I am planning my son's 1st for this summer. Traditionally for both sides of the family, the 1st b-day is considered a milestone and so is quite a large party. However, it is predominantly for family and the other children. We're holding a backyard party with a carnival theme. We're renting a bouncy castle, a sno-cone machine and setting up some carnival games like ring toss, fishing booth etc.

For the adults, basically we'll have lots of food and drinks.

My daughter just turned one last month....
I bought myself a new dress....It was a lot of hard work on my part to get her to 1 Year....
So i went shopping at Macy's.

For her, I ordered new diapers through my BFF's website.

Lol I was the mom that went crazy for my son's first birthday and everyone else is totally right. They don't remember. We threw a big party at the house that I decked out in Tonka truck decorations. However the one thing we did that I really liked was I made him his own special cake that he got to tear into. It's a family tradition and really fun for them.

I agree, It will just be mom, dad and grandparents with cake, food and fun. We will also take a local mini trip with the baby

we had a party where we had pizza and cake and our families came over. it's more for the parents than for the kids since they won't remember it.

Just had family and friends around. I don't do huge 1st birthdays as it's mainly for the parents to celebrate surviving the first year! The children don't remember so there's not much point.
