Check out our top tips, and make Baby’s 1st Birthday one you’ll always remember (even if baby won’t)!


Planning Baby’s 1st Birthday


Baby's first birthday

There are no hard & fast rules when it comes to planning baby’s first birthday. Your little one won’t remember it, so you can make it as extravagant or as low key as you like. Choosing a theme for the food and decor is sure to help make the day a memorable occasion – and can be a great way to get older brothers and sisters involved in the fun! Check out these great party ideas based on princesses or dinosaurs, or you could even base your theme on your favourite children’s story like Alice in Wonderland or Peter Pan.

As long as you and your partner are enjoying yourselves, baby will have a fantastic time whatever you plan.
