what did you do for 1st birthday party?

So I'm having over some friends for my twins first birthday
there will be a 5 month old baby, a baby their age, their 3 year old cousin and a 3 1/2 year old.

then theres going to be a 9 year old 12 year old and 14 year old and the rest are adults, around my own age (21) and a few older. all in all about 25 people including the kids

my mom made a really cute mickey mouse bean bag toss for the older kids, but basically just for the two 3 year olds... other than that i dont have any games planned

what did you guys do for your parties? should I prepare games for adults or just keep it casual and mingle, and show off pictures of my boys while the kids play???

suggestions? thanksss

  • for my daughters first birthday they were happy with the balloons and the kiddie pool in the yard. im notso sure about activities for the 12 and 14 year olds but all the younger ones will be content with simplicity.

  • If your having the party in your home the 9, 12, and 14 year old will probably be content watching TV ... just have maybe a seperate room with a couple of board games or something or just have the TV on and tell them they can order a movie or something...

  • We just had a party at my parents house. We had a tent outside and the kids played with a ball and a bean bag game. Otherwise they were busy eating, watching my daughter open presents, and having cake. We had brought our Wii game but nobody played. Everyone stayed outside and enjoyed the day.
