Rainbow Themed Birthday Invitations And Favors
You can purchase rainbow birthday invites and favors from online stores like Zazzle, Ebay, Etsy and Amazon. Alternatively, if you want to go the DIY route and save some money, you can make your own invitations by using different colored sheets of cardstock to create a multicolored-rainbow invite.
Using a single sheet of cardstock as a base, simply cut the rest of the colored sheets into strips and paste on the base-sheet. Fold it in half when it’s dry and all you have to do is use a marker to write out your message. You can also paste little cloud shapes cut out of white cardstock on the multicolored strips, to create a simple and colorful rainbow invite.
You can also purchase rainbow themed favors or simply make your own! You can fill goodie-bags with multicolored candy like skittles or m&ms, homemade lollipops and colorfully frosted rainbow cookies. Add little tags to the goodie-bags with your little invitees names on them for a personalized touch.
Colorful Rainbow Birthday Decorations
It is fairly easy to purchase colorful decorations for your rainbow birthday party at party stores. If you want to make your own rainbow themed decorations, you will need balloons, streamers, cardstock and ribbons in different colors. Blow up the balloons and using glitter pens, draw rainbow and cloud motifs lightly on their surface, and then tie them up in threes using ribbons in different colors for extra decoration.
Alternatively, you can also paint these balloons with rainbow stripes. You can use these balloons to decorate the corners of your home and you can save a few for your little guests. Using cardstock you can make multicolored hanging lanterns with streamers to hang from the ceiling. You can also twist different colored streamers together into a spiral coil, and then use them around to decorate walls, bannisters and even the ceiling if you like!
If you’re good with a paint brush you can draw, paint and cut out leprechauns and pots of gold out of cardstock and use these cut-outs to decorate the walls and doors. Using a string of rainbow colored pennants to decorate your ceiling is also a cute idea.

When it comes to planning the rainbow birthday menu rainbow cookies, cloud cookies, layered rainbow cakes, colorful cupcakes and colorful drinks would be perfect for the party.
