After searching high and low5 stores to be exact – i found all things orange for the party… including orange decorations (balloons, banner, treat bags, etc.) and orange food & drinks.

    This is amazing! Would this be appropriate for a fall birthday? I know kites are more of a springtime idea, but I have an October baby, and wanted to use orange(i.e. pumpkins).
