The great thing about a first birthday party is that as a parent you can still decorate it to your heart's content! A first birthday party is just as much a celebration of the parents' making it through that difficult year as it is about the child. So pick a theme and go nuts! We love this Sesame Street themed party for sweet Aya (especially since it involves a balloon artist)
