Baby’s first year is a wild ride, so it’s little wonder that choosing a ‘wild one’ first birthday party theme is so popular. Queensland mum Michelle put together an epic woodlands wild one-themed birthday for her daughter Amelia to celebrate the special milestone.
Michelle told Mum’s Grapevine that the first birthday party was months in the making, but well worth the effort.
She said choosing the woodlands wild one theme was a no-brainer, “My daughter is wild at times!” With children between the ages of one month to eight years old attending, the clever mum made sure everyone was catered for and entertained.
Now get out the streamers and pop on your party hats, we’re taking you to Amelia’s woodlands wild one first birthday party.
A Woodlands Wild One First Birthday Party
With 35 guests attending, Michelle decided to host the party at Brisbane’s Hotel HQ. After being born during Covid-19 lockdown, she wanted to give Amelia a party to remember!
The children were kept entertained with age-appropriate activities including a ball pit, playdough and rocker. Guests snacked on savoury treats including mini burgers and pizzas, before unleashing on the fully laden sweet table. And it was all topped off with a delicious woodlands birthday cake.
Michelle spent many hours crafting most of the woodland-themed decor, only outsourcing the cookies and cake. She designed and printed the wraps for the Aldi chocolate bars she used as party favours. Her tip: Create the image by dividing a Word document into three even rectangles and don’t forget to rotate/flip the non-centre image.
We love the sweet touches in this adorable party – including headbands for guests and a beautiful photo wall.
