I’m in the process of thinking about Pebble’s first birthday party. We have a BIG family so it’s going to be big no matter how small we try and keep the guest list. I’m think it will either be at our place, or at a local community hall. January is a hot month and our back pergola gets stinking hot if it’s over 27 degrees outside, so outsourcing the venue might be a good idea for everyone’s sake.
Pebble loves her bath time and rubber ducks, they never fail to make her smile. I am thinking about a theme around the idea of rubber ducks, nothing too over the top, just something for me to focus on. I’m now searching the net for ideas and I can’t find any of my old favourite links! There were a few really cool kids party blogs out there but I’m lost in a sea of Google. If anyone knows any great party sites please leave me a comment and let me know :)
So far some ideas I have are:
- a rubber ducky bath time photo of Pebble for the invitations
- blue table clothes topped with clear bubble wrap to make it look all bubbly
- clear and blue balloons for more bubbles
- bubble blowing and yellow ducky play dough making for activities for the older littlies
- novice cake decorator!)
- duck shaped finger food
Whether any of this actually happens is another idea, but it’s nice to have ideas :)
What did you do for your child’s first birthday party?
