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!
The family and I spent a wonderful day at the San Diego Fair yesterday. We watched the kids go on a million rides, and my youngest was even tall enough now to go on most of the “big kid” rides – which he LOVED even though he told me “they freaked my lights out”. The kids just couldn’t get enough, and only took a break when it was time to eat.
