Re: Help me plan Orion's birthday!
Honestly, I would save the awesome ponies or safari animal guy party for when Orion is older and can enjoy it himself. At one, he's not going to know the difference at all if he has or doesn't have a party. The first birthday is for Mommy. At very least, maybe you should have something Mommy can enjoy (ie. not ponies). I'd go simple for one and two and save the extravagance for parties my child will be able to participate in/ remember. But that's just me.
As for a little less extravagant but still a little different, you could get a clown or a face painter or a magician or a balloon artist, or something like that.... Or get a professional photographer and get some awesome one year photos done. Maybe a petting zoo type thing with rabbits, kittens, baby goats, etc.? (Ok, so I do see the ad for Hop over there. -->)
