First Birthday Party Ideas
Posted by Amy Heinz
It turns out my baby is officially no longer a baby. “Pink” turned 2 last week. For some reason I was obsessed with the idea of planning a ladybug party. The thing is, I’m not all that crafty. (Pinterest gives me major anxiety!) Oh, I’ve got big ideas, but I know that when it comes down to reality, I have to keep it simple. So I did. And it the party turned out to be the perfect way to celebrate my sweet little ladybug.
If I could do these things, just about anybody can. Really.

With the birth of my son Hayden 9 months ago, the girls officially became outnumbered in our house. Sugar and spice and everything nice now receives a very healthy dose of puppy dog tails and slimy snails, and it really doesn’t help that my daughter loves bugs just as much as her brother! This past weekend we spent a lot of time outside digging in the garden and came across plenty of creepy crawlie bugs, and the kids couldn’t have been more in heaven. Son inspired by Spring and all that is buggy about the season, and all the time we’ll be spending outdoors, here are 20 bug inspired handmade items, crafts and even snacks, perfect for baby and toddler!

It’s finally the season for being outdoors! From barbecues and picnics to bonfires and movie nights, there are so many amazing things to enjoy with the entire family. When my daughter turned two, we threw her a Backyard Movie Night Birthday Party. She loves movies, hot dogs, and popcorn, so we thought it would be her dream come true! The party was surprisingly easy to plan. We even made the movie screen ourselves! Click through to see all of the fun details…

I always get excited when Casey is planning a party because I know the results will be amazing. The celebration she put together for her son Asher’s first birthday is no exception. With a subtle circus theme and a dose of color, it’s a great example of how to throw a stylish party without spending too much time or money and focusing on what’s most important – the birthday kid of course!

Sometimes our most outrageous ideas turn into the most awesome plans. While pregnant, Darci of The Good Life Blog, had a fun idea for her son’s first birthday. She managed to host a vintage-themed fiesta (Spanish for “party”) that was child friendly and in good taste. Never mind the fact that this isn’t a typical first birthday party theme, she executed everything perfectly. From the décor, favors, and the food — wait until you see what she did with the food, everything was muy bueno! Click through for great party inspiration that will have you saying “olé”!
Great take away points from this party include going with a fun theme that you enjoy, even though it may not have been done before. Though a “one” theme is popular, how about trying “un” in French or “ein” in German, for a fun spin? Don’t worry, there isn’t any one way to go about it.
