Other Great Ideas for Making 1st Birthday Invitations

First Birthday Invitations with Monthly Progress

A great idea for your little one is to make a party using pictures of the baby's progress on a monthly basis.

Start with month 1, and add a picture of the baby each month until you reach 12 (the birthday month). You can even have fun adding foods that look like the kind of thing that baby ate during that month, and add a few fun pictures on the invitation.

Yellow Birthday Theme

Yellow is a very non-gender specific theme for a party, meaning that you can do it for both boys and girls. You can have yellow muffins, the yellow cakes, the yellow balloons and streamers, and, of course, bright yellow first birthday invitations sent out to all the guests.

1st Birthday Theme with the Favorite Book

If your child has a specific book that they love, why not throw a party using those book characters? Whether it's Winnie the Pooh, Paddington Bear, Dora the Explorer, Curious George, or any other character, it should be easy to find all kinds of clip art online for the invitations.

Fun Baby Birthday Invitations Your Little One Can Make ...

It's Doesn't Get Anymore Personalized Than That!!

If you want to have the little one get involved directly in the making of their own first birthday party invitations, you will find that it will be a fun activity that you can both participate in.

Here are some fun first birthday invitations that your baby can - quite literally - have a hand in:

Dried Goods on Birthday Invitations

Dried goods like pasta on baby birthday invitations.Babies love playing with dried goods, such as noodles, beans, and all the rest. You can have baby help to make their own card by having them dip the noodles into cups with different watercolors of paint, or they can select the beans to be used.

Baby Prints

When baby wants to make his or her own card, they can lend a hand or a foot to the project. All you have to do for the birthday card is give baby a blank piece of white paper, dip both hands, both feet, or one and one into a bit of finger paints, and your invites are ready to go with a bit of text added (by Mommy of course!).

Fun First Birthday Invitation Wording to Use on Your Invites

If you are making your own invitations with your child, here are some fun first birthday invitation wording you can use directly on your first birthday party invitations:

  • Laughing, crawling, growing up fast … Since she arrived a year has passed. So join us for cake, food, and fun, Let's celebrate…_____ is one

  • Swing on by and join the fun, Our little Monkey is turning one! Please join us as we monkey around for ___'s first birthday!

  • Crawling, talking, and growing up fast…since I arrived, a year has passed. Come celebrate me turning one!

  • The year flew by, it went so fast, but we've had fun; its been a blast!

  • It's been a very exciting year full of joy, love and fun. We hope you'll celebrate with us as our little (girl or boy) turns one!

  • Come one, come all and join the fun! Our baby Einstein is turning 1!

  • I learned to laugh and squeal, then sit and stand, and I can walk now if you hold my hand. But the fun has only just begun, lookout world, I'm turning one!
