Planning children’s birthday parties shouldn’t make you lose sleep at night or cost you an arm and a leg.

I will be showing you how to plan a themed unicorn birthday party on a budget answering all the questions you have.

There are 4 key aspects of planning children’s birthday parties and they are:

  • decor

To Plan A Rainbow Unicorn Birthday Party


Unicorn Birthday Party Decorations:

Unicorns are imaginary creatures with the prettiest colors. In this case, you want kids to feel like they are stepping into an imaginary land where all dreams are possible.

Pink, lavender, purple and other pastel shades should be your choice of color when decorating a themed unicorn birthday party for kids.

You can also use this opportunity as a bonding time with your kids and make DIY unicorn decorations.

Include some unicorn blow up balloons and regular pastel-colored balloons blown up to different sizes and tied together.

Don’t be shy about the colors. Everything will be on the theme as long as you stick to pastel colors.

To make this a success, stick to: unicorn disposable plates, garlands, cupcake holders and toppers, unicorn cups and pastel straws and pinatas.

All of these create the tone so once kids step into the scene, they get into a festive mood immediately because kids get bored quickly.
