We recently celebrated my daughter's 1st birthday! Her birthday is only two days after mine, and we're both Aquarians, but I wanted to make sure her birthday was especially HERS and independent of mine.
Since she's my first child, and this was my first experience planning a birthday party for a child, I decided to call in the party experts.
Birthday in a Box, is an online party supply company that boxes up and ships amazing birthday party kits. I was excited to find that they are SO much more than just an online party supply store. They have fun party planning guides based on 100 different themes, complete with activity guides and suggestions for crafts, party favors and more.
To take the guess work out of party planning, there are many standard "birthday boxes" to choose from that are created for 8 guests, typically including:
- Cake plates
- Table Cover
- Plastic cutlery
- Two colors of streamers
- and Candles
Once on the Birthday in a Box website, I shopped by Theme, under 1st birthdays, and found a cute (and classy might I add) ladybug theme for my daughter's FIRST birthday.

After choosing which items to order, I spent some time looking over their First Birthday Party Ideas page which had some fantastic suggestions on how to make personalized invitations, how to select a location, fun party food and decorating ideas, even activities and party favor advice.
Here's some photos of how my little peanut's (or should I say "my little ladybug's") party turned out, thanks to Birthday in a Box!
Shopping at Birthday in a Box, was a completely hassle-free and positive experience from start to finish. For once, I didn't feel like the company was trying to get me to spend my entire life savings on my child's party. They actually offered altruistic advice and suggestions that they did not directly profit from (such as the party favors and party food suggestions).
