Unicorn Birthday Party – Our Best Party Ideas

A Unicorn Birthday Party for My Little Girl

For her sixth birthday my daughter wanted a unicorn birthday party. Not surprising as most little girls adore unicorns and rainbows.

And of course, this is a party idea every mom love to pursue … Who doesn’t believe in unicorn magic, right?Unicorn Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata

Unicorn Birthday Party Invitations

Unicorn Birthday Party Invitations with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinataLike any party, we started the party arrangements by printing invitations. I decided to keep it simple, and created a powerpoint slide with rainbow, unicorn, and balloons. Then, simply added all the what and when details.

We printed the invitations out and stuck the printed image on a beautiful cardstock. Inside an envelope, it went and ready for hand out. It doesn’t get any simpler than that!

We decorated a dreamy table with soft pink, blues and greens, and a unicorn re-usable tablecloth. My daughter chose these pretty unicorn plates and napkins.

Unicorn Birthday Party Outfit

No party is without dressing up and that’s why we made some rainbow unicorn horns for every guest!

We made a horn for each friend and they sure love wearing them. I added a bit more ribbon to the horn for our guest of honor!

Not up for sewing a tutu, I also love these personalized tutu and rainbow tutu skirts.

No princess outfit is however complete without a crown. So we added some sparkly beads to a felt crown and made sure she can wear it together with the unicorn horn.

Unicorn Birthday Party Cake

Baking the cake is always one of my favorite parts of arranging a party. I love working with fondant icing and creating this coach with a princess and a unicorn was lots of fun.

Unicorn Birthday Party Treats

We made little unicorn faces from marshmallows and it was a super treat. You can find a step by step tutorial on how to make similar unicorn treats from The decorated cookie.

I simply added a white marshmallow to a straw and used a food pen to create eyes. The horn, ears, and stars were made from fondant icing and stuck onto the marshmallow using a little sugar paste.

So easy and yet so cute! This is one of my favorite suppliers of soft, fresh fondant icing.

Unicorn Birthday Party Pinata

I made the first pinata 2 years ago, and since then it is the first thing my kids ask for when we plan their birthdays. Having a pinata not only adds to your party decorations but also creates another activity and allows the kids to play with the toys and take it home. Unicorn Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata We always fill the pinata not only with sweets but also with a lot of small toys as I am not a fan of having too many sweets around … Just make sure the toys you add won’t break when falling on the ground.

Unicorn Birthday Party Activities

Doing a fun activity is always a big part of our parties. Giving the kids a chance to create something to remind them of the awesome party they had.  For the unicorn birthday party, we decided to paint unicorn tote bags and make dream catchers.

I found these unicorn tote bags at a local store and the kids used acrylic paint to color them. You can easily buy or sew plain tote bags and trace unicorn pictures on them to create the same thing.

For the dream catcher, I cut the hoof shape from a paper plate, added a string at the top and punched holes at the bottom. The girls could then decorate their own with beads, crystals, ribbons, shapes, and feathers.

Unicorn Birthday Party Favors and Thank You Cards

The best part of any party is always leaving the kids with a little surprise to take home and remember the magic. Each little princess received a string bag, unicorn plush toy and a unicorn crayon. They sure loved it! Depending on your budget, you can make the party favors as big or small as you want.

Here are a couple of affordable options for a unicorn plush toy

Unicorn Birthday Party Games

We played a lot of unicorn party games including Pass a Parcel and Musical Statues. And, who doesn`t love the old – pin a tail – game? And the best part of having a unicorn party, the old time favorite becomes  – pin a rainbow horn! So much more magical!

I simply cut rainbow unicorn horn shapes, drew a unicorn on a large poster and gave it some color. We stuck it on the wall and the kids were blindfolded trying to pin the horn in the perfect position. Loads of fun!

Gifts for little Unicorn Lover

I had so much fun looking for the perfect gift for my daughter and would love to share some of the most beautiful unicorn things I found

The Result: A Happy Daughter

We created an awesome unicorn birthday party and made everything ourselves. Arranging and preparing all the different items do take time. But, it also makes it so much more special and memorable.

My best Birthday Party Tip

Ask a friend to take as many pictures as possible. You will be too busy running around and organizing things. And, your daughter will be too busy having fun to take everything in.

There are few things as precious as sharing the awesome moments afterward by looking at photos together. You will both get to relive the magic again and again!

I hope you found some inspiration for your next unicorn birthday party. Leave a comment and let me know your favorite unicorn idea. And, remember to pin and save for later!
