It’s crawfish season in the south which means a crawfish first birthday party is a theme you NEED. Here’s a theme you can focus on to make that pinching feeling in the back of your throat about your baby growing up turn into sheer JOY at how cute the birthday party is going to be!
Tip when shopping for a crawfish first birthday party online
There’s lots to choose from if you’re shopping local. I’ll share some of my personal local options below.
With larger suppliers, like amazon, for things like balloons you might find yourself missing a few items if you use the word “crawfish”. If that’s the case, check out what “lobster” decor you can find online.
At the end of the day, if it’s cute no one is really going to notice the small differences between a lobster or a crawfish. Especially when we’re talking about 2-D-ish things like emojis & balloons.
For a crawfish first birthday party we kept it as basic as possible with:
- Red (mud bug color)
- Light & Dark Yellow (seasoning)
- Blue (water? easy picnic supplies?)
- White (an easy staple to work into decor)
- Black (optional)
It goes without saying, but you’ll likely have a crawfish boil if you’re hosting a party like this.
Just in case, we’re going to include some crawfish recipes for anyone looking for other mud bug specific options!
