Super easy rainbow birthday party that kids will love. Including simple ideas for rainbow decorations and food that can easily be recreated. Use items from dollar stores to create an easy but fun party that both boys and girls will love.
A rainbow birthday party is a fantastic theme for both boys and girls. It is an incredibly vibrant theme and you can have so much fun with it.
This rainbow party was held by my friend for her son’s 2nd birthday. The kids all had a wonderful time and my daughter certainly loved all the colorful decoration. It is a delight to be able to share this party with you.
Gemma said about the party planning: “I needed an easy theme as I didn’t have to much time to prepare. My aim was to make it colorful and inviting for toddlers, and to supply activities that toddlers could get involved with.
I also wanted parents to relax knowing their child was entertained and happy. As usual I trawled through Pinterest to give me ideas to use or bounce off of.
Finding color supplies is really easy and the food was fun too. I’m not a great baker and didn’t have much time to do it so went for something simple that looked visually Dazzling.
My favorite was the party favor boxes. I dislike sending small, unusable, breakable items home. I wanted to fill the box with things the toddlers could use or play with. I got some great feed back from my friends regarding the favor boxes.
Overall I just love planning parties for Alistair with many more to come.”
Rainbow Party Decorations
Decorating for a rainbow birthday party does not need to be lavish or expensive. This party demonstrated perfectly how to obtain an outstanding look without breaking the bank.
I love how the rainbow was incorporated behind and above the food table to really give the impression that you were under a rainbow. It’s so simple to do but certainly very effective.
She even included some white fluffy clouds made out of tissue paper pom poms. Everywhere you looked there was a splash of color. Just as a rainbow party should be.
Rainbow Birthday Party Games
It is always a great idea to have games and activities at young children’s parties. This ensures that the kids are entertained, but it also ensures that you are not stressed during the party trying to figure out how to keep the kids occupied. At the end of the day, the happier the children are, the happier the parents are.
I love all the activities that Gemma had planned for the kids. All the activities were simple yet incredibly effective.
The rainbow drop cartoons made out of milk cartons and pom poms were an absolute hit with the kids. If stuck for ideas a dress up area is always going to put a smile on the kids faces too.
Rainbow Party Food Ideas
The great thing about a rainbow party is that anything goes on the food table, and the more color you can incorporate the better.
There was a plentiful selection of both sweet and savory with all the kids favorites. Some of the favorites included fairy bread, mini rainbow cupcakes, tiny teddy cars and of course rainbow jelly.
Gemma made a wonderful kit kat and smarties cake which looked fantastic as a centrepiece and was enjoyed by all.
When thinking about what good to serve just think bright, multi colored and fun.
Rainbow Party Favors
Party favors are a lovely token to be given to kids after a party. Gemma made up a favor box for each child which included small items such as play dough, rainbow pencil, stickers, pin wheel.
It was certainly a colorful box of treats.
The box’s were all different colors with a rainbow sticker on the front to keep in with the theme.
A rainbow birthday party is always going to be a great theme for kids. It’s bright and will guarantee to make your guests smile. Regardless of age, this can be an awesome theme to run with.
With so many simple ways to create the party you really are spoilt for choice when it comes to putting the party decor and food together.

Catherine Holt says
You did an absolutely wonderful job Gemma, thanks for sharing it with us 🙂
Catherine that party looks fun! I have a question, where did you buy those favor boxes from?
Catherine Holt says
This wasn’t a party that I styled so I don’t know for sure where Gemma got the favor box’s from, but I have seen these in most craft stores and even places like Cheap as Chips and the Reject Shop. Otherwise I’m sure Amazon would have a great supply too 🙂
