To be honest I went all out for my Daughters first and as she gets older I don't know why. What I mean is as long as you have pictures with a cake and presents they cant remember. I spent hundreds of dollars every year and if I could do it over I wouldn't of gone all out till she was old enough to remember. She will be 10 this year and every year it gets more and more expensive. I wish I would have saved the money when she was young. Plus Iv always had the big birthdays so now I feel I should keep it up. Just remember no matter what you do the cake and the boxes the presents come in will be the highlight of your child's day. Good Luck!

i planned my best friends daughters 1st and we did a sesame street theme. i googled how to make elmo cupcakes and visors, we told everyone to wrap their gifts in garbage bags and placed them all around a silver trash can like oscar the grouch, cookie bean bag toss for cookie monster and letters and number decorations all over the house and yard as a educational scavenger hunt. if your interested in this idea and want more in depth details just message me and ill send you the links i have.

My son is 2, for his 1st and 2nd birthday I ordered his decorations from birthdayexpress.com. I love their website because it has matching decorations, pinatas, personalized banners, party favors and more. I agree with the other moms, you should pick according to your son's interest. For my son's 1st birthday he hadn't started watching tv yet therefore he didn't really have a preference, I choice a blue and green #1 theme to celebrate the fact that he was turning one. By his 2nd birthday he was really into baseball so we did a baseball themed party. Hope that helped.

Any tv shows he likes?? You could do a cake theme with a character/toy he likes.. and get colored balloons to match.. and some grab bags with related items

We did a contructions vehicle themed party, that said "I Dig being 1". I have also seen Rubber Duckies and Blue Bears. I think that it's really up to what your son is interested in at the time of the party. I took a cue from my son for all of his party themes and he just turned 4, each year is very memerable to him and he can tell you each theme that he had. I suggest that you make or get a bakery to make him his own personal smach cake, so he has his own little cake to eat and explore. It does get a little messy, but they really enjoy it.
