Birthday romper outfits to celebrate
your little one's special day!
Does your little one have a birthday coming up? Want to get them a birthday party outfit to remember? Then, you've come to the right place.
My team and I design and make bespoke birthday outfits to make sure your little person's milestone is celebrated to the full. After all, they're only small once!
We have a Birthday Panda print (unique to Popsy and Mama) that we use to create most of our handmade and custom-made outfits for little people celebrating their 1st all the way through to their 5th birthday. Styles include rompers, dresses, tees, dungarees (the list is endless).
But, as always with Popsy and Mama your special birthday party outfit doesn't have to be made with our panda print. We have many, many more prints to choose from.
Read on for birthday outfit inspiration, plus ideas about how to celebrate your little one's big day!
Now, excuse me while I reminisce about my Poppy's early birthdays (she was 9 this week). I'm not crying, I promise!

Rompers aren't just for the tinies, they look just as cute as little people grow. They're also super-comfy, giving the birthday girl or boy more room to run, laugh and play.
Our Birthday Panda Print which has numbered birthday balloons is available for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th birthdays (as well as 1st). You can choose from our four different romper styles: classic romper, shortie romper, bummie romper or bubble romper.

Birthday party ideas
Now we've picked the birthday boy or birthday girl's outfit, let's get onto the party planning. Do you find throwing a party all a bit much? Me too! I love the idea of making Poppy's birthday extra special, but when it comes to organising the actual event I get all in a tizz.
But, worry not, I've spent many hours searching and connecting with other brands through Instagram to pull together all the latest and greatest ideas to make your little person's birthday a hit. You can thank me later...
@catchmyparty: decor inspiration
Catch My Party is all about giving you inspiration for decor themes. If I'm being completely honest, I feel a lot of them are over the top. But as a starter for ten, this Instagram feed is great for getting your party-theme ideas flowing, especially for 1st birthday decoration inspiration. It looks like you need to ditch the usual pink balloon and go for a rainbow colour instead!
@mylittleteaparty: party tables with a difference
Want a tea party to remember? My Little Tea Party is based in Kent and specialises in setting up luxury picnics for children's parties. They look divine. I wonder if they do them for adults too?!
@thecakefactory.official: cake inspiration
I do love making my own cakes for Poppy's birthday, but I'm not sure my skills quite match these designs! The Cake Factory is based in Watford and they make incredible designs that will definitely put a smile on the birthday girl or boy's face.
@supernovasleepover: throwing-a-party ideas
No doubt you've seen 'sleepover tents' popping up on your Instagram feeds for a while. We've still not given them a go, but I know Poppy would love a sleepover with her friends to celebrate her birthday one day. Supernova Sleepover is based in Essex and they have planners that set up a fancy sleepover setting for you. Easy!
@littlelearnerswindsor: no fuss party activities
Imagine throwing a party, but everything is done for you. That's exactly what Little Learners do with their messy play parties. They come along, set up tuff trays full of activities, then when the party has finished they clear it all away. Genius! There are Little Learners team members based all over the country so there's bound to be someone near you that can help with your little one's next birthday.
@popupplayvillagenewbury: keeping little one's amused
Pop Up Play is a children's play-franchise in the UK. You might've visited one with your little person before? They now throw parties where the planners set up imaginative-play scenarios (think vets, doctors, building sites, supermarkets) and your child and their friends have free-reign to play however they want. Great for creating mini-adventures.
@lunch_with_lilly: party food for little people
Food for little people isn't always the easiest to get right. There are lots of likes, dislikes and allergies to take into account. But, if you can make your party food look fun, surely there'll be more chance it'll get eaten, right? Lunch with Lilly is a personal blog I follow on Instagram. Okay, so it's not dedicated to party food but there are loads of ideas for you to try and recreate yourself. All are healthy for little tummies too.
@sarahscreativekitchen: sweet treats
Okay, okay, so we don't want to fill little tummies with too many sweet treats, but every party needs a little bit of chocolate, right? Sarahs Creative Kitchen is based in Leigh-on-Sea and she makes by hand wonderful sweet-treat creations. Orders can be bespoke or chosen from one of her many designs. Now these will certainly make a party-pudding to remember!
@sisiandseb: keepsake presents
Every time I browse Sisi & Seb I get carried away. Everything they sell is simply beautiful. Looking for 1st birthday presents - or any special birthday present - is always a tough one. This online children's store however has loads of ideas. I'm sure you'll find something your little one will like and can cherish for years.

Finally, before I go, something to make you smile. Here's a picture of one of the cakes I made for Poppy. Haven't quite managed to beat this one yet!
