This post is courtesy of our contributor Dawn of Revel & GlitterCan you believe it’s January? I love to kick off every New Year talking about my favorite first, the First Birthday party. There are so many fun ideas to use to inspire your party theme! If your guest list consists of littles, simple décor and activities, fun snacks and a great smash cake are enough to make it enjoyable.

Bon Voyage

Since infancy ends at one year, say bon voyage to those days! The Bon Voyage Farewell is an online invitation and free for a limited time. Although my Bon Voyage party is New Year’s themed, there are lots of fun elements you can be inspired by, especially for a winter birthday.

Time Flies

Doesn’t it? Celebrate the culmination of a year of changes with the luggage-tag inspired Flying High invite. I love paper planes for party décor; Le Partie Sugar did an amazing job incorporating it into her party décor.
