I love a good birthday theme, especially for a first birthday! There have been super cute themes trending this year, so we’ll cover those today to inspire your own event. Here are the top trending first birthday themes for 2024!
Trending First Birthday Party Themes
1. My Berry First Birthday Theme
The berry first birthday theme is one of my favorites and works especially well for a spring or summer party (although this can be worked into any time during the year).
Strawberries are the usual berry of choice for this first birthday party theme. You can decorate the venue with shades of reds and pinks, and of course, plenty of strawberry-themed decor.

2. Wild One First Birthday Theme
I’m partial to the wild one first birthday party theme, because it’s the theme I used for my own son’s first birthday!
Decorate your venue with shades of browns and greens. Incorporate safari animal elements to elevate the event.
3. My First Rodeo Theme
This one is too cute! The My First Rodeo theme is great for any cowboy or cowgirl turning one year old! Add a bit of country, rustic charm, tons of cow print, and cowboy boots to tie the whole event together.
4. Winter ONEderland
Do you have a winter baby? If so, plan a magical winter ONEderland to celebrate this big milestone. You can bring in elements from the holidays, snowflake decor, or even go with a polar bear twist on the theme.

5. My BEARY First Birthday
There’s nothing cuter than a teddy bear theme! This is such a classic and it’s so perfect for a first birthday party! The My BEARY first birthday theme features teddy bear centerpieces and a neutral color palette with a pop of color. I usually see sage green, light pink, or shades of blue.
Here are some teddy bear centerpiece ideas to inspire your own event!
6. First Trip Around The Sun
The first trip around the sun birthday theme is another adorable idea, and would especially be perfect for a summer birthday. Decorate with bright, “sunny” colors and feature sunshine decorations for centerpieces, banners, and signs.
7. One Happy Camper
One Happy Camper is another adorable first birthday party theme! You can mix it with a woodland theme or just go full on camping with trail mix, forest decor, smores desserts, and more!
Your little one’s first birthday is such a huge milestone, so it’s so fun to create a fun, themed event to celebrate it. Regardless of which first birthday party themes you consider, you’ll be sure to remember it forever.
