Lil' Prince 1st Birthday Party

A first birthday is a once in a lifetime experience and a special milestone for you as a parent. We know your child is a true prince, so celebrate him with a 1st birthday party with a prince theme complete with princely decorations and party favors!
1st Birthday Prince Invitations
  • How about inviting your guests to go on a trip to a magic kingdom with a light blue boarding pass invitation!
  • Send out a "royal decree" to get your guests to RSVP!  Print your party info on a thin sheet of paper and attach a dowel rod at the top and bottom to form a scroll.  Mail these fun invites in a tube or hand them to guests in person.  Extra points if you dress up as the prince's "page"!
  • Cut crown shapes from gold glitter craft paper and write your party info on the back.  A fun and easy themed invite!
  • Of course, we have tons of kid's birthday party invitations and favors for you to choose from, too.

Make sure guests RSVP with a "Yes!" to your royal event - choose invite wording that matches your "formal" princely theme:

  • King Richard and Queen Sarah request your presence at their castle to celebrate Prince Alex's first birthday!
  • Our little prince George is turning 1!
  • Hear ye, hear ye!  His majesty and her highness cordially invite you to celebrate the prince's first royal event!  Prince Sean is turning 1!

Whatever you decide, send out your invitations 4-6 weeks in advance of your party. Make sure to let your guests know to dress like princes and princesses, too!

1st Birthday Prince Party Supplies and Birthday Decorations
Turn your party space into a castle with all sorts of blue and medieval theme decorations!  Make your guests feel like royalty the second they step through the "castle gate" by starting with your entrance:

  • Give your palace a princely touch by adding a balloon arch over your castle gate.  Blue and yellow latex balloons match the theme perfectly!
  • Greet the royalty arriving at your event with a personalized royal king or queen cutout!  Customize with a picture of the lil' prince or the host/hostess.  Makes for a great photo op!
  • Hang blue crepe paper around the room. It's a classic decoration!
  • Try creating a royal castle cutout that you can display and use to take pictures of the kids!

1st Birthday Prince Birthday Table
There are great blueparty supplies to help you turn your party into a royal event! Once you have the essentials, try some of these table decorating ideas:

  • A prince crown makes a great centerpiece for your prince's birthday party. Tie blue and yellow balloon bouquets to each one, or just have it sitting in the center of the table. Use pinata filler and candy as confetti surrounding it!
  • The centerpiece for the prince's table should be his 1st birthday smash cake, of course!  A cake in the shape of a crown covered in blue frosting is perfect for this royal theme.
If you're hosting a party with plenty of little princes and princesses, fill  bowls with dress up items and use them as centerpieces.  Wands, crowns, tiaras, and foam swords are great decorations and favors!
1st Birthday Prince Party Games and Activities
Whether the royalty at your prince's first birthday are young or old, it's important to keep them entertained with all sorts of fun games and activities:
  • Knights and ladies alike will love breaking open a dragon pinata!  Hand out foam swords, they'll soon defeat this might foe.
  • A medieval themed photobooth is sure to be a hit! Start with a king photo op and queen photo op, and make sure to have a bucket of fun props.  Capes, crowns, tiaras, and plastic weapons are perfect.  Print the pictures out at the end of the party for guests to take home as favors!
  • The prince's first cake smash should be the main event!  It's a great opportunity for family and friends to get those messy baby pictures.
