We chose a rainbow theme for Florence’s 1st Birthday party and along with the decorations and games we also tied in the food with it. I got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and loved creating the menu for her big day. I thought I would share some of the Rainbow Themed Party Food Ideas we served up.
Bouncy Marshmallow Clouds
I picked up these giant marshmallows from Tiger and they make fab clouds!
Fairy bread is always a winner at kids parties and was a magical addition to our birthday banquet! Simply spread Nutella on one slice of bread and then on another slice, cut out a star shape with a cookie cutter. Sandwich them together and sprinkle some 100s and 1000s over the top and you’re done! Super simple and we used the cut out stars for another party food below.
Rainbow Fruit Skewers
Florence would honestly eat fruit for every single meal if she could and so it was always going to feature in her party menu. These yummy fruit skewers went down a treat with the little ones. We used Strawberries, Raspberries, Watermelon balls (Frozen), Satsumas, Pineapples (Frozen), Mango chunks (Frozen), Kiwi, Blueberries and Blackberries.
We added a rainbow of colour to our pasta using cooked brocolli, peppers (yellow, red & green!) and red onion.
Homemade Rainbow Pizza
Our homemade rainbow pizza was a real hit with both the kids & the parents. It’s a really simple way to encourage children to eat more veggies as it looks fun and vibrant. I just bought pizza bases from the super market, topped it with tomato puree and grated cheese before adding halved plum tomatoes, red pepper, yellow pepper, brocolli & red onion. Just bake in the oven following the instructions on the pizza base packet.
I promised you a use for those outcut stars didn’t I? So here we are, star shaped sandwiches with a filling of your choice. We used dairylea cheese (Florence’s favourite) and ham.
Unicorn Horn Flumps
No rainbow party is complete without a touch of unicorn! Flumps make great unicorn horns.
All of our Rainbow Party Food was served upon white plates (mostly) sitting on layered coloured table cloths.
