Paw Patrol is hugely popular at the moment and many a child is choosing this for their birthday party theme.
My kids love paw patrol and it is a party theme which can suit both boys and girls with many girls having a “Skye” or “Everest” paw patrol party. Your child may choose to have all the characters featured in their invitation and decorations or just their favourite pup – meaning that anything goes for the colour scheme!
However for this blog post I have stuck with the more common blue/red and some black/white/

I can’t wait for you to see the 4th photoshoot in the Confetti Fair magazine feature series of bird inspired shoots where Life’s Little Celebration partners (who you can find on the Directory pages) collaborated to create an inspiring party setting ! I hope you’ve loved seeing the amazing party shoots which have emerged from the inspiration of a flamingo, swan and magpie and today the bright and tropical Toucan inspired 10th birthday party shoot!
Inspired by the colours of the toucan and the tropical habitat it occupies this party was about being fun and colourful but also a little bit grown up for a 10th birthday. This summer party is full of vibrant deep rich colours and splashes of tropical fruits. Lush and sophisticated this is a party that could easily be held poolside to capture that resort-style vibe.
I love the handpainted party decor, the fun and fruity partyware and amazing tropical inspired desserts!
Elizabeth from ELK prints styled and coordinated this shoot (and created the gorgeous invitation & handpainted leaf decor) and brought the colourful Toucan bird to life. Photos are by Captured by Kirri and all other fabulous Life’s Little Celebration partners involved are listed at the end of this post!

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)
Mustache and 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!:
