If you’re thinking about doing a unicorn birthday party, then read on for ideas and inspiration! I’m located in Toronto, Canada and will include where I got all my supplies. But first, a little back story!
Turning 30 was kind of a scary thing for me. Where did the time go? Did I accomplish enough in my 20s? Is it going to be all ‘adult’ stuff from now on? Is my youth over? During the past half year or so, I noticed my body changing: a few more white hairs near my temples, more fine lines on my face, my metabolism slowed down. Right now I weigh the most I’ve ever weighed in my whole life. Reality is not always fun and I was getting overwhelmed. It made me think back to when we were kids and birthday parties with balloons and candies were still a thing. Growing up I didn’t have any elaborate theme parties, but now that I’m older with a bit of ‘fun money’, I can finally do what I’ve always wanted…A UNICORN PARTY!!!!
I wanted this party to be colourful and Instagram-worthy while not completely blowing my budget. My first step was to set up a spot where all the photos will be taken. I need a backdrop that’s solid coloured, so I went very budget-friendly and got 2 plastic disposable table covers and hung them up. Next I need decorations that can frame the shot and be clearly visible, they need to be impactful. I went with 4 large helium balloons. I got the unicorn ones from PartyCity and the numbers in rose gold here.
What is a birthday party without cake?! Since it is unicorn-themed, of course I had to get Eunice the Unicorn!!! This magical cake is vanilla funfetti flavoured and soooo cute! Be prepared for your girlfriends to snap lots of pics for their Instagram too ;D You can order it from Le Dolci in Toronto.
Ever since my wedding, I have become flower obsessed. They just make everything brighter and happier. Every excuse I have, you bet I’m going to get some! Convenience and budget were factors so I went with a bouquet from Costco. I grabbed some thin vases from the dollar store, trimmed the stems and organized them and voila!
As for the tableware, I got some unicorn plates and table cover to add to the theme. Instead of regular plastic forks, I got some ‘premium’ metallic plastic ones that gave it a tiny touch of elegance.
Since nostalgia is partially what inspired this party, I wanted some games, treat bags and favours. Do you remember the classic Pin the Tail on the Donkey game? I found a Pin the Horn on the Unicorn version! To complete the look, I got my girls and I some unicorn headbands that are perfect for selfies! Edible favours are always a big hit, so I went with cupcakes for everyone! The yummy flavours were matcha red bean, hazelnut and chocolate raspberry. I got them from Sweet Note in Markham.
Everyone had a lot of fun and it created many new memories for my friends and I. If you’ve ever wanted a unicorn party, I say go for it! Adult birthday parties can be colourful in pastel too!
