Iridescent unicorn party ideas


Let’s start with the most important part of your unicorn party – beautiful decorations!

The dreamy decorations from our Unicorn Wishes party range are perfect for mixing and matching – ideal for hosts with different sized budgets and party venues.

We particularly love this adorable unicorn tassel garland – hang it along the walls of your party venue or behind your buffet table for a beautiful effect.

Another favourite is this stunning iridescent letter banner. Whether you hang it along the wall or from the ceiling, it’s guaranteed to make a statement.

It’s not a birthday party without balloons – they’re an easy way to spruce up any party venue.

Confetti balloons are super on trend at the moment and it’s a nice idea to mix and match unicorn themed decorations with a couple of non-themed decs.

We particularly love these star confetti balloons.

If you’re after one big, striking decoration that screams unicorn, then this giant unicorn balloon is it! It’ll stay inflated for a couple of days so the birthday girl or boy can take it home with them after the party.

Another one of our favourite party trends is marble balloons! And these pink and purple ones would match an iridescent unicorn party theme beautifully.

Party food

Next up is party food! Whatever you’re planning to serve, these iridescent unicorn-shaped plates are a must-have on your buffet table! Although it’d almost be a shame to cover them with food!

Beautiful parties are all about paying attention to detail – and we know your guests’ eyes will light up when they see these gorgeous unicorn cups!

Napkins are napkins… Or so you may think! These iridescent napkins look just like unicorn horns when you roll them up, making them a lovely table decoration until you’re ready to use them.

Birthday cake

Now for the cherry on top of your unicorn party… The cake!

And it’s much easier to create a magical unicorn birthday cake than you’d think.

Simply decorate a plain white cake (either homemade or shop-bought) and decorate it with lollipops, sprinkles, iced gems and this lovely ‘make a wish’ cake topper.

The finishing touches

Last but not least, add the finishing touches! We love the idea of giving each guest a cute unicorn tattoo when they arrive (or popping one in each party bag!)

Or lay a unicorn headband like this at each place setting for your guest to wear during the party!
