When Dani of Parties Made Pretty mentioned she would be styling a rainbow shoot for our magazine I had no idea what a gorgeous colour scheme would be chosen! As you will see, a rainbow theme really can be done in any colours as all! This shoot was featured in Issue 13 of our latest magazine which you can view HERE.
The stunning backdrop and table setting for this rainbow party truly is a sight to behold!
Parties Made Pretty created the gorgeous balloon garlands which were mixed in with pretty garlands from The Little Shindig Shop!
The gorgeous cakes were also topped with felt toppers by The Little Shindig Shop for a unique look for a rainbow birthday cake
The selection of rainbow birthday cakes are just gorgeous!:
The stunning tableware added the gorgeous colour to the tables to create this boho rainbow vibe – just perfect for a unique kids rainbow party!
I just love this spread showcasing the partyware sourced from Parties Made Pretty, rainbow napkins from Favor Lane, party bags from The Little Shindig Shop and acrylics from Serendipity Design Corner
The kids were well entertained thanks to amazing soft play from Fun HQ and entertainers Born To Sparkle!:
How gorgeous are the colours throughout the softplay?!:
Born To Sparkle kept the kids smiling and sparkling!
Customized illustration of the mother of the birthday girl was created by our member Souvenir of Love
All the gorgeous details along with the large scale setup truly is a rainbow party you will never forget!

You’ll have so much fun putting this rainbow party theme together!
A rainbow party theme is always popular – beautiful and bright for any children’s event! So when it came time for a special Life’s Little Celebrations collaborative shoot for our friends at Lenzo this theme was chosen with the challenge to bring a new twist on this well loved theme – view the Lenzo feature here.
Chantelle from Tiny Tots Events in Melbourne coordinated and styled the shoot and worked with many vendors from Life’s Little Celebrations (vendor credits at the end of this post) to create this truly stunning and unique rainbow party setting.
The balloons featuring in this party from the rainbow arch, to the gold confetti balloons to the gorgeous grey balloon backdrop are totally mind blowing and the work of talented Boutique Balloons in Melbourne:
I love the uniqueness of the 3D backdrop with a little girl painting a rainbow in soft colours with the ribbons flowing down !
The sweet rainbow colours work beautifully with the metallics in the shoot along with the greys/blacks showing how a rainbow does not have to be strictly only about rainbow colours:
The kids setting is just stunning with florals in various colours and a setting any child or adult would love!:
The dessert table was adorned with an array of colourful rainbow inspired desserts. Rather than going with rainbow shaped desserts , the desserts were inspired by the pastel watercolour shades of the rainbow featured in the backdrop:
This sweet invitation which coordinated with the backdrop set the scene for the event with it’s beautiful watercolour rainbow and gold foil:
The design was carried through into the sweet favour tags:
I hope this colourful rainbow party has left you with a smile on your face and feeling inspired for your next celebration you are planning!
This shoot was a collaboration of Life’s Little Celebrations vendors who you can find on the Directory. All credit goes to these talented vendors who brought this rainbow party to life! Ensure you contact them when planning your next event:
