DIY cloud rainbow wands for a party

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone! I am over the rainbow excited to share this fantastic St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Party with you today. Not only did Shawna Brockmeier – party stylist extraordinaire – create all of the fun details you see at this adorable party (hosted for her daughter & friends), but she also used some very familiar looking paper details as well… we customized our Retro Rainbow collection from Hostess with the Mostess to work for her party theme!

Filled with lots of super cute DIYs and creative rainbow-themed treats, this colorful party will bring you a pot of golden ideas for any rainbow themed party you might be hosting too… now isn’t that LUCKY. ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Awesome rainbow tissue fringe streamers & DIY felt clouds dessert table backdrop
  • Homemade felt rainbow crowns (LOVE!) + cute rainbow and felt cloud wands
  • Rainbow cake pops + cloud label topped cupcakes cleverly displayed in decorative wraps
  • Pom-topped rainbow striped party hats, pom garland chair backs + rainbow pom decorated chandelier
  • Giant rainbow confetti balloons, a balloon filled pool + rainbow bead necklace making activity

PARTY DETAILS as told by Shawna

I was so excited to collaborate with HWTM on this party! I throw many holiday parties and decided to do a rainbow party in the spirit of St. Patricks day for my daughter and her friends. I chose to use the Retro Rainbow printables — it was such a treat when they arrived, gorgeous and ready to go! Having the “printables” already printed and precut allowed me a lot of extra time to craft decor for the party!


I was inspired by Shop Sweet LuLu when I spotted a rainbow backdrop on their site using tissue fringe. I decided to hang the fringe in front of a window to allow natural light to shine through like a rainbow. I made felt stuffed clouds that I hung with fishing line. We had a lot of colorful balloons including the fun large confetti balloons from Shop Sweet LuLu!

I created colorful yarn pom poms for a garland to hang from the back of the chairs along with the Retro Rainbow decorative wraps. I also used pom poms on top of party hats and on the table’s chandelier centerpiece.

I was lucky to find fabric that coordinated with the Retro Rainbow printables that I used on the dessert table and created rainbow party crowns for the girls.

I was able to customize a sign that read ‘Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly’ and I added little blue birds throughout the party! I loved the die cut clouds and used them on gold sticks so that it looked liked shimmering gold under the rainbow. I also used the die cut clouds in the cupcakes and hanging from the table’s chandelier!

Dessert Table

We had a lot of rainbow colored desserts in front of the tissue fringe backdrop including gorgeous rainbow cake pops, rainbow candy Kabobs, rainbow sugar cookies, and cupcakes and candy with Retro Rainbow custom tent cards in front of them.


The girls made rainbow bead necklaces, played with rainbow ribbon dancers and played dress up with the crowns, candy necklaces and colorful rainbow hair pieces that they braided.

It was a fun filled beautiful and colorful day!
