10 cute and creative first birthday party ideas your little one will adore


Your baby's very first birthday is approaching, and not not only turning one a big milestone in itself, it also means that you have made it through your first year of parenthood!

Where did that year go, I hear you ask (seriously; could babies not come with a pause-button?!).

First birthdays are a memorable day, and even though your tot won't remember this day in the slightest, I think most of us still like to turn it into a right celebration. And rightly so!

So get your party hats our and let these gorgeous birthday bashes inspire you! (And don't forget to send us the pics of the party after!)

1. Animal-Themed Bash

This is a perfect unisex birthday party theme, working equally well for your little girl as it would your little boy. We love the animal shaped sugar cookies given as party favors at the end!

2. A Supercool Race Car Party

I know my little boy racer would have loved this party, as I am sure all little boys (and their daddies) would. This party came complete with a "pit crew" play area, a race car decorating station, a license plate welcome sign, and even a "parking area for strollers. Cuuuute!

3. A Very Hoppy Birthday Party

Pink and perfect for a little girl's very first birthday bash, we think. The bunnies are adorbs, and you will find anything else you need to make this party perfect on Etsy.

4. A Celestial First Birthday Bash

This "twinkle twinkle little star" first birthday bash might just be our ideal party: It looks fairly simple to execute, but it has a tons of cute details. Another one that will work equally well for boys and girls!

5. A Modern Cowboys and Indians Birthday Party

Cowboys, Indians, and little boys go together like bows and arrows, and always have.

6. A Chic, Tiffany's-Inspired Party

This Breakfast at Tiffany's-inspired party is so cool we totally wouldn't mind it for our own birthday bash!

7. Cute, Camping-Inspired Party

If you can throw a summer party for your little boy, we think this camper one will go down a treat with your guests! We love how they have used a tree round as a cake stand, fun paper products and signage, and lots of yummy, camping-inspired eats. Cuteness!

8. A Parisian Red-Balloon Party

Paris is never wrong, they say, and it looks like that sentiment can stretch to birthday party themes as well. This one we think can work for both boys and girls, and you don't have to limit yourself to Paris, by the way. Pick any favourite city and there the party around it!

9. Pretty in Pink!

Little girl turning one? Make it pink. All pink. You can't go wrong with that!

10. A Colorful Birthday Parade

Circus- and parade themes are both perfect for a first birthday bash, and will no doubt yield you the cutest, most colourful photo ops! Go to town with popcorn and sweets and cute signage!
