Rainbow Birthday PartyWe celebrated Ella’s 10th Birthday this Summer with a Rainbow theme in the charming gardens of Stoney’s Gifts. We invited 8 of Ella’s friends, and they had a giggling good time while hanging out with the delightful Ms. Cindy (the party planner). Ms. Cindy planned a craft for the girls (sand art) and painted faces as well as set everything up and cleaned up as well. Stoney, the owner of the shop made iced tea, lemonade and fruit kabobs for the girls. The price was quite reasonable, and I really did not have to do much to prepare at all! Basically, I could have just shown up with Ella and my camera, but I have to go slightly overboard at parties…so I showed up with decorations, goodie bags and rainbow-themed treats. Together, we created the perfect Rainbow Birthday Party in the Gardens at Stoney’s Gifts. If you don’t live near Stoney’s, I think this party could be done in your very own backyard! Remember to make everything look presentable for your guests though and ensure the garden and the exterior of the house are looking at their best for your party. If the party’s going to be smack in the middle of summer when the heat can be unbearable, think about getting some canvas shade cloth to serve as a canopy. A company like ICL SA could help you with the fabric as well as the set-up. It could help shade your backyard from the sunlight, partially or fully depending on how you want it. This might be only one of the many things you’ll have to consider to make sure that your guests have a great time and are kept comfortable. Apart from setting up for the actual party, of course, you can think about some things you may want to take care of around the house, too. Even doing something as simple as getting in contact with a gutter cleaner like those at Clean Pro Gutter Cleaning Springfield area will make the biggest difference to the look of your home, this way you’ll be able to add some more plants around your home too which makes it looks even prettier for the big day! There are plenty of touch-ups you can do to prepare it for the big day, but if you are in the NKY/Cincy area, Stoney’s garden truly is magical and you can do it there instead!
