1. Color Scheme

The most important thing you should do before party prepping, is to establish a color scheme.

These are the colors that you should stick to when it comes to buying decorations and the foods and drinks you will present.

This way they will all match and your party will look cohesive and well put together. Popular unicorn color schemes include rainbow, pastels, and pinks/purple. Glitter is also essential for any unicorn party!

2. Decorations

18 Super Cute Unicorn Party Ideas

No party is complete with decorations! You can find many cute unicorn-themed decorations at dollar stores or even on Amazon.

If you want to go more high-end, then check out Etsy for some great and unique unicorn decor ideas. If you have a smaller budget, you can easily make your decorations too!

Think streamers, balloons, banners, and confetti! And as always, the more sparkle the better! Remember to stick to your established color scheme. 

3. Balloon Arch

For a real showstopper, add a balloon arch to your unicorn decor! These statement pieces are great for pictures and improve any party space significantly.

You can hire these from party companies, or even buy a set to create your own. You can mix and match different colors from your scheme to create the perfect arch.

If you wanted to be fancy, you could even make a rainbow out of balloons!

4. Unicorn Piñata

Piñatas are not only great as decoration pieces, but they also make for a great party activity!

Make sure you get one that has a hole in the top so that you can fill it up with candy and other small treats!

To make this piñata extra special, make sure that you use glitter or confetti inside as well, for a fun surprise when it cracks open! It’s super easy to do and looks amazing!

5. Dress Up

Having a dress-up station is a great way to encourage play and to make your party even more fun!

You can section off an area and hang your favorite dress-up clothes for everyone to enjoy! You can get paper unicorn horns for cheap online so that everyone can become a unicorn!

Or if you are feeling really crafty, set up a “make your own wings” activity for the kids to do.

6. Glitter Crafting Table

Another inexpensive and great activity you can include at your party is to have a crafting table.

Set up a small table and add all sorts of craft supplies so that everyone can sit down and have fun creating their masterpieces!

You can include glitter, glue, pom poms, pencils, crayons, and different colored papers. Think coloring in books, or even beads and supplies for jewelry making.

Not only is this fun for your guests, but they will be able to take home something of their own as well!

Who doesn’t love crafts?! Make up some fun crafts to keep the kids busy during the party. This includes things like face painting, finger painting, art projects, etc.

7. Unicorn Cupcakes

Cupcakes are a must at any party. To fit with the theme, draw unicorn faces on top of your cupcakes, and add mini ice cream cones to create the unicorn horn.

No unicorn cupcake is complete without edible glitter! These will look super cute on the party food table, and they will taste yummy too.

You can also use food coloring to change the color of the cake itself so that they fit the theme of your party! 

8. Unicorn Punch

There are so many easy non-alcoholic punch recipes online that you can follow. Then simply add ice, some drinking glitter, and you will have yourself a magical unicorn potion!

Alongside this, you can find unicorn paper cups that you can enjoy the drink out of! To make the drinks look extra special, add some colorful paper straws.

9. Unicorn-Themed Photo Booth

A photo booth is another great addition to any party. They are a lot of fun and people love taking photos together.

At the end of the night, you can print them out and put them into frames to display around the house so that you can remember the occasion forever!

This is a simple idea, but it makes such a big impact! Decorate your booth with a fun glittery background and make sure to supply lots of unicorn-themed props!

10. Unicorn Birthday Cake

Nowadays there are tons of adorable birthday cakes available online.

If you want to go with a traditional-style cake, then why not try making a unicorn cake? You can find a ton of ideas online, including how to make unicorn cake pops.

The perfect centerpiece to a party table is the cake! You can make your own or even find one to buy. Everyone will enjoy eating it afterward too!

11. Pin The Horn On The Unicorn

Much like the classic game of pin the tail on the donkey, this is a fun twist that is perfect for a unicorn party!

To make your version, draw or print out a unicorn (without the horn of course!) and stick it up on a flat surface.

Then all that is left to do is create some horns that guests can use to take their guesses at where it should be! Don’t forget to include a blindfold! 

12. Magical Milkshakes And Unicorn Food

Another one of our fave unicorn party ideas are drinks. What better way to celebrate than by having a milkshake?! Make your unicorn milkshakes using vanilla-flavored ice cream and chocolate syrup.

Add sprinkles, candy, and other toppings to make it more magical! Use decorative cups and other edible decorations to make the drink look spectacular and taste super yummy!

When it comes to catering, there are so many ways to serve food at a party! You can have a buffet, or set up a dessert bar.

Or you can just grab a few items from your pantry and serve them as finger foods. Whatever you decide to do, don’t forget to add a bit of magic to your menu!

13. Unicorn Invitations

What would be the point in preparing for a party if you forget to hand out the decorations?!

Of course, for any unicorn-themed party, you are going to want some unicorn invitations.

You could either make your own or order them from Etsy.com. Either way, these are such an important part of the party planning process.

It’s always nice to send out invites before the event starts so that everyone knows what time to arrive, and you will know how many people to expect and prepare for!

14. Unicorn Party Favors

Gifts aren’t only for the birthday person! You can make up small bags of gifts and treats for all of your guests to thank them for coming to your party.

These favors are also a great way to get creative and come up with something unique for each guest.

For example, you could give them a bag of rainbow-colored sugar cookies, a book about unicorns, or maybe a cute unicorn cookie cutter.

15. Unicorn Letters

Why not personalize your party with letters spelling out the name of the birthday person?!

You can make these yourself, find the letters at a craft store and decorate them with your supplies, or order them online!

These make a great decor piece and will make the birthday person feel extra special!
