Rainbow First Birthday


I had almost no time to prepare for my daughter's first birthday and I did not want to spend a lot of money. I organized a cake and sweets party and invited a few friends and neighbors. I took a couple of super easy DIY projects and I did almost everything with a pack of colored paper and tissue paper.

Design Inspiration

I wanted lots of color for a dreamy look and I wanted to be able to use all the materials I had, without having to stick to a color pallet.

Decorating Style

Modern, bright and simple. I love reusing and re-purposing old stuff.

Project Details

I created a Pinterest party board where I kept all the party ideas and tutorials.

My favourite and most inpiring blogs for were:

Favorite Items

the cake top and the rainbow zig zag courtain!


You do not need to do too much and spend a lot of money to have a beautiful birthday party. I thought of letting it go, after all my daughter was only turning 1 and she will not remmenber, but the feeling of her party, the pictures, the love she received will definitely have an impact on who she is becoming. Enjoy the process!

There's really a different sense of accomplishment and satisfaction when you've done everything or most things yourself. Great job on the colorful DIY decorations. Rainbow colors always make kids happy.
