Popular first birthday themes for boys – Party Ideas Post

Do you remember your first birthday? We bet you don’t. I know I don’t remember my first birthday party. If there was one, I know I was there, that’s all.

I bet everybody else that was there remembers. Being a little boy, I probably made a big mess, at way too much food, made lots of noise and had a large amount of fun. Oh and ran around a lot, fell over a few times, okay, more than a few times, and there may have been tears.

In other words a good party as far as I, at the time, was concerned. The grown ups that were all there probably had lots of fun too. Now if you cannot remember your first birthday party, don’t be concerned. This, apparently, is normal. Which is because a boys first birthday, as much as it is held for the birthday boy, is just as much about family catching up, taking stock, and getting up to date with a new family members capabilities. Ever hear “Look how much you have grown?” Check.

In order to make sure that your boys first party is every success that you would like it to be, here is a short list of some great party ideas that we hope you will find helpful

Invitations.

This is where it all starts. Your little boys birthday invitations are the very first inkling your family and friends will have about the impending celebration. Choose a theme if you like, as this can help to plan your decorations, as well as be a whole heap of fun. Some popular invitation themes for boys include planes, trains, and automobiles, cars, balloons, or perhaps a favourite animal or cartoon character.

Banners

A bright, bold and beautiful banner is a good way to let your guests know that they have arrived – at the right place.  The uses for boys party banners don’t stop there however. You can use a pretty wide format party banner to brighten up a blank wall, or even as a backdrop for a candy buffet table. Speaking of which…

Candy Table

Highly anticipated at parties and birthdays around the world, a candy table is like a magnet for hungry children. Yes and little children too.  Most everyone likes sweets, and a candy table also fills the need for finger food. On that topic, it will pay t plan ahead, to ensure you buy enough candy buffet lollies and sweets. Online is excellent for this, particularly if you are in a large country, such as Australia.

Birthday Cake

No party is complete without a yummy cake, a sing a long, and that timeless – if rather unhygienic – ritual of blowing out the candles. Here is a page about birthday cake topper ideas that we think might be helpful.

Party Favours.

Send your guests on their way with a smile, and something sweet to remember you by. Oh and load them up with a bit more sugar too lol. Either small party bags and boxes full of candy, or – and this is a pretty safe bet cause everyone likes chocolate – custom chocolate bar wrappers holding delicious milk chocolate. All themed in the same theme as your invitations.

Perfect.
