First Birthday Parties are one of my favorite parties to plan!
From the smash cake to the décor you can really be creative in your celebration whether you want to go all out or keep it simple! I love how simple but pretty this high chair looks with tissue paper tassel garland and a gold glitter one banner from GlamFete!
Tissue paper or fabric garland is one of my favorite party décor pieces, especially for a first birthday party, because it can make any occasion festive and also doubles as home décor long after the party!
Here’s an example of fabric garland used for a First Birthday Party displaying the birthday girl’s growth during the last 12 months in the Coral, Robin’s Egg Blue and Elephants First Birthday Party.
After the party the fabric garland completes this gallery wall in the birthday girls bedroom! You can get more details of the bedroom here.
When I started planning this Whimsical Parade First Birthday Party I came across this beautiful yet simple party with tissue paper garland from GlamFete!
It coordinated perfectly with this adorable whimsical dress from Laroque for the birthday girl, as in the below inspiration board. This party above is proof that simply adding tissue paper garland for the backdrop transforms this party into a fun, chic celebration!
This sweet and whimsical party dress was the First Birthday Party theme. Using pink, coral, blue, gold, and yellows I coordinated the rest of the décor. I love these tissue paper flowers from Via Blossom, which is also inspiration for the backdrop! GlamFete also has foil number and letter balloons, which are perfect for a First Birthday Party or any occasion!

One of my favorite elements of any party, but especially a kids party, is the dessert table!
From the backdrop, sweets, to printables, you should try to coordinate them all with the theme of your party! I recommend having at least 3 sweet treats for people to choose from, enough that everyone has a bite of something.

One of my favorite parties we planned and designed, which is also one of our most popular pins on Pinterest, is this Cherry Blossom and Birds Themed First Birthday Party.
If hosting a kids party around lunch or dinner make sure you include a food table, which has something for both kids and adults to enjoy!
Keep it simple with pizza, slidders or BBQ as your main dishes, fresh fruit, fruit squeezable packs, gold fish, pretzels, or chips.
