Create a winter wonderland for your child

First birthday parties are major celebrations, and a winter wonderland party — or Winter ONEderland, if you prefer a play on words — is a fabulous way to celebrate your little one’s first full year. From sparkly snowflakes to cuddly winter animals, winter birthday parties are fun, exciting ways to celebrate with friends and family.

1st birthday party ideas start with a theme — and invitation

Let people know they’ll be walking into a winter wonderland from the minute they receive their invitation. Whether you plan on creating a sweet and sparkly party or a colorful, festive wonderland, you can find an invitation that sets the mood for the party — and lets everyone know you’ll be celebrating the sweetest snowflake around. We love the faux-chalkboard finish on the Winter ONEderland Invitation, available for personalization (Etsy, $16).

Dressing for a Winter ONEderland

Photo opportunities abound at a first birthday party, and there’s nothing cuter than a personalized outfit on the birthday boy or girl. The Boys’ First Birthday Outfit is the perfect thing to wear if you plan on doing a smash cake — adorable and machine-washable (Etsy, $27). The Personalized ONEderland Tutu outfit can be worn for cake smashing as well, but the tutu is photogenic enough that you might not want to change the birthday girl (Etsy, $83).

Make it a pajama party

When the temperature drops, nothing sounds cozier than a warm pair of pajamas — and there’s nothing cuter than babies in their jammies. Brandi, who you can like at Brandi Thompson Photography, invited guests to come in their pajamas and slippers for her daughter’s first birthday party. The Penguins and Pajamas party featured a gorgeous dessert table and snowflakes galore. Be sure to visit her blog to see all of her ideas, including the wording for the pajama party!

Make snowflakes sparkle with pretty pastels

The sparkle and glitter of snowflakes lends itself to a beautiful, pastel wonderland. The Winter Wonderland 1st Birthday at Kara’s Party Ideas is a gorgeous party filled with delicate details — and several of them are available in her party shop. The shimmering snowflake cookies and hot cocoa cup cozies are just two of the special 1st birthday party ideas.

Winter animals make adorable first birthday guests

Mariah at Giggles Galore put cuddly, winter animals on center stage at her Penguins and Polar Bears Winter ONEderland Birthday Party. If you’re planning a first birthday party that includes kids of all ages, you need to check out the party games she incorporated into the theme of the party — we love the upcycled bowling game! The blue and white color scheme is bright and cheerful, and each of her details are photogenic and fun — follow her on Instagram for more great ideas.
