Rainbow Birthday Party Ideas

Various ideas I found on pinterest. Some cute ones!

Rainbow Cake

Rainbow Crispy Treats.... Nutritional Atom Bomb.

Rainbow Sprinkled Pretzels... Nom Nom Nom.

Rainbow Jello Cups .... Love! 

Birthday Girl Approved!!

Ginger Ale Soaked Apple Slices

Soak apple slices in ginger ale or lemon aid to prevent browning. Tried this for Big Dude and Ike Ike's lunches. Kept some home in a baggy for me to see how they would turn out for the boys at lunchtime. 

Not nearly as brown as they would have been otherwise, but more than that, they were very tasty!

Berries Soaked in Vinegar... prevent molding. It works! No mold four days later.... 

Kinda mushy though.

Lemon Orzo with Grape Tomato and Asparagus

In the words of my six year old, "Why are you taking pictures of the yucky food?"

Pretty much sums it up. 

I love each of these things... wasn't so great altogether though. Shoulda been.
Kinda disappointing. 

Update:Tomato Cage Christmas Tree

I put more lights on it. It looks better. :)


Which I learned, after using google translate, means Stairway to Heaven. I love that!

I totally dig all things rustic, so when I saw this German "tree", I just had to try it!

Personally, I think it's a win... if a bit lopsided. :)

My biggest concern is keeping the dog from eating it, the 2 year old from confiscating pieces of it, and the four year old from climbing it.

In the words of Miracle Max, "It'll take a miracle."

Pictures don't do it justice...

Baby Buggy Diaper Cake

Wider ribbon next time... definitely ... and a blanket on top...

And to think I gave this as a gift. 

This was incredibly easy to make. The fail was completely my own fault. Wider ribbon... definitely.
