This week I wanted to give some advice on throwing a 1st birthday party. We went to a few and I wanted to share what was fun.
Honestly, having a lot of things for the kids to do was the most fun. We went to one party where there was a swing, a water table, a sand box, and the pool. Chase was running back and forth playing with the water table and balls. They also had a bounce house and a trampoline but Chase wasn't too into those. The older kids were.
A lot of one year olds take two naps a day so lunch time is when the parties are usually held. Try to get the lunch served pretty quickly.
At Chase's party we ate lunch and then did cake and presents right after.
I liked when there was a theme. We went to one party that was just kind of random and it wasn't as fun as the theme parties.
My pal Brittany was pinning some mustache birthday party stuff and I wanted to share an acquaintances bday blog post. I had to search forever to find these for you my friend! Part 1 Part 2 These may intimidate you. She's a real person, I've met her. She is a stay at home mom though. Looked like everyone had a blast!
Our favorite party was bug themed. They had all kinds of cute bug snacks and the sandbox was dig for bugs. Very cute.
But the most important thing is to enjoy the time you have with your friends and family celebrating your one year old! I wrote this post with some advice right after we had Chase's party.
