If you are needing Rainbow Tea Party ideas, let's start with What is a Rainbow Tea Party? It is a Christian oriented gathering usually held by members of a church. The room is decorated with tables themed in each color of the rainbow. The individual colors have Biblical significance. The tables are displayed with food, decorations or even crafts that are all in the specific color. Many times Rainbow Teas are organized as a fundraiser for the church.
A captain is usually assigned a specific color and it is her responsibility to work with her team to create an inviting table in that color. Sometimes awards are given out to the best table. They can also be family type gatherings with crafts, games and entertainment going on. Everything on each table needs to be in the themed color of the table, including the food. If it is a fundraiser, participants can buy a seat at a certain table and eat there or purchase food items from various tables. Each table usually has a unique centerpiece in the color also. These gatherings are fun-filled events that are usually highly attended.
