How to Plan Your Baby Boys First Birthday Party

1- Select the date! 
Will you host your little guys first birthday party on his Birthday? Maybe the weekend before or after? Look at your schedule and pick a date that works for you best!

2 - Pick a theme!
The first step in planning your little ones first birthday is to find your perfect theme. Many mom's will plan the first birthday party by choosing a theme or monument that has special meaning to the family and incorporate those elements into the perfect first birthday theme for your baby boy!

Is your little one a wild one? Perhaps you will use a Wild One's first birthday theme for your little adventurer, or maybe daddy is his favourite super hero, so his day will be a superhero first birthday theme with dads favourite marvel super heros!

First Birthdays don't have to be based on special moments or specific elements, you can use your favourite color combinations such as various shades of blues or greens and use other colors that compliment these color tones. Do you or your little one have a favorite animal, t.v. show, obsession or treat? Selecting one of these favourites can make for fun and unique first birthday themes!
