Photo Album: Brynlee's Rainbow Party



























Giving credit:
*Strawberry skewer toppers printed from here.
*Idea for pot-o-gold birthday invite from here.
*Rainbow cake recipe and idea from here.
*Easter grass supplied by this punk.  Love ya, Kali Jo!
*Cake made by MirandaMost photos were also taken by Miranda.  All the good ones anyway. . . I took the rest.  She also helped decorate and brainstormHave I mentioned how cool Miranda is?  Because seriously, way cool.
*Piñata hung by Spencer.  I believe in dividing up birthday party labor equally.  Spencer was in charge of hanging up the piñata, chillin’ with Jace {who wasn’t a bit interested in joining in on the party} and cleaning up the Easter grass.  And I did the rest.  I considered responsibilities split right down the middle.  There was a crap load of Easter grass, people.  And just for the record, Spence started a tater tot on fire during the par-tay.  Little tiny tater-tot fire in our oven.  No joke.

*This post is also being used as my Project 52: Glimpse into Motherhood post.
Because to me motherhood is fourteen hundred million hours scanning the grocery ailes to find rainbow loot. 
And motherhood is also a big ole' scissor blister on your right hand from crafting all things rainbow.

Let me be the first to say how AWESOME this party was. I want a rainbow party. but only if Kim will put it together. You and everyone who worked on this did an awesome job. I remember my 5th birthday and I know there is no way Brynlee will ever forget her's either. You win ten-thousand AWESOME mom points.

Fabulous birthday party and loved all preparations. Was looking for similar ideas as have to arrange niece’s birthday party at one of popular New York venues and will definitely use this décor idea, especially buntings and tissue poms.
