{Real Party} You Are My Sunshine First Birthday

The song “You Are My Sunshine” has been one that I often sing my son. Living in Portland, Oregon the sun only really shines during the summer and early Fall. So, my son keeps me smiling year round. 
I hired Macey from Motormouth Studios to hang out at the party all day and take photos. She did a fabulous job!
There were a ton of DIY details that I want to share with you, including printables, recipes, and activities. But, they all can’t go in this one post. So, today will be a picture overload. Stay tuned this week for all of the DIY items!
Sweets table made for the adults and the kids. This week I’ll be putting up a recipe for kid-friendly banana cupcakes!
Fresh fruit, veggies, and sandwiches hit the spot on a hot day.
We had a whole bunch of adorable kids in attendance. From top left clockwise: My son X,; Daughters of The Boho Mama—Ruthie and Afton; My son’s friend Jaxson (born 3 days apart); and Garden of Edlen‘s son Jack
My kiddo ate TWO of the toddler food trays I put out. Idea from: Jennifer Bishop
X loved his smash cake (made from the more kid friendly banana cake that I’ll be featuring this week).
