Today I’m sharing such a gorgeous first birthday party with a Twinkle Twinkle little star party theme by Alex of Saffy and May (Qld) for her daughter!
This is one of my favorite themes (and one I used for my son’s Baptism dessert table) and I recently blogged here sharing party supplies for a twinkle twinkle little star party theme
Alex explains the inspiration behind this first birthday party:
“I started planning for my little one’s first birthday pretty much after she was born. I didn’t have a set theme to start off but I knew I wanted pastels colours, confetti and a touch of glitter gold.
Then at around 6 months, it became clear that Sahara’s favourite lullaby was and still is twinkle twinkle little star. So I sent my mood board to Belinda from Giggles & Grace Designs and she designed the sweetest printables”:
I just love the way the star theme is carried through this first birthday dessert table from the cake topper and cake to all the desserts and accessories:
This setup is so beautiful with a custom first birthday print! An area such as this at a first birthday party is perfect for special photos:
Alex explains more about this sweet setting at the party – “when possible, I love adding to my girls’ parties handmade touches. On this occasion, I made some party horns with fringed tissue paper. I also made a star cushion which is now in Sahara’s nursery. We had a small favour table with party boxes and a selection of photos from Sahara’ s first 12 months. I also decorated a small section with balloons, star stickers , a high chair and a cute milestone poster for Sahara and family to have photos taken”
Personalised and handmade touches make any birthday party extra special but moreso for that memorable first birthday party!
The little queen of the party herself – such a joyful smile and her cute first birthday outfit is styled to match her gorgeous party!:

A twinkle twinkle little star party theme is hugely popular at the moment and is such a sweet theme for a little boy or girl! I love this theme and used it for my son Joshua’s Christening dessert table as it was the first nursery rhyme his sisters sang to him when he was born and I just love the cute party theme.

‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ was the first song that my 2 daughter’s sang to Joshua in the hospital after he was born – and so his Baptism theme was inspired by this sweet theme in shades of blue and silver.
I’m thrilled to be able to share with you some details from my son’s Joshua’s Baptism party setup which was recently featured on Babyology here!
All credits are at the end of the post and of course are all vendors from the Life’s Little Celebration’s children’s party directory.
We had a small celebration at home after the Baptism and here is the dessert table setup with the cake made by my sister who was Joshua’s Godmother:

A close up of the backdrop, cake topper and star garland. I really love all the shades of blue in the backdrop by Pretty and Print:
A side view of the table…I just loved this blue console table hired from Sweet Heavenly Events Hire. I kept the setup quite simple as you can see…as much as I LOVE all the detailed setups I see online I always keep my setups quite easy because I know in the mad rush of getting the party ready as well as looking after the kids – it is less stressful to have an easy dessert table layout!
These handmade geometric stars were so cleverly made by ‘Paper Face’!:
Here’s a close up of all the dessert table goodies – credits/links at the end of the post!
Loving the silver foil detailing on these chocolate gems:
These macarons tasted heavenly!:
Gorgeous tones of blue on these meringue kisses:
The kids table was kept fairly simple. I hired some cute kids ghost chairs and mixed up the tableware with blues and silver and star serviettes and star labels for the water bottles (by Memories Are Sweet):
Some simple favour packaging:
