Clara wanted a RAINBOW themed 5th birthday party, so that's what she got! It was a lot of fun to plan and she had the best time at her party! We celebrated her big day on December 12th. Lots of friends and family came to help us celebrate and love on Clara so that made her day extra special.
We used our community room again which works so well (except for when you lock yourself out right before the party trying to snap a photo of the entrance! It added a little
crazy excitement to the morning but management came to the rescue before any guests arrived.)
Michael and I created a photo booth out of tablecloths and tulle. :)
Clara's favorite thing right now is crafting so I set up a craft table.
I love how her paper fans turned out. We transferred them to the wall in Clara's room after the party. :)
The kiddos colored rainbows...
and made rainbow colored bead necklaces.

We had her party in the morning so we had rainbow sprinkle donuts, rainbow fruit, OJ and coffee.
"Somewhere over the rainbow..." <3
And Clara requested that we incorporate Rainbow Dash in the decorations. :)
