If you’re searching around for a suitable baby shower theme that isn’t diaper pins and teddy bears, let me just say that a solid rainbow party is always a crowd-pleasing favorite.
I know it’s slowly becoming an over-worked Pinterest-driven party theme, but how much more classic and evergreen can you get than rainbows? It’s RAINBOWS for Pete’s sake. It’s happiness and merriment bursting from vibrant colors — the perfect way to welcome a new baby into this world.
And one of the best parts of a rainbow party is, undoubtedly, the food. Or should I say the desserts. Because if there’s anything better than a rainbow in the sky, its a rainbow in your mouth. And pregnant women are known to like yummy things in their mouths.
If you’re debating on a rainbow-theme baby shower, maybe these 10 rainbow food ideas will sell the idea:
