Does she like any particular songs or nursery rhymes you could base a theme on? - I've done Old MacDonald in the past. Can you just do an overload of pink/purple celebrating our little girl frilliness rather than an actual theme? My daughter is the same age (born the 13th of oct) and we're doing a princess theme thing - but she is the first girl after three boys so the princess thing is big here ;)

I had a Curious George at the Circus birthday party for my daughter's 1st. It was a huge success and I have left over decorations, party favors, hats, etc I would give you a deal on. I also made her invitations and they turned out great. Let me know if you are interested and I will send you pictures.

my son just had his first birthday party in July and it was a big hit. His favorite things, then were balls and bubbles. So, we had a bubbles and balls party. At this age they can't handle a lot of structure so our activities definitely were not structured. I just collected all kinds of different sized balls preceeding the party and dumped them all out at once for all the kids to play with. They LOVED it. After that I passed out all kinds of different bubble blowing devices to the parents and older guests and we blew all different sizes of bubbles at them. It was really a lot of fun and the kids really enjoyed it. I made the invitations also, in a circle shape (because balls and bubbles are circular). I got the template from the martha stewart website (the kids magazine link). She has some really good ideas on her site. I baked the cake in a bowl so that it was round like a ball on top and cut all the kid snacks into circular shapes. Sorry, to be so wordy, I obviously enjoyed doing his party. I would just find a couple of things that your daughter is really excited about right now, and make that your theme. Its so much fun to do, really. Enjoy it.
