Unicorn Ice Cream Birthday Party

Being an avid party decorator, I love to seize every opportunity to throw a party and my kids birthdays are no exception. My oldest daughter had just turned 6 and we’d been scheming to have a unicorn ice cream birthday party for her since last year. Decorating for this theme was so much fun! Enjoy the colorful details!

On the morning of my daughter’s birthday, my girls ran down stairs and oohed and aahed over the party decorations. The looks on my kids faces was priceless and so worth all the time I put into the planning. 

Food:

In regards to food preparation, I try to keep it simple. In this case, I bought all the toppings for a self serve ice cream bar. I found the ice cream toppings in the baking and candy isles and colorful sprinkle donuts in the bakery section. Also, decaf coffee punch was a big hit. My little two-year old boy especially loved it and kept going back for more.

Decorations:

Mostly, I like to keep my parties simple yet elegant. Creating a unique party theme and picking out the perfect color scheme are important parts of the planning process. On my quest for decorations, I discovered some beautiful pink hanging paper fans at Hobby Lobby. They have a huge selection of colors in the party section.

Also, Target is another great option to check for party supplies. Target has the dollar spot right in the front of the store, which is full of unique items. I’m constantly checking in to buy confetti, banners, holiday decorations, you name it! Plus you can’t beat the price!

I found super cute free printables shared by Darlene Meier, a creative lifestyle blogger.

Personal Favorite:

Last but not least, my personal favorite decoration was the unicorn head pinata. My husband and I made this by hand and it was easy and fun! We used card board to shape the unicorn head and tissue paper for the final touches. YouTube has some easy tutorials to follow. Our pinata was more sturdy than usual and we had to ask the older kids to whack it pretty hard to get the candy out! All’s well that ends well!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you can use some of my unicorn party ideas to plan your next event! Happy party planning!
