The most fun you can have for birthday parties, I think, is that first birthday party for your child. You can do what ever theme or color you want and since at this age, they are usually full of smiles and no opinions — it’s a win-win! We have seen some elaborate parties too, with full scale balloon installations and live animals.

We love the simple parties too — those that allow the child to shine and be the star. Pick a bright happy pink and you have a pretty stunning first birthday party. Tips to recreate this party:

— A gorgeous ruffle cake
— a cute tutu skirt or dress
— headband
— cute printable invites
— Our Hot pink Fancy Chandelier (or any of our chandeliers!) and hang from a tree with some fishing wire (that makes it disappear!)
— a cute little picnic of finger food for the little ones!
— Balloons with confetti and a balloon garland

Let’s try a sweet Turquoise Love You to the Moon and Back Party for a first birthday. Celebrate your little ones with a gender neutral party. What’s fun about this is the chance to incorporate bright colors, planets and moon and a super fun drippy cake. Our Turquoise Fancy Chandelier adds a pop of color and adds to any photo with the cake or your child. Consider it background glamour.
