Discussing 1st birthday party plans? I just went over to the "Birthday Parties" board. I don't know if I am ready to "plan" but I do have some ideas in mind. Anyone?

  • I've been brainstorming since he was born. Haha! My issue is my kids share a birthday so I want to combine their 1st and 3rd. Someone on Sept 2010 suggested Three Cheers for a Winter ONEderland. I love it but I just can't get any cute ideas in my head! I think I'm gonna do an art party.

    That is SO awesome that they share a birthday! How in the world did you manage that one? Ha!

  • I have several ideas based on DS's current favorites, but I'm going to wait till it gets closer to make a decision. My ideas include: baseball, elephants and fish
  • I wanted to have a tea party for DD, but am saving that for "Tea for Two" (squee)... might do a bookworm/library themed party.

    I'm always up for party talk. Much more fun than sleep talk, imo. 

    I got Leo's present already. It was free because I used points I get for work, which is the only reason why I already have it. I got him a Radio Flyer ride on vintage race car and will do a vintage race car theme. We will probably do the party in our backyard and serve milk & cookies, and cake. I have looked on ebay for some old pine wood derby cars and will probably buy a bunch and do a pine wood derby race for the entertainment for the older kids/men. I also saw some little wooden race cars that we can set up on a table to decorate.

  • I am going to do an "I love Luci" birthday party!  Since Luci is turning out to be a bit of a ginger, I am going to find or make the polka dot dress like Lucille Ball wore and the pearls.  And her cake is going to be like the logo from the show, except with Lucy spelled with an "i" instead of a "y".  I am pretty excited about it.

    He was 2.5 weeks early and it was so NOT planned. I cried and was having the hardest time bc it happened right after my DDs birthday breakfast. Now I love it and think the kids will too, but at the time I was very upset!

    It would be super cute if you could send the pinewood derby cars as the invite so people could decorate/ "soup" theirs up and then bring it to the party!

  • Yep, I already have a pinterest board started. I love a good party, even though it's really hard for me to come to terms with the fact that he'll be one in just a few months. 

    Ideas include: Star Wars, Video Games (DH works in VGs), or a Carnival type thing.

  • I would love to start talking parties!  I have been pinning things to a secret board on Pinterest for months now and my H thinks I am crazy, so I would love to have a place to discuss my plans with others who will not judge my excitement :-)  I am thinking of doing a French theme, I found really cute French Poodle invitations on Etsy :-)

    Lucille Ball is my all time favorite! Cute idea BTW! Big Smile

    Oh boy. I LOVE anything vintage + race cars = awesome. I think that is a good idea to incorporate something with the adults, that way it keeps everyone entertained. I think kids birthday parties can easily get kinda weird, especially for our friends that don't have kids yet.

  • I am pretty sure we are going to have a vintage carnival theme.

    Did you know Pinterest will only let you have 3 secret boards? I had to make one public so I could start a birthday board.

    I saw some fabric at JoAnns the other day that had hot pink poodles on it. What a fun/different idea! I refuse to do anything with characters, until he is old enough to choose of course.

    I know, that is crazy, they should let you have how ever many you want!

     My H and I really love France, in fact he lived there for a few years before we met, so a French theme (and French foods) are very us.  I figured adding in the poodle makes it more appropriate for a baby's party (although most, if not all guests will be adults).  The colors I think we are going to do are pink, white, black with some tiffany blue accents.

  • All 3 of my kids are having a BIG birthday party on August 17th. (DD Aug1, DS1 July 28, DS2 Sept 6)

    I've been debating all sort of themes. This year I might just go with boring birthday party themed party. 

    Or cowboys... DD loves cowboys.

    I'm going to get Leo a shirt from the same person that made James' to wear during his smash cake. She makes a cute one for your carnival theme:

    What an adorable idea - I really look forward to seeing pics of your DD!

    I haven't even thought about DD's party yet. sigh. She shares a bday with her daddy, though, so I'm sure he will say that he gets to decide the theme, lol...which means Star Wars, football, or video games Tongue Tied

  • I've been thinking about doing a Curious George theme, but haven't 100% decided on it yet. 

    ETA: or Super Mario.  or just superheroes.  I'm really indecisive!

    You could do a Par-Three, Hole in One party and make it all golf theme with pink and blue argyle. You could still do a tea party set up too but call it the tee box.

  • Dh and I want to do a my little pony theme party. Dd will be Princess Cesar? (like Celestia) and then have little play stations based on the other characters (all of her cousins are at least 3 years older than her and I wanted stuff for them to do). I already have a secret pinterest board full of ideas.
