I enjoy having parties at home, but last year I didn't want to deal with the mess so I shelled out for the children's museum.
My daughter had a Colors-themed party for her 2nd birthday a couple of years ago. It was super easy and cheap. I got white paper everything and put out markers with the utensils so people could mark their cups and color on their plates, et cetera. I used white receipt tape (my job ordered the wrong type and gave it to me) in place of streamers and decorated with chalk outside and primary-colored balloons. To eat we had different colors of kool-aid, rainbow goldfish, rainbow jell-o, and a crayon cake I made myself.
