How to choose first birthday theme

First birthday…the most awaited day since the day child is born, parents start thinking about his/her first birthday celebration. Parents already have a list of guests in mind whom they want to invite as its not just a birthday but also a family get-together.

Little one year old is learning to stand and talk, dances on tunes and loves party atmosphere but he/she has no favourite cartoon character. So…what to decide? parents are confused…here we go with few first birthday theme ideas other than characters which will surely help you to choose.

Color theme

For parents who do not want to choose any cartoon character can choose some unique color combination of decoration. Blue n white for boys or Pink n white for girls is too old, so select some unique favorite color to change the ambience. Guests also love to see and feel the ambience of different colors and colorful balloons without any doubt can change the complete look of the party area. Go for yellow, orange, completely white or multicolors …make it different.

Carnival theme

Carnival theme has a lot to offer and can be ideal for a first birthday because of its colors, clowns, animals, popcorns and so much more. As you enter the carnival, everything looks so exciting from entrance to food to games and the special cake table. There is a lot which can be used in this theme …. balloons, ribbons, buntings, danglers and what not. You just cannot fail to impress with clown sculptures.

Flowers and butterfly

It sounds like a girl theme and perfect for a girl’s first birthday but moms of boys love it too. So, with a twist in colors like white, blue or yellow it can be used for both the genders. Flowers in polka dots can do wonders and can change the whole scene. Be it a balloon butterfly or a cutout, it enhances and completes the flower theme.

Helium balloons

Helium balloons decoration is another good option if you don’t want to follow any character theme. Like I mentioned earlier, they can be used in many ways, like on chandeliers, arches, bouquets, centerpieces etc. Use metallic or printed balloons to make it even more special and unique. The only thing to keep in mind for helium balloons is to either choose light color or very bright. Medium shades are not suggested if only balloons are used for the decor.

Candyland theme

This one is my favorite. Kids love to be in candyland and the visual effect of lollies, candies and chocolates add a lot of joy. Candyland theme again follows no particular character but something which is liked by all age groups of kids. A special candy counter can be made for kids or a centerpiece with real candies on all tables will be a delight for them.

I will come up with more ideas to share on first birthday themes… wait a little.
