The Littlest Funk blog: A Magical Unicorn Birthday Party

A Magical Unicorn Birthday Party

My neighbor owns a small shop and makes the most adorable headbands.  When she started making unicorn headbands, I knew Emma had to have one and I instantly knew what kind of birthday party we would be throwing her this year.  She turned 3 on the 3rd, which is technically her "golden birthday", but a magical birthday is, in my opinion, even better!

I had the best time planning this party for Em.  I loved that she was able to help pick out things that she wanted for her party too.  This is going to be such a fun age!  A unicorn party is something you could easily do yourself.  As long as there is a lot of glitter and a lot of color, you can't go wrong.

Dessert Table 

I think I was more excited about cutting into Emma's cake than anything else.  I actually made her cake myself this year and filled it with sprinkles!!   You can click here to see how I made her cake. Of course, I forgot to take a photo of the entire table.  We had it set up on a cream colored vintage dresser and it was adorable.  I kept the dessert table simple and sparkly.  I loved the way it turned out.



Food Table

I tried to stick with our unicorn theme for food too.  We had rainbow salsa,  fruit kabobs, rainbow pasta salad and veggies.  I had planned on making the veggie dip rainbow colored, but ran out of time.  The unicorn horns (hot dogs on a stick) were a huge hit!  The kids and the adults loved them.  There are so many things that you can do with this, that you can't go wrong.  Pinterest is amazing.


Drink Table

I found this recipe for "unicorn punch" that had orange sherbet, blue punch and cotton candy ice cream.  It was supposed to be colorful and fun, but just ended up looking like a mess.  The kids were even afraid to try it!  One was finally brave enough and said it was really good.  I don't think anyone believed him.  Haha!  Here is the recipe, if YOU are feeling brave.  I found the heart cups during Valentine's Day and the pink cups from the Target dollar section.  Actually most of this set up is from the Target dollar section!



Fun and Games
 
We had a unicorn pinata at the party  and this is what was left of it.  Charlotte was obsessed with it.  She seriously carried the head around for the rest of the party.  We also had cascarones (confetti eggs), which was a lot of fun because no one had ever heard of them.  We are still picking up confetti!  I set up a Unicorn Horn decorating station with ice cream cones, icing and sprinkles. It was really messy, but kids had a blast.  We also set up our bounce house and let the kids just run around and play.  I did have this adorable rainbow backdrop set up for a photo booth, but the wind had different plans and I couldn't get it to stay up.
