Party in Rainbow
There's a slight art to throwing a party in the colors of the rainbow: keep your colors bright! No wallflower shades allowed. Have your guests dress in pop-y colors, and serve up a rainbow jellow dessert. Top it off with a mod rainbow-hued invitation, a rainbow heart cake, and a ruffled gown. Do it for your next party, your rehearsal dinner, your big day. Life doesn't get much brighter than this.
It's all shoppable. Click any image for details on prices and sourcing.
