Rainbow Party Invitations 

To throw this kind of fête, start the excitement from the moment guests receive their invitations! We suggest using bright and bold colors to capture the essence of the rainbow theme. You can also include a playful phrase like, “Follow the rainbow to {name}’s birthday bash!”

If you’re feeling crafty, you can even cut your invitations into the shape of a rainbow or a raincloud. This is a great way to get the birthday girl involved, as she can assist you in the design process! 

Rainbow Decorations

Set the stage for a magical celebration with an array of rainbow party decor. You can create a whimsical party backdrop by grouping bright-colored streamers together and hanging them from the ceiling. 

To add to your party decor, we suggest layering a rainbow birthday party decoration like this vibrant Happy Birthday banner. You can also add a few foil rainbow balloons to really make the space pop! 

Rainbow balloon arch decoration.

If you’re looking for something bigger, DIY rainbow balloon arches are sure to brighten up any bash! Make your own by arranging balloons in color order (à la ROYGBIV). Then, tie them together to form an arch shape. Cluster white balloons on either side of your arch to create dreamy cloud embellishments!

Get a similar effect with this fabulous rainbow balloon arch kit. It comes with all of the balloons you’ll need, including some dazzling gold streamer tassels, to DIY the rainbow. Either way, balloon decorations are a top-tier rainbow theme party idea. From rainbow baby showers to Pride parties, they’re guaranteed to delight your party guests, (and inspire some fun photo-ops!)

Pastel rainbow party decorations.

When it comes to rainbow party decor, the opportunities are endless! Meaning, these ideas are just as wonderful for a pastel rainbow birthday party or a boho rainbow birthday party! All you have to do is swap out the brighter colors for some pastel shades.

Make your event more elegant by adding a variety of colors and a touch of refinement with flower arrangements. We suggest combining a variety of flower types in every color of the rainbow. Simply arrange them in a metallic vase to create the most eye-catching floral centerpiece.  

Rainbow Tablescape

Rainbow party supplies to use for any rainbow theme party.

The color craze shouldn’t stop at the decor. So, make sure you bring all of those bright colors into your table settings, too! For a classic rainbow party tablescape, we recommend layering multi-colored striped plates, napkins, and cups together. Then, add some rainbow-shaped plates and coordinating confetti to complete the look.

If you’re looking for pastel rainbow birthday party supplies, you can never go wrong with pink rainbows and hearts. You can even pair this specific selection with purple checkered party supplies and this pretty felt rainbow garland. Pastel perfection! 

Rainbow Party Food

Rainbow party food ideas using fruit skewers.

From appetizers to desserts, there are countless creative ways to incorporate the vibrant colors of the rainbow into your party menu. To start, we recommend serving rainbow fruit skewers featuring watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, and pineapple. 

Rainbow fruit and vegetable charcuterie board.

You can also create a fruit charcuterie board and incorporate some savory options with colorful vegetables. Speaking of veggies, rainbow vegetable wraps are another delicious option. You can make these by filling tortillas with a medley of colorful veggies, then serving them with a flavorful dip. 

Rainbow cupcakes for a fun rainbow party dessert idea.

Though, the most important element of any rainbow party is the dessert. Rainbow cupcakes or cake pops are always a huge hit. You can use a fun-fetti cake mix or add rainbow food coloring to your batter. 

Finally, embellish them with colorful frosting and rainbow sprinkles. You can even turn this into a fun rainbow party activity, and have each guest decorate their own treat!

Rainbow treats set out for a rainbow dessert table idea.

There are many ways to make your dessert table dazzle. For example, we love the idea of arranging a few treats in various colors on the table in a rainbow shape. You can even serve some tartlets and French desserts to add a touch of sophistication to the spread. 

Rainbow birthday cake ideas.

No birthday bash is complete without a brilliant birthday cake! Similar to cupcakes, all you really need for the best rainbow birthday cake is lots of colorful frosting and sprinkles. To complete the look, add an array of rainbow birthday candles or a rainbow theme cake topper

Rainbow Party Activities 

Every rainbow bash should be bursting with fun, so make sure to include lots of exciting rainbow party games and activities. You can set up an art station where partygoers can create their own rainbow-themed crafts using paper, paints, and glitter. And if you’re hosting a rainbow unicorn birthday party, these unicorn-themed coloring posters are the perfect party craft! 

Scavenger hunts are always a blast! Simply come up with a few clues and hide them on various colored items around your party space. (For example, hide one clue on a red balloon, one clue on an orange hat, etc). 

You can even have the clues lead to exciting rainbow treasures like party blowers and party hats. And for the grand finale, you can have the final clue lead to some hidden rainbow party favors. (These darling mini pinatas make the sweetest souvenirs!)

That concludes our roundup of rainbow birthday party ideas. We hope this journey through vibrant decorations, delicious treats, and whimsical activities has inspired you!
