Lucky you! You’re planning your baby’s first birthday and it’s summertime. That means that there’s a long list of summer birthday party themes that are as fun and as easy-breezy as the season itself. From watermelon and ice pop themes to hosting an under the sea bash, we’ve got a list of summer party ideas that’ll leave your newly minted one-year-old showing off a sunny, cake-covered grin.

Fly Into Summer Party

The Fly Into Summer theme is unique and gives party goers something to talk about — check out the cool vintage maps. It's also a theme that won't break the bank. Kristen Toy shows us how she threw this boy bash on a budget by using items she already had or could pick up on the cheap. Get inspired by her high flying dessert table at Spaceships and Laser Beams.
