Sunshine Party: You are my Sunshine, My Only Sunshine.  Today I’m sharing a sweet one year old’s Sunshine party.  Be sure to check out all of our sunshine party ideas and inspiration. Sunshine Pic

“You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.  You make me happy when skies are gray…” Don’t those words just make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside?  No wonder this Sunshine design is one of my most popular designs.  It’s such a great way to say, “hey little one…I love you!” Adorable, right?  Today I’m sharing a simply precious Sunshine party styled by my friend Tiersha over at Parties by Tiersha using my Sunshine Printables.  She put together this adorable party for sweet little Aspen’s first birthday.  Check it out all the sunshine-y details…IMG_2609 I love this little open sign.  Party tip: One of the best things about party styling is that so often the things you need for your party are already in your home.  Pick a theme that fits your child, often for a baby shower or a first birthday, the theme of their bedroom is perfect for the party theme.  Use the decor you have on hand so you don’t have to spend a ton on decorations.  Things like these simple white plant pots…can double as home decor!  In a nutshell…use what you HAVE and buy what you can USE!

This sweet little sunshine cake came from the Target Bakery!  Did you know Target did cakes??  As if there weren’t already enough reasons why I LOVE that place.  Simple…adorable and perfect for this party!!  I’m also a sucker for beautiful cake stands…I own far too many!!!  Like this pretty yellow stand…they just make cakes POP!

Here’s cute little Aspen enjoying her cake!  For favors, she tied the favor tags to little bubble bottles.  Bubbles make great favors..don’t ya think?

Having a sunshine scrapbook for guests to sign and to put pictures into from the party is such a sweet idea for a first birthday.  What a wonderful way to celebrate a little ones first year!




Here’s a clever way to display the high chair banner.  My favorite thing about using printables is the fact that there is no wrong way to use them.  Be creative and display them in a way that makes sense for YOUR party and YOUR style.  I love, love putting water bottle labels on jars and centerpieces or using cupcake toppers on TONS of items.  It just makes things so personalized and matchy, matchy!!


Happy Birthday Aspen!  I hope it was a great one. It sure looks like you had a blast!!
