We all have to admit that a first birthday party is a little more exciting for the parents, family and family friends than it is (at least initially) for the guest of honour! And here lies, in my opinion, the gem. First birthday parties are a great excuse to have your favourite people gather to celebrate, and they may or may not have little ones in tow. The guest list takes care of the menu, drinks selection and music. No Ham Sandwiches or mini pizza, no squash or lemonade, no Disney soundtracks - well, maybe one or two Moana classics!
