What does a play group of seven colorful little sweethearts do to celebrate the end of summer? A Rainbow Party of course! I was so excited to be a part of this fun event for a Mommy & Me playgroup we belong too. The creative mom’s thought it would be fun to have each girl represent a color in what has to be the cutest rainbow ever…even if they did end up a tad bit out of order!



When looking for styling inspiration I was taken by the vintage lemonade stands I’ve been seeing lately so I thought.. why not a Rainbow Stand?! The stand was complete with a “Rainbows 5 cents” sign, printable banner, and a cute fabric banner I created to top it off. Each girl had a colorful jar of Skittles with their name & coordinating rainbow color. A candy scoop adorns a tag reading “Taste the Rainbow” inviting each guest to create they’re own take-home rainbow treat bag.



Then there was the cake! Confetti cake topped with a charming cake topper by the fabulous Debra of Titi’s Tutu’s, the original creator of Pom Cake Toppers! I was browsing through Debra’s Etsy shop and saw her adorable pom creations and just knew I had to have one in all the colors of the Rainbow!
So in love with the topper she created for us – I can’t say enough about how cute it is! Be sure and take a peek in her shop for all her adorable creations!




Each girl got her fill of sweets! When I asked my little “Purple” if she would be sharing her bag of Skittles with her Mommy.. I was quickly shushed for my suggestion!

The moms wanted to get photos of each girl so balloon rides to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” were called for as a photo opportunity. One of the favorite games quickly became knocking the basket over with friend inside. Good thing it was all in fun and lots of giggles in sued!

(*If you’re wondering about the red splotch on “Purple’s: check… let’s just say Mommy forgot she was wearing very red lipstick that day!)


A big thank you to the fabulous vendors for this event:
