It was a very big day around here a couple of weekends ago.
Our son was Baptized.
And then we hosted a dinner for our family (on both sides) at our house.
We had about 45 guests.
Like I said it was a very big day!
So how do you decorate when you're hosting a party and the guest of honor is a boy but you still want it to be fun and not just blue plus inexpensive and easy but fabulous and did I mention for a boy?
Call a friend.....
Get a great suggestion and then let the good times roll!
I called my friend Shonda (amazing photographer, creative genius) who said she'd seen a cute rainbow party on a blog somewhere....
Then she reminded me of this song the kids sing at church.
So I used the words from the song and made these two printables.
I decorated with balloons and crepe paper in rainbow colors.
Each table was covered with a tablecloth one color in the rainbow.
The smaller printable was in the center of the table with pictures of our boy around it.
My daughter helped me make these fabulous cupcakes, (recipe here)

Which we proudly displayed on a cupcake stand with one of the small printables I made on top.
My boy loved it.
I loved it.
and guess who didn't get a single picture!
Yep, to busy with everything else and forgot the pictures.
This way you can imagine it as amazing and colorful as you want and I'll just say, "you bet, that's exactly what it looked like!"
