Evie's 1st Birthday - You are my Sunshine
To celebrate our little girl turning one, we decided on the beautiful theme - You are my Sunshine. During my whole pregnancy we were convinced we were having another boy. What a surprise we had, when we found out our little baby was a girl. She wore blue and was surrounded by blue for the first few months, so it felt right to have a not so traditional pink party for her birthday. Having said that, the You are my Sunshine theme is still very pretty, and feminine in its own way. Yellow and grey chevron are very on trend at the moment, and go perfectly with this theme. Add yellow, white and grey tissue paper pom poms to complete the look.
I got creative and made a yellow sun pinata. I just covered a soccerball pinata with yellow tissue paper. Easy! The party bags were a homemade cookie shaped like a sun, which I dare say were gratefully excepted by the parents.. too many lollies were already consumed! I found a cute little plain white singlet for Evie to wear, and jazzed it up with a cut out sun and cloud. Then ironed them on. I even surprised myself.
The whole day was wonderful, and the theme came together perfectly. By just having a few key items and sticking with 2 or 3 colours, it can create a lovely flowing theme and it doesn't have to cost a fortune.
The You are my Sunshine package is now available for hire. Any questions or comments please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to helping you with your own event, and making it a day to remember.
