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!
Today’s Summer BBQ feature comes from Chris of Celebrations at Home. Chris used the same red, white, and blue color scheme as yesterday’s BBQ feature, but she created an entirely different feel by going with a more vintage decor. The flowers in recycled cans, and torn pieces of ribbon tied around the condiments holder is a fantastic and easy decorating idea.
Another big difference, is the menu – sliders and baked beans. YUM!! I like the idea of using sliders, which are just a smaller hamburger, because it gives guests the opportunity to try different toppings without overloading on food.
Serving baked beans in small canning jars is, in my mind, ingenious! This way your slider buns won’t get all soggy from the beans.
I think lemonade is a staple at all BBQ’s. How fun to drink it out of a canning or mason jar that’s been personalized with a printable tag and topped off with a red striped straw.
And speaking of printables, Paper & Pigtails designed all the ones for this BBQ, and you can get them for FREE at Celebrations at Home. Now go check out the rest of this fabulous BBQ and let it inspire your own great event. Look for our post tomorrow on Summer BBQ – Dessert. Enjoy!
