Well, my little girl is officially a one year old and her rainbow first birthday party was a huge success! And I am so excited to share the photos with you! I know I’ve said it before, but I LOVE colour, so this party was so much fun for me to photograph!
I know you tend to see parties set up on a table against a wall, but I didn’t have room for anything like that, so I just set everything out on our kitchen counter and I was really happy with how it looked!
I made 10 tissue paper pom poms, 2 red, 2 orange, 2 yellow, 2 green and 2 blue and hung them from the ceiling (using scotch tape) above the counter:
I bought 4 glass pitchers for $2 each and filled them with blue Gatorade, Lime juice (I added a couple drops of green food colouring to get a brighter colour… shhhh…), pineapple juice, and cranberry juice. (Thank you to my mother in law for the juice!)
A beautiful rainbow vegetable tray (Thank you to my sister for making this!):
Paper plates in red, yellow, green and blue:
Rainbow fruit skewers (Thank you to my cousin-in-law for making these!):
Red, yellow, green and blue napkins:
We had a vase filled with peanut M&M’s:
We had red, yellow, green and blue plastic cutlery in plastic cups. I didn’t need the knives for anything, but I loved how they looked as a group of three, so I set them out anyway:
My mom made gorgeous rainbow jello cups (Thank you so much mom!):
I am so happy with how everything looked! The counter of food was so beautiful!!
Out of all of the first birthday party ideas I could have chosen, I truly loved having the rainbow party theme! It was so colourful, so cheerful and so fun! I’m going to post more details about how everything above was made soon!
