It's inevitable.  No matter how hard you wish to stop it, that baby of yours is going to grow up.  It's one of the saddest and most awesome parts of parenting, all rolled into one.  It's hard to say goodbye to those newborn snuggles, but it's thrilling to watch your baby grow and develop.  The first birthday milestone is a monumental one; the change you will witness in your little one during that first year is unbelievable.  The one year marker is definitely a cause to celebrate!

If your little one's first birthday bash is fast approaching, we thought we'd save you the endless hours of perusing Pinterest and put in the leg work for you.  Below, you'll find some of the cutest first birthday party themes imaginable.  And, as an added bonus, we've paired each one with a set of our bandana bibs--the perfect accessory to keep baby drool free on his or her special day. 

First up, a party fit for a Parisian princess.  For starters, French pastries make pretty sensational party food, but beyond the appeal of crepes and macaroons, this Paris party theme is pretty much just plain gorgeous.  Our Paris Set will provide the perfect accompaniment to the birthday girl's outfit on this special day.

We love the idea of giving the traditional girly-girl pink first birthday party a breath of fresh air.  Which is why this darling flamingo themed event piqued our interest.  All the pink a little girl could ever ask for with a serious tropical twist?  Yes, please!  We can't help but envision the birthday girl sporting a bibdana from our Jewel Set on the big day.

Last, but certainly not least, is a vintage travel theme for a little gentleman.  Airplanes, trains, hot air balloons, bicycles--the possibilities are truly endless when it comes to this adorable party scape.  The fabrics in our Cruise Set are a perfect accessory for the birthday boy.
