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!:

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

Little man party theme

A little man theme has become a popular party theme lately for young boys, and especially 1st birthdays. This theme focuses heavily on the image of a mustache however often also incorporates bow-ties or ties as well.

It is an easy party to style through the use of printables and attaching mustaches to items such as candy jars, balloons, cups, favour bags etc

I’ve based the selections in this blog post around black/white as well as some chevron items which is often incorporated into this theme to give it a modern feel. You can find more chevron finds in this blog post.
