I remember the days (of yore?) when I was obsessed with Unicorns. So when my son’s good friend announced he was going to have a Rainbow Unicorn birthday party, I jumped at the chance to decorate it!
Now, I know what you may be thinking, a Rainbow Unicorn birthday party for a 9 year old boy? And not just Rainbow Unicorn, but (in his words) an “Awesome, Shiny, Glitter, Rainbow Unicorn Party”. My policy is “You want a specific party theme? You got it!” With only about 2 weeks notice, I dove in to coming up with some truly sparkly rainbow-y graphics for his party decorations. Here he is, enjoying the spotlight – wearing a pink quilted jacket and a pink glitter purse that, by the way, was filled with nerf gun bullets. The kid is a ham.
Party snacks are always a good idea, freshly popped corn in cute personalized boxes, and fruit salad in cute little paper nut cups from the Target dollar bin. I added 2″ round cupcake toppers to the fruit, and giggled a little bit when the kids used them as cutlery.
Desserts! I knew the parents of the birthday boy were ordering a bakery cake, but he also asked me specifically for some sweet treats. How can you say no? And (most) of the items were SO easy! I made Fruity Pebbles marshmallow treats in the perfect shade of rainbow, brownie bites (from a box mix) topped with a little frosting and sprinkles, and carrot cake/salted caramel cake pops decorated with a matching flag.
You can’t forget a little party favor!
Also, I obviously couldn’t help myself but make a tiny Unicorn piñata. Easy tutorial coming next week!
Now for the activities. The kids really wanted to make wearable unicorn horns, so that’s what we did! Also, you just can’t get away without a Pin-the-horn-on-the-unicorn game! The game had no prize per se, just bragging rights. The birthday boy’s sister asked me for Unicorn photo booth props – I really need to learn how to say no. But, come on! How cute! Also, a real Unicorn piñata! Sadly, I think my little tiny one felt a little jealous.
What else… oh, CAKE! The bakery cake was made without any embellishments, so we added a mini-bunting cake topper and a ton of sprinkles. Happy Birthday Vinnie!
