Welcome to my blog!

This is a place to share my many ideas, (along with a story or two), about party planning from the theme to the thank you note, organization from your closets to your kid's artwork, and home decor, from wall color to window treatments. I have a passion for graphic design, fine art, photography, interior design and a great party! Creativity and the visually aesthetic get my juices flowing and I hope this blog can be a place to have fun exchanging ideas and resources and help your creative juices flow too!

Rainbow Connection

  I titled this post, "Rainbow Connection" not just because I've loved the song ever since I heard Kermit the Frog sing it for the first time when I was eleven years old, but because what could be a more cheerful way to celebrate the connections we have with the special people in our lives, than by being together, surrounded by all the colors of the RAINBOW?  

I would love to throw a party with this theme; the possibilities are endless.  My daughter has already informed me that for her next birthday she'd like a rock star theme to be held at our local arts & crafts store and I'm assuming my son and husband won't want a rainbow themed party for theirs.  I may just have to throw myself a birthday party or perhaps just a party for no occasion other than to celebrate friendship and summer.  One doesn't really need a reason to throw a party, after all.  One simply needs people to help celebrate the festivities and I think I can manage that :)

Celebrations and concepts, that could incorporate this color scheme:
Baby Shower (Only Baby Showers)
Bat Mitzvah
Gay Pride/Support (Over the Rainbow Shop)
St. Patrick's Day (Oh Goodie Designs) (Invitation Consultants)
Sweet Sixteen
Wizard of Oz (Bubble and Sweet)

Here are some really great element, mainly involving food, I've come upon that would make all kinds of RAINBOW'd affairs extra colorful and bright:
