Plan an enchanted birthday party your little girl will never forget with our cute rainbow unicorn party ideas. By Noeleen Foster
Unicorns are mystical and magical and paired with a bright and colourful rainbow, you have the ultimate enchanted rainbow unicorn party that any little girl will love.
9 cute ideas for a rainbow unicorn party
- Start with creating your colourful backdrop. We used paper daisy wheels, but balloons streamers and lanterns could work just as well.
- A white board unicorn silhouette, trimmed with gold glitter glue, really pops on the colourful background.
- Place paper flower pom-poms in colourful little vases on your table for cute centrepieces.
- Food options are endless when it comes to this theme. Why not try a little sweet and salty popcorn (simply sprinkle with tens and thousands).
- Dried fruit makes lovely little individually wrapped fruit sticks – a healthy alternative to all the sugar on the table.
- Striped goodie bags with the words ‘Thank you for making my party over the rainbow’ are great for little guests who want to take home some party treats.
- Play dough is always a winner as a party favour for teeny tots. And we have an easy recipe for edible play dough below. Inexpensive little plastic buckets can be bought from plastic shops.
- Get your little one and her little guests to hold a chalk board with quirky little pictures or sayings for memorable photos.
