First year!

My daughter will be 1 next week! What did you moms do for your little one's first birthday?

    Happy birthday to LO! Our son turned 1 in January. We just had the grandparents and a few of our closest friends over for lunch and then cake & ice cream. Little man had his first cupcake and made a fantastic mess, so: great pictures. We had just moved to a new town, so we were still meeting people with kids his age. We kept it pretty simple, but it was perfect for us. I would just encourage you to set yourself up to enjoy celebrating your little one and not stress over too many details. At this age, the party is more for you than the baby (she won’t really remember it anyway) so enjoy the milestone and take lots of pictures.

    We have a little community room in our neighborhood we rented out, just had sandwiches, chips and cupcakes and of course a smash cake! Nothing huge, just our families and some close friends :)

    My daughters first birthday was in June, and I wanted to do a park get together but it was way to hot. So I just invited immediate family over to my (small) apartment for lunch and cake. Mostly so they could see her

    We had a Curious George party in the backyard. It was just our siblings and their kids and our parents. Most of the decorations were pretty generic and purchased from the dollar store. Despite that it looked really great. I made some decorations as well. I bought two plastic pools and we filled one with sand and one with rice. I put out a small ball pit for the babies and some balls of various sizes for all the kids in the middle of the yard. I also put out a small bubble machine and some music toys. Kids ages 8 months to 10 years had fun. We served home made chicken nuggets and mini pizzas. For desert we did banana split cupcakes (decorate your own).
