A rainbow tea party is a special way for a women’s group to raise funds for a worthy cause. Christian women within the church environment usually organize these events. It gives the women an opportunity to come together to share both faith and food. The promise of the rainbow is that god will never again flood the world, if the people in the world again disobey his orders. These parties can have many types of food, as well as entertainment and live music performances.

The color of the rainbow is represented throughout the party. Tablecloths and streamers can be used to give the party some extra flair. Many women take a great deal of pride in being able to decorate their table in the most exciting way. Foods for that certain table are intended to be the color of the table. For example, a green table could have salad, lime Jell-O, and green tea, as food options. This forces the women to be creative with their meal choices.
