Come springtime, we can expect “April showers (that) bring May flowers.” So for a birthday within those drizzly months till June, there’s nothing like a Rainbow-themed Birthday Party to brighten up the occasion—from multi-colored decorations to the cheeriest party props all the way to goodies and sweets in the brightest colors.

And those rainbow-hued party treats are what we’re showcasing here. Ideas for a DIY party menu of desserts to drinks, all so easy to source and serve. Plus a special selection of fruit-based treats for less sugar, but just as much color!

Rainbow Frosted Cupcakes

Colorful cupcakes in green, yellow, orange, red, and blue.

In place of a birthday cake, a display of cupcakes frosted in each color of the rainbow makes quite a stunning sight! Plus they are so handy to serve at the party, or send home as party favors.

Multi-colored Whirly Pops

Rainbow treats all ready to buy. That’s what you can look out for in candy stores and pastry shops. A perfect example are these whirly pops in assorted bright colors. All you need to add are ribbon ties and containers, like bottles, tins, or baskets, to display them in.

Fresh Fruit Kebabs

DIY Rainbow Treats and Desserts

A healthier option would be party treats made with fresh fruits that mimic the colors of a rainbow. Super easy and eye-catching, too, are these fruit kebabs made with grapes, blueberries, kiwi, pineapple, cantaloupe, and strawberries.

Rainbow Bottle Labels

Whether you’ll be serving milk, juice, or water as party beverages, keep the bottles in theme, too! DIY your own custom bottle labels—sporting a rainbow design and a playful font. Or search for downloadable printables online.

Party Drinks in Rainbow Colors

Rainbow beverages for a party

A party drinks station that’s part of the decor? Definitely! Set up beverage dispensers all in a row, each filled with a colored drink—like regular lemonade, blue raspberry lemonade, orange juice, grapefruit juice, and grape juice. Or assorted choices of fruit-infused water.

Rainbow Treats Made with Fruits

We just had to add this section of more rainbow treats ideas. Not only because they offer up a fruity alternative, but because they are just so party-pretty!

Each one comes with a recipe. So you can make these goodies yourself.

Rainbow fruit desserts and treats

1 – Rainbow Fruit Tray (from The Joys of Boys) – Fresh fruit pieces arranged to form the bands of a rainbow, with a “cloud” of mini marshmallows, and a pile of chocolates as a “pot of gold” (since this is actually for St. Patrick’s Day).

2 – Chinese Bakery Birthday Cake (from Thirsty for Tea) – A light and airy sponge cake base, frosted with whipped cream, and topped and/or filled with pieces of fresh fruit—in this case, in rainbow colors.

3 – “Rainbow Ice Cubes” Fruit Sorbet (from The Flavor Blender) – Each made from just 3 ingredients in raspberry, peach, pineapple, and honeydew melon flavors—with many more options suggested. Easy, healthy, and so refreshing!

4 – “Rainbow Fruit Go-Gurt” Parfaits (from Pillsbury) – How adorable are these mini glasses filled with a colorful assortment of fresh fruits—the brighter and more varied, the better—plus yogurt and cereal!

5 – Easy Rainbow Sherbet (from Kraft Canada) – No need for an ice cream churn to make this oh-so-appealing frozen treat in a rainbow of colors and flavors.

6 – Rainbow Gelatin (from Kiwilimon) – Love the retro vibe of this striking dessert, made by layering different colors and flavors of gelatin with condensed milk between each layer. Sweet!

We bet you were smiling throughout this post! And smacking your lips over these rainbow-themed party treats. Ready to make your own?
