    Default First birthdays

    What did you do for your little ones first birthday? The big shibang or just a small quiet celebration?

    Small celebration. A trip to the zoo with cake and picnic for lunch. About 12 people there all up. The majority of our family live interstate so that made it easier to keep it small, plus we just had our absolute closest friends. DS had the time of his life. Perfect day for us!

    Nothing special. I don't see the point when they are too little to remember and enjoy it anyway.

    DD1, her dad and I had just separated the week before so it was just a cake at my grandads house with my mum, my sister and my grandad. The only gifts she got were from them. She went to her dad the following weekend though and him and his girlfriend threw a massive party and spoilt her rotten.

    Dd2 we didn't do anything for either really. We had our engagement party on her birthday so had a cake for her early on in the afternoon with close family and friends. Her second birthday is on Sunday and it's going to be very low key as well.

    We did a BBQ with family and friends, there was only 1 other child so quite small.

    ETA we also did a time capsule thing, everyone at the party wrote a letter to him. He can open them at his 18th or 21st. Some are funny,some are serious. Some state facts.eg price or milk and petrol etc it will be interesting to see who he still knows by then.

    We had a big pirate party in the local park, 40 adults and 10 kids, I went overboard but it was such a great day! I hate it when people say they are too little they won't remember! Does that mean we cancel Xmas and anything else they won't remember! We have hundreds of photos and videos of him with everyone who loves him plus DH and I have the best memories of that day when our little boy turned 1!

    We had a Teddy bears picnic at our local park. About 40 family and friends, BBQ, salads, cake and cupcakes, balloons etc. It was lots of fun! Think we'll do something really small for her 2nd.
