rainbows galore

Rainbow birthday party prep is in full swing at my place, so the apartment is looking a little ... colorful (meaning scraps and threads and cardstock covering every inch of space).

Not sure that it is healthy to have a favorite pile of serger scraps, but if it was, this would be mine:


One thing I did to save time (and money) was to use an e-vite to the party.  I've never been a huge fan of them, but am recently converted to Paperless Post.   They have a beautiful selection of letterpressed stationery that you can customize and send out digitally.  It even comes delivered (to your inbox) in an envelope!  How's that for cute.

Paperless Post is not totally free, because you do have to buy "stamps" to send them out, but it is really well-priced.  They gave me a bunch of stamps and coins (used for designer cards and special customizations like an envelope liner) just for signing up, so my e-vite for this party was free.  Can't beat that!  Here's what I chose for the party:


p.s. Paperless Post is not sponsoring this post - I just like them!

I just had a rainbow themed party for my little girl's 1st birthday too. You can check out the post on her party for some possible inspiration:

I did a rainbow party for my little girl 2 weeks ago. 1 idea I loved that you could try- i made a giant rainbow on the wall using paint samples from Walmart/Home Depot. FREE! I didn't post too much but you can look at the last two posts on my allisonmadeit.blogspot.com. Sorry not so many pics though- I have my party on our private family blog mostly. Thanks for sharing all your ideas with us all! Have fun prepping. You're little girl is darling.
