Chloe’s Rainbow Themed Party

It is no secret I love party planning so when I saw a rainbow cake on Pinterest and fell in love I knew that would be the theme for Chloe’s party. After all, I can only get a way with picking the theme (and having theme parties) for the girls for so long 😉

For the mantel I kept it simple with her monthly photo banner, a rainbow pillow, wooden ONE letters I covered in craft paper and a photo of Chloe from her photo shoot.

The monthly photo banner is my favourite, I did one for Avery too and will keep them both as a keepsake – I don’t keep a lot!

Treat bags for the kids was also simple, sidewalk chalk and candy bags with gold foiled

Of course we had to do a “1” balloon bouquet which Chloe loves and plays with daily:

I had a later afternoon party to accommodate Chloe’s nap so food was a lot easier than a lunch party. The food:

Rainbow bars

Sugar Cookies

Candy “buffet”

Fruit Tray

Veggies & dip

Assorted Chips


And then there was the cake! I have no words for this cake and it was amazing (and huge!), the time that went into this was huge I am sure (no, I did not make it).

She even made a little banner on top – which I also kept:

We did a backdrop behind the food table (thank you Pinterest again) which was super easy but a tad time consuming – thank you to Chad for tackling this!

The fabric banner on the table was a Michaels clearance item that I am hanging up in the playroom now. I thought it came down but turned out it did not, so I spent a hour knotting on the fabric and then my Mom finished it for me 🙂

Food table all set-up, I am so happy with how it turned out!

I made a fake chalk sign with Chloe’s one year stats for on the table as well:

My last banner I made was a “ONE” banner for Chloe’s seat that lasted .2 seconds before she ripped it off. Sigh 😉

Chloe had a blast with the cake, and got right into it:


It was a relaxed party, and a smaller crowd than usual but it was nice to talk to everyone more than most parties we have with 40+ people. Even though we said no gifts, some people brought some so we ended the party with opening those up:

Chloe and some of her party guests:

The best part of the day was seeing how much Chloe loved it all, she is an attention lover like her sister so all the attention on her was her jam!

    My father passed away soon after my birth, and my mother struggled throughout her life to give me a better life. Now, when I have started earning, I planned a surprise birthday party for my mother with the help of Mr. Bonilla, who provides low-cost furniture rental for parties and events. My mother was delighted to see her friends and loved ones in the party after a long time.
