Prance your way into party planning perfection with a magical unicorn theme. Unicorns provide a shimmery, pastel color palette that is gorgeous for birthday parties. Create this visually stunning theme with balloons, decorations, favors, candy, and a themed table setting. Try these easy DIY tips that will make your party guests flip!
Unicorn Balloon Ideas
1. Unicorn Balloon Garland
The unicorn balloon garland is your statement piece. It sets the scene for the entire party with its size, texture, and color, and it makes an incredible photo backdrop. Your guests won’t be able to contain their excitement once they see this eye-popping party centerpiece.
Starting with balloon tape, use air-filled pastel and confetti-filled latex balloons in various sizes and unicorn colors to comprise the body. Attach crepe paper streamers, fans, and tassels to give the garland shine and added texture.
2. Unicorn Balloon Hoop
A unicorn balloon hoop is everything a unicorn balloon decoration should be: fanciful, charming, and versatile. You can use it as a table centerpiece, attach it to the wall as part of a photo backdrop, or, best of all, hang it up and let it gently spin in a whimsical unicorn kind of way. The balloon hoop makes the perfect frame for an enchanting unicorn balloon, and it gives you plenty of space to add your own creative touch.
You can get a pre-assembled unicorn balloon hoop kit or buy the hoop and balloons separately. Either option allows you to add your own enhancements. Floral garlands, ribbon, and colorful feathers all make beautiful additions to your balloon hoop.
3. Unicorn Balloon Table Runner
If you want to create a fabulous tablescape that transports guests to a magical land of unicorns, then a unicorn balloon table runner is the way to go. It adds incredible texture and color to your tablescape and, depending on how many balloons you use, leaves room for cakes, candles, and other settings.
Start by assembling your table runner base, then add air-filled latex balloons in unicorn colors; pastel blues, pinks, and purples work especially well. Add balloons based on how full you want the runner to be and whether you want the balloons to run down the ends of the table. Beyond the balloons, there are so many creative ways to enhance your table runner, especially streamers, flowers, table scatter, and glitter.
Unicorn Party Decorations
5. Set a Fairy-Tale Table
Create a magical tablescape with plates in your child’s favorite unicorn design and solid-colored napkins, cutlery, and cups to match. Set it all upon a blank table cover to allow your place settings pop, and bonus points because it’ll make post-party clean-up a breeze. Finish the look with a pastel balloon table runner down the center to give your décor a pop of color and a fun texture.
6. All Things Iridescent
Make sure your treats look as good as they taste with an iridescent treat table. A shimmering color scheme creates an air of fantasy and the treats are a sweet delight. Mix and match iridescent decorations, plates, cups, napkins, cutlery, and of course balloons to bring your treat table to life!
Unicorn Party Food Ideas
7. Unicorn Candy Buffet
What's as sweet and upbeat as a unicorn? Candy, of course! A candy buffet in bright colors is a natural fit for your unicorn themed party table. Pretty in pink, a candy buffet doubles as a party decoration and a tasty treat. Choose your candy by color, then add a few containers for displaying the candy. Guests can serve themselves, making this easy to set up and visually stunning party snack a no-brainer.
8. Go Wild With Unicorn Cakes
What's better than a breathtaking table centerpiece? A stunning centerpiece that tastes as amazing as it looks! Get a custom unicorn cake that’s covered in pastel colors and topped with “unicorn poop” meringues or even sprinkle-filled cupcakes with rainbow swirl frosting. Either of those (or both) on a treat stand makes an easy centerpiece that’s sure to please.
Unicorn Party Favors
