Nope you don't need a theme for a first birthday party.

I don't think a theme is necessary, but it is fun and does make organising easier...
We have had Jungle, Thomas the tank engine, babushka dolls, snow leopards, woodland fairy, under the sea, dinosaurs and a high tea party.

First birthday ideas
We did a 'barnyard' or 'farmyard' theme for DS 1st birthday. It was really easy and worked really well. I had the invites designed on etsy then I just printed them myself at officeworks. I ordered themed decorations from online and kept to the colours in my invites for everything else. I went to red dot and matched plastic table clothes, ******ers and balloons. I hired a children's trestle table and 10 chairs from a local business and filled my own helium / foil balloons with a kit from spotlight. I had a themed number 1 cake made and we had a petting zoo for 1.5hrs. We decided to go all out for his first birthday. Will probably be a quiet affair until he's 5! good luck x

Thanks for all the fabulous suggestions. In the end we've settled on a rainbow theme. We've got invites, cake and decorations sorted. Can I tap your collective wisdom for other food ideas? Thank you!
