I just had my son's birthday party on the 24th and we had the theme of a Teddy Bear picnic! We went to crafts store and bought cookie cutters in the shape of a teddy bear head, decorated sugar cookies that way and we also had a cake of a teddy bear that he destroyed! We had family and friends over and him and the other babies played with their toys! Instead of treat bags we gave the kids a little teddy bear!

A friend of mine suggested that we use a baby pool and fill it with plastic balls (like in the ball pit at mcdonalds playland). You can find bags of the plastic balls at walmart usually! It isn't much but something that even a little bigger kids can enjoy.

my daughter just turned 1 on the 12th and we just did a small get together with family and other familiar faces. you dont wanna overwhelm him too much he may get shy! Dinner consisted of her favorites hot dogs (brats & burgers for the grown ups), mac n' cheese, and rice. I don't think the first birthday has to be too extravagant. (they won't remember anyways ;-) ) the best part is watching then tear through their first cake so our daughter got a cake of her own to play in (mostly for pics!)

My son is turning one one tuesday and I was gonna have his party at Gymboree but it costs like 300 bucks! So I decided to save that for next year since most of the kids I would invite can't participate. So I think we are just gonna give him a cake and sing happy birthday. I will take a picture or two for his baby book just so he will have one of his 1st birthday. If you do decide to throw a party for him just remember that the party is mostly for the adults because he won't remember a thing. lol

Hiya, we're holding a themed party for out son on the Saturday, his birthday is Sunday 31st.
It's just a cute theme out of a bookelt from www.firstbirthdays.co.uk , and there's really cute items in there. It's a lil tea party from 12-2pm for him and his cousins and a few friends from daycare if they can make it. He can have a rest then, and then family can come over 3pm till whenever they want to leave. But I'll be sticking to his usual routine then and only his tea party will be catered for. The family can pic at whatever and have snacks I'll provide for them later, as I'm getting my son's party food catered for himespecially.
I hope your son has a really fab day Cierra.

My son turned 1 on the 15th, and we'll be having a party for him at Gymboree on Saturday. I figured it's all about him, so it'll be him and our family and friends' younger children 5 and under. It's simple, low key enough, and should be a lot of fun for the kids! Hopefully.... we'll see! =)

We usually keep it low key as well with only close family and friends...people that my kids are familiar with. Since we are celabrating my twins 1st birthday and my other sons 2nd birthday together I will be making 2 small cakes for my twins to make a mess of in their high chairs and a larger one for my 2 year old and the rest of us to eat. And we are just gonna have pizza. I told everyone not to come until 3 or 4 so naptime will be over.

We are keeping it low key and having some family and friends over for an early dinner and some cake.My daughter won't remember it anyway so I don't see the point in wasting the money on something extravagant...I'll save the big parties for her sweet 16, graduation, wedding, and baby shower.
