A Rainbow Party

My youngest daughter loves color.  That may just be an understatement. 
SHE LOVES COLOR! 
Someday, I may post about decorating her room, but for now let's talk about birthday parties.  After seeing this post on Fowl Single File, I tentatively suggested the rainbow theme idea to my little girl as an option.  She agreed.  We loved the ideas in the post, and took a few cues from that party for our own (like using candy for decorating the cake and serving rainbow colored fruits and vegetables).  However, rather than attempt to duplicate their wonderful party, we came up with a few ideas of our own to put our own spin on the rainbow theme.   
Here is our take on a rainbow themed party... 

We began preparing for her party a couple weeks ahead of the scheduled day.

I made a birthday garland.


Together, my daughter and I made candy filled party favors


and goody bags.



We made decorations for the walls


and doorways,






prepared party games


and crafts,


planned a menu complete with a meal and dessert,

made rainbow colored sugar cookies



of several styles


and shapes,


and made a birthday cake


complete with her requested rainbow.


The day of the party, we ate,
crafted,






played games,



and had cake.



The party was a hit!

  3. Wow - you really go "all out" for a birthday! What a great Mom you are! Fun to find out you're a fellow HSing Mom, too. I'll be back to visit!

    I wanted to see how your Giving Thanks list was coming. Looks like you're keeping up with that - good for you. I'm thankful for each of those things, too. Well, except for the fact that I only have three kids. =)

    Blessings,

    Hi - what did you make the rainbows over the door on?

  7. The rainbows over the doors are constructed from poster board paper, paint or markers, crepe paper, and for some of the clouds, white balloons.
