My son will be a year old in September but I am planning his party early since we will be moving across the country in the beginning of September. (Plus it’s winter and what else do I have to do?)
The first step to planning a first birthday party is to pick a theme. His favorite book (at the moment) is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. I also like the symbolism of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly for a baby turning into a toddler.
A Very Hungry Caterpillar theme is very popular. I started on Pinterest and was blown away by the amount of ideas for party decorations and party food to match the book.
Check out my Very Hungry Caterpillar Party board for a growing list of millions of ideas for party food, decorating, favors, activities, and more.
What was your theme for your child(ren)’s first birthday?
