Themed party food will add an extra magical touch to your unicorn party but it doesn’t have to be super complicated or time-consuming. Here are some simple suggestions for unicorn party food.

Unicorn doughnuts

The last (but not least) of our unicorn party food ideas is unicorn doughnuts! Aren’t these cute? And all you need is some white iced doughnuts, some icing and a unicorn horn to make them.


Step four – Play some unicorn party games

Once your party is in full swing, it’s a good idea to have some unicorn-themed party games up your sleeve to keep your guests entertained! Here are some good suggestions.

Pin the horn on the unicorn

This game is a fun twist on ‘pin the tail on the donkey’ for your unicorn birthday party! Simply draw or print out a picture of a unicorn and cut out a unicorn horn for each player. Then take it in turns to pin the horn on the unicorn (while blind-folded) and whoever’s horn is closest to the right spot wins!


Unicorn piñata

Who doesn’t love playing piñata? We’ve got one for practically every party theme and unicorn parties are no exception! You can pick this one up here.
