1st Birthday Theme for March Babies: Lucky One Birthday

Can you believe your baby is about to turn one ?! What better way to celebrate your babe born close to St. Patrick's Day than with a Lucky One Birthday theme?! This festive party theme combines the joy of your child's milestone with the luck and charm of the Irish holiday. From decorations to activities and treats, here's how to throw an unforgettable celebration for your little leprechaun.

Lucky One Birthday


  1. Green and Gold Everywhere: Deck out your party space with green and gold decorations to capture the essence of St. Patrick's Day. Think green balloons, gold streamers, and shamrock-shaped confetti scattered on tables.

  2. Rainbows and Pot of Gold: Incorporate rainbow-themed decor, with a special focus on a "pot of gold" at the end. You can even have a coloring tablecloth personalized for the birthday babe and choose to hang it on the wall as a cogroup coloring activity!.

  3. Shamrocks Galore: Shamrocks are synonymous with St. Patrick's Day, so use them liberally in your decorations. Hang paper shamrocks from the ceiling, scatter them across tables, and even incorporate them into your food and drinks.


  1. Pin the Tail on the Leprechaun: Put a St. Patrick's Day twist on the classic party game by playing "Pin the Tail on the Leprechaun." Create a large poster of a leprechaun without a tail, blindfold the children, and let them try to pin the tail in the right spot.

  2. Treasure Hunt: Organize a treasure hunt for gold coins or hidden treasures around your party venue or home. Provide clues written in rhyme to add to the festive atmosphere.

  3. Craft Corner: Set up a craft corner where kids can make their own shamrock headbands, leprechaun hats, or rainbow-themed artwork. Provide plenty of green and gold craft supplies to spark their creativity and make sure to add a themed coloring runner to the table to make cleaning up mess-free!

Food and Drinks:

  1. Rainbow Fruit Platter: Create a colorful rainbow fruit platter with strawberries, oranges, pineapple, kiwi, blueberries, and purple grapes. Arrange the fruit in the shape of a rainbow on a large platter for a healthy and visually appealing snack option.

  2. Potato Bar: Serve up a DIY potato bar with baked potatoes and a variety of toppings like cheese, bacon bits, sour cream, and chives. Kids and adults alike will enjoy customizing their spuds to their liking.

  3. Leprechaun Punch: Whip up a refreshing green punch using lime sherbet, pineapple juice, and lemon-lime soda. Add some rainbow-colored ice cubes made with fruit juice for an extra festive touch.

With themed decorations, fun activities, and delicious treats, you can create lasting memories for your little one and their guests.
