When it comes to throwing a truly enchanting birthday party, unicorns are always a magical choice. Whether your little one is obsessed with "My Little Pony" or simply adores sparkly, mythical creatures, a unicorn-themed birthday party is guaranteed to bring joy and wonder. Luckily, planning a unicorn party doesn't have to be as elusive as finding an actual unicorn! Read on for some tips on how to create a magical event that will make your child's special day truly unforgettable.

The Essentials of a Unicorn-Themed Birthday Party

The beauty of unicorns lies in their ability to capture the imagination. As you plan your unicorn-themed party, aim to recreate that sense of wonder and amazement. Here are a few key elements that you'll want to include:


When it comes to rainbows, think abundance! Incorporate all the colors of the rainbow into your decorations, from sprinkles and confetti to rainbow props and multicolored balloons. Remember, the more colorful, the better!


You can't have a rainbow without some happy clouds! Fluffy and fun, clouds add a cute and cheerful touch to the decor. Just make sure they're balanced out by those vibrant rainbows.


Unicorns are all about sparkle and shine. Embrace glitter and shimmer by incorporating iridescent gold and silver accents into your decorations. Whether you choose to take on glitter crafts or opt for shiny, sparkly accessories, make sure to let your inner unicorn sparkle.

Pastel Colors

Create a whimsical atmosphere with gentle shades of pastel blue, pink, and purple. These pretty hues echo a unicorn's multicolored mane and set the tone for a truly magical day.

Stars and Moons

Add a touch of intergalactic wonder by incorporating twinkling lights and celestial shapes into your decorations. Let your party guests feel like they've stepped into a world as fantastical and otherworldly as unicorns themselves.

These elements are the building blocks of a unicorn-themed party that will sparkle and shine. But why stop there? With a little imagination, you can bring this theme to life in even more extraordinary ways. Start by customizing your color scheme to make it uniquely yours.

Choosing Your Unicorn Color Scheme

To make your unicorn party truly magical, consider adding your own twist to the essential elements, including the color palette. Unicorns are mysterious creatures that defy expectations, so why limit yourself to just one set of colors? Here are some color scheme ideas to inspire you:

Classic Unicorn

For a nod to the classic unicorn color scheme, let the decor shine with elegant shades of shimmering white and silver. Don't forget to add fluffy white clouds for an extra touch of whimsy.

Midnight Unicorn

Imagine the enchantment of a unicorn at night. Pair darker shades of blue and purple with plenty of silver accents. To create an extra celestial vibe, decorate with images of glittering galaxies, moons, and stars.

Sunshine Unicorn

Think of a sunny field of daisies on a beautiful summer day. Incorporate yellow, white, and gold into your color scheme to give your party that extra warm glow.

Garden Unicorn

Picture a gentle unicorn prancing happily through vines and rose gardens. This dreamy color scheme requires lots of green, along with plenty of pretty plants and flower crowns.

No matter which color scheme you choose, it will look dazzling when paired with unicorn motifs and special decor touches. Let your imagination run wild to create a party truly unique to your child's taste.

Serve Up Something Special with Unicorn-Themed Snacks and Treats

Unicorns demand a meal that's as extravagant as they are, so make sure to serve your party guests a magical feast filled with rainbow and unicorn-themed foods. Here are some fun ideas:

  • Unicorn Fruit Tray: Create a healthy snack with a tray of fruits in a rainbow of colors. Use strawberries and raspberries for red, grapes for purple, blueberries for blue, kiwi for green, and pineapple for yellow. Swirl some food coloring into vanilla yogurt to create a rainbow unicorn fruit dip.

  • Unicorn Milkshakes: Put a whimsical spin on classic strawberry milkshakes. Top the smoothies with clouds of whipped cream, rainbow sprinkles, and multicolored marshmallows for an extra touch of magic.

  • Magical Unicorn Bark: Swirl up a tray of unicorn bark for a treat that's as sweet as it is unique. Check out the recipe from A Magical Mess, which involves a few bags of cute candy melts and rainbow sprinkles.

With these delightful treats on the table (and served on super special unicorn plates), you're guaranteed to keep your herd of unicorns happy and satisfied.
