First birthday themes for your baby’s first birthday party need to be easily recognizable to your baby then they will also get excited if they see they favorite character.
Make sure to have the hankies ready for when they see the room for the first time and shout duck or ball. When our son saw the giraffes on his party decorations he shouted cat, still makes me laugh thinking about it!

Colors are also a good choice for a theme, you could have lots of colors by theming the party with rainbows or pick a nice bright color combination that will dazzle.
