Ten (10) Beautiful Unicorn Party Ideas

Unicorn birthday parties are super popular and loved by many kids, especially the little ones. A unicorn theme might be perfect for your child’s first or second birthday and it can make celebrating their first year or two of life super fun!



1. Send Out Unicorn Party Invitations

Plan to send out party invitations a couple of weeks in advance so that the parents of the other children can save the date in their calendar. The invitation can have unicorn designs. Get your FREE unicorn invitation cards, banners, cupcake toppers, water bottle labels and more here.


2. Decorate Your Home

Create a festive atmosphere in your home by putting little colorful decorations around the house and setting up a unicorn balloon garland and a unicorn banner. Nothing says “unicorn party” more than a room full of colors and rainbows!

For some extra ideas, hang up a unicorn pinata as a colorful decoration and as a fun party activity full of sweets.

4. Pick Out Unicorn Party Favours for Your Guests

Goodie bags are always welcome at any party and guests appreciate getting a bag of party favours. Add things like unicorn stickers, glitter, confetti, candy and perhaps some inexpensive toys.  


5. Make Use of Free Unicorn Party Printables

Using ready made printables for your party invitations, welcome signs, banners, thank you tags, party hats, cupcake toppers, gift tags and much more makes your life easier by not having to create them yourself from scratch. These items also help solidify your party theme and create a fun festive environment.

6. Serve Colorful Food

Plan a colorful snack for your party guests such as a fruit salad, glazed rainbow unicorn cupcakes, sprinkled unicorn cookies, macaroons, smoothies, hot chocolate or anything that you like! For an extra special touch you can serve pink lemonade in pink glitter cups. 

Make sure to buy all of the necessary food items before and to pre-order anything necessary.


7. Pre-Order Your Birthday Cake

The highlight of your unique party is the birthday cake. Pre-order a custom design before your child's birthday bash to get the perfect design. 


8. Plan Some Unicorn Party Games and Activities

Kids love a game of pin the horn on the unicorn and unicorn ring toss! You can also have the kids make their own unicorn horns, paint, or draw. Fill a table up with glitter, confetti, glue, paint and more and watch the kids get super creative. To make it even more fun, plan a challenge by giving a prize to the best design, like these adorable unicorn headbands

9. Create a Unicorn-Themed Photobooth

You can create a unicorn themed backdrop where guests can take Instagram-worthy photos. The photos can later be printed out and put into a cute little album or uploaded to a common photo drive for everyone to see. This adorable unicorn selfie frame is the perfect addition to your unicorn party photobooth. 


10. Come Up with Your Child’s Party Outfit

Get creative with your kid´s outfit and party hats by making them yourself or by ordering a unicorn costume for them. 


A unicorn party theme is perfect for little kids who love colorful and playful decorations! This theme can come with a lot of ready made printables and fun activities.
