1st Birthday Party Ideas

Those of you who have been following our blog know that I have two boys. One is five and the other is a week away from 9 months. With my oldest turning six a couple months after Kindergarten starts, it’s safe to say birthdays around here are going to start gettinginteresting.

My youngest son turns the big ONE this August and since the first birthday is a big deal, I’m starting to get some ideas rounded up now. Now, you have to understand that I’m pretty good at procrastinating so the fact that I’m thinking three months in advance for his birthday is pretty amazing. And, since I’ve been looking at first birthday party ideas, I thought I’d share a few with you in case you, or someone you know, have a little one turning one in the next few months!

Baby Water Party: Since my son’s birthday is in August, this idea is pretty appealing to me. It can be done at home or at the local pool, depending on your preference. Personally, I like to invite family and close friends (and their kids) only for the first birthday party so I would opt for at home. All you have to do to make this party a hit is fill up a small wading pool with a couple inches of water and advise parents with small children that there will be pools available for splashing. If you have kids of different age groups, you may need more than one pool. Definitely make sure that parents are supervising their kiddos while they’re in the water. Family BBQ: Some people like to keep birthdays for kids under five simple and only invite family over. There’s nothing wrong with this, especially for the first birthday party when the little one won’t remember…
