Oliver’s Corner Store-Themed 1st Birthday Party
Coming up with a unique theme for a first birthday party can be quite a challenge. Ive seen literally hundreds of boys birthday party theme ideas, and weve featured dozens of beautiful first birthday celebrations here at Spaceships and Laser Beams, but I can say I have never seen anything like this stunning market themed boys first birthday party! Baby Olivers love of squirting fruits and vegetables with a water bottle inspired his Aunt Kendra, of Kendra Plastow Event Styling, to create this remarkably unique party concept. Modern styling, amazing printables, delicious menu choices, and personalization throughout are all nearly outdone by one of the greatest first birthday party favor ideas Ive ever seen. Dont miss a single detail in Lee Bird Photographys gorgeous photos.

The Happy Blue Bird store name was inspired by little Olivers nickname, and 2 Love Birds Sweet Design created an entire printable collection just for the occasion. The adorable bright white and fresh green faux store front backdrop sets the scene perfectly. Sweetly coordinated labels and wraps transform menu items into stock at the market.
Fresh berries, salad snack packs, strawberry jam, plus darling cookies by The Iced Biscuit, are just some of the items on the menu. A creamy cake, by Fondant Delights, is personalized with chalkboard printable toppers. Plastic containers and riser-style display shelving really add to the corner store feel.
Fresh greenery and produce, plus delightful chalkboard accents really take the theme above and beyond. I love the grown locally sign next to little Olivers sweet portrait! Kendra achieved a consistently breezy open air market feel by using only white and clear glass and serving ware, with a few pale wood pieces.
There are so many fantastic little details at this party, but the personalized Melbourne Times newspapers featuring the birthday boy on the front page is a stroke of creative genius! Interviews with family members make it even more personal. What a remarkable first birthday party favor idea!
This market-themed boys first birthday party is one of a kind, but it provides ample inspiration for planning your own event. A pretend play store for toddler and preschool birthday parties could be one translation, but I could also see this easily becoming a gorgeous baby shower theme idea.
