1st Birthday Party Decor

girls first birthday party decorating ideas

It's been quite awhile since my little one turned one, but when you have a camera that's been out of commission for a couple of weeks, you find things you forgot about! I'm so glad that I stumbled back upon these pictures. It brings back some good memories :)

Her birthday didn't have much of a theme, just pink and white. For the table decor, I used the most out of the tissue pompoms I made and put them in the place of candles on the candle sticks. To make it all about the birthday girl, I got rid of my giant mirror that usually hangs on the wall and put up her picture with some balloons and other decor.

 I think my favorite part was putting some cupcakes on a candelabra. It added the perfect touch :)

 As for the cupcakes, I went easy and made them out of a cake box, but iced them with pretty rosettes and topped them with little edible pearls.

For the buffet, I kept it pretty simple. For the cupcake 'stands' I just turned a bowl upside down and placed a plate on top. Boom, instant cake stand :)

In the kitchen, I hung some tissue pompoms from the ceiling and swagged a cheap plastic tablecloth in front of the island.

Here's the cute little cake I made. I was going to have someone make one of these for me, but it would cost around $40. So, I figured to save some money, I would learn to do it myself. First try here and it turned out perfect! You can see how I did it in this tutorial here.

For the drinks, I used mason jars with just the rims of the lids. I placed them all in a tray to corral them.

As far as decor, I strung some jute between our arches and hung up monthly pictures of the babe. I reused the clips that were used during her baby shower. To pretty up the ends, I added some more tissue pompoms. Yes, this party was full of those pompoms :)

I even redecorated the mantel for the party. I put all her baby pictures up and decorated a wreath with her initial on it.

And of course, some of the little details are super important to tie a whole thing together like these chair ribbons made from pink tulle.

What I think I love most about these decorations is the ability to use them again for her second birthday :) And of course for many more future birthdays. :)

This was a super low cost party. Just the cost of the tissue for the pompoms, the dollar or so for each mason jar, the tablecloth and the ingredients for the cake and goodies.

  3. Thanks a lot for these birthday party decoration ideas. I found this post very helpful. Actually I was in great need of such ideas for my daughter’s birthday party as we are shortlisting venues in Chicago and then would need to do all the planning.
