Any Ideas?

My son's 1st birthday is in one month, and I still have no idea what to do for a theme. I want to do something that everyone can get in on. For instance, my brother and his wife did a football theme for their son, and had everyone wear attire from their favorite NFL Team. I would love to do something like that. I've done internet searches to look for ideas, and nothing seems too impressive. What did you do for your kids? Any ideas I could steal?

I had a princess theme for my dd's birthday party but we didn't have anyone dress up or anything... we just had princess decorations/cake/balloons... mostly because it was one of a few options at Party City! LOL

Well, I have no good ideas as I have never really done any birthday parties for my kids and the ones that I did have were for my girls. My son cannot handle the excitement of a party. I can't think of a thing to help but here's a bump for you. GL and I hope you have fun. Happy Birthday to your son.

Does he like cars?  Race cars?  Nascar stuff.

Cowboy theme. Dress up as cowboys/cowgirls.

I had the HARDEST time deciding on a theme for my son's first birthday lol.  We were looking at pics of cakes and saw a sesame street one that I fell in love with lol so that was what his theme was.  We bought everything plates, cups, table cloth, decorations, invitations in the sesame street theme.  We found a lot of it at the dollar store.  Good luck!!!

What about picking a color like blue or green and basing everything around that color.  The balloons, the deocrations, the cake and some of the food.  Then you could have everybody where something that color.
