First Birthday - anyone already started planning

We've recently been to 3 1st year bday parties over the past 2 months and it gets me thinking about LO turning 1 which seems so far away but I'm sure it will go by fast. Anyone already started thinking about your LO's first birthday? Theme already in mind?

  • YES!! But I am a freak planner lady. The theme will be "this birthday is brought to you by the number 1 and the letter T" Sesame Street style :)

    My friend and SIL had the same theme for their LOs.

  • I wasn't but now I am! Maybe I will do Dr. Seuss since that has been a "theme" since I was pregnant with her.

  • @carolynl8 it's such an easy one to do because you can have all the food/favors that start with the letter

  • My mom and I started planning! We want to do a shark theme. I love summer birthdays (mine is 2 days after MJ's) I can't wait :)

    Backyard BBQ, woot. So happy to have a kid with a summer bday this time. The theme is "our kid is turning one, come have a beer to celebrate the fact that we're all still alive."
    I like that theme!
    I have not even come close to thinking about this yet.  Now that you've brought it up though I'm going to have to start pinning away....I'm really excited he has a summer birthday too.  Mine is always when it is cold and I would wish for warm weather. :)

  • I'm with skio! We have a big pool. When we bought our house 2 years ago I told my husband we're only having summer babies from now on. We will do a Cookie Monster theme because I saved all of the banners and stuff from G's party.

  • I think we'll end up having to have two parties. One with my family and on with his. The distance is just too far. Haven't thought of a theme yet. We're pretty geeky, so it will probably be a geeky theme for both.

  • I have a theme and a Pinterest board. We were team green and referred to LO as 'ninja'. She always kicked once really fast during her ultrasounds. So I found some girl ninja invites and made an executive desion to have a ninja bday party. I'm sure years to come things will be pink and princess so I'll do something different now that she has no say!

  • I love planning parties! His first birthday will be baseball themed and will be "J's Rookie Year" with hotdogs, peanuts, cracker jacks, etc.

  • I'll probably do a baseball theme since that's what his room is done in it.

  • I know his theme is going to be monsters.  I've decided that's his "thing." :)  DS1 had a sock monkey first bday and a Sesame Street 2nd birthday. Poor kid got a couple Spiderman plates and some cupcakes for his third birthday because I was 8+ months pregnant and just couldn't lol

    Agreed!
  • Now you guys have me thinking! I swear I was not thinking about this at all until I started reading all of these cute ideas!
  • I was planning it before DD was born. :\">

    Since DS will be 3 on May 31 and DD will be 1 on June 21, we are going to have joint monkey themed party. We will still celebrate their individual birthdays, but since their birthdays are so close together and in the summer we are going to have an outdoor BBQ. Since they are young we can do this and they won't care about sharing a party. :)
  • Not REALLY planning. But I do know that we're doing a Raggedy Ann theme. :)
