There’s really no shortage to the party magic that Laila Plant of One Inspired Party can whip up, and today’s toy-inspired celebration is the perfect example!
Inspired by the famous FAO Schwarz – an NYC-based toy store founded in 1862 – this “World of Toys” First Birthday Party captures the same larger-than-life, childlike wonder that made the store so iconic. From giant building block signage to a dessert display backdrop fashioned after the infamous FAO Schwarz clock, the details in this party will have you feeling like a kid in a TOY store in no time! ;)
Party Highlights to look out for:
- clusters of toys used as centerpieces & displayed on colorful crates
- Ikea side tables customized with vinyl decals to read F A O
- an incredible array of desserts displayed on a giant “toy train”!
- giant toy soldier “greeters” + toy soldier inspired cake pops
- decorative signage made from giant alphabet blocks
- Mr. Potato Head party favors arranged to look like an in-store display

Party Details, as told by Laila…
Welcome to Our World of Toys! At our first meeting, when Mariaco told me she wanted to throw an FAO Scharwz inspired party for her son’s first birthday, I immediately fell in love with the theme! There’s so much tradition and nostalgia tied into the store that I wanted to make sure I did it justice.
Every single detail in this party was completely thought out. From the giant building blocks at the entrance to the toy soldiers, every single store staple made it to our party.
With an insane amount of creative details, Guillermo Andres’ party was filled with happy colors. Our primary colors color palette harmoniously tied all the elements together.
The amount of detail in each prop, including the toy soldier seat cover for the faceprinting area, the insane sweets for the table, and the oversized train for the dessert table were everything and I could not have been happier with the end result.
Happy birthday Guillermo Andres! Can’t wait to celebrate you next year.
