Rainbow Kitty Party
My daughter loves cats, rainbows and all things sparkly. So when it came time to plan her 5th birthday party, I knew having a rainbow kitty themed party would be perfect! Charley told me that she wanted to incorporate lots of rainbow colors and balloons. Planning birthday parties for 5 year old girls is so fun, right?! They are still at the age where they love fun themes, but also appreciate pretty details as well.
I set out planning this rainbow kitty party with a color palette of soft pastels in mind. I also added in fun glitter and iridescent sparkles as well! The whole feel of the party had a prismatic effect to it!

This iridescent “curtain” was a fun way for guests to walk into the party. The girls loved running through it!
Rainbow Kitty Party Invitations
I found these cute invitations on Etsy. I love how they incorporate the pastel color theme and were so easy to order! The play on words is cute and fun for the parents to see. I was able to choose the colors that I wanted for the image so it was so easy to design according to your party theme! If you are looking for the invitation, just search “kitty party” on etsy for a ton of super cute options!
Rainbow Kitty Party Decorations
I wanted to create a centerpiece for the party. So I took advantage of our giant shiplap wall and used that as a backdrop for this fun design. I used these colorful fans and the gold “MEOW” letter balloons to add color to the room. The perfect addition for this cat birthday party!
The fun candy display adds visual interest to the mantel. And the girls loved trying to sneak up there and get a handful, lol! Different sized apothecary jars filled with bulk candy is an easy way to add color to the room.
I used command strips and double sided tape to attach the fans to the wall and the balloons to the mantelpiece.
A colorful birthday table
I made a balloon centerpiece for the birthday table using various sized balloons and taping them to a strip of cardboard. What an easy and fun way to decorate the table, don’t you think? You can also buy kits that make these balloon arrangements.
For the kids table I found this iridescent tablecloth on Etsy that was the perfect backdrop to all the pastel rainbow balloons and decor.
My clear acrylic ghost chairs added to the airy feel of the party. And I borrowed my hot pink chair from my office for the guest of honor!
I used a mix of pastel rainbow plates and cups. And each girl got her own set of kitten ears! I think that was one of their favorite parts. It was so cute watching all those little girls running around with kitty ears on! The perfect accessory for this Rainbow Kitty Party!
I also tied a balloon to each chair. The girls loved being able to take the balloon home with them at the end of the party too!
Rainbow Kitty Party Cake
I found a local bakery, Pretty Please Bakeshop to create this amazing cake for her party. Not only is this the cutest cat cake I’ve ever seen, it tasted delicious too! They were amazing and incorporated the pastel rainbow theme into the frosting. So cute!
There are also several tutorial on how to make a cat cake that would be equally as fun and cute! I love this one from Food Network!
Cat Birthday Party Activities
Adopt a Kitten Activity
I created an Adopt a Kitty station for the girls to have something to do and also to have something to take home with them!
Here is what you will need to create an adopt a cat activity for your birthday party:
- Beanie Boos or other cat stuffed animals
- Thin ribbon (1/2″ wide)
- Rhinstone charms
- “Cat carriers” aka gabled boxes
- Adopt-A-Kitty Printable Sign
- Adopt-A-Kitty Certificate
For the cat collar, simply cut the ribbon to the length that will fit around the neck, attach velcro to both ends and sew on a rhinestone bead or charm.
When the guests arrive, invite them to visit the Adopt a Cat station. Have them pick out a pet and help them fill out their certificate and name their new kitten! Then, place the cat in their cat carrier along with the adoption certificate.
The girls had so much fun adopting their new kittens and playing with each other.
They loved all the colors and kept comparing their favorites with each other.
What a fun way to celebrate turning 5, right?!
