Earlier this Summer Madeline attended her friend Daphne’s 5th birthday party. When the invitation came in the mail I remember thinking that the theme was unique, ya know, something other than the typical Disney-character-themed parties she frequently attended (Not that there is anything wrong with a good princess party!). I was intrigued and tried to envision how her mom, Tisha, would create a whole party around the rainbow theme.
I completely underestimated Tisha’s creative abilities (never again!) and my mouth dropped open when I walked in the door and saw the truly beautiful, magical party she had created for her daughter. It was stunning! I raced home to get my camera because I knew instantly that I had to share this fantastic party with all of you!
Tisha credits Pinterest for helping her come up with the creative aspects of this colorful 5th birthday party, but it is obvious Tisha’s incredible talent was also a key factor to making this party so special.
Color Me Pretty
Each guest was asked to wear their favorite color to the party. How cute! Madeline chose to wear red and told me she wanted every color of the rainbow in her ponytail. Here’s what we came up with….
Daphne had the most adorable rainbow birthday party frock, complete with rainbow-striped leg warmers! She totally rocked her outfit! She is modeling her outfit below!
Decorations and Treats
No detail was overlooked in designing this party. Everything from the snacks and decor to the crafts and activites were shining bright with color.
During the party the girls strung rainbow-colored beads to make name bracelets (ugh…it pains me that I don’t have a picture!!), painted rainbows with streamers and puffy clouds and played with gushy, rainbow-colored balls. They also had a rockin’ dance party with the gorgeous rainbow wands that Tisha hand-made for each guest.
I couldn’t imagine the party getting any more spectacular until I saw the cupcakes that Tisha baked for the party. Yup…they were rainbow cupcakes topped with gold flakes from the pot of gold! Gorgeous!
Dreams really DO come true!
