I made her a cake and pretty much invited over all family and a few close friends. I didn't bother trying to find other kids her age to invite over which eliminated party favors. She is too young to really care about that. We had it in the late afternoon and just had snacks. I made a really awesome slide show of pictures of her from birth til 1 year and put background music behind it. We opened presents. She was kinda overwhelmed from all of the people, but she had a good time. You can't really go wrong for a first birthday! Do whatever works for you and your family!.

With my first son I realized the first birthday is more a celebration for the family as a whole, than just for the child. To a one-year-old, it's just another magical day in a series of magical days. We invited grandparents, aunts & uncles & a few friends (adult friends). My son was (and still is, at 15) a little overwhelmed with lots of people, so it was very brief. Being there for him was my goal, not doing some kind of celebration that didn't even take into consideration his developmental level or temperament. For us, low-key was the key!

Birthdays are definitely more for the family than the object that happens to do a ++age.
I am always the most bored person at any birthday party, doesn't matter if it's my own. Everyone just uses the day as an excuse to get together and talk about stuff and eat stuff.
IMHO birthdays are meaningless. Just like any holiday it's just an excuse to slack off and waste money.
This year I decided that there'd be no celebration, but some family still showed up and I had to give up working on my project. At least I got some chocolate for the trouble...

My kids first birthdays, their favourite parts of the gifts were the boxes! And I let them have their cake and eat it themselves. very messy, but cleaned up in good cheer
We just had family. I think that party favors are overrated. These days, I hold a kid's party and they can play games and each pick out a prize to take home at the end.
We have a family party as well, on a different day. Mostly because our family is huge and we love an excuse for a party
