Rainbow Party

Two wonderful party ideas that have me inspired lately:

First, a rainbow cake. It is so wonderful!

Second, a balloon party. I’m still not sick of balloons. I buy them every time I go to the grocery store and they make me happy EVERY time. This could be pulled off for not too much money, it would just take some time to blow them all up.

    So beautiful! I love that cake! I posted about this mondrian-inspired cake recently; I think I'm going to have to play with non-flavor-offending food dyes soon…

    Here is the original source on the rainbow cake – I agree – such a lovely colour palate.

    The cake is gorgeous. And the balloons are lovely. Completely reminds me of the movie UP. Just saw it on dvd and cried my eyes out.

    That birthday cake is too cool. I can't imagine how tedious it would be to recreate.

    This reminds me of the Rainbow Bright Party I had when I was three. My mom made rainbow colored Playdough. Perhaps I'll have a rainbow cake and balloon party for my 30th…hmmm

    I love rainbow cakes, too! I'm thinking of doing one for my son's birthday this May. How much fun would the kids have cutting in to that? Not to mention me.

    I LOVE the balloon party! Except it makes me so sad with the near-extinct helium shortage: http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2007-12-02-Helium_N.htm.

    Love the cake, LOVE the balloons (but can you imagine how much that would cost?!). I found some step-by-step instructions on how to make a rainbow cake here:
