Well, I don’t know how this happened, but my baby girl is now 9 months! I literally say this every month, but I can’t help it!
My daughter’s birthday is in the beginning of December. She was due on Thanksgiving, but came late. When I was younger I remember thinking, I don’t want to have a baby in December because I don’t want his or her birthday to get overlooked with Christmas! Well, babies have a funny way of coming when they want, so that is that. Haha!
If you read my post about my son’s first birthday party theme, Dr. Seuss’ Oh, The Places You’ll Go!, you’ll know that I have already started to think about my daughter’s first birthday. I don’t like to be overwhelmed (somehow I still always am), so I’ve tried to start brain storming well in advance for her birthday theme. Oh, and because it’s super fun to plan a birthday party theme!
The majority of the time, the first place I like to look when planning a kid’s birthday party is PLATES! It’s such a good jumping off point. Plates are the key elements in a party theme in my opinion, with everything else stemming from those little guys.
Nowadays it’s tough, because there are SO many adorable options for paper plates! Sigh.
When do you stop looking! I’d say that 20 is a good place to stop…wink wink…or when you have found “the one.”
I don’t have a particular theme in mind, so I letting the plates speak to me and help me chose a theme. I know that I want something colorful that gives a happy vibe. I’m not really sure what other vibe I’d be going for at a first birthday party, but to each their own!
I’m in LOVE with all of these plates. Obviously. But since I have to narrow them down, here are my thoughts though:
- some of them are a bit sophisticated…but then again my daughter is quite the cosmopolitan 9 month old
- some of them are a little summer-y, but that might be nice to have in the winter
- some of them aren’t colorful by themselves, but I could add other accessories to make the party bright and cheery
So…you see my problem. Looks like I’ll have to think on this a little more! While I’m thinking, just click on the number under the source details for a closer look at each plate!
