Boy’s 1st birthday party themes

A first birthday party is always so special to plan! Your little boy generally doesn’t have strong specific likes/dislikes and of course has NO preference when it comes to a party theme which means you have free reign to choose any party theme you feel will suit your child. I’m brainstorming ideas for my own son’s 1st birthday next year and am currently thinking of an ice-cream theme or perhaps a vintage tricycle theme.

To inspire you today I’m sharing some fantastic boy’s 1st birthday themes/setups by Event stylist vendors on the Life’s Little Celebration’s children’s party directory . I will soon do another post for little girl’s 1st birthday themes. Hopefully this post will give you some new ideas or party planning inspiration for your son’s 1st birthday!

Now of course for a first birthday party you could also go with ‘no theme’ and base it more around a colour scheme such as this amazing setup!:


Boys First birthday party- Sweet Bits and Pieces (Sydney)


Love these cute bow-tie themed parties. Perfect for a little man!:


Bow tie first birthday – Memories Are Sweet (Qld)

How bright and fresh does this 1st birthday dessert table look?:

You could base the party around a favourite story book you enjoy reading to your child. The very hungry caterpillar is a very popular first birthday theme and a lot of fun to plan!:

The circus is always reminiscent of childhood which makes it another popular first birthday theme for boy’s:

Little kids love animals so a jungle, safari or farm theme party is another great choice for a first birthday party!:

If you like the rustic looks then a cowboy theme is another great first birthday party idea:

Another cute idea is to base the first birthday theme around popular children’s characters, shows or movies for a fun birthday setting. Here are some ideas:


Toy Story first birthday party – El Evento (Sydney)


Pinnochio first birthday party – Lettuce & Co


Sesame St first birthday – Dream a Little Dream Parties (WA)

Giggle and Hoot first birthday party – Sweet Heavenly Events and Party Hire (Sydney)


Ending off is this fun ‘Royal’ theme which you could have a lot of fun with toy soldiers etc like in this setup:

I hope you enjoyed the inspiration and if you are planning your son’s 1st birthday (like me) I’d love to hear what theme’s you are thinking of!
