Rainbow Birthday Party... Oh my!
Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I've heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream,
Really do come true.
Ahh, that song holds a special place in our family's heart for a few different reason, and I love it so!
Every year right toward the end of June we come across a beautiful event. My sweet baby girl's half-birthday! Yes, I'm one of those Moms. With a birthday the day before New Year's Eve, it makes for a difficult time for this mom to plan a party and actually have her friends in town and so many presents at once, shall I go on?
In any case, we do half-birthdays! This year we went with a Rainbow theme. It turned out to be such a fun theme with of course bright colors and so much to work with. DNH Girl asked for the rainbow theme just about a month prior to the party, so it did give a bit of time to scope out a couple of places around town. We ended up finding most of the supplies at Target and Party City, but also peppered in a little DNH creativity along the way.
Desire from Crafting While They Nap made the adorable rainbow dress.
