This adorable SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Christy Bergerson of Itsy Belle!

Christy said- “When the mommy & me playgroup I belong too wanted to do an end of summer party, all kinds of themes were considered. When a rainbow party came up in discussion and we realized we had 7 girls we knew it was perfect! A “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” theme was decided on and each little guest was assigned one Color of the rainbow to represent. Outfits could be put together in their color reflecting their personality.

What’s a party without treats?! Skittles were decided on as the perfect rainbow of sweets and I went to work creating a preschooler perfect dessert table. I was really inspired by the vintage lemonade stands I’ve seen popping up everywhere lately. Some weathered wooden crates created the perfect stand. I purchased fabric in every Color of the rainbow and cut into strips to create the fun fabric banner topping it. A vintage lemonade inspired sign declaring “Rainbows 5¢”, jars with colorful party circles and color coordinating paper fans with each little guests Name, and a candy scoop tag reading “taste the rainbow ” invited each guest to help themselves to some sweets. Plastic bags, Colorful string and thank you rainbow tags were provided for everyone to create their own sweet rainbow favors to take home. The centerpiece of the sweets stand was the fondant & ribbon covered cake, topped with an adorable rainbow pom cake topper created by Deborah of Titi’s Tutus.

The moms wanted to make sure to have a lot of photos of their adorable little rainbow, so a basket attached to balloons was the perfect “photobooth” offering rides to ” Somewhere Over the Rainbow”. Each girl got a turn in the basket and it quickly turned into a fun game of knocking the basket over with friend inside! Thankfully it was all in fun and lots of giggling took place!”
