When choosing a theme for your baby's first birthday, simple is best. First birthday parties are really more for parents to celebrate the birth of their child rather than the child to actively get in on the birthday action. Think about throwing a weekend party for friends and family, with baby-friendly finger foods of course. Or consider taking after Hollywood mom Tori Spelling, who threw a ladybug themed first birthday luncheon for her daughter, Stella.
Here's another fun idea: Decorate a scrapbook or shoebox where guests can leave notes for your birthday baby to read when he or she is older -- maybe break it out for some embarrassing fun at the Sweet 16 party
No matter what, be sure to have a camera ready to capture the fun!
