Farm Themed First Birthday

Chelsea PellegrinoContributor

Having a baby brings so many milestones, but few are as exciting as baby's first birthday! Sometimes it's hard to settle on a theme that's appropriate for little ones, yet still fun for all other guests too. If you're having trouble deciding the décor, look no further than this adorable farm theme!

We absolutely love the way birthday girl Sofia's barnyard bash turned out. Take a look at the pictures sent over by photographer Amanda Costa to get some inspiration for your own party!

The great part about this theme is that you can find decorations nearly anywhere! Faux grass, artificial ivy and even hay can bring a farmhouse feel to any venue. If you really want to bring the theme to life, add some party animals or a petting zoo! Hiring a professional to bring along a few live four-legged friends can truly make the day unforgettable. If the venue isn't animal friendly, a balloon twister can create some creatures that don't require any maintenance!

The special details are what can really set the  mooo-d of this party. For instance, instead of serving snacks in your typical plastic bowl, opt for small potato sacks or straw hats! Mini jam or mason jars can hold adorable personal-sized servings of desserts.

Sweets are always a party favorite. Top cupcakes with animal cutouts, and give guests goodies in shapes of things you'd find on a farm. Think fruit snacks, flower lollipops, or even gummy worms!
Our favorite part of Sofia's barnyard bash just might be the cake. Guests are sure to 'pig out' on this chocolate covered creation made to look like a muddy field! So, if you want to throw a themed bash for your little one's first birthday, don't chicken out! Party goers young and old will love the charm of this farm theme. Fun animals and unique details are sure to make this milestone a memorable one!
