Animal Themed 1st Birthday Party Ideas

The last year may have gone by so quickly and it is time to celebrate the little bubs’ first birthday! If he or she loves animals, then we have a few 1st birthday party ideas that focus on animals to create a fun look for the toddlers and the adults too! This week we look at two favourite themes that incorporate animals into the design and styling. The best part about both these birthday party themes is that they can be styled uniquely each time with the various design options being available.


Woodland Animals Theme


A woodland animals theme would be ideal especially if your little one love the little critters! Even Martha Stewart helped put together a delightful first birthday party theme for her granddaughter’s first birthday party!

Animal themed birthday woodland creatures sugar cookies

We loved the idea of having beautifully done up sugar cookies for the little ones (and not so little ones) to enjoy!

Animal themed birthday table decor setting

These table settings are just adorable. Featuring animal figurines and forest inspired such as moss, pinecones and pebbles, makes it very authentic and sophisticated.

We also love incorporating soft toys in the decor as it is a toddler’s birthday party and makes it cute and cuddly!

Circus is in Town

We love this theme because of the possibilities of fun, especially if you are looking at a dress up party for the little invitees!

Consider this – with every party invitation, you let the kids who are invited to the party RSVP back their favourite animals from a list (and their dress size with a little help from mum and dad)! When they get to the party, they get to wear an animal onesie in their size! The birthday girl or boy could be the Ringmaster!


As it is the first birthday invitation make sure to get a fabulous picture (such as the one pictured above in the Ringmaster costume) and use it to make it a keepsake photo birthday invite!


Another choice of invite would be to focus on the animals itself. This is ideal if your little one loves Curious George!
