Celestial Themes for Your Little Star's First Birthday

Can you believe that your baby is turning one? Where have the last 12 months gone? As much as you’re going to miss those baby moments, you have lots to look forward to now that your sweetie has reached a new milestone…  and the journey only gets better from here!

How about a party inspired by one of their first favorite songs – Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star? After all, it’s that little twinkle in your baby’s eyes that you love the most. Also, why wish upon a star when you can wish on a whole constellation at the party?

We went a little crazy on Pinterest looking for ideas. There are some seriously gorgeous ways to celebrate with a star-studded party, and we’ve compiled a ton of photos (so you don’t have to!):

The sweet colors, the fun décor, and the overall endearing vibe of this “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” birthday party is certainly a sight to see.

The team at Pretty My Party shared this adorable celebration, which was put together by the birthday girl’s mom. This dessert table display is seriously fabulous!

With a cake so lovely, you almost don’t want to slice it up and eat it. The name banner across the top is so creative and fun! And that golden star with the cutout “1”? ORDERING THIS CAKE RIGHT NOW!

The pink and blue color combo keeps up the theme, and keeps things from being overly-girly.

As for decor, they did a wonderful job of incorporating the star theme without going overboard.

It’s amazing how much those stars on the soda bucket add to the whole look. Such a simple idea can make a huge difference!

And the strand of stars hanging across the mirror keeps things consistent with the color theme, while adding just enough pizazz to brighten up the room.

Okay, how adorable are these goody bags? Each one has a gold star embellishment and a star-shaped “thank you” note.

And those gold star wands and hanging ribbons are so chic. Talk about a sophisticated party favor! 

This pink & gold color combination is sweet and youthful, and the photo of the baby in the center is a fabulous way to personalize the space. This party, thrown by mama blogger The Flight Wife, is all about the small details.

These miniature star-topped cupcakes are absolutely adorable. The pink frosting and the gold wrappers totally keep the color scheme going. This display is just precious! (And again, looks way too good to eat.)

This party is by mom blogger and interior designer Kristen KarsonCheck out the stunning table! I love how she incorporated the black night sky in her theme both with the handwritten sign, and the star-printed paper used as a table cloth. It provides a gorgeous contrast against the more pastel-colored accents.

The detail on this cake is out of this world! The petal-like frosting, the colors, the shooting star topper– if this doesn’t guarantee that the birthday gal’s wishes will come true, I don’t know what will!

Starry sandwiches? Heading to the market to buy my own star-shaped cookie cutters. Also, love the star toothpicks. You get your sandwich and a pretty PB&J-free smile, all while keeping with the party theme. What a fun way to turn a simple snack into something so festive. Finger foods never looked so stellar!

Star shaped chips. ‘Nuff said.

But seriously, we all need to step up our chip game. No more Cheetos. Now that I think about it, Cheetos are kind of shaped like logs of...

Who said party favors need to be plastic and ugly? These gorgeous star-print bows are so elegant, and they’re practical – this is something guests can actually use, and won’t end up in the trash a few days post-party.

Hello Lidy threw this twinkling 1st birthday bash for her little guy– the star of the party! This star-shaped cake is exquisite.  It’s simple with its white frosting and minimal toppings… but it’s a stunner!

Check out the hand-drawn backdrop and “treats” sign– lovely personal touches. Also, rock candies in the party’s color theme.

If you don’t like stressing out over the small details, just get a huge accent piece!  Hanging right next to a gold star, this balloon is probably quite the sight for the birthday boy and his buddies– it’s even bigger than him!
