{PS Party Theme} You are my sunshine...

Pretty Smitten's You Are My Sunshine print has been one of the most popular items in the shop since I created it a couple years ago. I started singing the song to Owen shortly after he was born. It became a nighttime ritual...one I now share with both Owen and baby Amelia. But I'm not the only one who has an emotional connection to the song...more often then not customer's tell me why they love it, who they sing it to, or who sings it to them....and I absolutely adore these stories!

So why not create a party around it? A few sunshine parties have popped up around the web...check out a couple here and here. But what would a Pretty Smitten sunshine party be? Well of course we have to start with the print...


I see it in kelly green and yellow. Just like the grass and the sun, perfect for an outdoor party. And for the invitations? How about the medallion pattern, stick with our color scheme of kelly green and yellow and throw in a monogram.



And then add in some...

and sweet treats

And you've got yourself a sweet party for your little sunshine. So, who wants to be my first client to throw a Pretty Smitten sunshine party?
