Hi Moms! I am just curious if anyone else is starting to thinking about/plan for your baby's 1st birthday party. I have been looking online for ideas since my son was 6 months old :) I would love to know your ideas for 1st birthday parties.

Year I am sure everybody here must have started planning their child’s birthday much in advance. First birthdays are always special. Whether you want to celebrate them in a grand way or host a small family party; the thought of their little ones turning one excites every parent.

For my daughters first birthday we're having it at a medieval fair. we are big in to medieval fairs and I do medieval reenactment sometimes... so it only seemed natural and she loves putting on costumes (( like her fairy one )) so it just seemed to fit... and the state medieval/ren fair is the same time as her birthday. so we'll be spending the day at the fair... and then maybe come back home and have cake... or make it a weekend event go to the zoo friday the fair saturday and sunday have a fantasy themed cookout... the next day... but her birthday isn't till the 21st sooo plenty of time to make up our minds ^_^

In the last month I've really started to think about Ophelia's first birthday, and I've decided to go with a tea party in the garden. Canopy covered tables, tea sets at each table and finger foods. I'm even going to have a table set up for her dolls and their visitors to enjoy tea as well. I was thinking of making hats for the guests and the guest of honor :)

Evan will be 1 on 24Sept and since we call him our Monkey, we are thinking about a zoo theme and party at the zoo. We will have cupcakes with animal candies on them, and cook out at the zoo. As long as it's nice out, of course! There is also a beach at our zoo so people can swim too if they want. DH wants to keep it small but even with only family and my son's godparents, that's still 40 people to invite! I am really looking forward to it and am going to start working on the invitations so that by the end of June I will just have to paste in the date/time/place of the party. Exciting!!!!

Abby turns 1 on Sept 7 and if the weather is good, we will be having our party in our backyard. Since there will be children of various ages there and is mostly adults, we will have a BBQ. The theme will be a teddy bear picnic. I don't have a ton planned yet, but I hope it to be simple, cute and fun.

My son turns 1 on Sept 8th and we're going to have his 1st bday party on Sept 11th! I was gonna do sesame street theme but we did that for his older brother so I think Im going to keep it simple and do 1st bday theme for a boy. They have a lot of stuff for that at Party City and its all really cute. Im either going to have a cake made for his party or make one myself. I just found a cake sheet online that is for making bigger cakes but I want to try it out first so we'll see. We're going to have the party at our home for family/friends with pizza and wings! Im looking forward to it!

I haven't really began to think about her first b-day party. She is my 3rd, and we don't start planning details until a month before their b-day. SO, I'll know more in August. :)

We're going to do a safari/zoo animal party. I was thinking about actually having it @ the zoo, but my husband doesn't want to do it after work and since he's only turning 1 and won't remember...that's his line anyhow! So we'll just do something at home, probably BBQ lunch or something? My oldest is turning 4 in July and I'm really trying to think about not inviting all of HIS friends to his brothers party kinda thing...trying to keep it to kids who are closer in age for my baby, but there aren't any :( Not too sure what to do here? Derrick's friends would all be 2-4 yrs older then the baby...just doesn't seem right to invite all of them? I don't want to have a repeat of my oldest son's bday for my baby in Sept. ya know...

Austin is 8 months old and I've been planning his 1st bday party since he was 4 months old :D I'm having a Barnyard/Cowboys theme party at a farm. All the kids get a cowboy hat & bandanna upon arrival. Activities will be provided by the farm (pony rides, train rides, petting zoo, etc..) I just can't wait!

Oh my goodness.. I'm feeling behind.. Madi was born sept 24th and I haven't even thought once about a 1 year birthday party! We'll probably just have family over and do a cute little cake.. Maybe a princess theme because she is the princess of our house..:)

my son is a Sept. 3rd baby. My husband and I have been back and forth about the theme. I think we have agreed on an Elmo theme and a small BBQ with friends and family.. but being as it is as hot as we all know what in Texas, we WILL have a water slide going!!

I want to have a BBQ/pool party at the in-law's house. I want to invite my family and friends as well. My family and my husband's family really haven't met yet(we were married in the Virgin Islands with only a few pppl there) so it would be a good way to get everybody together. I don't have any themes in mind yet but I MUST make a rainbow cake!! I want to make a tiny one just for her to! :D

I'm renting a tent and tables for our back yard. It's gonna be a baseball theme and having everyone wear their favorite baseball t-shirts or jersey's. We are going to have a tailgating party, BBQ, bags, etc.. I had picked out the cake when he wasn't even born yet, call me crazy. Everyone is getting a baseball shape cookie as a favor.

I will probably have a water-bouncer thingy, monkey theme (we call him our little monkey), and LOTS of family and friends. He's our first child, my dad's first grand, and we really wanted to give everyone a chance to meet him (most of the family and friends haven't seen him yet). So, we plan on doing a very big afternoon party. He is a water baby - so there will be a lot of water activities for him to partake in and watch!

I don't exactly have a plan yet but Mason was born at the beginning of Sept so we're having his party the last weekend in August to make sure the weather is still nice enough for a cookout. Can't believe we have to start planning that soon!
