Of course, 1st Birthday parties have got to be my favourite, your baby may not remember it but as parents, we love nothing more than celebrating every little milestone and after making it through all the sleepless nights and nappy changes, there’s nothing quite like a celebration of all the special firsts!

First Birthday Party Theme ideas

Boho Rainbows

One of the most popular themes we’ve seen trending for both girls’ and boys’ first birthday parties would have to be boho rainbows! Think muted tones in pinks, apricot and beige or pale blues, brown and cream. This is the perfect theme to celebrate a long-awaited rainbow baby too!

Adopt A Puppy Paw-ty

What’s cuter than puppies at a party?! Why not throw your dear little one a Puppy party with little plush pups for guests to adopt.
This theme has become even trendier since the rise in popularity of the kids show ‘Bluey’ so hosting a bluey inspired puppy paw-ty is a great theme for your little ones 1st Birthday!
We have some ideas on how to put it all together below:

Sunflowers and Daisies

Bright and happy, this is what comes to mind when I think of a Sunflowers & daisies party theme. You could choose just one of these florals as the theme or, both together as they compliment each other so well!
Lots of bright white and yellow tones are needed to create this vibrant party and fresh florals are a great idea to top a cake with!

You can take a look at how we helped Mum of 2 Claire, throw a Sunflowers and Daisies Party for her daughter below!

Colour theme

Sometimes our littlest ones may not show any interest in much and we can be lost scrolling Pinterest for 1st Birthday Ideas so for this reason, a simple colour palette is all that’s needed to create a simple and gorgeous party for their very First!
Sticking to 2 or 3 complimenting colours will help reduce any overwhelm when picking out decorations and helps to tie it all together in the easiest way!
We had the pleasure of helping Mum Kate, throw a Pink and Peach themed 1st Birthday for her daughter which you can see here: https://partyora.com/a-peachy-pink-first-birthday-party/
