Celebrate Baby! | “You Are My Sunshine” Gender-Neutral Baby Shower

“You are my sunshine, my only sunshine” Everybody with me now… “You make me happyyyyy, when skies are gray!” Over the past couple of years, this precious song has taken off in popularity! Home décor, clothing, crafts, you name it, and the song has inspired it. This song has special meaning to me as it was sung during my daughter’s kindergarten graduation ceremony. Since then, we pretty much break out in song at any moment. Baby Z was only a few months old when my oldest graduated kindergarten last year. Whenever Zaynab is fussy, Jenin will sing the song to her and immediately calm her down. It’s seriously the sweetest thing ever.

With the song constantly on our minds and the summer sun shinning brightly now, I couldn’t help but feature this gorgeous baby shower that takes it’s theme and color palette from this lovely song. Charming Touch Parties shone bright with this awesome baby shower! Without a doubt, current mamas and mommies-to-be know that babies truly are the sunshine in our lives.
