Unicorn Birthday Party by Julie Verville
There is something truly magical about the look in a little girl’s eyes when they fall upon unicorns! One of my absolute favorite things about planning children’s birthday parties is seeing how the guest of honor reacts when they first see their party’s décor….planning this sweet unicorn party was truly a treat!
When creating our main dessert table design, we wanted our centerpiece to be this stunning unicorn standee. So, we decided to place her front and center atop our table as a focal point.
For a ton of shimmer and shine, we attached 8 rows of white fringe to this 8’ standee backdrop which was freestanding behind the table. To add some contrast to this large white shimmer board, and to add height for visual balance, we added a single pink foil balloon and a silver star balloon to either side of our dessert table.
To balance out the table’s height, we created these fun DIY unicorn cupcakes by adding sugar ice cream cones as toppers and "Be Magical" cupcake wrappers around vanilla cupcakes topped with light pink buttercream.
For a whimsical snack in keeping with the party’s theme, we whipped up a batch of "Unicorn Food" treat bags for party guests to snack on, aka white chocolate covered popcorn sprinkled with star shaped candies and pink sprinkles.
