BABY EINSTEIN 1st BIRTHDAY IDEAS
These 1st birthday ideas came from straight from a recent party in Telluride, Colorado.
Decorations for a first birthday should be bold and bright. Children love color so add it wherever you can.
just helped a friend put on this party. The little ones love it! To
welcome our guests and to help them find the house, we put a
personalized Baby Einstein Banner above the front door.
1st BIRTHDAY IDEAS
These 1st birthday ideas bring both color and fun to the first birthday party. We mixed red, blue, green, yellow and purple solid helium balloons with Baby Einstein Mylar balloons and it looked great.
We tied color coordinating curly ribbons onto each balloon and
placed them everywhere. There were balloons hanging from the ceiling,
on the wall, and we floated one on the back of each chair.
even weighted some down with this Baby Einstein Octoplush toy for a
table decoration and later for our little “one” to add to his Baby
Einstein toy collection.
We draped primary colored crate paper across the ceiling of the family
room, which was the main party area, and hung a Baby Einstein 1st
birthday banner across the doorway. 1st Birthday Ideas for Einstein are
Toys, toys, toys. Our birthday boy just
happens to be a true Baby Einstein as is his mom, so he has accumulated
lots of Baby Einstein toys in his first year. We scattered the toys
about for decoration and entertainment for the little ones. We hung a
few plush toys on strings from the ceiling and sat some on end tables.
We also placed some Baby Einstein activity toys and books in out of the way areas on the floor. But the big attraction was the Baby Einstein Animal Exploration Tunnel that we placed in the middle of the floor for the children to crawl through.
our birthday boy did not have the tunnel, I purchased it for him for
his birthday present and gave it to him prior to the party. It was
definitely worth the money spent. This was of the best 1st birthday
ideas we had.
1st BIRTHDAY IDEAS
The tables were so fun to decorate, we brought in two extra card tables
to fix up as well. We had a cake table, beverage table, snack and food
table and a gift table. 1st birthday ideas for these tables was
We covered the cake and beverage tables with a Baby Einstein Table Cover and on the other three used a solid red, blue and green cover.
Each table had a centerpiece. On the cake table, we added a Baby Einstein Mylar Balloon and a few solid balloons to a centerpiece from Birthday in a Box and created our own centerpieces on the four other tables.
Making wall decorations was fun and we let the birthday boy help. He had some great 1st birthday ideas. It
was easy. The caterpillar was made by painting circles of poster
board. We used a larger one for the head and then made antennae and a
tail out of poster board as well. Then we drew a face with a black
marker. You can also make one out of colored construction paper by
cutting a big yellow circle for the head and smaller red, blue, green
and purple circles for the body. Draw on eyes and a mouth. To make
antennas and a tail, you can use pipe cleaners or cut them out of
construction paper. This is a fun project to involve your child in.
We made large wall-size flashcards out of white poster boards. On each one we put a picture of a word, like: birthday cake, present and balloon and then had the word printed underneath.
We also had a picture of the birthday boy in his Baby Einstein Duck costume blown up and tacked it on the wall as well.
Of course no party is complete without a piñata. When trying to choose
between the Baby Einstein duck, monkey or lion pinatas, we just couldn’t
decide. They were all so fun and cute we opted for all three. One we
hung from the ceiling in the family room where the party mainly was,
one was hung next to the cake table and one we hung outside by the front
One other thing we did was to reserve a
wall for artwork. We taped up some Baby Einstein coloring pages our
birthday boy had colored and other artwork of his as well. Then, at the
end of craft time, we added his guest’s art to the mix and when the
party was over, we let each guest untape his or her artwork and take it
We also had each the children put their hand prints on one large white poster board using bright colored finger paints.
We wrote each child’s name beneath each print and displayed the
keepsake poster on the wall with the rest of the art. This will be a
tradition at each birthday party from now on.
weren’t sure about this last minute “art-wall” brainstorm, it turned out
to be a great 1st birthday idea as it enchanted the children to see
their own work on the wall. They were so proud.
The rule for
Baby Einstein decorating is that if it is bold and bright…use it! If it
is fun to look at or play with…use it! But the number one rule when it
comes to party decorating is to have fun and enjoy.

BABY EINSTEIN PARTY FAVORS
Giving out Baby Einstein first birthday party favors is a great way to end a great party.
First you will want to decide upon a container to put the treats in to get an idea of how many favors to include.
Baby Einstein treat bags and boxes come in all different shapes and sizes.
can also create your own by decorating primary colored sacks with Baby
Einstein stickers. Personalized stickers are available too. You can
even paint each child’s name on his or hers with a paint pen.
As far as what to put in the containers, we have tons of ideas.
Small plush animals and bathtub toys are fun to add and safe for all ages. Baby Einstein animal finger puppets, wind up toys and baby rattles are available too.
Little Einstein yo-yos and kaleidoscopes are great 1st birthday ideas that older guest will love as well.
love stickers so don’t forget Baby Einstein stickers. You can order
personalized stickers as well as magnets, buttons and an assortment of
other fun favors.
With any theme I always add all-around items such as small containers of play dough, bounce balls, tiny bubble sets and miniature books. I also include little coloring books and I purchase a large crayola package and put four or five crayons in each treat sack.
Snacks are good to add. Purchase prepackaged ones or divide your own into ziplock baggies. Yogurt bites, animal crackers and puffs are excellent for the little bitty ones. Gummy bear candies are good for older guests. You can also add Animal Craze fruit packaged snacks.
Preassembled favor sets are convenient and often very cost effective too.
With all these 1st birthday ideas you are sure to have as much fun
preparing the favors as the kids will have receiving them. Enjoy!
