Before you know it, your little girl will hit a major milestone – her first birthday! This big day also means something else — you’ve made it through the first 365 days of parenthood. Congratulations, now it’s time to throw a party. Luckily, we’ve rounded up a dozen adorable first birthday theme ideas that you and your guest of honor will love.

A Celestial Theme Party

If a big party isn't your thing, why not host a mother-daughter lunch instead. Serve tiny finger-friendly food, like star-shaped peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches and tortilla chips, and offer guests their own little gold crown. This star studded affair is sweet enough to appeal to your little one, but sophisticated enough for the mostly adult crowd that you will likely have in attendance.
