Wow! What a scorcher of a Summer we’ve been having in the U.K.
I haven’t done a party post for ages, so how about a Rainbow party?
Perhaps it’s my subconscious telling me that we need some rain in the dry heat, for our rainbow to appear? Sure enough, it rained last weekend.
Why not bake or buy a Rainbow cake with layers of pretty colours when cut? Nowadays, Rainbow cakes are easy to buy in bakeries or even your local high street supermarket. Step 2 Decorate with Rainbow party accessories.
I have hung a rainbow decor, made from what appears to be colourful pipe cleaners, above my cake. I used a Command mini hook to hang up my decorative rainbow.
As the party area was only temporary, I didn’t want to cause marks or holes in the wall.
The Command hook was easy to use, you just need to place the adhesive strip against the wall hook on one side and stick the hook on the wall using its other sticky side.
I applied pressure on the hook against the wall, to secure it before attaching my decor.
Removing the hook was just as easy. Just pull the clear plastic adhesive strip vertically downwards, parallel to the wall surface, and out pops the hook.
If it is a kid’s party, it could be fun to get them to make their own take home gifts. Why not recycle colourful wrapping paper for your little guests to cut and place in frames.
They could even decorate the wall around the party table with their creations.
For adults, you could perhaps use more ornate frames and cool wallpaper designs to cut out.
Again, as we do not want to create holes in the walls, I have used my trusted friend, Command picture hanging strips to hang up the frames. You can read all about how to use them here. Step 4 + 5 Decorate the party table with a rainbow table cloth and coloured garlands.
I found some colourful garlands to hang on a rainbow coloured table cloth. I used Command decorating clips to hold up my garland. Step 6 Colourful balloons
This could be in the form of rainbow patterned paper cups, plates or straws. Aren’t these party cups super cute? So, that concludes my 7 easy steps to creating a Rainbow party. I couldn’t have done it without these amazing Command products.
Hope you have enjoyed this post and I’m quietly wishing for a rainbow to appear in our skies soon.
