Today I am featuring my RAINBOW THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY! I actually styled this party last year…and have been dying to share it with you!

This party was super fun to plan and execute. I hope you enjoy all of the rainbow party ideas. I tried to pack as many rainbow themed party ideas as possible into one party. There are a lot of ideas that could be used for an ART PARTY, too!

Cake- Chubby Hubby Cupcakes

All party products used in this Rainbow party are from KARA’S PARTY SHOP:

A number 5 piñata from Kara’s Party Shop doubled as part of the decor.

I filled letter candy dishes spelling ‘happy’ (from Amazon.com) with various rainbow candy…

White Gable Box, Bakers Twine- Kara’s Party Shop

I love these old fashioned lollipops in the shop. I attached cute tags (part of the rainbow printable collection) to the lollipops with bakers twine (also from the shop). I cut out the tags with my scallop paper punch.

These napkin holders were one of my favorite elements of the party. I used mini chevron bags to hold napkins, a candy stick and a paper straw with a cute printable straw topper…all from the shop. I tied printed wooden spoons to the bags with bakers twine…available here.

The invitation is also part of the printable party pack…shown here with red ribbon weaved through one side.

I cut cloud shapes out of white card stock and used them as fun straw toppers. Glass milk bottles, paper straws and printable drink label from the shop.

The layered jello was super fun in the mini plastic parfait cups from the shop.

One of the cute images from the printable party pack was printed on iron on transfer paper. The “you are my sunshine” was then printed onto linen favor bags from the shop.

Milk bottles, rainbow drink labels & striped paper straws from Kara’s Party Shop.

The same “you are my sunshine” image was printed on a smaller scale and used as cupcake toppers (attached to striped paper straws). A yellow pom sun was also attached to each topper.

Bubble favors were adorned with rainbow heart patterned printable flags (also part of the rainbow party pack).

Oranges were cut in half and hollowed out then filled with jello. Cute happy birthday wooden spoons from the shop were inserted into each orange jello cup.

I filled individual popsicle molds with rainbow candies and attached a printable tag (also from the printable collection) with bakers twine.

I filled ice cube trays with various juice and fruit. The ice cubes were delicious in Sprite.

I made the above party hats with regular inexpensive hats from my shop. I simply glued paper fringe (available in all colors in the Kara’s Party Ideas Shop) around the bottom of the hats to dress them up a bit.

Rock candy sticks (from the shop) are one of my favorite party treats.

I added paper fringe to the tops of paper chevron print bags.

Doughnut holes served as “Doughnut Clouds”. Printable topper from the rainbow printable collection.

Mini plastic cordial cups from the shop were filled with rainbow candies. A printable tag from the party pack was then simply placed on top of the candy in the center of the bowl for extra cuteness.

Easily make these popsicle cupcake toppers with mike & ike candies & toothpicks! The cute polka dot cupcake cups / wrappers are from the shop.
