First Birthday party

I know this is pretty early as she isn't one until 4th January but i want to organise a really special first birthday party for our gorgeous little girl Lily-Rose

Has anyone got any ideas for an unusual theme or just ideas in general? I'll be DIY-ing most of the decorations to save money and don't want to have something generic - no princess or disney or character based theme if you know what i mean?

Ideas and inspiration would be great image also what will you all be doing for your los?

  • ajmum - have you seen firework stuff anywhere - i have looked for firework themed things and trocket themed and really found zip all!
  • Hi. Just off the top of my head, teddy bears picnic, a nursery rhyme or lots of nursery rhymes put together, farm or zoo animals. Does she have a favourite story or toy, that you could somehow make into a theme? HTH. xx
  • I already have my dd's 1st birthday planned down to the T haha obviously have far too much time on my hands!!

  • That's organisation Mrs P. Have you got a theme? xx
  • I dont want to be rude or critical at all, and your ideas sound lovely and its so nice that you want to give your little one a great birthday, its just that Ive seen a few 1st birthdays where a lot of effort has gone in, and the baby is so overwhelmed by visitor and fuss that they end us screaming and crying and leaving early! Perhaps save it for a 3rd or 4th party that they will really love?!

  • Hi. Just come across this thread. I am sure you must have started planning your son’s third birthday. If you still don’t want a commercial theme, I would recommend you to organize a soccer party for him. Ask the boys to dress up as players and the girls to dress up as cheerleaders. Buy soccer themed party supplies such as cups, plates, napkins, balloons, etc. Make cake looks special by using soccer ball pick candles. You can get these from

  • Hi,If you want to organize Birthday Party for your kid based on themes such as Princess,fairytale,to make your party more entertainingand enjoyable,then i will suggest you a company called Party Princess Productions,in Orange County,California,USA.
  • I think barnyard or jungle safari would be a great theme. You can also have a simple balloon theme party.
