What are good themes for a 1st birthday for a girl?

My baby will be 1 years old in august ( i like to plan ahead)!

I have a few ideas...but wonder if they are too much? Birthdays are a big deal in the family.

Royal princess party....all the little girls can wear princess dresses.
Minney Mouse disneyland
Sesame Street party... More Elmo
Barney party...
Just ideas in a nutshell...i have more ideas for each theme but I would like others opinions...

What did you do?

  • DD's birthday is two weeks before chirstmas so her first party was a HUGE christmas party for neighbors and friends. Id do something a bit more low key and do a theme for later years

  • I went with an overall butterfly . I made a large butterfly cake and put that on top of a 16 in round cake and we did a potluck lunch at the park. We are broke and again this year it will be at a park with a cake that I make at home and we will invite some family and friends and again this year we will ask for NO gifts.

    The recession has hit our friends and family hard so we have asked for NO gifts at her Birthday b/c she has all that she needs and we have a little place.

  • I did a Polka Dot Safari theme for DS, but I think a polka dot theme would be great !

  • i had no theme for her first birthday. the theme was just balloons and cake. it was so low key that this year when she was 2 she had a theme and it was so much better. why not a luau theme. its august. do you have alot of kids coming? and have little events like balloon toss for the kids ect. grass skirts. can dress up little hula princess. my dd is born in march so not much can do . but she will have plenty of parties with themes. anything you do will be great. its about her and not the theme. just have fun.
