There is something special about the excitement that exudes from children when they see a rainbow! So why not bring that magic of colour in the sky to create a rainbow themed party. It’s suitable for so many different occasions too, birthday parties, baby showers and christenings. It is also a perfect kids party theme to combine with other themes such as unicorns, ice-creams, ponies, disco… just to name a few!
You can literally not have enough colour with a rainbow party theme, and finding all you need to pull it together is made easy thanks to the inspired items and ideas below from our Celebrate Society Members. CLICK on any image to be taken to that business!

Ahhh mint green…a colour I am always tempted to include in my party colour schemes as I just love it!
It goes beautifully with many other colours – seen very often with gold as well as other pastels and would work just as well for a boy’s party with grey, or light blue. Or step out of the box as this post suggests – “Mint to be” on the Oh It’s Perfect blog where Ania (From 2 Love Birds) has teamed mint green with black and white!
All the links are below the inspiration board. If you’re looking for something in mint green that I haven’t included, simply e-mail me at email@example.com and I’ll let you know where to find it. Also make sure you visit the Life’s Little Celebration’s children’s party directory as well in the midst of your party planning!
What are your Christmas colours? It’s a question that seems to be getting discussed a lot lately on facebook.
Do you go traditional red, green and white? Do you like to change it up every year? Or do you stick to the same (but unique) colour palette each time?
We all know Christmas is about a lot more than just the colours we decorate in and it’s important that we don’t put pressure on ourselves as mum’s to have a Christmas tree or dessert table that is ‘magazine worthy’ – especially when you have children who want to be hand’s on in the decorating!
However I always find decorating in a colour scheme (and choosing the colours) is a fun part of the early Christmas preparations!
Here is some colour inspiration for you based starting off with what is fast becoming quite a popular colour combination – bold red and soft aqua:

I love these soft colour palettes of blue with creams and golds for a fresh look:

It’s impossible to collate every possible Christmas colour combination available. So – what are your Christmas colours? Did I include them in this selection or are you doing something different? I’d love to hear from you!
For your little one’s celebration, styling it around colours (as opposed to a specific theme) can work beautifully and yellow and grey are two colours that I am loving together at the moment (and it seem’s alot of you are too!). Of course you can also choose this colour scheme to work in with a specific theme you have chosen as well. It’s perfect for boys, girls or a baby shower!
