Color your party with a vibrant palette.
Okay you caught us—this isn’t as much a party theme as it is a color palette. Absorb the vibrancy of the rainbow into the overall party ambience with bright food, lush florals and decorations that follow the color order of the rainbow. In case you forgot the school trick, just think of "Roy G. Biv" (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet).
A rainbow party is great for a bridal or baby shower, a birthday celebration or casual cocktail event. Add some whimsy with iridescent accents, or for something more modern, pick two similar hues like blue and green or red and orange and go with an ombré palette instead.
