Y’all. I’m sitting here holding back tears because The Baby will turn 1 in June. JUNE! That’s like tomorrow! If you have a pause button for babies and you’re holding out on me, now’s the time or else I’ll need boy 1st birthday party ideas!
The Baby Is Turning 1! 7 Fabulous All Boy 1st Birthday Party Ideas
No? Okay then.
Then it’s party time. Which means that I need to start planning (anyone want to volunteer their awesome birthday party ideas?)! Since The Baby’s 1st birthday *sob* will be one that is more for his big brother and me, I want the theme to be something that appeals to both boys.
The problem? There’s just so many cute ideas out there!
Boys Love Tools
Party on Purpose created this amazing construction-themed party that can work for both older and younger kids. Just give The Baby something to chew on or bang, and let the bigger kids enjoy play dough or kinetic sand.
If you’ve got a little gentleman, this theme is so adorable, and perfectly suited to my Southern tastes. Emily Ley hit the nail on the head with this one!
Who Doesn’t Love Baby Elephants?
Spaceships And Laserbeams created this adorable baby elephant theme, which I just can’t ignore. One of the boys is definitely celebrating with elephants this year. But which one…?
This just made me giggle. There’s a serious cute factor going on with all of the mustache-themed goodies over at Hostess With The Mostess! Maybe I’m drawn to the facial hair theme because of my bald babies…or maybe I just want to be punny…I mustache you: would this theme amuse you? (See what I did there??)
Baby… Or Cookie Monster?
Who doesn’t love cookies? I am enamored with this adorable party theme from Catch My Party! And honestly? Who really needs a smash cake? Those suckers are expensive! I’m sure that The Baby would be just as happy noshing on a cookie…and I could frost it, right?
The Very, Very Hungry Baby
I’m in love with Eric Carle. Seriously. My children can’t get enough of his books, and The Baby chews on his caterpillar daily. Learn With Play At Home has some awesome ideas to make this a very delicious party indeed.
Simple And Meaningful
Of course, we may just follow Frontier Dreams‘ lead and do a simple Waldorf party that helps the boys feel special and keeps the day centered around them. I just need to find a suitable birthday ring…
What did you do for your child’s first birthday?
