You are my sunshine {a real party}

I spent my Friday and Saturday helping my dear friend Sarah set up for her daughter Evelyn’s 1st Birthday! The theme — You are My Sunshine! Sarah really thought of everything for this party from start to finish. I snapped a few pictures of the table and decor.

I have to start off by saying that I am in ā™„ with Sarah’s kitchen! 6 range gas stove, bead board ceilings, wood floors, cute white chandelier and a view that is just beautiful! I think that the theme of this party fits in perfectly with Sarah and Evie’s personalities and their gorgeous home!

Sarah wrapped simple glass vases with ribbon, added crisp white hydrangeas and was able to transform the table! As a special touch she made a cd with music that had the word sunshine in it!

She was able to borrow a large glass water container and she made a delicious Raspberry Lemonade!

On the back wall Sarah created a large sunshine with a collage of Evie’s photo’s over the last year.

I love the idea of the fruit kabob, it makes for easy finger food that will not stain.

She filled a large yellow mixing bowl with cream puffs dusted in powder sugar. We also made little take away gifts by filling old clean baby food jars with chocolate covered Sunflower seeds. Then we covered them with fabric and tied ribbon around for an extra touch.

Sarah had 2 amazing friends that offered to make the cake. The created this large sun shape with over 75 cupcakes. The best part was the actual cupcake was dyed to look like a rainbow when you bit into it! The addition of the solid chocolate ‘sunshine girl’ was literally the icing on the cake!

I wanted to finish off with a few pictures that I had snapped of Sarah and I with our daughters ā™„

Finally, a little snapshot of the personalities of our girls… Evelyn, Sarah’s daughter is the adorable one not screaming her head off. I am sure you can guess who the upset crying little girl belongs too.. me. ā™„
