Find the Best Party Ever at the End of This Rainbow
There is something magical about the creation of a rainbow. When the light hits a raindrop just right, all of the separate colors in sunlight that we cannot normally see split apart to create a stunning masterpiece. Its elusive, fleeting nature makes it a sight to behold. It is no wonder why people believe rainbows hold magical powers, but their beauty is magic enough! Whether they mark the location of a pot of gold or the flight path of an enchanted Pegasus, the wonder and amazement created by a rainbow are worth celebrating. Make your birthday bash as magical and enchanting as a brilliant rainbow bending across the sky.
