Ella's "You are my Sunshine" 2nd Birthday Party!

It seems like only yesterday we were celebrating Ella's 1st Birthday.  This year, my sister-in-law had the best idea to have a "You are my Sunshine" themed second birthday for adorable Ella!  It was the perfect theme for such a bright and happy little girl!

I used a friend's Cricut for the banner ~ I am officially hooked.  I NEED one of these!

Vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese frosting

Chocolate cake pops ~ a favorite!

View from the backyard ~ gorgeous!

The Etsy print that inspired it all!  {Also a birthday gift to Ella from Auntie & Uncle}

Cocktail Umbrella Topiaries ~ so easy to make!  I'm already thinking of more occasions where I can use the left-over colors!


The birthday girl herself, dancing to the Biebs!

Beautiful Ella & Mama!

Too much!

Silly girl!


We had such a good time celebrating the cutest little sunshine girl!
We love you, Ella Marais!
