This darling “ON THE NIGHT YOU WERE BORN” BOOK INSPIRED FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Kelli Cross of Print & Cut Your Printables.

How cute is this party theme? What better way to honor a one year old than to remember the night/day they were born? There are lots of really great ideas in this party that would not only work as a first birthday party, but would also work perfectly for a sip and see baby shower.

My favorite “On The Night You Were Born” party ideas and elements from this cute first birthday celebration are:

  • The cute high chair banner
  • The “night and star” cakes
  • The darling star backdrop
  • The cookies in a glass jar
  • and MORE!

This is what Kelli said about planning the party- “The first time I read Nancy Tillman’s “On the Night You Were Born”, I was holding my three month old baby boy, Hudson.  The lines in the book brought tears to my eyes because they were so special…so magical…just like my beautiful baby.  When it came time to start planning his first birthday party, I knew I wanted something as sweet, unique, & as wonderful as he is.  “On the Night You Were Born” became the perfect inspiration for his celebration.  I have never seen a party inspired by this precious book so I had to do a lot of thinking to pull it together.  I wanted all of the elements of the party to represent things that were special to Hudson & my family.  We live in the south so Carolina style barbecue was the perfect menu.  The dessert table consisted of the most gorgeous blue ombre cake I have ever seen.  The baker perfectly matched the hues of the night sky in the book.  Grandma made her homemade sugar cookies into “H’s” and “1’s”.  I wanted the party favor to be a fun craft for young children that represented something about the night to perfectly tie into the theme.  The guests & their parents loved the personalized bug catchers!  The centerpieces were mason jars filled  with moss grass and white & yellow balloons to keep the look rustic yet young & fun!  There are elements from the book throughout such as the red cardinal, the polar bears, the night sky peeking in the window, & the stars.”

      I love this. Could you tell me where you got your decorations? Or where you got your supplies to make your decorations? I would love to do something similar. I read that book to my son almost every day. :)

        Hi Angela! I am so happy you love it! This book is just too perfect! My decorations:
        I painted a canvas blue with a sample size paint. I sprayed it with glitter hairspray to make it twinkle. I used an old window from my sisters barn. I cut stars with my die cutter. I made the front table garland with ribbon, burlap, & jute (jute is so much cheaper at a tractor supply store than craft store!) Here is the listing for the printables:
