Can't believe DS will be 1 on 12 August. Just wanted to know what everyone is doing/has done for 1st birthdays - party or no party, food, games etc. Haven't yet decided what to do so am looking for inspriation!

Trip to the farm.
Tea with family, birthday cake.

That sounds lovely! Anyone else done anything different?

Jess is 1 on the 24th and we are having a little family party.... cake, ice cream and a BBQ for the adults.

Had party for my 1 year old but it completely washed over her and really it was for me.

jessicaandbumpsmummy Sun 10-Jul-05 15:45:56

i think it is more for the adults.... why shouldnt i have a party to acknowledge what i went through a year ago!!!!!

DD2 is one on 16th July, and weather permitting we are going on a family day out to the zoo as she loves animals, followed by a family tea. We were going to have a bbq with lots of our (adult) friends over, but really that would have been for us rather than DD2, so we've decided to keep it simple.

DD is 1 on 16th July and she is having a big party with a bouncy castle - purely because all of her cousins are alot older than her so it will keep them occupied.
Then as it is my 21st a few days later we are going to have an adult party in the evening.

Have decided to keep the bouncy castle overnight, incase the adults fancy a go after a few drinks.

Great stuff. Wish I could fit a bouncy castle in my garden!! Was thinking of keeping it simple with cake and some food for the littl'uns, snacks for the mums and maybe a couple of games...But some mums I know are going all out to entertain and the pressure is on

Evie shares her bdat with my mum, so we will have a family party, probably here.

Gosh Cricket, didn't mean to sound like i was boasting .
Can't quite say anything right lately

I didn't think you were boasting - was very impressed! Mainly bec I want to have a go on one! Went to a first birthday party this afternoon and the garden was huge and had a ball pit, paddling pool, trampoline (full size), swing and one of those tunnel things for the babies to play in. Oh and a sand pit too! Crumbs! Sam loved it.
