  • I'll be taking the day off of work to spend with him. Maybe going to the zoo. Definitely a cake smash. :)

  • Ahhhh! I can't believe it! Thanks to Pinterest I have a million and one things I want to do but I will start narrowing it down once the new year is here.
  • This is me crying my eyes out at the thought of my guy being one. Noooo!

  • I just figured out what I might do for his birthday! I got the idea from the "Chapter 1" theme.. I am doing periodic table theme.. he will be Hydrogen. I will be drawing a little hydrogen symbol on his head like Dr. Manhattan. Omg.... I am typing all this out as I think. Lol.

  • My first thought was I can stop pumping!!!!!!
    Birthday party will probably be a back yard bbq. Thinking ladybugs. Red checkered table cloths. I've made a ladybug cake in the past. Turned out super cute.

  • What's a chapter 1 theme?
  • I'm in denial. .. my baby is going to be 7 mos forever. ... so zip it! But for real, I have not a clue what theme we are doing. :/

  • Ours will also be book themed, I just haven't decided what yet. His room has Shel Silverstein work hanging on the walls, but I want to change it up for the party!
    ours does too!  Where the Sidewalk Ends

    So cute! I did a ladybug theme for Ava's first birthday and made a fondant ladybug cake. It was really fun!

  • DD is obsessed with anything monkey-related, and we call her our little monkey sometimes. So, we're going with that theme. I've made all of DS' cakes for the past 9 years ... everything from Elmo to Legos to Dinosaurs to the Avengers, so I'll be doing that tradition with DD as well.

    We will invite family over for a party -- usually snacks and then cake. Oh, and she'll definitely have a chance to smash/dig in that cake too!

    @chicagobroad26 - I don't know if these are your style at all, but I have been wasting lots of time and $ today on Etsy buying leg warmers for Maddie and just saw these.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/122004100/cow-leg-arm-warmers-for-babies-through-8?ref=sr_gallery_19&ga_search_query=cow+leg+warmers&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all&ga_facet=cow+leg+warmers

  • We're doing "Thing 1 and Thing 2" themed parties. My sister is throwing a party for my family in California. I'll have a party got our local friends. I'll probably have it at our country club because I'm too lazy to clean the house.

    I'm booking a hall because I don't want to have it at my house. I had my wedding reception, bridal shower, & engagement party at my house & the clean up and preparation is always horrible. Brayden loves owl sounds so were doing a "Dapper owl" theme. Owls with little mustaches, ties, and hats.

    Those are so cute! I'll keep my eye on them, since there will probably be a costume change after cake ;)

  • LO's bday falls on a Saturday next year, which is nice. I think we're just doing a small get together/brunch type celebration with grandmas and our closest friends. I haven't thought about it much beyond that.
  • PP a chapter one party would just be book themed. I don't have all the specifics thought out, but there are out there on Pinterest. :)

  • @KatK421 and @cece2682 if you do end up doing a VHC party, let me know! I have a bunch of printables that I got from a blog and a bunch of things I made for Charlie's birthday party. :-)

    My sister and I learned the art of marshmallow fondant and made a cake - it was a lot easier than I thought it would be! I have a Pinterest board with lots of VHC links too, if you want.

    I think I may be he only parent that doesn't intend on doing a themed birthday party for LO. We'll have a small party with grandparents and godparents.... I think I just found my UO for the day :)

  • I don't think I'm going to have a definite theme but will rather stick with a colour scheme. I think it'll probably be simpler that way, and it will be just family and close friends so I don't want to stress myself out trying to plan a super elaborate themed party. Can't wait to make his cake and do a cake smash though :) ... I also don't want to think about him turning one yet ! :'(
