BOY-THEMED FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

This darling first birthday party is full of "all things boy" and loaded with a clean, crisp style that would be perfect for so many other birthday party ideas and themes! Ngoc Nguyen Lay, of Sky Box Event Productions, planned and hosted this fun-filled party for her son's first birthday party. I love how Ngoc added so many "boy favorites" such as airplanes, boats, sandboxes, and more! Read on to hear more from Ngoc herself!

Theme/Design Idea: I was going for a modern but classic birthday party...
...with paper airplanes, newspaper boats,
 and all things boy! This party was created for my little rascal with
 dirty knees and frogs in his pockets.

Decor Details: just to give you an idea of the design
- custom 3 tier cake, cake stand (sandbox) on grass like rug with cloud
 backdrop
- dessert table with mini desserts and vintage milk jars
- custom paper goods
- goodie bags were milk and cookies packed in a classic lunch bag
- centerpieces: blue mason jars with playful yellow mums
- food table included finger foods for the kids: jenga french toast, pizza
 and club sandwiches
- paper airplane and newspaper boat folding station
- predicting career game and guessing station
The dessert table is beautiful, and the cake is fabulous!
How cute to add "grass" and a "sandbox" under the cake!

 

Lunch was served for the guests, and what a lovely display of choices!

"Jenga" French Toast stacks (above) and sandwiches are so creatively served!

There were lots of activities for the guests to enjoy! This play space is adorable and looks like so much fun!

They played a traditional "Predict the Career" game- I love this game! Guests were given

voting slips and asked to predict what career A.J. will choose!

It looks like A.J. may want to be a rockstar one day...he chose the microphone!

Ngoc also had directions and supplies for the children and parents to make paper airplanes...

 

...and NEWSPAPER BOATS!  How fun for everyone!

Favor Bags were brown bags with milk and cookies inside each bag~

What a wonderful, wonderful birthday party! I love all of the "boy" references throughout

the party and how beautifully designed and hosted it was! A fabulous celebration!

Thank you for sharing the fun with us, Ngoc!
