The Best Unicorn Party Ever!

Published: 13th July 2018

It’s time to throw the sparkles, rainbows and pastel colours around and plan your child’s best ever unicorn party. What’s not to love about a unicorn party? Let’s not forget a unicorn party was good enough for the likes of Kim Kardashian’s daughter North, who enjoyed a joint unicorn party with her first cousin, Courtney Kardashian’s daughter Penelope Disick….so maybe it’s time to throw the ultimate unicorn party for your child too! 
The unicorn party is the perfect theme that you can easily plan around your child’s age and interests. And whoever said unicorn parties are a ‘girl thing’ have clearly never been invited to a boys’ unicorn party, right?

Unicorn Invitations

When it comes to the invitations, it's easy enough to buy ready-made unicorn party invitations but, let’s face it, the preparation is half the fun! Your child will love being involved in the invitation making stage.
The best and easiest way to make your unicorn party invitations is to buy a bunch of unicorn stickers and put them on some pastel coloured paper – add some glitter and then pop the card into an envelope (with added glitter inside for a bonus surprise).

Unicorn themed food

You could also make cupcakes and decorate them all individually. 

If you want to follow the Kardashian’s unicorn party, consider what they had on their party table – two unicorn cakes, unicorn donuts, unicorn ice cream cone cake pops, unicorn rice bubble treats and unicorn horn pretzel sticks.

For treats, you could make unicorn cookies (the unicorn cookie-making station covers this!), unicorn doughnuts, or icy poles using moulds. And if you turn an ice cream cone upside down, you have an edible unicorn horn! You might like to add a few platters of colourful fresh fruit and veggie sticks so the other parents don’t get upset about all the OTT the sugary unicorn snacks!

Let’s start with the centre piece of the table: the unicorn birthday cake! You can choose whatever filling your child prefers and all you need to do is ice a tall, round cake in white icing, add some unicorn eyes and luscious eyelashes, create a mane with colourful icing. Then you can add some painted paper ears and a long candle or rolled-up paper can be for the horn.

The best unicorn decorations

As any unicorn fanatic will tell you, a proper unicorn party is all about the pastels; pink, pale blue, yellow and lilac, along with a spattering of white, gold and silver.
Most party shops sell a range of unicorn-themed party ware, from plates to party hats. You could also hang some fairy lights around the table or, if the party is outdoors, from the trees.

Hire a Unicorn

Believe it or not, you can actually hire real-life unicorns! A unicorn party isn't complete without the appearance of a unicorn, where the kids can groom, ride and even play dress-ups with some unicorns. We've curated the most beautiful unicorns across the country, so that you can make your little (or big!) ones dreams come true! Safety is always the first priority, so helmets are provided for all children and our experience providers are all required to have current public liability insurance - which you may be asked for if you're having your party at a park or venue. Whilst we all know that unicorns poop 'rainbows' the 'rainbows' are not left behind ;-)

Understanding that not everyone is able to have an actual unicorn at their party, there's always the option of a My Little Pony entertainer. Princess Celestia will come dressed as her unicorn character and entertain the kids with games, stories, face-paint and balloons. 

Unicorn party games

The perfect unicorn party will always be loaded with fun unicorn-themed activities to keep the kids entertained! Some of our favourite activities include:

  •     Unicorn cookie or cupcake decorating station
  •     Wand-making station
  •     Pin the horn on the unicorn
  •     Unicorn piñata - cheap ones available at K-Mart or try Etsy if you're looking for something more unique

Unicorns forever!
