Thanks to Pinterest I had a lot of ideas to pull from. Here are my Pinterest boards if you're interested:

And here is the party!
Taste the Rainbow: Rainbow Goldfish, gumballs, candies, Skittles, and Apricots off my Dad's tree
The spread - a Rainbow of Fruit tray and a Rainbow of Veggies tray with Today I Ate a Rainbow passports for the kids!
Rainbow Over the Ranch Dip
Marshmallow Clouds Dip (cream cheese and marshmallow creme...mmmm!) and Pots of Gold
We set up the easel that Mandy and I used as kids. It was quite windy out but the kids didn't seem to mind. Kaylee loves to paint!
Is anyone else impressed that people ate more of the veggies than the fruit? My friend Annika baked the cupcakes and helped me decorate them (well, I just sprinkled the rainbow candies she did the rest). I didn't get a picture of the entire table set up uneaten though! :(
Kaylee blew out her #3 candle like a pro!
Then proceeded to walk from person to person offering her cupcake until she decide that Aunt Joy was the perfect person to give it to.
And then our crazy child chose to eat purple cauliflower instead of a cupcake...
She had a blast opening presents! Her family and friends know her well!
Thanks to Grandpa for hosting the party! And to Michele for helping me prep all the food and decorations!
And most of all, thank you to John. Thank you for helping me throw Kaylee such a fun party but even more so helping me raise her to be the awesome 3 year old that she is. :) We love you!
