As children, we often wondered what lay at the end of the rainbow. Surely it would be magical. For the next brilliant birthday bash you host, let that lovely arch of colors be your guide and create a rainbow party. Turn a buffet table into party central by adding a handmade ruffled cloth and bunches of balloons in happy hues. Then assemble a appetite-pleasing palette with fresh fruits for all to enjoy. From napkins and plates to utensils and straws, each celebration necessity can also add a splash of color.
An art station with paint—for brushes and fingers—allows pint-size Picassos to make mini masterpieces, and aprons with iron-on emblems protect party clothes without hindering artistic expression. When the fun is done, present a pot of gold that contains coins of the chocolate variety—a sweet reminder that there’s truly treasure at rainbow’s end.
