Planning the time for the first birthday is crucial. She'll probably be taking morning and afternoon naps when her birthday rolls around, so plan around these scheduled naps and consult with the parents of the invited children about their nap times so you can plan accordingly.

Perch the big hoot owl on her wall or or set it up to magically float in the air on one of our sparkling balloons. Whatever you choose, we have the decorations to make this day unforgettable.

Pom Pet Owl Kit
This gift is a fantastic way to encourage your child's creativity. With no glue required, these two googly-eyed owls come together easily and leave your little one with a sense of accomplishment and two new friends.
Try incorporating these fun phrases into your invitations, DIY decorations, and other pieces of the party!
"Let's make a deal, baby girl. We'll spoil you rotten if you promise to stop growing up so fast!"
"Next year you'll be twice your age!"
"Happy first birthday, now you might be old enough to sleep through the night!"
"Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, today you are one, next year you'll be two! Happy Birthday!"
"It's your party, take a nap if you want to!"
"It's okay if you like the wrapping paper more than my gift, you're 1!"
As much fun as her first birthday party is, naptime will inevitably come and her friends and family will have to leave. Be sure to send them home with something to hoot about with our owl-themed party favors. These gifts not only give everyone something to remember the big day with and make them excited for next year's celebration, they also show your little one's appreciation before she's able to say, “thank you.”
Since most of the cake ended up on someone's bib, it's nice to send guests on their way with a cupcake for later. Maybe this one is for adults, or maybe another 1-year-old friend who just didn't get enough the first time!
This pink and white checkered box has it all. An activity book with crayons to encourage creative thinking, a mini pinwheel, a party bubble bottle (which even adults love) and a plush toy owl. This is a party favor box that will be talked about for years to come!
An adorable memento of your little girl's first birthday, this cute little owl will be perched around for years to come. The little ones will love how soft it is, and those big precious eyes will bring smiles to children of all ages.
