DD Alex had Telletubies. DS Ender had teddy bears. TDD Aeryn & Ashe had Duckies. DS Asterix had dump trucks. They all had their own little matching cakes. Dump trucks might not work for a girl but the other all would. I also like the idea of Lady Bugs for a little girl.

We did for all 3 of our girls the "first birthday girl" theme. Elmo and Dora were the others my oldest had. We are going for a "signing time" theme for their 2nd bday since that is really all they are "into"..
HTH,

For my daughter's first birthday we did Raggedy Ann and Andy, and it was the cutest theme! I got the decorations from Birthday Express.

For my oldest son, we did Winnie the Pooh, because that was the stuffed animal toy he recognized and he said "pooh."

The baby will turn 1 in November, and we are planning a sesame street theme for him.

We had a Hawaiian Luau! I got most of the decorations from the dollar store. We had tropical fruit, Hawaiian pizza and fruit punch. I got grass skirts for the LOs and even those little paper umbrellas for the drinks. DS wore his Hawaiian shirt and shorts. I played luau music in the background. I got all the guests to dress in the spirit of Aloha. I got Hawaiian themed goody bags and wrote the recipients name in Hawaiian http://www.hawaiicity.com/hawaiian_name.htm

It was super easy and a lot of fun!!

I didn't have a theme for my DD's 1st birthday parties, really. I made the cakes myself and decorated them with soy cream cheese frosting and did flowers and script on them. I kept it very simple and as stress-free as possible (which was impossible since it was two birthday parties and none of the guests got along or showed up at all.)

I'm not sure if ya'll have Hobby Lobby in Canada, but they have really cute The Big "1" theme. Pink and white, plain and simple but very cute.
