Rainbow Parties Are Not Just For Kids
My husband and I wanted to host a party with some of our couple friends, so we threw a Colors Party! It was in the middle of winter, so it was a great excuse to bring color into the otherwise bleak months.
I had wanted to throw a Rainbow party for so long, and I'm glad we did. It was a blast!
Color Theme Party Invitations
Going along with our Color theme, I designed these Invitations for our party. They were simple, but contained all the important details: date, time, place, what to bring, and special instructions. If you'd like to have your own color party, you can download editable invitations here.
I really wanted to hype up the party, so I made the invitations extra festive by making some confetti and jazzing up the envelope with some washi tape. It's the little things that make it more exciting.
Rainbow Party Decorations
You can get plenty of decoration ideas when you want to go for a rainbow-themed party. If you have kids coming to the party, you can get multi-colored paper crowns and hats so that they can wear them. You can also keep decorations very simple by adding a colorful balloon banner near the dining table. The red wall is not required (it just happened to be this color when we moved in, but it is long gone now).
Blow up some balloons, attach them to a piece of string and hang them from the wall using washi tape, secured with a small pin or removable Command hook.
Tip: Sprinkle Skittles on the table for an extra burst of color!
RAINBOW PARTY FAVOR IDEAS
The favors doubled as the place settings. Love when that happens! I found printable geometric boxes , stuffed them with Skittles and used a letter magnet to mark each place at the table.
You'll also notice those striped napkins made a fun statement to each setting.
Rainbow Party Dinner Menu
Color Theme Party Main Dish
Hawaiian Haystacks seemed like the perfect meal to serve at a rainbow color party. I made a from-scratch sauce recipe, but your favorite recipe would work too.
Serve this delicious Hawaiian Haystack sauce with rice and colored toppings.
- red tomatoes
- green onions
- purple onions
- yellow pineapple
- orange mandarin oranges
- blue coconut (Yes, the coconut was a stretch, but blue had to be represented!)
Rainbow Jello is the perfect side dish for your color party! This layered jello recipe is a a hit with both kids and adults! You can make it days in advance so it's ready for your color party.
Color Theme Party Dessert
Have each guest bring a snack or dessert in the color they wear! If you don't have your guest dress up, have them bring a rainbow treat or a monochrome snack.

Color Party Photo Booth
We also took photos of all of us decked out in our colored costumes using this DIY Photobooth. I just took scraps of fabric and tied them to string. Simple and quick and free!
And that was our Color Party! See how you can take any theme idea and create an entire party out of it?
