The main colours for this Rainbow Party is the Rainbow colours - the rainbow colours in order: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.

Decorate the party area with colourful balloons and streamers, Hang rainbow streamers from the door frame for the guests to walk through. For extra touch put coloured cellophane paper on each window, the party room will be filled with different colours (if you do it right this can make the whole party room very beautiful).

Get a colourful tablecloth and use colourful tableware, (in the rainbow colours). Put colourful streamers in rainbow colours across the tables, coming halfway down. Put colourful roses (different colour roses together), in a vase tightly bound with a green bow in the middle of the table for centrepiece.

Or have a cupcake tree for centrepiece, (it's made in metal and you can get them at your craft store or party store). Put your colourful cupcakes (ice the cupcakes in different colours) on the tree, this looks amazing!

Games & Activities

Your princess will most probably not be interested in playing games with other kids, as babies are more interested in playing with their parents. But if you are going to invite older kids, here are some awesome Toddler Birthday Party Ideas for games and activities.

Rainbow Names
Is a good game to introduce the children to each other at the start of the party. Let the children sit in a circle and sing "what is your.. what is your.. rainbow name" the person next to you has to answer "my name is.. my name is Anna" then you ask the group "what is.. what is.. her rainbow name" and then everyone answers "her rainbow name.. her rainbow name.. is Anna". Do this at least 2 times and everyone will know each others names.

Rainbow Chairs
Similar to Musical Chairs, put colourful balloons next to each chair and play musical chairs. The winner gets all the balloons!

Which Colour
Start by showing the kids how to play, try to explain a product, a fruit, something that has a colour. For example an "apple", you tell the kids it's a fruit, it's round, it grows on trees etc. The kids then have to guess it's a red apple. The person who guesses right has his/her turn to explain a colourful fruit, vegetable etc. and the other kids have to guess. Let the kids sit in a circle.

Rainbow Artist
Assign guests a colour, give them magazines and ask them to cut out anything of that colour and paste the pictures on to a sheet of paper. Give them crayons, markers, pastels, glitter and encourage them to be productive. Tell them they are artists and to produce a work of art in their colour.

Rainbow Hunt
Similar to Treasure Hunt, let the kids look for rainbow related items.

Rainbow Necklace & Bracelets
Buy pearls in different colours and let the girls of the party make their own rainbow necklace and bracelet. Provide them with blunt needles threaded with string.
