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, that can satisfy any terribly specific party need.

    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!)

    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.
