do you have alot of little people coming? or just adults? it depends on the people that you are having the party with.
I like to feed everyone. I like to have crafts for the kids and things that they can bring home. (soap making, hand print on paper and frame it, bees wax,) stuff like that.
an egg hunt and fill with treats (healthy)
these are all things your family can do its fun and not alot of money
We had a cowboy party for my son's first. He had two friends over and I borrowed a bunch of rocking horses. We made hobby horses out of craft foam and PVC pipe. The kids got bandanas and cowboy hats and went home with cowboy stickers and a cowboy book. We got a Gene Autry CD from the library. It sounds like a lot, but it was cheap and the kids still use all the stuff.
Dd will be one March 2, which seems to be looming really close these days *snif*
When she was in utero our nickname for her was "Melonhead" (there's a story behind this, but if vaginal self-exams squick anybody it'll be tmi for them :LOL) Anyway, we're planning a melon-themed party, with a "watermelon" cake, dark pink & green balloons and a picnic-check tablecloth. The only other little kid liable to be there is ds (who will be 6) but I think I'll make a couple sets of beanbags out of watermelon-themed fabric & he can play "toss the watermelon in the basket". Dd will no doubt gnaw on the beanbags :LOL
For ds's numero uno, back in my more commercalized days, we went with a Pooh theme. Bought Pooh invitations, napkins & plates, balloons in red & pooh-yellow, and frosted the cake with pooh-yellow & red with the words: "Hip hip POOH-RAY! [ds] is 1!"
Other themes we've had are caterpillar/garden, snowman, Lunar New Year (the dragon cake for that one was fantastic, if I do say so myself) and last year, barnyard/Charlotte's Web, with a Wilbur cake.
well this is a little unconventional but-
Due the fact my DD was born so close the christmas - like your child we just did a small family thing soooo in the summer when we can go outdoors she will have a un-birthday party. So she gets alittle excittment twice a year as opposed to two day clumped together.
