Oh Baby! Modern Animal 1st Birthday Party

As part of my Oh Baby feature I ask readers to submit baby shower or party themes they need help planning. If you have the general theme idea, I'm happy to put together an inspiration board to help get you started. Today's post is in response to an email from Danielle who wants to plan a 1st birthday based on these modern animal flash cards from MoMa. She mentioned they would be great as tabletop decor but they would also function as unique place cards or even as the invitations if you print the details on card stock and attach to the back. Other fun elements to these them could include animal print balloons and animal-themed cupcakes. These animal nose cups are realistic and provide a bit of whimsical humor- kids in attendance will definitely get a kick out of these! Lastly, give out animal adorned favor bags to serve as a great reminder of the event.

I've also been to a toddler's birthday where they rented a petting zoo, and the kids went wild over all of the animals.

Make some of the animals out of balloons. Tie together small green balloons to make the inchworm from the cards, etc.

I found the picture on flickr user hyojin605's photostream. They do look like she/he made them. Here is the link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/je143pio/2885771983/

I'll see what I can do for a Crayola/color-themed 1st birthday! :) I'm out of town this weekend but should be able to get something up in the first half of the week.

What about the cupcakes - I'm going with the Eric Carle theme for my son's first birthday and I'm assuming those are just custome made... but by whom?

Thanks for the inspiration - I love all your ideas as well!

Hi Yvonne,

I found the cupcakes here: http://frazicake.wordpress.com/category/cupcakes/. They were made by Frazi's Cakes.

Cheers,

I have just entered the blogging world and I love yours! The inspiration boards are so much fun! I am loving these cute ideas for an Animal Party. I'm having a Rainforest/Jungle (Diego inspired) 4th birthday party for my son in May. Any ideas? Thanks for the inspiration!
