You Are My Sunshine party theme supplies

A “you are my sunshine” party theme,Β  or “little ray of sunshine” theme is a gorgeous theme especially for a younger age. It can be used for a boy or girl and although there is not many “sunshine” themed party items available – all you need is lots of yellow decor and perhaps a sunshine themed cake or other desserts.

Printables are also fantastic to use to create sunshine toppers and garlands or you could use a vendor in the Handmade Decor category of the Life’s Little Celebration’s children’s party directory to make some sunshine items for you – such as toppers, garlands etc!

I hope you enjoy this selection of items when planning a You are my sunshine party. At the end of this post you will find links to some wonderful real parties for some inspiration!
