August is the month of birthdays for our family. There’s my nephew, my brother-in-law. my daughters, and mine. There has been much cake eating.
We had what was possibly the happiest birthday party ever to celebrate M’s third birthday. What’s happier than a rainbow party? Everything was bright and colorful and made you want to smile. We had a sprinkle cake the kids oohed over and spent the bulk of the party trying to sneak a bite (even the bigger kids), rainbow fruit salad, rainbow rice krispie treats (made with Fruity Pebbles-also a huge hit with kids and adults alike), rainbow punch, and rainbow themed treat bags.
Not only was it a very happy party, it was a very easy party to put together. Easy is key with a newborn in the house. We got most of the decorations on clearance from Target earlier this summer. Our cake was a simple vanilla cake with homemade buttercream frosting and, as you can see, gobs of sprinkles. I found dozens of rainbow themed snack ideas on Pinterest and went with what was easiest. Our party favors were mini rainbow suckers and chocolate coins.
