Levi first birthday

So Levis first birthday is coming up. And I have absolutely no idea what I want to do. For Tysons first birthday we had a huge party and it ended up being a disaster! So I don't want a repeat of that! Do any of you ladies have some ideas for me? Like decorations, games, etc.... I am thinking a BBQ but I want to hear some ideas from all of you as well.

    Are you doing a theme? I always go with finger foods! appetizers, drinks, cake.
    vegetable/fruit tray, chips/crackers, dips. maybe a cheeseball or something similar. Don't waste money on fancy food. Also less stress, minimal cooking.

    I was thinking a Motorcycle theme. Or they have these cool decorations you can put his picture on. I haven't decided. For some reason this birthday is hard for me to plan. Maybe because I know there will be no more babies for me and that means no more first birthdays so I wanna make it super special.

      I would keep it simple. For Avery we chose primary colors for decorations. You could pick a cartoon character if you wanted too. We're doing ours at a local park because our house is too small. We're going to order sandwiches from Jimmy Johns and have some family members bring potato salad and chips. There won't be a lot of other little kids there so we're not doing any games. People can play around the park if they want.

        I stayed home for my daughter's first, and I think that was helpful. We had a bunch of family visiting, but it was in a familiar place, so she wasn't nearly as nervous as I expected her to be. Also, at home, we were able to keep her normal napping schedule intact, which made for a happier baby overall.
