Rainbow Birthday

Today we had a birthday party in the park for my granddaughter, Natalie,  turning 4 ... she is so glad to no longer be 3 and over the last few weeks was actually embarrassed that she was only 3.   As always, the kids are asked what 'theme' they want for their birthday parties and this year she chose 'rainbow'... evidently studying rainbows in preschool!  Well, rainbow decorations aren't as readily available as princesses, ladybugs, Dora, etc., so I turned to my Cricut and my Hello Kitty cartridges and made her some cupcake toppers.
Birthday girl got a super tall cupcake topper with a sunshine on top.  
Looks like she can't wait to dig into that icing!

The kids all helped Natalie's mom make rainbow cupcakes! Cute!!

I made several balloon decorations, too, but the wind was so bad that the balloons were whipping all over the place in the park and, as I was afraid might happen, the balloon decorations were a little bit heavy and kept the balloons from floating upright.  A true test to the strength of  Zots 3D glue dots - I placed one glue dot on the wood pole and stuck the balloon to it and it held up through all the wind!  These were strong winds and these were strong glue dots!
