Looking for a lovely 1st birthday party theme? How about a beautiful rock-a-bye baby party?
Based on the famous nursery rhyme, we used our rock-a-bye baby party supplies to create this beautiful party for 1st birthdays and baby showers. Read on for inspiration!
What you need for a rock-a-bye-baby party
Rocking horse invitations
Start by sending out your invitations (about six weeks in advance to make sure people don’t make plans that clash). These beautiful rocking horse invitations would set the tone for your rock-a-bye baby party perfectly – just look how cute they are!
The perfect tableware
Next, pick the perfect partyware to make sure you have all your essentials like plates, cups and napkins covered. We used our rock-a-bye-baby party supplies and stuck to a soft colour scheme of baby pink, blue and yellow.
Rocking horse cake stand
Every party needs a centrepiece and we absolutely adore this rocking horse cake stand. It’d be perfect for a rock-a-bye baby party (or any other baby occasion) and a lovely way to present cupcakes, sandwiches or other treats.
Rock-a-bye baby party food ideas
Chances are you’ll have a lot on your plate while you’re planning your rock-a-bye baby 1st birthday party, so keep your party food simple.
A lovely way to keep cupcakes on-theme is to choose icing that matches the décor and top each cake with a cute rock-a-bye baby cupcake topper.
Whether serving homemade or shop-bought cupcakes, wrapping each cake in a rock-a-bye baby cake wrap is another easy way to match your party food to your party decorations.
The finishing touches
How about decorating your glasses with these adorable rock-a-bye baby glass decorations? You could serve orange juice for the kids and Buck’s Fizz or prosecco for the adults!
You could even serve the kids’ drinks in cute mini milk bottles. Fill them with milkshake or juice and decorate them with these rock-a-bye baby paper straws.
