Celebrate Summer with a Rainbow Themed Party

The warm weather has finally arrived! With no rain around to make a rainbow, create your own with a brightly coloured rainbow themed party. The kids will love setting up as much as the party itself – here’s some ideas of what to do.

Set the mood

Great fun can be had decorating a rainbow party. String multi-coloured balloons together to make a rainbow arch or hang rainbow-coloured paper lanterns around the house and garden. Multi-coloured streamers also look great – in fact anything in rainbow colours will work!

Time for Tea

Set the party table with colourful tableware and then serve up an abundance of rainbow-themed food.

Of course fruit kebabs are a perfect rainbow desert, but if you get creative, there is so much more you can do. How about rainbow sandwiches or a vegetable platter with houmous dip?

When you have run out of ideas for rainbow food then use rainbow-coloured serving containers to keep the theme going.

Depending on the age of the children, create a craft themed party with tables set up with rainbow-coloured pencils and paints; or rainbow themed games like pin the pot of gold on the rainbow.


The Cake

If you have the baking skills required, a rainbow cake is an amazing finish to your summer celebration.  If not, a display of rainbow cupcakes will look equally as good.
