Unicorn Theme Birthday Party and Tablescape


First, many of our parties are spur of the moment... impromptu and generally finalized the night before or the day of the actual party...anyone else party this way? 🙂  Now...one must understand that this Unicorn themed 1st Birthday party had been in the works since Black Friday 2017 (we actually got a few Birthday party ideas from this shopping trip...the boys attribute our idea/ideas to "madness caused by lack of sleep and a partial food coma.") Ahhhh...yet the boys should know us better by now...any excuse to throw a party is a good one and a First Birthday is something...well that only comes along once! So sit back, relax and join us in our little unicorn Birthday world.....


The night before the party we got a jumpstart on decorating, we assembled this adorable printable unicorn Birthday sign by Diana Miller http://www.thegirlcreative.com

We added the little flowers and attached the cutouts to the ribbon by mini clothes pins 🙂 


So while many things went better than planned and according to plan...there were a few minor "quick make a plan B..." moments. Like when we realized we didn't have 18 cream colored napkins -insert uh-oh face here- (I was 99.9999% sure we had 20....but Jen reminded me that we have a few diabolical animals and they like to sneak into the laundry and find things to shred and play with...enough said...we were down to 15.) Then we remembered an old painters cloth that had been meant to be to recycled at H&M. With scissors in hand we got to snipping! 


We rolled our freshly made painters cloth napkins and wrapped them with paper unicorn dessert napkins 🙂 See it all worked out.....

From Amazon we purchased blush colored plastic plates, they looked quite pretty and at the end of the night we would have the option of  "to wash or not to wash?"


We set our unicorn ducks in a row, filled up the favor bags and topped them off with printable Thank You stickers from The Girl Creative.


It was then time to arrange the flowers! Ranunculus (from Big Rock Community Farms Market) was at the top of our flower list. These whimsical beauties added that pop of color to our arrangements, topped off with Unicorn Headbands they created a certain magic to the setting.
