This past week we celebrated Emilia turning one year old by throwing her a unicorn themed first birthday party. We didn’t want to throw a huge party but we knew we wanted to do something to celebrate. We decided to host a small get together and invited the kids from her Sunday school class (along with their parents and siblings) to our home for dessert.
Since Emilia is my first child, I’ve actually never hosted a kids birthday party before. Because of this, I definitely had to do a bit of research about how to throw a one year old birthday party first. What makes a first birthday party tricky is that you are essentially throwing a party that is just as much for the adults as it is for the kids. Truthfully, your one year old will never remember her first birthday party but it’s still so fun to celebrate this huge milestone.
So now that Emilia’s first birthday party is over, I’m sharing everything I’ve learned about how to throw a first birthday party for your little one. Here are 5 tips for throwing an amazing first birthday party.
