1st birthday theme??

Ok so here's the deal my dd will be 1 in April ( I know you're thinking why plan so far ahead, well I worry about things that will happen 3 years from, and she is our only child so far and the first grand-child on both sides! So far we don't know of a good theme and I'm open to any suggestions/ideas!

  • For My DD 1st birthday we did a cupcake theme. I found really cute invites shaped like cupcakes online. And I made cupcakes instead of doing a cake , and the have those really cool cupcake holders too. ( made by WILTON , google it ) I made great big colorful cupcakes out of poster board to hang on the walls and even found cupcake balloons. It was really cool !!!! She loved it .

  • My son's 1st birthday is Dec 4th and we are doing a Backyardigan theme. That show was the only thing that would calm him down when he was teething hard core and he still loves it. The kid even laughs at the little jokes like he knows what they are saying! And it's really easy cause I'm only getting a few actual Backyardigan things and the rest I'm just buying things that are the same colors as the's a lot cheaper. And with Christmas coming so soon, we could save all the money we can.

    What is your child into? Favorite shows? You could always do just a general "Baby's 1st Birthday" theme. Check your local party store for ideas.

    Good luck!
