Party Items

Additional Tip

We combined the 2 iridescent fringe curtains to make a 6″ wide backdrop. For a prettier look, we used a roll of light sky blue teacher’s paper behind the fringe (the paper can be purchased at JoAnn’s or Michaels).

Basic white cake stands and serving trays can be purchased separately from retailers such as Amazon, Target, HomeGoods, and World Market at different price levels. These are a great investment because they can be used over and over again.

Prep

Prepare perfect party food.

Sprinkle Popcorn

Ingredients

  • Unbuttered Popcorn
  • White Chocolate Melting Chips (1 bag)
  • Rainbow Sprinkles (nonpareils)

Directions

Pop the popcorn (or purchase already popped popcorn to make it easier). Melt the white chocolate in the microwave as directed on the package. Place the popcorn in a large pot or pan (line with tinfoil for easy cleanup). Pour melted chocolate over the popcorn and coat the popcorn (recommend using disposable gloves so it’s not such a mess). Sprinkle the rainbow sprinkles on top of the popcorn. Spread the popcorn out on cookie sheets or wax paper to let it dry. Once dry, store the popcorn in storage bags / containers until it is party time.

Assemble

Pull it all together in just a few easy steps.

Styling tips

A Charming Fête shares its top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

The rainbow drip cake is a beautiful option and can be done in buttercream. The gold star sparkler candle included in the box also makes a great cake topper!

Tip 2

For each place setting, use a rainbow ombre lunch plate and rainbow ombre dessert plate, set up pink dipped wood cutlery on the right side over the ombre lunch napkin. Preset clear cups with the metallic gold straws. We recommend a colored beverage like pink lemonade.

Tip 3

Drop off helium balloons at a local party shop. Request balloon pickup no more than 24 hours prior to party. Another alternative is to purchase a disposable helium tank (from Party City) and inflate the balloons yourself.

Tip 4

Other dessert ideas: aside from cake, we displayed cotton candy on sticks, candy-colored macarons, rainbow sugar cookies, sprinkle popcorn, donuts with colored frosting and white chocolate dipped pretzels with sprinkles.

Tip 5

We love flowers and always like to add something fresh to the table. This is optional, but can be done easily with store-bought pink, yellow and purple flowers.

Tip 6

Optional activity for a children’s party: we piped some pastel frosting and had the children decorate sugar cookie cutouts and cupcakes. We used the rainbow striped cupcake liners to hold handfuls of sprinkles at the decorating station. You may also want to consider disposable take home bakery boxes to make transport home easier.
