What are some classic ideas for first birthday parties? A princess themed party is great for a one year old girl. Most party supply stores sell party goods and decorations featuring princesses. Bake your own crown shaped cookies and decorate them in pink, purple, and gold with the birthday girl's initials to make the party personalized. Little boys love Thomas the Train! Create your own Thomas themed birthday party by decorating in red, white, and blue. Send out invitations that say "All Aboard for Joey's' Birthday Party."
