Cutest First Birthday Ideas From Instagram


First birthdays are important, even if your child won’t remember it! Not only does the milestone mark how much your child has grown, but how much you, as parents, have grown as well.

To throw your baby the cutest first birthday ever, we scoured Instagram for some brilliant ideas. Have a look below and start planning!

Buy a special party outfit.

Set an adorable theme.

Girls could do a nautical theme as well! I'm envisioning a color scheme of navy, lilac and pops of pink and/or gold... ⚓️💕💜✨
