Catch on to this summer’s latest bright and bubbly trend — tie dye! With sunshine and vivid colors, Paper Source has everything you need to throw a colorful celebration in five easy steps.


1. A Welcoming Invite

Match your invites on-theme with Paper Source’s Custom Invitations! The Colored Confetti Party Invitations can bring the same brightness right to your guests before the party’s even started.

Invite kids and parents for a perfect birthday party setup — tie-dye is for everyone!

2. Celebrate in Color

Decoration is key! Setting the theme helps create cohesion and fun throughout the entire celebration. Start off with a great Tie Dye Letter Banner to decorate any outdoor patio or room — spell out “TIE-DYE FOR!” in bright block letters. 

Then, make a statement with a Rainbow Balloon Arch Kit: a perfect for photo opportunities for all guests! The booth can be decorated with more garlands wall decorations, like the spunky Tassel String Lights or Felt Pom Garland, and even the Rainbow Honeycombs! Even creating your own special decor with a DIY decor tutorial can make for a great pre-party activity  

Fun props will make all the photos pop, like our Yay Party Hats, Rainbow Sunglasses, and a Rainbow Confetti Popper! Even wearing your own tie-dyed t-shirts makes a great photo memory.

3. Special Service

At the table, Use Paper Source’s Tie Dye Napkins and Plates for guests to match! In-theme party favors are also guaranteed to be a hit, with Sour Rainbows, Baby Butterflies, Pebbles Live Happy Stickers and even Rainbow Masks to be packaged in Watercolor Rainbow Dot Bags or even Candy Sprinkles Cellophane Bags. Place these alongside the tie-dye plates, cupcakes and candles for a burst of color! 

With an easy cupcake swirl recipe, add a colorful flair and top each cupcake with a Rainbow Candle for cohesion and a fun pop of color. 

4. Learn to Craft

Spring into action during the celebration with our Vivid Tie Dye Kit and craft fun pieces with this activity and tie dye anything cloth and make your own new product! A great craft that can inspire any guest at your celebration, tie dying your own piece creates a personal, unique and bright twist that aligns right with a timeless summer trend.  

The Rainbow Craft Kit, the So Many Friendship Bracelet Kit and the Over the Rainbow Craft Kit all provide additional activities with a little less mess and just as much color! Kids can draw in all the colors with Jumbo Sidewalk Chalk, or explore  the remainder of the party space with the Backyard Explorer Craft Kit!

5. A Memory to Take Away

In addition to party favors, print the pictures from the day for great memos and fold them into specially-written thank you notes on the  Tie Dye Stationary Set.! A perfect reminder of all the amazing fun that was had. Commemorate with this simple tutorial on how to make a scrapbook of all the photos used!
