This year my daughter requested a Rainbow party. Not knowing exactly what to do with this theme, it took me some time to figure out what I was going to create. After thinking and dreaming of rainbow ideas I finally was full steam ahead with Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple!
As you arrived you were met with rainbows everywhere. We also had a wheelbarrow to collect canned goods. This year we decided to collect food for our local Food Pantry in lieu of gifts. With all of the canned goods collected, Savannah was able to put together 5 complete Thanksgiving Dinner boxes for local families. Such a fun activity for us to do as a family.
We also had a life size Crayon Box photo booth. Made from a piece of plywood and some extra wood lying around the garage, it made for a fun activity for the kids. It also gave us some great pictures of friends and family just being silly and having a good time.
We had lots of sweets; cake, suckers, chocolate covered marshmallows, cupcakes and so much more. There were sweets for everyone!
The cake, again, was amazing this year. Danielle from A Piece of Cake does such a great job. Not only does the cake look amazing, but it tastes delicious. Everyone always enjoys her yummy cakes and they couldn't look any cuter!
The chocolate 5 suckers, chocolate covered Oreos and the chocolate dipped Rice Krispy treats were fabulous. Ashley from Bubbas Sweets always makes the cutest chocolates for any theme and they are always a hit, especially since they are so yummy!
We had lots of fun party favors. Each bag was filled with rainbow sunglasses, stickers, pencils, crayons and paints. We also had mini beach balls, bracelets and bubbles. Plenty of goodies to keep the kids entertained! We also hired Mister Twister Balloons, a balloon artist. He was great with the kids and kept them busy with fun balloon animals, wands and more.
Since I added the Paint idea to the Rainbow theme, I bought smocks, paints, brushes and canvases for all of the kids to paint. They had so much fun painting pictures.
Since there was so much color going on I decided to go with Black linens and chairs. It made the colors really pop in the yard. The center pieces this year were paint cans, painted and glittered and then filled with paint brushes, painted and dipped in glitter and a matching balloon attached. I love how they turned out.
We went with a simple lunch of Sandwiches, which we named Starving Artists Sandwiches, Rainbow Fruit Skewers, Paint Chips, Van Gogh Veggie Salad and Creative Juice to drink.
I can't believe another year has gone by and my little baby is 5. Now I need to start brainstorming for the next one...but I think I need a rest first! Everyone had a blast and as always we enjoy having everyone over for an afternoon filled with fun and colorful surprises.
