Rainbow Birthday!

Just wanted to share a couple of pics from Lil A;s birthday party...can anyone guess the theme? It's oh so subtle! :)

This is a beautiful painting that she created for the party!

Most of the decorations were in the dining room. We had quite a yummy spread!

We had party popcorn, using this recipe! I almost didn't get a picture before it was all gone...can you believe that whole bowl was filled?!? The picture isn't too great and doesn't do justice to how yummy it was, for those who like a bit of salty and sweet. I also had some small popcorn boxes so people could fill it up and enjoy the popcorn wherever they were sitting - big hit! I found the popcorn boxes at Michaels a while ago.

We had a Candy Bar! The guests could put some candy of their choice in the little polks dotted boxes. The jars in front were found at my local Meijer for less than $4.00 each. The rest of the jars were already in my stash and come from IKEA. The milkglass bowl came from a local thrift store.

The birthday girl in all her Rainbow glory!

The birthday cake! Pretty simple on the outside...

The big reveal - a Rainbow cake! Found the inspiration here!

It was a very long day, but she was so happy that it was completely worth all the work. I can't wait for the next birthday, when we can have just as much fun as we did this weekend!
Happy birthday baby girl!
