PARTY DETAILS, as told by Heather

A gorgeous rainbow theme party for 2-year-old Dylan Grace. It was executed with a stylish, modern twist of including lots of white to offset all the rainbow colors. It was planned and styled by Dylan’s mom, Bethany.

About planning Dylan Grace’s party, Bethany says:

“We started working with Dylan on her colors shortly after she turned 1, and by 18 months she knew every color. Meanwhile, Mommy is obsessed with white. Obsessed. So, I brought all the colors of the rainbow together with lots of white. I love the classic and fresh look of white with the bright rainbow colors!”

“Also, to be quite honest… the party represented everything Dylan has been to us since the day she was born. (She is the first and only grandchild, so you can imagine just how adored she is.) She has brought our families so much joy and so much life. Cliche, but there is no one color to best describe her… she is every single one of them. ;)”


Bethany says, “I highly suggest the tie dye shirts activity! The shirts turned out amazing, with bright colors. I pre-soaked the shirts in soda ash the morning of the party, then had the shirts already wrapped with rubber bands and sealed in Ziploc baggies. All the kids had to do was apply the dye and then put their shirt back into bag. The bags were even pre-labeled with the children’s names, and had care instructions for the parents to follow at home.”

“The spin art was also way cool! I’d suggest having at least 2 spin art machines for parties with 15 kids or more. There was a constant line to use them, the kids loved them so much!”
