Unicorns are one of the latest trends right now for little girls. From unicorn bath bombs to unicorn dyed hair, we just can’t get enough of these magical creatures.

I was so excited because one of our party clients requested a Unicorn themed party for her little girl (see more of our parties here). If you’re searching for how to plan a unicorn party for girls, you’re come to the right place!

Here are a few fun Unicorn 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 party theme, you’ll need bright colors (like a rainbow) that the birthday girl will love! My favorite combination is the look of the pastel colors more so than the true rainbow of colors.

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 Theme Party Decorations

Here are some enchanting ideas to decorate for a magical unicorn-themed birthday party that your little party guests will love.

Unicorn Balloon Garland

Create a majestic entrance or a picturesque photo backdrop with a balloon arch. Use a pastel color palette or unicorn balloons, including iridescent or metallic ones, to craft a beautiful rainbow arch resembling a unicorn’s mane.

Rainbow Streamers

Hang rainbow-colored streamers from the ceiling or along walls to add a pop of color and simulate the vibrant hues of a rainbow, a key symbol in unicorn lore.

Glittery Unicorn Horns

Craft or purchase glittery unicorn horns to place on tables as centerpieces or as props for a unicorn-themed photo booth. These horns add a touch of sparkle and fantasy to the decor.

Unicorn Cutouts and Silhouettes

Cut out unicorn shapes from cardstock or poster board and hang them around the party area. You can also use vinyl or decals to create unicorn silhouettes on walls or windows.

Sparkling Table Settings

Set the party table with iridescent or sequin tablecloths and sprinkle glitter or confetti shaped like stars or unicorns for a magical touch. Use unicorn-themed paper plates, paper cups, and napkins from a local party store to enhance the theme further.

Fairy Lights and Tulle

Drape twinkling fairy lights or strings of pearls around the party space to create a magical glow. Use tulle fabric to create a whimsical canopy or drapes for a soft and ethereal atmosphere for a magical party.

DIY Cloud Backdrop

Craft a cloud backdrop using cotton balls or stuffing attached to a cardboard or fabric backdrop. This cloud backdrop can serve as a charming setting for photos.

Floral Arrangements

Incorporate pastel-colored flowers such as roses, peonies, and hydrangeas in floral arrangements or bouquets. Place them in unicorn-themed vases or containers for a graceful and enchanting touch.

Plush Unicorn Stuffed Animals

Display plush unicorn toys or stuffed animals strategically around the party area as adorable decor accents that will delight the young guests.

These decor ideas will help transform your party space into a whimsical wonderland fit for a magical unicorn-themed birthday celebration!

Unicorn Birthday Party Theme Food Ideas

This fun dessert 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.

Don’t forget a magical unicorn drip cake, cake pops or unicorn cupcakes for the perfect way to celebrate your child’s special day.
