Planning a Unicorn Party

Good planning is the key to a successful party. Decide on your guest list, date, and venue, then start thinking about how to fill your party space with enchantment. Sparkles, pastels, and iridescence should be at the heart of your decoration strategy. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Unicorn Invitations and Decorations

Set the tone with invitations that are as magical as the party itself. Think shimmering card stock, glitter accents, and adorable fonts. For decorations, drape your space in a rainbow of pastel streamers and balloons. Don’t forget a unicorn banner to welcome your enchanted guests at the door. You can even add some sparkle to your table with a sequined tablecloth or shimmering confetti.

Magical Unicorn Party Games and Activities

To keep the enchantment alive and the little ones entertained, consider these unicorn-themed games for your party agenda:

  • Unicorn Relay Race: Equip each team with a unicorn horn headband. Participants must race to a finish line and back, balancing the horn on their heads without using hands.
  • Magical Mane Event: Set up a hair styling station where kids can get their hair done with colorful hair chalk, glitter, and unicorn hair clips.
  • Unicorn Ring Toss: Create or purchase a unicorn ring toss game. Aim to land rings around the unicorn’s horn for points.
  • Find the Unicorn’s Tail: Hide several ‘unicorn tails’ — made from tulle and ribbons — around the party area. Have the kids go on a quest to find and collect them.
  • Freeze Dance with a Twist: Play some upbeat music and have the children dance. When the music stops, they must freeze in place. Add a unicorn twist by only playing songs related to magic or unicorns.
  • Pass the Magic Parcel: Wrap a box in shiny paper and fill it with small toys and trinkets. As music plays, kids pass the parcel around. When the music stops, the holder opens a layer of wrapping. Continue until the box is fully unwrapped.
  • Pin the Horn on the Unicorn: A classic party game with a magical twist. Blindfolded participants must try to pin the horn on the unicorn while being spun around.
  • Decorate Your Own Unicorn Cupcakes: Have a cupcake decorating station where kids can use frosting, sprinkles, and other toppings to create their own edible unicorns.
  • Unicorn Treasure Hunt: Hide small trinkets or treats around the party area for kids to find. Give them a list of items or let them solve clues to find the treasures.
  • Unicorn Limbo: Set up a limbo stick and have kids take turns trying to go under using their best unicorn-inspired moves.
  • Magical Photo Booth: No party is complete without photos to capture all the fun memories! Set up a photo booth area with props like unicorn headbands, rainbow glasses, and glittery signs.
  • Sparkle Station: Set up a station where kids can make their own unicorn-themed glitter art using glue, glitter, and paper.
  • Dress Up as a Unicorn: Encourage kids to come dressed up in their best unicorn attire! Provide accessories like headbands, tutus, and wings for those who need a little extra sparkle.
  • Rainbow Punch: Serve up a colorful and refreshing punch with different colored fruit juices. Add rainbow-colored candy straws for an extra touch of magic.
  • Unicorn Bingo: Put a unicorn twist on the classic game of bingo by using unicorn-themed cards and markers. You can even create your own bingo cards with pictures of unicorns and rainbow colors.
  • Unicorn Face Painting Ideas: Hire a face painter to bring your guests’ unicorn dreams to life! If hiring a professional isn’t in the budget, provide face paint and a mirror so guests can create their own magical designs.
  • Set up a Unicorn coloring station: Print some printable coloring pages or blank sheets where guests can let their creativity run wild. Don’t forget to provide plenty of crayons, markers, and glitter glue.
  • Unicorn Piñata: Fill a piñata with treats and let the kids take turns trying to break it open. For an extra surprise, fill it with mini unicorn toys or candy shaped like unicorns.

Unicorn Birthday Cake Ideas

The birthday cake is often the centerpiece of the party, so make it stand out. A multi-tiered cake in pastel Ombre shades topped with a golden horn and fondant ears will have everyone reaching for their cameras! Or opt for a simpler approach with a single-layer cake decorated with rainbow sprinkles and a unicorn figurine on top.

For something more interactive, consider having a DIY unicorn cake station. Pre-bake different flavored cupcakes or mini cakes and let the kids decorate them with frosting, candy, and edible glitter to create their own unique unicorns.

If you prefer not to bake, you can also order a custom unicorn cake from a bakery or even use a store-bought cake as a base and add your own decorations. Just make sure to have plenty of colorful frosting, sprinkles, and candies on hand for decorating.

Unicorn Party Food Ideas

Transform regular party foods into mystical treats. Cut sandwiches with a unicorn-shaped cookie cutter, or serve rainbow fruit skewers.

  • Set up a unicorn dessert table with sweets like cupcakes decorated with colorful frosting, rainbow-colored candy, and unicorn horn-shaped cookies. Don’t forget to add some edible glitter for that extra touch of magic.
  • Create a DIY unicorn hot cocoa bar with various toppings such as whipped cream, sprinkles, and marshmallows. You can also serve unicorn-inspired drinks like cotton candy soda or sparkling lemonade with edible glitter.
  • Sweet treats are a must-have at any party. Try cupcakes with swirling pastel frosting, adorned with a unicorn-themed topper, or make a batch of ‘unicorn horn’ ice cream cones by rolling sugar cones in melted white chocolate and covering them with pastel sprinkles.
  • Offer unicorn horn-shaped pretzel sticks, veggies arranged in a rainbow palette, or magical fruit dip dyed with natural food coloring.
  • These Cotton Candy cupcakes are a prefect treat for any unicorn party. They are a delicious blend of fluffy vanilla cake and sweet swirled frosting, topped with pink fairy floss.

  • Don’t forget about the adults! Offer mini bottles of sparkling wine or champagne with unicorn labels, or create DIY bath salts in pastel colors with essential oils and glitter for a relaxing unicorn-inspired spa day.
