For a 2 year old, jungle safari theme is the best option as in this age kids are pretty familiar with animals. You can make hand- made animal face masks and give to party guests. Or you can get pre-packaged masks if you have less time. Serve animal shaped cookies and sandwiches and bake a colorful cake that perfectly represent fun jungle scene. Play some animal themed music and rhymes, you can also arrange an animal theme movie for kids. You can also dress your baby in her favorite animal costume may be cute bunny rabbit or the one she is fond of.

My son is crazy about Veggie Tales, so my husband and I are throwing a veggie tales birthday party for him. We are inviting family and close friends with their children, so we plan on having the party at a park and/or veggie-games for the kids. I've been browsing the web for veggie tales birthday ideas, surprisingly there are a lot of ideas out there. :)

I have b/g twins who love too many characters to pick a theme so i decided to go with a multi colored #1 theme. I ordered #1 mylar balloons for each of my kids and different colored balloons with matching ribbon to go with it. Also i got them big birthday cake hats that have a single candle on top. This will be for the afternoon party with my family.

For the morning party at my mil's we will have breakfast let the kids have a little cake and she is having Santa over.

I wasn't going to have any theme but found these cute bulldozer party stuff for my son's 1st. His dad works with these big trucks so the theme will tie in well for us and even going to attempt to make a bulldozer/digger cake..tough stuff!

That sounds adorable. We were going to do a farmyard theme for my daughter's upcoming 1st, but switched to cupcake theme (my 3-yr-old daughter's idea). The invites say "Our little cupcake is turning one, join us for some birthday fun." My sis-in-law is making beautiful cupcakes (baking & decorating is her hobby, lucky me). Having the party at 2 p.m. so my little ones can still get a nap in before hand. Also thought it would be easy, fun, & budget-friendly to serve finger-food snacks instead of a luncheon for 35 people. Hope your daughter has a fun & wonderful 1st birthday! Take care

We live on a farm, so I am doing a barnyard theme. I got some big mylar cow and pig balloons, cow print napkins, balloons, and cupcake papers, cow and pig sprinkles for the cupcakes, and small hay bales at the craft store to decorate the table. I'm going to serve fried chicken, mini corn on the cob, and biscuits and will make butterscotch haystacks. Babies will get cow sippy cups for favors and my sister suggested Cow Tail candy for everyone else.

I noticed birthday express has stuff you can customize with photos... dig that. But I bought a Zulily coupon for Party In A Box and I'm digging their "I'm ONE!" themes since there is once in my kid's life that I can buy that theme (and not raise eyebrows!) I'm digging their girl baby, and the rocker/angel/1 yr old theme. Deciding is the problem for me... and the guest list. Don't want to offend neighbors (but some are closer than others!)

no big theme for our son, hes too young to know what its all about, and having his birthday 24th dec means that alot of ppl are caught up with christmas stuff so we are having a picnic in local park with family and close friends, i will make a larry the lawnmower cake but will reserve "themed" parties till he is old enough to understand what a birthday party is about

We're not doing a "theme." Just bright primary colors... balloons, colorful #1 cutouts, and cutout snowflakes hanging from the ceiling (having it at home) and colorful cupcakes. I have many great ideas and didn't want to be boxed in with a "theme." Maybe when she gets older and can decide her own theme.

No theme, and no big parties...she is turning 1 and won't remember or care. This is my 3rd child, and my older two are in High School....I didn't do anything major for their first birthdays either as I have just never seen the point of throwing 'yourself' a party -dsince that is all it really is.
We will have some family and some close friends over, but that is it. I will wait until she is older for the themed parties....just like I did for the teens...

Spongebob has caught my sons attention since he was born. He sees that yellow sponge and his face lights up. We're, without a doubt, doing a Spongebob theme for his first birthday party.

My son loves eating/reading his Dr. Seuss books, so we are going with that theme. Roast "Beast" sandwiches, jello jiggler one fish two fish, devilled green eggs and cubed ham. It's been fun. More for the adults, but it should make some cute pics! Also I got him a "Thing 1" t shirt to wear!

I'm doing a pig theme, well piglets but not the one from winnie the pooh. I just love pigs so did her room in pink pigs so figured I should just do a pig party now. when she is old enough to choose she will probably choose something else.
I'm getting really excited for it even though its going to be a small party.
