Avery & Lorenzo's Rainbow Party

Avery and Lorenzo had their third annual birthday party!!  Rozannah and I had so much fun planning all the details for the perfect rainbow bash! 

We went a little extra crazy this year and made the kids shirts to coordinate with the party.  I made Ave this Rainbow Rosette adorned tee and Zannah made Enzo the most adorable rainbow bike tee with buttons for wheels.
Number Three Rainbow Pinata.
The finished dessert table turned out so adorable!!
Rainbow Cake and Sorted M&M Candies.
We wanted a beverage to go with the party.  So we filled these cute water bottles with clear koolaid and hand dyed each one with food coloring to simulate the full spectrum of the rainbow.  It looked really cool.

Rainbow Colored fruit Kabobs!
 Candy Covered Oreos!
Zannah took on the cake and I made the cake decor!  It was adorable!
Dipped Pretzels with rainbow sprinkles.
Sorted Gumballs & Super Jaw breakers


Enzo and Ave another year older together!

Ez grillin' the steak and chicken kabobs!



Avery blowing out the candles...minus the singing.

Cutting into the rainbow cake...The kids loved it!
Zannah and I trying to hold the cake together after we cut the first slice.  So lets just say we learned not to let a cake sit outside in 85 degree weather for a few hours before you cut it.  Opps!!
Pinata Time!

Some of the kids who came to Party with us!

Baby Greyson, relaxin' with Grandma Bev.
By the end of the party most of the guests ended up cooling off in the pool...full clothed!  It was that hot!

Avery opened a few birthday gifts after the party.  She is all about Princess this year.  She was so happy to get the Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Tiana dresses to add to her growing collection.  It was such a fun day!!

I love your decorations. My favorite is definitely the paper rosette's. I did a google search and found this tutorial for them. http://www.paper-source.com/ideas/How-To-Paper-Rosette.pdf I just noticed lots of people asking about a tutorial. I can't wait to make these. Thanks so much for the inspiration. My daughter is already asking for me to make her pink ones.

Holly left a website for the rosettes. I checked it out. Looks fairly simple. I'm doing a rainbow party for my 7yr old in a few months

Did anyone find out where to get the water bottles?

Candi & Ezra said...

We got the water bottles at Sam's Club. They are called aqua pods. I'm pretty sure they sell them at target, most grocery stores, etc.
