10 reasons your child needs a unicorn party (and how to do it!)

Posted in Birthday.

Childhood parties are the stuff that dreams are made of. Unicorn parties take those dreams to a whole other level, inspiring magical, sparkly, super-pretty fun. If you’re not quite sure how to unicorn, here’s a few gorgeous places to start.

1. Because unicorn cakes are a life goal

Unicorn cakes are popping up all over Instagram and it’s not hard to see why. Their sleepy faces and pretty manes are a total delight.

2. To whack a unicorn pinata, of course

We love this gorgeous piñata. It seems a terrible shame to hit it with a stick! Make your own or buy a pre-made one for jam-packed unicorn fun.

3. Because giant unicorn balloons make great pals

This sparkly foil balloon will make a giant impact AND be a special twinkly friend to your favourite birthday child.

4. To eat their weight in unicorn cookies

These sleepy unicorn cookies by Frosted By Nicci are irresistible. We think these should be an ‘all times treat’ because … pastel polka-dots!


5. So they can DIY a unicorn balloon

These guys come with sparkly unicorn horns, stickers, streamers and all the other bits and bobs a clever kid needs to make their very own magical pal. You can grab a four unicorn kit from Hip and Hooray.


6. Or wear a unicorn headband, even!

Every unicorn needs a sparkly horn and this one comes with extra pastel bling AND unicorn ears. Snap one up at Graciosa on Etsy.


7. So they can take part in unicorn snacking

Has there ever been a more unicorn-y party plate? We think not. These beauties are from The Party Cupboard and we need some in our lives. #IBelieve


8. To fancy up a unicorn cupcake or three

Of course you need unicorn cupcakes at your … we mean your CHILD’S party. This fancy and sparkly kit will get you sorted. Snaffle yours at The Party Cupboard.


9. To invite people, unicorn-style

Invite your guests in personalised unicorn-y style with these ace invitations by the good folk at Design My Party.


10. To bestow unicorn party bags!

Of course you need some tiny unicorns to go in your unicorn party bags. These ones are from eBay and almost certainly have magical powers.
