Choosing a theme for your baby boy's first birthday is fun and exciting! But sometimes, it's hard to find an outfit to perfectly match the vision you have for his whole party.   

In this blog post, we'll go over some tips and ideas for choosing the perfect first birthday theme for your baby boy - and also how to design a custom 1st birthday outfit to match your theme!

1. Choose a Color Scheme

The first thing you'll want to think about is your color scheme. Do you love neutrals? Or classic baby blue for boys? Or bright rainbow colors?

Our custom 1st birthday outfit designer is perfect for working for any color scheme you have in mind! Here's a few ideas based on colors:

  • Rainbow

  • Classic baby blue

  • Neutrals

2. Consider Your Baby's Interests

Another thing you may want to consider when choosing a first birthday theme is your baby's interests. Even though your little one may not be able to talk, you know they have their favorites! Do they have a favorite toy or character? Do they love animals or vehicles? 

With our custom birthday outfit designer, you can make an outfit around any color and theme. 

Let's say you want to have natural colors like brown and green - but you want to make them work with something baby loves. 

Here's a few ideas to turn brown and green into many different themes:

  • Garbage Trucks

  • Dinosaurs

  • Safari or zoo


3. Think About the Season

Choosing a theme that aligns with the season of your baby boy's first birthday is a fun idea.  Or, you could choose a holiday season, too!

Here's a few ideas, with some outfits made with our custom birthday outfit designer to match them:

  • Summer: Tropical or Nautical

  • Fall: harvest or pumpkin patch theme

  • Winter: Snow or winter onederland

  • Spring: Bee Day, Some Bunny is One

4. Consider Your Party Venue

The party venue can also provide inspiration for a first birthday theme.  The custom cake smash outfit tool can help you make a perfect outfit to go with themes like:

  • If you're hosting the party at a park, you could choose a picnic or outdoor adventure theme.
  • If you're hosting the party at a local children's museum, you could choose a science or exploration theme. 
  • If you're hosting the party at an aquarium, you could choose a shark theme.


5. Choose a theme around his nickname

Finally, you could choose a first birthday theme that matches his nickname.  Many babies have silly nicknames that no one understand but your family, but you might be able to turn it into a theme.  And even if not, you could always choose to personalize his outfit with the nickname instead.

Here's a few examples, and how to design a custom 1st birthday outfitaround them:

  • Baby Monster

  • Bear

In conclusion, choosing a first birthday theme for your baby boy is a personal and special decision! You are creating a memorable celebration that reflects your family's personality. We make it easy to get a cake smash outfit  that will match your vision.  Your little one will undoubtedly be the star of the show, no matter what theme you choose!
