I’ve been seeing rainbow parties all over lately, and I think it’s such a great party theme. Just take a look at this rainbow inspiration board I found on Divine Party Concepts.
The decoration possibilities are endless as well, and they’re very easy to make yourself. Like these yarn balloons and hanging paper mobiles by Juicy Bits, pretty rainbow paper lanterns and rainbow centerpieces from The Savvy Moms Guide, a paper “cheers” banner from I Go You Go, tissue paper filled clear bulbs from Bird’s Party, an amazing hanging banner from O Chickadee, and a rainbow balloon arch from Design Mom.
You can’t have a party without at least a few sweets, and these sweets and treats are perfect. Just look at this table of yumminess and chocolate dipped cookies by Buggie and Jellybean, or these rainbow cupcakes, the ever popular rainbow layer cake by Whisk Kid, or rainbow decorated cookies.
Kick your party up a notch by offering your guests a rainbow assortment of drinks like these one’s seen on Thoughtfully Simple.
Don’t forget about the food for your guests. Why not give them a rainbow platter of fruit.
Or even a build your own pizza station would be cool, with the toppings to go along with your theme. Like red tomatoes, orange pepperoni, yellow pineapple, green peppers, bleu cheese, and purple onions (okay, I know they are actually red onions, but their color is purple).
It wouldn’t be a party without the printables, and you can get them for free from Paper Glitter.
Are you seeing rainbows yet? I sure hope so. Enjoy!
I cannot get this Lil Monsters Party from Jeannette at J. At Your Service out of my mind. From the first moment I saw it, I was hooked. The color scheme makes this party POP!! I love how the orange, turquoise, and lime compliment each other.
The addition of a furry monster photo booth is so creative, and a wonderful idea for taking pictures of all the guests.
Jeannette styled this party perfectly for her little man, and the best part is that it’s so playful and fun instead of scary. Be sure to head over to Jeannette’s site and check out the rest of the party pictures, and she even shares all the vendors she used to help create this fun party.

Honestly, I sometimes think I am addicted to planning. It’s my drug. Things don’t always go according to my plan, but even then, I just start a new plan. Whether it’s our finances, weekly dinner menu, or my To Do list, I’m always planning something. My favorite thing to plan though is a party. I start planning months in advance. For my son Jace’s upcoming 5th birthday in May, I started planning last September. Yes you read that correctly- a whole 8 months in advance. Some people think this is crazy, but I love it! It gives me plenty of time to choose a theme, make my decorations, and hunt for the best prices on any supplies I need.
Originally, when I asked Jace what he wanted to do for his birthday he asked for Chuck E Cheese. There’s not much to plan when having a party at a place like that, but I didn’t let that stop me. I mean after all, there was still the guest list, goody bags, and cake to plan out right!? So I started planning. And then he changed his mind.
Just after the first of the year, as we were walking through the Dollar Tree store, he spotted the monster truck party supplies. Now, as anyone who knows Jace is aware, he LOVES monster trucks. He’s loved them since he was 2 years old. It was a no brainer that the theme of his party was going to have to be changed, and Chuck E wasn’t going to be fitting in to the new theme. Time to scrap the old plan, and begin with a new. There was so much more planning to be done for this kind of party, and I won’t lie – I was excited!
Stay tuned for my next post, where I’ll show you my inspiration board, and tell you about some of the plans.
