Winter is the BEST time to celebrate a first birthday! When else do you get a chance for such a great pun?
Winter ONEderland. So perfect.
That, and I love decorating with sparkles and snowflakes.
Who can say this high chair banner is anything but adorable? Purple, blue, and lacy rags make a wonderfully wintry background to the ONE on snowflakes.
Gather your tulle, cutouts, and baby clothespins at Michael’s today. Some assembly’s required.
You’re going to need a smash cake.
May I recommend this swirly beauty? The off-blue frosting roses look like a windy storm, and the scattered white snowflakes add to that effect.
Pop a few sugar snowflakes, or plastic cake accents, up top for the final, frosty touch.
Did I mention how glittery you get to be with this birthday theme?
Embrace the shimmer with an entire background of reflective silver.
A banner of WINTER ONEDERLAND in black makes for a good contrast, or one in your chosen party colors.
Besides sparkly, you’re also going to want some fluff. Snow’s soft. One-year-olds are soft.
As such, this feather Christmas tree has just been re-commissioned as a birthday tree.
Its boughs drift silently in an imagined breeze, atop a snow landscape and rustic lettering.
Leafless trees are poetically beautiful. Their bare, white branches entwine in artistic shapes and shadows.
Pose one with a few white roses for a wonderful centerpiece.
I’ve made a few tissue paper flowers in my day. They’re quick, cheap, and versatile.
I’ll bet you didn’t think they could work with a winter theme, though -right?
Hang a few the way they’re pictured here, with some snowflakes and silver. I think they remind me more of puffs of snow.
We all know the best part of cold weather is COCOA.
Your guests, and birthday star, will love picking mix-ins for theirs.
Use candy canes, marshmallows, chocolate chips, M&Ms, whipped cream, and wafer melts.
I knew, as soon as I saw this donette tree, that I had to include this food idea.
That, and I’m going to make one for our next party.
I mean, donuts. What else do you need to know? -Right. You might want to know how to make it.
Pick up a styrofoam cone over at the craft store, donettes at the grocery store (obviously), and skewers. Then, simply stab them all over the cone.
Another feature of winter is ice, but we probably don’t want that potential hazard inside.
Skip those frozen fractals all around by isolating them to a stick.
I’m talking SUGAR STICKS, which you can make yourself. You’ll need a few hours.
My favorite food idea on here are these snowflake and #1 cookies.
No, I can’t make them. I’m making that donette tree, remember?
Yes, I would commission a bakery to whip some up. What else says “first birthday,” “winter,” and “edible” all in one place?
