I’ve been thinking about my son’s first birthday party a lot lately. I don’t want to go crazy for it. He won’t remember and honestly, I have other things money needs to be spent on. But, I do want to celebrate it. And, I want to have a fun theme. I also want to invite all of the wonderful people who have made this first year be a meaningful and successful one.
Before I ever thought I’d have a little boy I came up with a 1st birthday party theme for a little boy. I posted about it and titled the post, “If I had an almost one-year-old BOY!“
It was a cute “Little Man” party with mustaches and bowties a-plenty.
But, since then I’ve thrown a “Fancy Pants” Birthday and an “Old Man” birthday.
Each had their share of mustaches and bowties.
And, I’ve been around my son for nearly a year now. And, really, the mustaches and bowties don’t feel so much like him to me. When thinking about his birthday I had a hard time coming up with a “theme.”
But, one day as I was singing, “You are my sunshine,” for the millionth time… I got an idea.
At the moment I’m going with a “You are a Sunshine” theme for the party. I think it really works. He was born in August (a notoriously sunny month in Portland, a notoriously gray town). He makes me smile… every single day. And, the color scheme of yellow, gray, and blue would be super cute for his party.
I do know for sure that I am going to buy these shirts.
Here is where you come in: I need help! I’ve got a few ideas and sources. But, I could really use some extra ideas/sources. If you have an etsy store and have an idea that fits for this theme, I’d love to talk! If you have a great idea, please share!
