My niece just turned 10 a few short weeks ago.  We celebrated at a local trampoline park with all her cousins and friends from school.  At the last minute, she decided she wanted a unicorn-themed party.  Do you have a unicorn fan in your family too?

Well, it doesn’t take long to find amazing unicorn party ideas on Pinterest, and boy did my sister and I wish we had more time to plan out some cool things for her party.  Today I’ve gathered 14 simple ways to make your little one’s unicorn party absolutely stunning.  These party ideas are simple, budget-friendly, and DIY.

1. Unicorn-Inspired DIY Balloon Arch

Balloon arches make such a spectacular statement at any party and can be a fun DIY project.  Check out Arin’s tutorial on balloon arches for a super simple way to create an amazing centerpiece for your little one’s birthday party.  A balloon arch would be perfect over a photo wall or to drape over a dessert table.  Choose balloons that match your unicorn party’s color scheme, whether that be pastel, rainbow, or iridescent, and get ready to wow your guests and birthday girl.

2. Iridescent Party Decorations

I love these iridescent party decorations from Party City.  I think they make the perfect addition to any magical unicorn party, don’t you? And, they’re reasonably priced.  Adding fun party plates, poppers, and napkins set any party apart and help pull together the theme.  These decorations are so so fun!

3. Unicorn Tattoos

Every good party needs a couple of fun activities for the kids to do to keep them entertained.  Plus, fun activities make your party super memorable.  Set up a tattoo station where the kids can get iridescent unicorn tattoos applied.  How cute are these?  So simple, and so inexpensive.

4. Instagram Photo Wall

Hang some streamers and rainbow tassels, maybe add some more balloons or fluffy tissue paper flowers, and you’ve got the perfect photo wall for those lovely Instagram photos! This stunning idea can be made super simple by adding just the right things.  I also love this party’s addition of the lettered balloons.  You could use your child’s name, age number, or another word like “party” shown below.  Snap some photos of all of your guests and their kiddos at your fancy photo wall to remember this special day.

5. Dessert Table

Make a big impact at your party with a dessert table.  If you love to bake and don’t mind kids with a sugar-high, then you’ll love this idea.  Just search Pinterest for some cute unicorn-inspired treats {or take a look at the ones I’ve shared with you below} and get to baking.  If some of these ideas look too complicated {some are too much for me to attempt on my own} or you stay far away from any Kitchenaid Mixer, seek the help of a local bakery.  You can even provide treat boxes near your dessert table so that guests can pack up some fun treats for later.

Aren’t these iridescent unicorn horns the perfect party favor for your unicorn bash?  These look super simple and are available through Party City.

7. Rainbow Unicorn Decor

There are so many amazing ideas out there for rainbow unicorn decor.  You can make your party as simple or elaborate as you want.  Here are a few of my favorite ideas from Pinterest.

Pom Poms & Sprinkled Mason Jars

8. “What’s Your Unicorn Name?” Game

Another fun activity or game to have at your party is “What’s Your Unicorn Name”.  It’s a simple print out you can order from Etsy, frame, and add to your cake table, gift table, near the punch bowl or whatever just to add another touch of unicorn whimsy.

9. Adopt a Unicorn

One of my nieces had a cute little puppy party when she was little, and my sister-in-law had an “adopt a puppy” area at her party that was a huge hit.  It was so stinking cute.  So, for your unicorn party, why not have an “adopt a unicorn” station?  You could even pass out adoption certificates with their unicorns and write in their unicorns name.  I think this idea is so unique and special.

10. Unicorn Party Games

Party games are always fun, right?  Why not make a dazzling DIY game of Ring Toss using old wine bottles for your attendees to enjoy?  Or, maybe play a game of pin the horn on the unicorn?

11. Unicorn Crafts

If you are a crafty gal and don’t mind glitter and glue everywhere, then you have to check out these fun unicorn crafts.  These unicorn handprints would be so cute to make with your little guests, or you could make these after the party to use as thank you notes.  Wouldn’t that be adorable?

And, if your little one loves to bake you could have a unicorn horn decorating station using icing, sprinkles, and edible glitter.  Or you could simply buy styrofoam or paper horns and let the little ones decorate their unicorn horns with glitter, stickers, paint, etc. to take home with them.

12. Hair Highlights & Glitter Glam Station

I love this darling addition to any little girls party…a glam station.  At this gorgeous unicorn party, the little attendees got colored highlights in their hair and their nails painted and bedazzled.  How fun is that?

13. Unicorn Goodie Bags & Favors

It’s always nice to send your guests home with something to remember your awesome party.  Of course, if you’re already doing an amazing dessert table with take-home boxes, unicorn horns, crafts, and/or adopt-a-unicorn, you may not feel the need to add in goodie bags.   But, if you do want to send your guests home with a little unicorn magic, here are some of my favorite ideas…

Unicorn Rainbow Lollipops

Unicorn Charm Bracelet

Unicorn Poop

Unicorn Party Favor Bags

14. Rainbow Unicorn TuTu Dress

Let’s not forget about what the birthday princess will wear to her magical unicorn party.  This is by far my favorite unicorn tutu dress on Etsy.  It’s really not simple or budget-friendly, but it is stunning.  Do they make these in adult sizes?

Which unicorn party idea do you like the most?
