This “My Little Sunshine” first birthday party is just too sweet for words!
Lindi of lovetheday designs created this happy little celebration for her daughter Ellason‘s first birthday, and – from the whimsical touches of lace and creative desserts to the “sunshine playlist” and adorable vintage bunting – the end result is nothing short of absolutely LOVELY!
I can also see this theme translating well to a baby shower or “You Are My Sunshine” bridal shower/engagement party.
Read on for lots more beautiful pics and party details/resources from Lindi…
The party featured an array of yellows and creams and was held on my backyard patio. Guests were welcomed with a “come around back” sign and my rustic fence was surrounded with yellow bunting (made from vintage sheets).
Displayed around the yard were large dowels that had been painted yellow and decorated with fabric and “Ellason is 1” signs.
Glass jars filled with yellow daisies & lemon drops hung from the trees. Flowers were stapled to the fence to serve as table backdrop, and a paper sun garland hung from the fence as well!
Party Favors were ribbon-bedecked “sunshine wands” with a “thanks for shining with us” label.
I designed all the printable party materials (my Etsy shop: lovetheday designs)
