So, you are thinking about throwing a rainbow birthday party for your child. Don't do it! OK, I am kidding. It can be a lot of work to put together but you don't have to use all the rainbow party ideas presented here. You can just pick one or two that seem more doable. Or you could do everything. Whether you stay simple or go elaborate, one thing is for sure: the bright colors will automatically bring a smile to your child's face. And that's really what it's all about isn't it? Enjoy your party and these Rainbow Party Ideas!
Here are some of the different things we did for our rainbow party. If there is a link then it means I also have a blog post that explains the how-to aspect.
Tissue Paper Pom Poms
I attached streamers of various colors to some packing tape and hung it up using thumbtacks.
We had a sweets table at our party and I made sure to have plenty of candy on hand. I tried to buy candy that was colorful and then sort it by color to make more of an impact. I found some glass jars (the type pretzel sticks might come in) a few months ago at a yard sale and used those to display the goodies. For the day of the party I added some scoops I found in the kitchen section at Target.

These were super easy to make and a big favorite with the kids. Get some lollipop sticks and place a marshmallow on top. Dip the top part of the marshmallow in water and roll in sprinkles. Display in some Styrofoam. That's it, you're done!
Rainbow Swirl Lollipops:
I got these at Oriental Trading and tried to dress them up by placing them in styrofoam and covering the stryrofoam with some rainbow party streamers.
I ordered some rainbow colored plastic bags from Oriental Trading and they worked out perfectly especially after we added our stickers. To print out these stickers for yourself click here.
For the inside I ordered some rainbow Twizzlers online and got some rainbow pads and crayons from Oriental Trading.
I hope this helps you in your rainbow party planning! Let me know if you use any of these ideas. I am sure your party will turn out great.

Thank you! Your ideas made my 7 year olds birthday beautiful. My kids also made chain links from construction paper in rainbow order, which brought extra color.....

Kyleen, It's not to late to have a rainbow party. Maybe for your 18th?
This rainbow party is intense! I wish I had one of these when I was a kid. I love the rainbow cake; it's gorgeous!
i might use all of it,vicky..they are all so adorable and doable(only because of your great explanations and steps)...but the party might be there after a couple of years only..so bookmarking it.
I LOVE it! What a fun party!
What a lovely party. I love how you covered the oreos.
Holy cow, don't you sleep? Or have 3 small children? I can't imagine putting half of this together, you totally rock. I can't decide which is my favorite between the oreos, cupcakes, or the wow cake. Are you available for hire? 😉
