Yellow & Grey Colour Theme

For your little one’s celebration, styling it around colours (as opposed to a specific theme) can work beautifully and yellow and grey are two colours that I am loving together at the moment (and it seem’s alot of you are too!). Of course you can also choose this colour scheme to work in with a specific theme you have chosen as well. It’s perfect for boys, girls or a baby shower!

Make sure you also pop into our previous “You are my sunshine” theme post which has lots of yellow inspiration as well!

Please contact me at lifeslittlec@gmail.com if you’d like to know more about my services to provide you with more inspiration, customised to your specific requirements and vision – all provided to you online! =)

You are my sunshine theme

In the midst of winter here is a bright party theme to warm you up and make you smile! I love the idea of this sunny theme based around the song “You are my sunshine”.

I’ve incorporated some ideas based around sunshine, sunflowers and ‘Little Miss Sunshine’, however you could really use most of these items for any yellow theme party such as a Rubber Ducky or a Buzz buzz bee theme! You could also combine yellow with a pastel pink or purple if you want more of a girly feel, or combine with a baby blue or light grey for a boy.

It makes for a great first birthday party or baby shower (lovely to celebrate the little one’s who are yet to arrive!).

So if you are ready for some sun in the middle of this winter, sit back, browse and enjoy….

First off let me share these gorgeous milk cake stands which come in the beautiful Buttercream colour you can see which would really highlight any yellow touches in your cake as well as looking so sweet on the table!

Milk Glass Cake Stands - Sweet Style

If you prefer a darker shade of yellow then this Amber stand shown here in a smaller size (but available in other sizes) would be great either for a cake or for displaying other treats:

Hobnail cake stand in Amber - Sweet Style

To top off your cake, have a look at this precious cake bunting! This is a great way of dressing up a simple cake if you don’t have the time to decorate the cake yourself or the money to order a custom cake:

Cake bunting - Mon Tresor

For another great effect on your cake, try these 6 inch yellow celebration candles!

Celebration candles - Sharnel Dollar Designs

To bring some sunshine to your party area I love this Sunshine fabric bunting. It has a mix of delightful yellow patterns and would brighten up any room in your home afterwards:

Sunshine bunting flags - Giggleberry Creations

This paper sunburst hanging decoration totally compliments a sunshine theme and would look great combined with the below paper lantern:

Ribbed paper lantern - Details, Details

Love this giant yellow balloon for another sunshine party effect! Rather than being hung these could be attached as a row of single balloons attached to balloon sticks and stood on the table itself.

Yellow 3ft giant balloon - Little Sooti

Party hat’s have come a long way haven’t they? Check out these yellow daisy fabric hats! They would double as a take home gift as well for the little one’s!

Felt party hat Daisies - Stella and Livi

Those of you in Sydney will love these mini yellow chairs to hire for this party! Am sure you can find similar in other states, so this is just to give you the idea of what could be out there:

Tiny yellow chair - Tiny Tots Toy Hire

Another alternative are these ultra cute stools from Ikea!

For some bright table decor you could use this lovely tablerunner on top of a white tablecloth:

Then team up this square plate with the yellow patterned napkins:

Limoncello napkins - Occasion by Design

These milk bottles come in a beautiful lemon or Buttercup colour! Can you imagine how gorgeous they would look?

Can’t get enough of paper straws around here….!

Pop some homemade lemonade into this fabulous beverage dispenser to add an extra burst of yellow onto the table as well as being a great item to bring out at all your parties!:

If you are taking  a ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ spin on this theme, then these adorable toppers would dress up any cupcake!

Sunflowers totally work with this theme and I’m loving this unique idea of a tissue sun-flower. These come with the stem and leaves (not the pot) or you can also order flower pom’s without the stem.

Flower pom - Ah Tissue

An extra special touch on your table or around your party area is a canvas or print which you can then hang up later as a reminder of this special day. Here are a few lovely one’s I found for this theme to remind your little one how special they are!

You are my sunshine print - Hello goodbye again

Finally ending with some take home lovelies, these pom pom sticks are just magical aren’t they? They come in a smaller size also and make a really special take home gift which carries on the Sunshine theme well.

I love the idea of giving a book as a favour (it’s the teacher in me!) – it’s useful and will be a nice reminder of your little one every time their friends read this story!

If you are planning on giving some sweets as a take home gift, then this little tin is so cute!

Or these self-standing striped lolly bags are lovely and allow a bit more room!:

Hope you enjoyed these finds and they help you on your way of celebrating your little one’s!
