Rainbow Classroom Party

I am the “Party Mom” for my daughter’s classroom. I basically come up with Party ideas and then implement them… well today we are having a Rainbow Party!!

On the trays are a variety of fruits like Watermelon, Grapes, Strawberries, Honeydew, Cantaloupe, Pineapple, Bananas, Mangoes and then a nice selection of veggies like Carrots, Celery, Green Bell Peppers, Broccoli, Cherry Tomatoes,  Olives.

Hope it is colorful like the rainbow and the kids enjoy the treat!!!
