After much discussion, we have settled on a theme for S’s first birthday party: Winter ONEderland. Winter is our favorite time of year and baby’s birthday is a few days before Christmas, so it’s a good fit. We got these invitations, with matching thank you cards and month labels for displaying pics of S from birth-1 year.
And we are going to get this outfit for S to wear:
It will be a small mostly family gathering at our place. We’re planning on using a blue/silver/white color scheme and we’ll decorate using snowflakes, snowmen, and other wintery (but not Christmasy) items. Thinking about doing a hot chocolate bar with mix ins for kids (marshmallows, whipped cream, etc.) and adults (Baileys!). Still need to figure out food (I’m thinking maybe a big pot of turkey chili and snacky stuff). We’re also doing small bags of brown sugar cookies in snowflake and 1 shapes for favors. Any other ideas out there?
I’d love to hear about others birthday ideas, too! One – too crazy!
