What kind of things did you plan for your kids first birthday? Im doing a Minni mouse theme, the invite list is about 40. My boyfriend intimidate family alone are about 25 of those.
Its in April and I plan on doing a birthday party from like 1-4, just food and family to celebrate her 1st birthday. However I think my mom is trying to talk to me out of actually having a birthday party, tells me that no one has a big party the first birthday, people just rent out places like pizza hut and let them do the decorating/ect and I will be going over board for her first birthday (not really sure on what, food/cake/decorations??) ...I think the first birthday like any other is important and have been excited planning it, I realize she wont remember but its still a big deal . Jw what you think.

The picture didn't show up :( I paid a friend to make some cupcakes and a smash cake I found on pintrest that's minnie mouse but that's really all we are doing 'theme' wise. We are not going to decorate because she won't remember lol I might put a banner up or something though.

I had a little family birthday "party". she had her own "cake" so she could do whatever she wanted to it, of course she dove her face into it. lol it was the first time she ever had anything sweet. I blew up a ton of balloons but left them on the ground so she could play. But sinse she loves fish, i took her to sea world..she loved it. obviously she had no idea that it was for her b-day but I did it just bc I could & nobody else I know has little kids.

ohh bummer about the pic, ill try again but it probably wont if it didnt the first time. Yeah Im thinking of just ordering some minni mouse balloons off e bay which will be cheap and maybe a banner as well. The cake is the big thing, the cake im doing is a 2 teer cake (spelling sorry) so the cupcakes will be for her to "smash" might make a little cake out of it or something.

The cupcakes are going to have buttercream frosting, m&m's for the dots and then grasshopper cookies and just yellow cake mix. My friend is doing 60 cupcakes and the smash cake for $80.
