  • Do a zoo theme or a circus theme. These are both classics and will never go out of style in pix that you display in the future...with dozens of cousins...your place will be a circus and a zoo!!! LOL Hope it is a lot of fun!!

  • Make it short and sweet they get tired and overwhelmed quickly

  • At one, I don't think they really care too much. I would cater the activities to the other older children that will be coming. The theme should be whatever your son is "in" to. (sesame street, diego, baby einstein, puppies... etc.) Have fun!!

  • We did a BIG blow out for our sons 1st birthday... I would just say make it pretty short! We did a sports theme and had balls and such for him to play with and made food that he liked at that point and he loved opening gifts!! I think as long as you do it AFTER nap time it is ALOT better!!!! Good luck and have a blast!

  • We had a big birthday for my son too. The best piece of advice I got was to plan the party for AFTER naptime. So I made sure he got put down at noon and the party started at three. But with all the people there they will start to get a little overwhelmed and fussy. Plan mainly to entertain the bigger kids. There is nothing worse for them than sitting around watching the birthday boy open 1000 gifts! I gave them their goodies bags while Adeus had present time. The one year olds don't car if 5 people show up or if 55 people do! They are just happy to see people that love them!!
