Xio of Mint Daisy Design Studio:To me a first birthday should be colorful and fun so when planning my son’s first birthday I knew the direction I wanted to take. I got inspired by how much he loved playing his toy instruments and how music always makes him happy. I had seen the music theme done before but I wanted to give it a bright, colorful and modern spin. I chose a blue, green & orange color scheme with splashes of yellow and red. To style the dessert table I used some of William’s favorite toy instruments, a blue letter “W” ( that usually hangs on our playroom’s wall) and some wooden blocks spelling out the word “music.” I love how they give the table that baby-ish feel. We served cupcakes, fruit kabobs, mini brownies garnished with a fresh raspberry, a smash cake, instrument shaped cookies and chocolate covered marshmallows with sprinkles. We also had  mini snack cups filled with yogurt melts, veggie sticks, fruit puffs and baked goldfish. Cheese cubes on appetizer forks were also served.

The Party was held at a local coffee shop called Cartwheels and Coffee and was the perfect location for the party. It has a modern and bright decor that I just loved. The kids enjoyed an indoor play area, a train table and a dress up area with a little stage. So adorable! We also hired someone to do a little music class and the kids had the chance to play various instruments.

I found some bright colored plastic baskets in the dollar bins at Target and thought they would fit perfect into the color scheme of our party. We filled the baskets with an echo microphone, a tambourine, a flute, mini play dough, bubbles and a homemade guitar crayon. For the babies attending the party we filled some clear cellophane bags with a set of maracas, a tambourine and bubbles. Everyone LOVED their goodie bags! Each child also received an instrument shaped cookie and helium filled balloon at the end of the party.

I loved creating this party for my sweet little boy. Even though he won’t remember it, I still wanted to make it special because I feel so blessed to be his mommy. Plus, we’ll always have the pictures and memories of the great time we had.”

    1. Hello!
      This is such a fun theme! I am sure your daughter’s party will be adorable. I got the instruments at Party City and the echo microphones are from Target. Hope this helps, good luck!

        I love this party – what a great theme. I was looking for some ideas for my son’s 2nd party – he loves to dance and sing so I thought a music theme would be fitting. What did your invitations look like?

            Cute Sarah! Where did you get the ideas for the food names? Too cute! I need some musical names for the foods I’m using

          3. Thanks Margaret Ann. To be honest, I made the food names up on a whim. Try to think of instruments, music terms, and songs.
            Here are some musical terms that may inspire ideas…

            Piano looking finger sandwiches alternate using white and wheat bread would be cute.
            Good luck!

  6. Could you tell me where you ordered the cellophane bags? They look like the perfect size. Thanks!

  7. I’m doing this theme for my son’s 1st bday, too, for the exact same reasons as you! Thanks for some good ideas! :)
