Rainbow and Balloons Birthday Party - Straw flags & cups |

For my youngest son, we decided to make his first birthday party theme a simple one. What one-year-old does not like a colourful party with lots of balloons?

For some reason, I have no photos of this party that we held in 2017 that I could use for this post. I find it difficult to take photos at parties and maybe that is why. I need to do some research on tips for taking photos at parties and do a post about this in the future. Is this something that you struggle with too?

This is a really fun theme as you can use any colour tablecloths, balloons, plates and cups you have available. To make it looked structured and keep with the rainbow theme, I made sure always to group the colours in the same order. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple. This simple step ensures that you strengthen the rainbow theme throughout the decor if you stack cups, plates or snacks.

Food, Drinks & Cake

This party was for a one-year-old, and I really wanted to keep it healthy-er. We had platters of fruits and vegetables with dip. Here as well, I tried keeping with the rainbow colours. I baked mini-cupcakes in vanilla flavour and used 6 colours of icing. I made jelly for the kids in separate see-through bowls and stacked them on top of each other in the colour spectrum.
