A You Are My Sunshine birthday party theme is perfect for your little one if they are your sunshine, and I have a feeling they might be if you’re here getting ideas to celebrate them!

This theme is so cute and perfect for summer but really, it works any time of the year. That’s one of the reasons it’s so great!

PS: All of the decorations pictured are available for purchase on my Etsy shop – you can find the link below!

You Are My Sunshine Birthday Banner

When I came up with the idea to put paper daisies on the sun as a flower crown I felt truly unstoppable with my creative cuteness – Parties by Tanea, designing the cutest party attributes and taking names. *wink*

These flowers are all handcrafted by me and my mom – the dynamic duo of cricut crafting XD. We use our cricut to craft everything we make, and we love making beautiful parties come to life. Check out the Etsy here!

The Desserts

I loved planning the desserts for this party! I tried to keep it light and summery with all the flavors and textures. We had lemon cake, a variety of cupcakes from our favorite local bakery, and lemon bites from Walmart. It worked wonderfully and felt so summery!

I worked hard to source the perfect plates and napkins for this theme and they are both available in my Etsy shop with a purchase of our Sunshine Decoration Kit!

The High Chair

I love using a high chair banner to decorate our dessert table first, but I always move it to the high chair for a little smash cake action in the middle of the party. This way we get use out of it the whole time – it also helps make the pictures so so cute!

The Whole Package – You Are My Sunshine Birthday

I wanted to make this party so easy to decorate for all the mom’s out there that don’t have a cricut or the necessary supplies, so I created this ultimate birthday kit with all the essentials you’ll need to throw the cutest birthday party ever!

This kit includes:

  • The main banner
  • Cupcake Toppers or Cake topper
  • Paper Straws
  • Confetti

A You Are My Sunshine birthday party is the perfect way to celebrate your little one and I think we did a good job of showing off how truly *CUTE* it can be!
