Your daughter will remember that day for the rest of her life. It is such a cool idea. Ps. I love all your photography!! And your photobooth fridays!

I love it. And since I might not be able to convince one of my boys to have one, I am logging this inspiration for my own b-day. :) You did a great job, Mama.
The colours are just amazing. One day I think I'll have to ask you to arrange a party for me!
love the photography. love all the colors. such a fun party!!
Oh my gosh, at 24 I'd loooove to have that birthday party, I'd probably add champagne in there somewhere, but seriously, cutest most adorable party idea.
This is amazing! I love this so much.
Beautiful photos of what looks to be a wonderful party! Makes me excited for when my girl is that age! The cake is fabulous. I've promised my good friend that I would make this very cake for her this year - so cool to see that yours worked out! Love your blog.
You rock it every single time. I remain inspired & in awe.
what a great mom...and beautiful daughter. love the fingernail polish shot! too cool.
awww...happy bday Ava! My Ava has here 7th bday coming up and we're doing Pretty in Pink theme...love you pictures! Fun party!
gloriously fun and rainbowy! how lovely
This party is just beautiful and looks like it was so much fun! My oldest granddaughter will be 10 on her next birthday and has never been able to have a party. I'm going to show her this photo spread and see is she likes the idea. Hope y'all don't mind if we borrow it, if she does. ;)
wow. wish I could have been invited.
You know, I never would have thought you could out-do yourself, since I was always so jealous and in love with the Japanese birthday party you had for Ava a couple of years ago (which idea I definitely plan to steal at some point) — but I have to say, the Super Epic Rainbow Party is, well... EPIC. Another idea I'm gonna have to steal. Rock on.
Oh my god! So much f-UN!
it looks like the best. party. ever.
Andrea, I've been reading your blog now for about five years, close to the very beginning, although I've only maybe commented once or twice. I've never met you guys, but I remember so vividly when Ava turned 6, you did a particularly poignant post called "Poor Five" and sometime around there posted a lovely pic of Ava spinning in a field in a little pink outfit. When I went to Flickr and looked at your whole epic party set, I was struck by how all the girls at Ava's party are big girls now, it's in the way they slouch, it's their confident, candid mugging for the camera. I had a moment thinking wow, look at how she's grown up, and that made me think wow, five years of my own life passing so quick. You're simply a brilliant photographer, and seeing the evolution of your art reflected in your photos here these last years has been so lovely. I'm glad you're still blogging!
the party looks amazing. I already decided -and the girls agreed- one of them needs the rainbow cake for their birthday. :)
I bow down to you, my friend.Seriously!!! Will you adopt me?! ;-)xx
i am immensely jealous of this party and want my own rainbow party!
My 6 year old just had a rainbow party too and we made that epic cake as well! We were going to do the rainbow fingerpainting and twister, but I forgot all about it because I had overplanned it, as usual. I love all the details in yours!
Oooh, I love rainbow birthdays. That was the theme for my daughter's 3rd birthday and she often asks to repeat it again. We did the cake, too. http://pennycarnival.typepad.com/penny_carnival/2008/06/the-end-of-the.htmlIt's fun to see the ways the theme can work for older girls, too.
