I need some great first birthday party ideas and some adorable first birthday party attire for a little boy. Any suggestions? I am a recent follower, but a huge fan! Thanks! -Emilie
Congratulations on the upcoming first birthday for your little guy! I’m sure you realize most one year-olds need nothing more than a lick of cupcake frosting and an empty box to play with, but I adore kid parties and think they can be a lot of fun for everyone gathered to share in the occasion. I hope some of these ideas help you plan a fun and memorable party for you all. -Christina
When my son turned one, I decided to build a theme around a single color: in our case it was “red” because we had loads of red toys, balls and stuffed animals which cut down on the need to buy very much. The party favors included homemade red play dough and if I had known about Chase Dreams or Lil Scribblers, I would have definitely asked them to make me a special order of their recycled crayon favors in red.
For even more cool boy party ideas, check out the amazing printable party decor from Paper & Cake. With just some color ink in the printer and card stock, you can have great quality party decorations for little money. You’ll find themes like race car , construction and outer space, though I especially love their Sail Away nautical themed kids party printables which would be perfect for a summer birthday. A crisp white shirt and the adorable printable sailor’s hat, and he’d be all set.
CMP go-to blog for great craft ideas, Make and Takes, recently featured cute birthday party themes. Some are definitely geared for the older child, but this Building Block party is super adorable and age appropriate.
