“There’s a lot to juggle, but here are a few theme ideas that can help you and your kiddo tossing party hats into the air.”

Sunflower theme: Last year we came up with sunflower theme for our niece first birthday. Wall décor would say it all, nice big flowers welcoming the guests, with a large standee on the entrance which had our doll’s photograph welcoming them. Selfie point with our doll’s pout picture was the eye catcher, and everyone was gifted back the picture clicked there. We had a decorated buffet birthday table with best of the sunflower themed cake, little cupcakes which had those cute little edible flowers on them spread all over the table, along with the candies kept in the jars. And it all just blossomed in the birthday bash. Return gifts were cupcakes and candies in colorful Mason jars placed in the sunflower themed basket.

Pool party: Book a water park, and that’s it. Nothing else is needed. The only song in the air could be “Aaj blue hai pani pani”. The swimming pool themed cake will take all the hearts away. Not only kids but adults can also enjoy the water slides, waves and the amusement park. And what better return gifts could be then a DIY umbrellas!!

Retro/ Vintage: It is an all-time favourite sport. Outfit your party space with lots of retro party decorations.

Tie peace signs, smiley faces, bright flowers, vintage records, tie-dye table covers, kaleidoscopes and disco balls into the décor.

Welcoming boys with a cow boy hat and girls with a retro necklace will add all the charm to the party.

Grab what’s trending: FIFA 2018, is all over the world this season so just go for it. Football theme will be the best suited. Themed returned gifts, (footballs clocks, caps, mugs, football), themed cutlery including plates, spoons, napkins, table covers, football caps all can mix-up to great party. And let your toddler wear referee T-shirt.

There are actually so many ways to have fun and enjoy baby’s very first birthday party – just remember to stick to the basics and let baby set the tone of the party!!!
