Wild & One First Birthday Ideas
Oh wow. My sweet, feisty little girl is 1. Let’s Celebrate!
1 going on 20. I tried to think of what she might like to remember her first birthday by. She won’t remember how amazing the cake tasted. She won’t remember the hours I spent on her DIY party decorations. I hope she will LOVE these adorable photos of herself.
Little Miss Abigail is my youngest. Which means I’ve planned other 1st birthday parties (not to mention LOADS of weddings). I am a seasoned pro when it comes to shoveling cake in your mouth. Lol.
My main priority was photography. I wanted some really cute photos of my cake smashing kiddo. I cut way back on all the other decor and stress so I could focus on what would be needed to get some great photos of her.
You may have something else in mind. Maybe your little one loves books or a special stuffed animal. It really does not have to involve cake. Mine just happens to love to eat. I just happen enjoy baking, about twice a year. I am an awful baker. It looks like a chemistry experiment gone wrong in my kitchen for weeks. My husband loves to be my taste tester for all the dessert trial runs though.
Here is the breakdown of what you really need for an awesome 1st birthday party and of course some photos!
First Birthday Party Checklist:
- 1 Cute and Feisty 1 Year Old

- A Great Location (good lighting and all that photographer stuff)
- Friends & Family
- An Outfit, Naked Is Cute Too
- A Cake
- A Theme
- Decor, But Not Too Much
When it came to outfit and decor. If I loved a shop but they didn’t have the exact thing I wanted I just asked. Each of these Etsy shops were AMAZING to work with!
