How To: Plan Your Little Ones 1st Birthday Party

Planning your child’s first birthday party can be really stressful, here at Pop Cloud HQ we’ve highlighted a handful of the most important parts to any party that we hope will help make your planning a bit less stressful.
Cake Smash Kit
Cake Smashes are essential for any first birthday party, they involve letting your little one loose on their birthday cake and having a photographer (normally mum or dad) to capture the special moment.
No need for a fancy background, you can purchase our Blue or Pink cake smash kits to use as the perfect backdrop. Be sure to have an alternative cake or some cupcakes to share with guests, as this cake may not be in ‘picture perfect’ after the smash…
You can even use our Cake Smash Kits for a pre-birthday photo shoot, and use the gorgeous pics for their 1st Birthday Party Invitations.
Invites are super important to let your guests know when and where the party is!
Make sure you plan ahead and create a list of family and friends to invite, we’d hate for Aunt Carol to be forgotten about.
We have our beautiful Little One invitations and our super cute Rock-A-Bye Baby Invitations that are perfect to send to your friends and family.
Keep the theme cool and cute with our pink and gold, or blue and gold colour schemes. Gold is one of the most popular party colours and we have a beautiful Gold and Pastel Tassel Garland that gives that WOW factor.
Our new DIY Rainbow Balloon Arch Kit is super easy to create yourself at home, and would make a gorgeous backdrop to go above the cake/present table!
Table Décor
Be sure to make sure you’ve stocked up on lots of party food/drinks, there’s nothing worse than having to pop to the shop and miss some of the party you’ve worked so hard to organise to get some more birthday snacks.
Our gorgeous Pick And Mix range of Pastel Gold Foiled Plates, Pink and Blue Foiled Napkins and Pastel Gold Foiled Cups, is great for tableware. The range has a gold foil design and perfectly matches any gold theme.

Blowing the candles out is the most important part of any cake, minus eating the delicious cake after of course!
We’ve got a great selection of Candles to choose from to match any cake. From Numbers to Tall Candles to Cake Fountains, we have it all!
Last but not least... Balloons!
What’s a party without balloons?
