Unicorns are the hottest craze right now. From unicorn bath bombs to unicorn dyed hair, we just can’t get enough. I was so excited because one of our party clients requested a Unicorn themed party for her daughter’s 5th birthday (see more of our parties here). Here are a few fun Unicorn birthday party ideas to help make your party a success! Want something different? Check out this Unicorn Spa Party and free printables.

Bright Color Scheme for Unicorn Birthday Party
For a successful unicorn birthday party, you’ll need bright rainbow colors! I love the look of the pastel colors more so than the true rainbow hues. To get this look, we used colorful curtain panels, a Hot Pink Sequin Curtain, a Rainbow Sequin Tablecloth and some fun Tissue Paper Tassels. I found the ceramic rainbow in the Dollar Spot at Target. The centerpiece is made using a tissue pom pom, a horn made from gold glitter paper, faux flowers and two eyes cut from black card stock.
Unicorn Birthday Party Themed Food Ideas
This fun treat table included Unicorn Poop (Sixlets), Unicorn Horns (swirled lollipops), Unicorn Fluff (cotton candy), Unicorn Bacon (sour patch strips) and of course cupcakes. There was also Unicorn Punch for guests to enjoy (I love this recipe) and water bottles with custom Unicorn labels.

Strike A Pose (and other fun Unicorn Themed activities)
These fun photo booth props are available in the full printable package in my Etsy shop. A photo area with a few fun props is a great way to entertain guests! Additionally, some other magical unicorn ideas include face paint, glitter tattoos, unicorn hair with a glitter part, sparkly makeup, mini manicures, pin the horn on the unicorn and unicorn horn ring toss.

Unicorn Birthday Party Favor Bags
Favor bags can be a fun way to give your guests a special ‘thank you’ for coming to the party. TIP: Include a sweet Thank You card inside the bag so that it saves you the hassle of having to write Thank You cards after the party. These white favor bags have my printable horn, flower and ear sets (included in my Etsy shop listing) to make cute and easy take home favors for your guests. You can add extra paper flowers for a fun, upgraded look!
