Hello ladies,<br>
My DS's first birthday is coming up and I would like to do something in celebration of his first year and my first year as a mother. At first I wanted a huge bash but realized that would be just too expensive KWIM? I have decided to invite mostly my family and a few women with babies about the same age as my DS.<br><br>
I had planned on using frogs as a theme and having the decor green and yellow with hand made decorations that my Step-kids would help make. Tonight I mentioned this to my Df and he said what about Sesame street. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> I admit my DS watches sesame street, and stops everything when certain characters on the screen, namely big bird and elmo. I really didn't want to do a commercial birthday theme but now my DF is insisting on it. I was wondering if any of you had done a commercial birthday theme and how it turned out.<br><br>
Next questions<br>
I plan on inviting both omnivores and vegitarians. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to make that work. I am all but clueless when it comes to vegitarian diet since I am a meat and potatos type of gal.<br><br>
Lastly, how did you tell people what you preferred your DC's recieve if gifts were given. I have tried hinting to my family I would love it if they all pitched in a paid for kindermusik instead of loud plastic toys. But they all think I am nuts to want my 1 year old in a music class. Suggestions would be nice.

Hey! I had to post. . .<br><br>
Ds is turning one this Monday and he just had his first Kindermusik class tonight w/ his daddy and looooooved it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> That is a great idea. Maybe you could put a fish bowl out at the party and label it 'Nathan's Kindermusik Fund'. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Or you could just put something on the invitation.<br><br>
Noah's party is gonna be basically fish and primary colors. He is veeeeeery into fish! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> familyfun.com has great 'theme' and cake ideas. (I am making the balloon cupcakes and the fishy cake for ds. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> )<br><br>
As for the menu--maybe you could do a good chicken salad and then an egg salad for the veggie lovers--that wouldn't work if they were vegans I guess. . . <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> And then you could just put out some rolls and they could make their own sandwhiches. Party mix and fruit/veggie trays are always a hit too. . .ooh, pm me if you want my 'famous' curry chicken salad recipe. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy"><br><br>
I hope you and your little one have a great party!<br><br>
