Yellow and Grey “You Are My Sunshine” Party

Hi! I’m Noelle from NBrynn Designs & Events and I’m so excited to share this special birthday party with you today. We recently celebrated my daughter’s first birthday with a custom yellow and grey “You Are My Sunshine” theme that Carli here at DimplePrints helped bring to life. The end result was a beautiful, sweet, special day for our little lady!
Guests were greeted with this adorable (and easy!) ribbon wreath. The little ones all received a special favor and a party hat. 
I used a grey bookshelf from our home to set the favors and party hats out on, then embellished it with some mini pennant banners and pictures of the birthday girl. I layered the circle cutouts from the printable package on white doilies and tied them together with yellow ribbon. 
The party was a mid-morning brunch, so we served a variety of easy breakfast foods, including mini bagels and cream cheese, doughnut holes, blueberry muffins, quiche and cheerios and raisins for the little ones. I wanted to be able to prepare a majority of the food ahead of time so that we wouldn’t be scrambling that morning and I could focus on the birthday girl! 
I love how adding a few embellishments or new packaging to ordinary foods and beverages can make them seem so special. My kids thought the little bags of cheerios were the coolest thing ever, even though they are used to eating them regularly. I’m a huge believer in finding creative ways to make affordable food beautiful.
Apothecary jars are always a useful and appealing addition to a food table. I created some extra height with an old mail scale and tied it all together with a framed “Little Sunshine” print from the printable package.  
These gorgeous chevron cookies were courtesy of Linsey from The Honniepot. They tasted delicious, came in adorable packaging and were some of the most professionally decorated cookies I’ve found (and I’ve been on the hunt for a while!). Linsey will be hosting a giveaway on my blog next week, so please be sure to stop by for a chance to win!
These simple vanilla pudding shots were a huge hit. We filled them 3/4 full of instant vanilla pudding, added a squirt of whipped cream then topped them off with a vanilla wafer. Really easy and really yummy!
My absolute favorite piece of decor was this custom window panel I designed. I used my Cricut to cut out the “Havyn, You Are My Sunshine” lettering and glued them to the back of each panel. It was the perfect backdrop! I also love how we were able to incorporate a really modern print like chevron stripes with a softer, more vintage feeling pattern like gingham. 
Carli always includes an amazing variety of printables in her party packages, so I was fully equipped to carry the theme throughout the space! We had several signs framed around the house. I used the custom paper to wrap mason jars for flowers and to create mini pennant banners.
My mother made the matching highchair cover and bib so that her “smash cake” pictures would turn out  just right! It was so fun to see our little lady being sung to and then watching her dig into her vanilla cupcake. Her little brother also thought it was pretty great!
 It really was such a special day! I love getting to celebrate my children with all of our friends and family and was so happy with how all the decorations turned out. I’d love to share more event, craft and family ideas with you, so please visit us sometime at NBrynn where I do my best to celebrate life, one day at a time!
