  • Plan whatever day works best for your family this year. Have a little cupcake and her gift from you on the actual day. She is only one so she does not know you are delaying the party if you pick 7/2.

  • Honestly? She's one. She's not going to care when or if you do it. But, if in the future you are worried about planning around a holiday, try celebrating a half birthday...though that would be around thanksgiving/christmas. Hmm. But might be an option.

  • if u choose july 2nd, I say go ahead and just do it on July 4th instead! Nice cookout and then enjoy the fireworks.

  • The 26th.

    Is there a reason you can't have a birthday party on a Sunday?

  • My husband wants to the 25th. I did at first until I realized the day. I wouldn't mind doing the 2nd, just worried about it conflicting with other parties. But usually both families do a party on the 4th- that was the first thing I did after my daughter was born!

  • Sundays are tough. My husband has to be to work early during the week and most people will be traveling about an hour to our house. Also for my side of the family that would mean to bday parties in 1 weekend.

  • If you have friends with kids a fourth of July weekend bday party would be fun.
