I remember as a young girl falling in love with unicorns and rainbows! I loved all of the pastel colors, and of course the glitter that was associated with them. That being said, when my younger daughter wanted to have a unicorn themed birthday party, I was ALL IN!!! My mind immediately started whirling with ideas for the decorations!
I started with table decor, and found these adorable plates, napkins, & center pieces at Party City. The gold square chargers have glitter specks and were a perfect addition.
I made “tails” out of streamers, and tied them to the backs of the chairs. Of course, the birthday girl got a larger “tail” that included a tulle bow.
Using the same color streamers, I added a little more color with streamers hanging from a beam in the party room.
I found some fun and unique “unicorn names” on Pinterest, so I printed them for the girls to declare their personal “unicorn name”.
I was SOOOOO excited when I found these ceramic unicorns at TJ Maxx. The pink one is a bank and the white one is a planter. They were a perfect addition.
At the party entrance, I created a cloud that appeared to be raining. I used white tissue paper and two iridescent doorway hanging decorations.
Another MUST for a fun party is a photo backdrop. I created this one with iridescent doorway hanging decorations, then added streamers. On top, I hung tissue paper flower balls, and the final touch was a sign that read “I believe in unicorns” that I purchased at Party City. I placed two balloon bouquets on the floor for added color. During the photo booth pictures, I dumped large trash bags full of blown up balloons on the girls. They had a blast playing with the balloons. This created MANY fun photo opportunities!
We played a few games: pin the horn on the unicorn, and a ring toss onto the horn of a unicorn.
A birthday party wouldn’t be complete without dessert! My daughter wanted an ice cream cake, so I make two unicorn ice cream cakes. I used a frosting and gold sugar covered ice cream cone as the horn and thin blonde Oreos that I cut into triangles for the ears.
When I created the invitations, I found glitter gold unicorn silhouettes online that I printed. I used the same silhouettes on the party favor gift tags and unicorn name lists. I included a fun quote that said, “In a world of horses, be a unicorn”.
I had just as much fun planning this party as the girls had attending it!
Happy birthday party planning!
“Wonder what I will come up with next”…
