    Default Party Favours for 1st birthday party.. needed or not?

    Sorry if this question has been done many times but I am so confused about this!

    I am planning my daughters first birthday party (its not until January next year but I am heading to Sydney and would like to purchase most of my non perishable supplies then as we live rural) and most of the kids will be under 2.

    Do I need party favours for the babies? And if so what do I give them?

    It will be mostly family and close friends who have traveled to come to the party.

    Party will be held outside around mid morning so will roll into lunch and we will be catering all food and drinks.

    We will be having a lolly bar so most of the adults will be set, cake, cupcakes, oreo pops etc which they can fill a noodle box up with.

    We are planning on having a loosely themed Teddy Bears Picnic party.

    Not needed at all. But I find them really fun to make . For my sons 1st I bought packs of 10 playgro bath toys. Then packaged two per child with a $1 book from big w and a Freddo and smarties. Wrapped it in cellophane and ribbon to match the colours. They probably cost $4 each. We only had 12 kids thoigh.

    Unless you're having a lot of older kids I wouldn't bother I only did them for the first time at DDs 4th birthday. Especially if you're doing a lolly buffet too! That'd be plenty

    My 1 yo loves balloons on strings or sticks so that may be an option.

    I has fun doing then for that age but it's definitely not needed! We had bags with a mini sticker book, mini reading book, rusk stick, small play dough and hair clips for the girls.

    For my DS' first birthday I did a party bag. Most of the kids were similar age and I put in homemade play dough, home made finger paint, bubbles, a small book and a bath toy as well as a rafferty's muesli bar

    I had a little noodle box (decorated for the theme) and inside was a finger puppet (comes in packs of 10 from Ikea), some little Heinz Little Kids snacks and a party blower horn.

    Other parties that I have been to have had Sipahh straws, little boxes of sultanas, other noisemaker toys.

    I don't think they are a necessity, but if you feel so inclined, you can get cool age-appropriate things for them!

    We bought a heap of those bubble wands from Kmart - they're only $1 each & even the older kids loved bubbles

    I had my DD first birthday party yesterday. For the babies I put rusks and some little custard tin in their bags. All the mums loved the idea
