Planning Your Magical Unicorn Birthday Party

Unicorn Headbands

You can’t have a unicorn birthday party without unicorn horns! Now, I would not consider myself a “crafty mom” but I was able to make these super simple unicorn headbands with ease. Not only did they turn out super adorable, but they were super inexpensive!

To go along with the headbands, I decided to make some magic wands. These were even easier than the headbands! They came out adorable, and the kids loved them.

No unicorn birthday party is complete without a unicorn pinata. I had a difficult time finding one at my local party shops, but was able to find one super cheap on Amazon. The kids had so much fun smashing this little guy to bits and running after flying candy.

The unicorn cupcakes were so much fun to make. They also ended up being a big hit with both the kids and the adults. They were super easy to make as well.

I am not a talented cake decorator, so I took a picture to our local Publix and had them make the cake for us. Since we had the cupcakes, we only wanted a small round cake. I was super impressed with what they did! My daughter kept saying that the unicorn looked “just like Onchao” (her favorite unicorn from the show Mia and Me on Netflix).

We wanted to do a cute table set up for the party. Luckily, we were able to find most of what we needed at the Dollar Tree! We loaded up on confetti, table cloths, and a gold table skirt that I found on Amazon. ย The My Little Pony table toppers were found at our local party store, and made an excellent addition.

I spread the unicorn horns out on the table, along with the wands so that the kids could take one as they pleased. ย We also did a second table which housed the giant container of pink lemonade accompanied by these adorable unicorn strawsย that we found at Target. The straws did not fit well into my mason jar, so I stuffed it full with tulle and it worked like a charm!

Lastly, we put out our cake! We have a really fun tiered cake stand that my father in law had made us for our wedding. This cake stand gets used for every single party we have. You can find really great cake stands on Amazon as well that are rather inexpensive.

Unicorn Birthday Success

Needless to say, our unicorn birthday party was a success! Kids were running around with horns and magic wands, and eating cupcakes that stained their faces blue! I had so much fun planning this party, but there is nothing better than the look of pure joy and excitement on your child’s face because she got exactly the awesome and magical party that she deserves.

      Thank you. It was fun to do, a little stressful too though. It was my first theme party for her so I didn’t know what to expect

    That is such a fun party theme for little girls. I betcha that my niece would absolutely love this.

    I just adore everything about this themed party! Unicorns are so trendy now (and cute) and I love the way you did the cupcakes, headbands and have a fab pinata! I wish I was invited to this event!

      Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ this was the first year I did a themed party for her, so I wasn’t sure how it would turn out

  3. Ashvin Nankoo says:

    These are really impressive ideas. I have a niece birthday day this Sunday and this will definitely make me the best uncle ever. It also looks affordable and easy to do. Thanks for sharing

  4. Kirsten says:

    This Unicorn party turned out so cute! I love the headbands so much, a gift that can be used for months to come rather than purchasing all the little toys that get thrown out. Loved the cake!

  5. Kim says:

    There is something special about unicorns for young girls. This is an adorable party for young kids and you did a great job.

  6. David Elliott says:

    Those unicorn cupcakes look awesome. I am sure my daughter would love that. Although this year she wants a Harry Potter party as she is turning 11. So that is fraught with it’s own difficulties.

  7. Erin Fesperman says:

    I absolutely LOVE the unicorn cupcakes! I think I might have to make them for my niece on her next bday! She loves all things cute and adorable! (She’s 4) lol

    I’ve never thrown a unicorn themed party but I think it’s an awesome theme! This is really fun, the details, the bursts of color! Everything’s just pure awesome.

    Ok so first of all, can we take a moment and talk about how adorable these unicorn cupcakes look?! I’m totally craving cupcakes and a cute headband now.
    I’d say this unicorn birthday party would be every little girls (and maybe boys) dream.
    Great post!
