  • For more help with themes and decorations, check out Shindigz or BirthdayExpress.com. Wendy Moyle, president of Shindigz says that of the 500 3-mails she gets each day asking for help, the greatest number of requests are for first birthday-party ideas. Most parents, she says, fall back on the same themes they used to decorate baby's nursery, featuring characters such as Winnie the Pooh and the Sesame Street Gang. "Second birthdays have a bit more personality," Moyle says, with themes often running along gender lines (construction for boys, fairy princess for girls).
