  • I'm not sure about your area, but where I live , you can hire people to dress as characters and come to your birthday party. Maybe you could find someone to be Elmo and come do a little show at your party. The kids could get his "autograph" and have their pics made with him. You could also do games with a sesame street theme (it depends on the ages of the other kids attending).

  • Something simple, at 1 there still babies and don't enjoy too much! Were all excited when our babies turn one but simple at that age is better.

  • Yeah I think babies at this age don't appreciate "big" parties. I'd say just family and close family friends, are your home or the child's grandparents home. I'd decorate with Elmo and an Elmo cake, but that's as far as I'd go with decorations. If there are older children coming you could plan a few games for them and maybe goodie bags. But this birthday is for the family...IMO...:)
