made at wal-mart and it had a little tiara and wand on it. also because it was her 1st b-day we got a free little cake just for her. she pretty much only got clothes.
