    Subbing. DS is 9 months and I'm sure the next 3 will pass like lightning!

    We did a barnyard theme for DS 1st birthday a few months ago. I got the invites from esty, ordered cups, plates and decorations online and had a barnyard 'number 1' cake made. I did my own foil helium balloons (tractor, pig, cow etc.) with a helium kit from spotlight. I hired a kids trestle table (a trestle table with the legs sawn off) and some kids sized chairs from a local party supply place from the local paper. We also splashed out and had a petting zoo with rabbits, guinea pigs, sheep, goats and a kid. Everyone had a ball.

    We went all out for this birthday but won't be doing something like this every year. Next one may be when he's 5

    No theme. Plates and cups etc. were just number 1, and I just made whatever cake I fancied and figured I could pull off at the time. No need to make it a theme.

    No, we didn't do a theme as such. I did a blue number 1 cake for DS and then had blue and green napkins/tablecloths and banner with whales on it.

    I didn't. Do 12 month olds really have interests that require themes? lol I did themes once they got 3 or 4 but now they are primary aged themed parties are becoming uncool

    Kids parties have got so out of control!

    Your little one will be vying for a fist full of cake, a mouthful of wrapping paper and revelling in all the attention - no theme required!
    Save your brainpower and pennies for when your little one develops real interests and stick with something easy and colourful.
    I've always considered the first birthday as much of a milestone for the child as it is for the parents. For that reason, keep it simple and enjoy this very special day for what it is.

    I guess we had themes but didn't go OTT. DD was obsessed with ducks, so we had a duck on the invite and a duck cake. DS loves Giggle & Hoot so we had Hoot invites, bunting, candle and cupcake holders.
