Before the pandemic, The Birthday had turned into A Whole Thing. Gone were the days of paper streamers and boxed cake. These birthday parties were perfectly curated vision boards come to life. Beautiful (if somewhat intimidating) affairs.

Then COVID hit. UGH. We weren’t really doing birthdays for a while. But now that every age group can be vaccinated, parties are back on the table, and I’m going to be honest here: I am excited, but I’m having a little trouble with reentry.

Beautifully curated, themed parties can be a little overwhelming. I’m a mom, not an event coordinator. I am BUSY, and I need some reliable help to get the party started.

Thankfully, Party City exists to be my dependable bestie coming in hot with all of the party-planning essentials I could ever need. With Party City, the hardest part of planning a birthday bash is choosing just one of their absolutely perfect themes as my “starter pack.”

I mean, you have to check out some of these amazing party options, starting off with...

An Adventure Party For Your Little Wild One

What could be more perfect for your free-spirited baby than a One Wild Adventure first birthday party? Obviously, you know that Party City has adorbs tableware and balloons, but did you know they also have, oh I don’t know, EVERYTHING ELSE? This cardboard camper cutout is the perfect backdrop for a photo op, and this felt crown is so cute, I cannot even stand it.
