Happy Birthday to your little one. Turning one is such a big milestone.
Keep in mind that the first birthday is one that your child could care less about, so keep it simple. Do you have a friend or relative with a nice yard. Have cake and simple munchies. Let the family have a nice day and celebrate with you. We just did this for my grandson and it was terrific. He got to run around with other kids and have his traditional cake. No one was exhausted and and all the family and close friends were included. I guess bottom line I am saying keep it simple. Save the lavish bashes for when your child is older. Thats the time for Chuckie Cheese etc. Have fun!

Although I agree with the other posters that baby's 1st birthday party can be low-key, I thought of My Gym when I read your post. It's across from the Puente Hills Mall on Colima, clean, air-conditioned (something to think about when you're throwing a summer party) and the staff is genuinely so nice. You can bring your own food, and the cost of renting the facility (maybe $325?) includes invites for 25 kids and clean up. We had our son's 3rd birthday party there and brought pizza and drinks from Costco. I hope this helps.

I know a place and it is fun for kids and adults. It's called Adventure City in Stanton just down the street from knott's berry farm. I used to take my daughter there when she was little and it was fun.

Actually your home is the best place. Don't invite too many people so it will not be overwelming to the baby or you. The little ones can play with baby toys (they really only parallel play at that age. Also, they can be put down for naps if needed.
The party should be for the baby...just a few presents, family, and simple meal (if any) or cake only.

We had our son's at home. We did a brunch. Most everything could be made ahead of time and that which could not got popped in the oven. I had plenty of time to visit with guests and I scheduled it between his two naps. Worked very well.
