Re: first birthday party ideas!??

miranda was born on the 3rd of september.. She had Carebears, then of course a princess theme, and this year we aren't doing the party thing. For the last couple weeks Ive been feeling out of sorts, and the last week I figured out why.. because by now I'm planning out a party! lol Not this time.. So now i just get the fun parts.

I think bubbles would be a fun theme for a one year old. I'm seeing:

- Instead of birthday cake, a pile of cupcakes iced in blues and greens, maybe even with some shimmer. Make an extra-special cupcake in the birthday child's favorite color for them to smush.

- Set up buckets with bubble solution and various wands and bubble making implements for the kids at the party to play with.

- Clear plastic party plates to look like bubbles. Maybe find an ice cube tray that makes round ice cubes to float in the drinks (big clear pitchers or canisters of lemonade and such). Fun round foods (cheese balls, circle sandwiches, doughnuts, round pasta salad, etc.).

- Get several large clear balls to place around the yard for the kids to play with.

- Instead of goody bags, maybe a bottle of bubbles from the dollar store.

- For the invitations, have blue and green circles on a card. Have one circle with clear Saran Wrap over it, directly over a small picture of your daughter on the inside of the card, with the party details.

- For centerpieces, blow up blue, green, and white/clear balloons to a small size (as big as an orange). Place them in large bowls and scatter them around the tables.

hey is a link to the theme I was talking about. I thought of something else for her invites you can make a collage of all pics from birth till now and put them on the front of the invite with a cute little first birthday poem inside with party details and then just do what colors you like for plates and stuff. I have a invite like that my mom saved for an idea to use with Carley.

and lizzydarcy that is such a cute idea I only wished the weather was predictable the first part of december sometimes its warm sometimes it's freezing but I great idea for summer babies.
