A Rainbow Of Ideas For Your Color-Themed Party

The Martha Stewart Show

I was so excited to receive an invite from Darcy Miller to attend a live taping of the Martha Stewart Show this week, all about her daughter’s third birthday party, a party entirely dedicated to the color purple.

Darcy highlighted a few of the inexpensive, fun ideas she came up with for celebrating her youngest little person with style, and it had me so excited for all the possibilities of color-themed parties. Color-themed! I mean, talk about a simple idea you could embellish to the ends of the earth! Every kid has a favorite color!

After the jump, a few of Darcy’s best ideas for a color-themed birthday party, complete with how-to links!

    From handmade party hats to single color M&Ms, to child-sized boas and tiaras, the party was purple from top to bottom. Darcy discovered that there is a crazy amount of terribly specific party stores on the Internet (hello, beachballs.com) that can satisfy any terribly specific party need. A full list of all the sources she used is available HERE

    A few fun ideas: vuvuzelas can be ordered in any color of the rainbow, and make great noisemakers (just keep them outdoors!). Gum balls and other color-specific candies not only make great snacks but beautiful party decor, and when in a pinch, glazed and frosted donuts from the local bakery can be dusted in colored sugar for a surprisingly elegant look! (Those giant flowers are actually GIANT PIXIE STICKS!)

    All you need for this simple craft is a white tee shirt, some isopropyl rubbing alcohol, and Sharpies. YES, Sharpies! Talk about simple and low fuss! Full instructions for this craft can be found HERE.

    Whoopie pies are not only delicious (and trendy--new cupcake much?), they also have a terribly tasy, terribly color-customizable middle. Genius! And David Crofton, from One Girl Cookies, points out that an adults-only version can be made with Cassis flavoring. Nice. The recipe for these bad boys is available HERE.
