    Simple Ideas for a Choosing a Spectacular First Birthday Theme


    It’s time for planning the first birthday!  Your family has a whole lot to celebrate from first teeth, first words, first steps, and other milestones.  But where do you even begin to choose a theme when Pinterest is filled with so many cute things?!


    Girrrlll, you know I’ve gotcha covered on this one!  


    Being a momma myself I have only planned two first birthdays, but as the owner of Sweet Chubby Cheeks since 2012 I have helped thousands of other women in your shoes and I am sharing my best tips with you today.


    Interests - (ha ha) Okay, so I know you are thinking, but Megs, my daughter is in love with the box her toy came from, instead of the actual toy. I totes get it. But maybe she has a favorite stuffed lovie, or a favorite book she loves to have you read over and over (and OVER!).  As she is transitioning in to solid foods, maybe there is a food she is really starting to dig on that you could plan a theme around. I mean, let’s be honest here, if it was up to me every one of my own birthday parties would involve me just grubbing on pizza, wearing sweat pants, and watching my fave Netflix show, so... 


    Take a Nod from Your Nursery Decor - Let’s face it, your nursery decor is On. Point. Why not continue to run with it for a first birthday theme?  And the pictures from her first birthday would continue to look amazing hanging on the gallery wall in her room.   

    Twinkle Twinkle with glittering stars, beautiful soft watercolor floral prints, or magical unicorns are popular nursery themes now, and might be first birthday themes worth considering.  

    Puns are Fun - you may or may not have picked up on the fact that I can be a little light hearted and corny from time to time, and who doesn’t love a good pun?   

    For babies with winter birthdays consider a Snow Much Fun to be One or Winter Onederland theme both with pale pink and lavender options complemented with glittery silver and white.  Pair this with snowflake cupcake toppers and you’ve got yourself a theme!

    Wild One looks amazing with leaves and a more boho feel that is so on-trend right now.  We have paired ours with a coral, mint, and gold colorway option, but custom colors can be made upon request.  

    Twotti Fruity is a fun idea for celebrating a second birthday or twins - because they are double the fun and twice as nice! See what I did there? 😉  


    Momma, your baby is amazing. And you know what?  It means her first birthday will be too.  You will do an incredible job with her party.  She will look the bomb-dot-com with her outfit and party decor from Sweet Chubby Cheeks, your family and friends will all be there surrounding you with love, and it will be perfect no matter what.

    Pick a theme, cross this off your to-do list, and go plan something fun!! Like, say, um…cake tastings?!
