You Are My Sunshine – a Yellow themed 3rd Birthday!

This beautiful girl turned three at the beginning of the month, and we decided that 3 was the right age to have a birthday party with her friends.  Though she’s not in preschool, she is in the preschool program at church, so she invited all of her friends from there to come celebrate with us!

She’s starting to get to an age where she has definite interests, and if I had suggested it to her, I’m sure she would have wanted a Moana themed party, but we decided to go in another direction.  My daughter, Autumn, LOVES the colour yellow.  She says her favourite colours are yellow and pink, but any time she gets the choice between something yellow and any other colour, she picks yellow every time.  It was a lot of fun setting up the house in a sunshine yellow colour, and I’m so excited to share some pictures of her party with you!

These were the little party favours that we gave out!  I found the free printable on Fun Squared! Click here to get them, too!

We had all kinds of snacks and goodies.  We held the party in the morning, so coffee for the moms was a necessity! I wanted a bunch of yellow decor without going all around the city looking at different stores and I also didn’t want to pay full price, so I searched “yellow decor” on Facebook Marketplace!  I got a giant box of great decor items for $20.  It was perfect for the party.  The placemats were part of that box!

To start the party, we had all the little ones sit down and colour their own picture!  I got this free printable from Tried and True Blog!  It was so much fun, and I think the kids really liked colouring their super happy sunshine pictures.

I like to post a photo timeline of Autumn from her life.  It’s awesome to see how she grew over the last three years.  (Just, if you do this for your own child’s party, I would advise against putting this up with You’ll Be In My Heart from Tarzan playing in the background 😉 )

We got Autumn’s special birthday balloons from Party Stuff.

The mantle was one of my favourite parts.  All these flowers were in the yellow decor box, and I had so much fun putting them on the mantle there with the candles and the baby’s breath.

Autumn’s dress was from Alysalovely Littles, embroidered by The Bear Necessities.  And her headband is from The Bear Necessities, too.

Aiden was the one little boy at the party, but he had a lot of fun (especially at cake time)
