One of the most celebrated baby shower themes, You Are My Sunshine is unmissably versatile as not only is it gender neutral but gives you the opportunity to splash out on golden decors to truly bling it up or tone it down to shower out a natural garden feel with floral prints, burlap and of course a yellow smiley sunshine face, or two!
You can go all out to celebrate the bliss of a baby’s birth with singing, dancing and make merry altogether with a pretend tropical island with visitors acting as the great Hawaiian dancers soaking the fun and the sun. You can accentuate the mood with synthetic coconut and palm trees mushrooming across the island and live drum beaters setting the rhythm in the air. So change your gears to decorate your place like its party at the beach under the shinning golden sun.
Editable Sunshine Baby Shower Invitations
Yellow would be a must for any Sunshine themed party. With a cute sun and clouds or summer flowers, start off the invite with a message “A little ray of sunshine is on the way!”.
Sunshine Baby Shower Decorations
A blend of white, yellow, and light gray would give a charming atmosphere to the party room. Incorporating dainty blue for a baby boy, or pink for a girl would ensure the guest knows the gender of the baby.
Whether the party is indoor or outdoor, be sure to have bright sunlight filtering throughout. The main dessert table can be covered in a fantastic white cover to accentuate the treats.
There are a few options for a wonderful backdrop. It could be a row of colorful tassels accented with an adorable arrangement of giant poms. A yellow and white balloon garland over a hanging paper backdrop. You could even create a backdrop like below using yellow paper plates!
Sunshine Baby Shower Food Ideas
Let there be starters like chicken sandwiches with summer fruit punch drinks. If Children are invited, they can binge on savories like barbecued chips and cheese biscottis. Serve iced teas and fruit juices in coconut shells to lighten up the mood. You can have beetroot salad, crab pastries, and Hawaiian salad for filling up your guests.
The treats can be designed to blend with the sunshine theme. Cakepops shaped like suns and clouds with sweet smiles, pink and yellow sunshine sugar cookies, and cupcakes with adorable toppers laid out on fantastic trays to create a full look for the table. Don’t forget the ice creams in groovy mango flavor, perfect if you are having a summer baby shower.
Healthy treats can be fruit skewers made up of pineapple and cantaloupe following the color palette. Add a little Sunshine toppers for an adorable touch.
Sunshine Baby Shower Favors
For favors, prepare some beautifully wrapped sunflower or sunshine themed cookies or soaps with a custom thank you tag! Another idea would be yellow striped favor bags filled with yellow and white yummy candies!
