For almost a year, Ainsley had been asking for a "Rainbow Party" when she turns 3 years old. Sure, sounds easy enough.
Two months before the scheduled party date, she throws me for a loop and says she wants a "Kitty Cat Party" too. Oh, okay. So, you want Kitty Cats AND Rainbows at your party?
Took me a while to come up with ideas, but I think it all worked out great and she was super pleased (most important!)
We had 26 kids (seriously!) and around 28 adults.
Thank goodness the weather held out for the first 2 hours of the party and all of the kids (and adults) got to play outside.
Ready for lots of pictures?
Her entire outfit was made by me, except for the adorable rainbow hair clippies, which I purchased at this etsy shop
We made 26 kitty ears and 26 pairs of kitty paws for all the kids
Ainsley, all dressed up before her party started. Super excited!
Lots and lots of decorations and food
|Complete with kitty cupcakes|
|And rainbow cupcakes, of course|
|And cute signs|
(all of the printables can be found HERE)
|Can't forget the rainbow cake!|
|So, basically a table full of food dye and sugar:)|
|Let's not forget about me cheesing it next to my sugary table|
|With my mum|
(anyone notice my awesome shirt? haha)
The food was all placed in the kitchen
The decorations were all throughout the downstairs
I quickly made that rainbow balloon arch the morning of the party.
I would highly suggest making it the night before to save your sanity.
I made the "Pin the Tail on the Kitty" game the night before.
Again, I do not recommend leaving everything until the last minute. You might drive yourself crazy.
Then, the festivities began and it was a blast!
We handed out the kitty ears and paws and it was so incredibly adorable to see a bunch of little kids running around "meowing" and scratching the ground like little kitties :)
Double roller coaster races!
Even the adults joined in :)
Look at all of those kids!
So glad we rented that tent/canopy!
Lots of people hung out in the shade
Pin the Tail on the Kitty time!
Cake time! Look at that smile!
All of the kids said "Ooooh!" when I cut up the cake
She got an amazing amount of awesome stuff!
Trust me, I know. I had to clean up the aftermath
It was a very fantastic day and Ainsley thoroughly enjoyed it!
Thanks to all my amazing friends and family that made it a success!
