Home Is Where My Story Begins

Rainbow Birthday Party

Two weeks of birthday celebrations have finally come to an end for my little girl.  Her birthday was in August, but we decided to wait until school started before having a party with her friends.  She didn’t really have a strong preference, this year, about decorations or a theme.  That was good news for me, because I’ve seen so many cute ideas on Pinterest lately!

We went with a rainbow theme, which thrilled my kids to no end.  I’m not a huge fan of dyes and food coloring in my kids’ food, so when my daughter saw the bright colors, her eyes lit up.  It was certainly a special birthday treat for her.

We made rainbow cupcakes, with rainbow cupcake toppers.

There were rainbow plates and M&M candies. Boy, I’m glad they sell M&M’s already sorted by color.

My kids were excited to tell everyone that their mom decided to do a plain old white cake this year.  The little rainbow bunting was a hint of the surprise to come.


Six layers of rainbow loveliness! 

I won’t lie. The cake, cupcakes, and decorations were a lot of work (and dishes), but nothing more than I usually do for my kids’ birthdays.  The result and “happy” birthday girl were worth the work!

Happy baking! (And Happy Birthday to my big 8 year old!)
