okay…so a rainbow birthday party doesn't technically fit into a valentine's theme. but i LOVE throwing parties. so parties belong on my love list!
i think we all know there is nothing new under the sun (rainbow??). i planned this party with the help of pinterest. how in the world did i EVER throw a party before pinterest? it makes it so much easier for this tired mama's brain. see my rainbow board here.
i used the martha stewart hydrangea punch for the garland. i strung it onto embroidery thread. the paper fan flowers are from party city.
we did watercolors for the favors…i bought rainbow ribbon from michaels and used a studio calico stamp for the tags. note: these are a great and affordable favor, i found them at target for 97 cents.
straws from shop sweet lulu:
closeups of the table:
the cake and cupcakes were from the AMAZING cheryl at back in the day bakery. she doesn't normally do custom orders like this, but she made an exception and we are SO grateful!!
i purchased sadie's candle at shop sweet lulu.
as you enter into the den (martha stewart flowers):
party hats from target, i embellished them with a heart punch and jenni bowlin buttons:
crepe paper fringe leading into den…i won't even admit how long this took me+j to do. he's a bit of a..ahem…perfectionist?
the den (lanterns from oriental trading,fans from party city,garland above window from party city):
and my personal favorite..an inflatable twister! YESSSSS. we rented it from a local inflatable rental business:
and my favorite shots of the sweet birthday girl:
one more thing:
jimmy made a playlist for the party (the girls had a hilarious dance party at one point).
the playlist included fresh beat band, yo gabba gabba,rainbow connection, several versions of somewhere over the rainbow, and the rainbow song.
also…i gave the bigs a basket of sidewalk chalk and let them draw rainbows all over the driveway and sidewalk leading up to the house.
well, there you have it! i want to say how much FUN this was for me to do. i love throwing parties for my girls.
hope you all have a beautiful tuesday!
