Unicorn party invitations and dress-up
So you’ve set the date and sent out the invites. Check out these Paperless Post invites – eco-friendly and totally on theme if you haven’t quite got there yet! It’s time to move onto the next step. Whether your party is for a birthday or another celebration, the first step to being Unicorn-ready is deciding on your Unicorn partyware and dress-up. Here’s our favorite dress-up kit.
The best way to make your party pop is to choose an iridescent color theme. Think pale pink, purple, and blue pastels topped with a hint of sparkle, aka Unicorn dust!
From paper plates, cups, and straws, to napkins, party hats, and goodie bags, there are so many ways that you can transform your venue into a magical glade.
Tip: If you're feeling crafty, you could also make Unicorn horns for your guests or, even better, use this as an activity at the party. Just make sure the card is pre-cut and ready to stick, because little people + lots of sugar + scissors = party mayhem!
Now that you've chosen your mystical partyware, it's time to choose your decorations to really make this party sparkle and shine. To create the perfect wonderland, you’ll need everything from fairy lights and garlands to specially crafted balloons, like this beautiful Unicorn Balloon Kit.
This kit is the perfect addition to any themed party and will add a spellbinding sprinkle to your home. With a choice of colors, balloon stickers, paper fringes, and horns, you can have plenty of fun with your kids while creating these special, inflatable sidekicks.
Tip: Try hanging glittering pink and gold streamers or Unicorn garlands from your ceiling, banister, and even your doorframe for the perfect entrance to a mystical and magical land ahead.
And for the final touch of dazzle, how about a fabulous Unicorn Piñata? It’s so pretty that you won’t want to see little hands break it open.
Unicorn cake ideas
And now it’s onto the main event… the food. And what else but a Unicorn-themed cake? Laid out right in the center of your buffet table, this scrumptious cake will provide your guests with magical powers. And the best thing? It’s super easy to create!
- All you need to do is cover your own homemade (or store bought) cake with some tasty vanilla frosting. You can add a drop of red or blue food coloring for that pastel effect.
- Make sure no corner of the cake is left unturned, and then draw on some fluttering Unicorn eyelashes with some black writing icing.
- Pipe some pink or purple icing around the bottom edge to create a pretty necklace
- Add a generous dose of edible glitter and sprinkles all around
- Pop a Unicorn horn on top
- And voila! Glittering cake creation complete.
But what should surround this special creature? How about some rainbow sprinkle cupcakes? Add a mix of brightly colored sprinkles (what else, but a Unicorns favorite food?) to your cake batter. Once they’ve cooled after baking, finish them off with some pastel vanilla frosting, Unicorn cupcake toppers, and dot them around your centerpiece.
Tip: Add some other sweet treats, from rainbow cookies, colorful candy and even edible glitter-coated strawberries. Now that's a job well done.Fun party games for kids
It’s time to burn off all of that magical party food with some fun party games!
Here are some top-notch suggestions for your party goers:
Pin the horn on the little Unicorn!
Yes, it's time to take out those horns again, because you're going to transform this well-known game of “pin the tail on the donkey” into a live event!
Instead of getting your eager participants to pin the horn onto a picture, you'll pinpoint a real-life Unicorn in the form of one of your guests and ask them to secure one of these glittering hornhats onto their heads - with the help of some adult hands, of course.
Ring toss game
Keep the Unicron horns handy for this fun take on the traditional ring toss game.
One player wears the hornhat by placing it on their head with the elasticated strap, and the others toss the ring to try and get it onto the horn. This is pure, simple fun that will really keep your little ones entertained.
Oh, and remember that Unicorn Piñata from earlier? Now’s the time to bring it down and try to break it open! Delight in the fun that comes from your little Unicorns trying to get the delicious treats inside.
Tip: When it comes to wishing your guests a magical goodbye, offer them some fab little take-home gifts. From Unicorn stickers and stunning Unicorn hair slides to Unicorn iron-on patches and temporary kids tattoos, there's no better way to send them on their way than with all of these goodies tied up in a Rainbow Unicorn Party Bag.
