Unicorn party supplies
If you're throwing a baby shower for an expectant mother or a birthday party for an infant, toddler, or preschooler, few themes are more magical than one featuring unicorns. With a splash of color, confetti, sparkle, and shine, a unicorn party can make memories that last a lifetime. When shopping for supplies for your unicorn-themed party, take advantage of a few helpful tips.
Unicorn cards and invitations
When choosing invitations or thank you cards for a unicorn birthday party or baby shower, you'll find plenty of options. Pick products featuring bright colors and bold graphics, and make sure to purchase cards in the desired size.
To make sending invitations easier, look for products in a postcard style. They'll feature space for you to fill in information like who the party is for, date, time, and location. To save money, purchase matching invitations and thank you cards in one convenient package. In case of mistakes, get packages containing at least five extra invitations and thank you cards.
Unicorn baking products
If you plan to make a unicorn-inspired cake or cupcakes, consider shopping for toppers like plastic unicorn horns and ears. You can also find toothpick-style toppers featuring special sayings and edible flowers, stars, and rainbows. For decorations that double as party favors, purchase plastic unicorn rings to top every cupcake. Make unicorn cakes or cupcakes even more festive with rainbow cupcake wrappers and colored candies or sprinkles. Tools you should always have in your cake-making kit include various cake pans, a cake decorating stand, icing spatulas, reusable icing bags, various pastry tips, food coloring, and edible writing gel.
Unicorn gift wrap
Because unicorn gift wrap comes in so many colors and patterns, it's easy to find just what you need. When shopping for gift wrap, look for high-quality paper that won't rip or tear, and help preserve the planet by choosing wrap made with recycled paper and ink.
For a fun alternative to gift wrap, try unicorn gift bags, gift boxes, or colorful tins. To create the prettiest party gifts, don't forget to purchase ribbons, bows, tissue paper, and tags. Save money and time by purchasing packages that bundle all your gift-wrapping supplies.
Decorating for a unicorn party is almost as much fun as attending one. For a great indoor or outdoor decoration scheme, consider a large unicorn banner that you can hang on a wall or fence. Look for a rectangular banner or one featuring a number of pendants.
No party is complete without balloons, and a unicorn theme delivers plenty of choices. Purchase blow-up latex balloons to decorate an archway, buy helium balloons to float above the party table, and decorate each place setting with a small unicorn foil balloon on a stick.
More decorative products for a memorable party include unicorn garlands, colored streamers, and fun centerpieces. Think paper flower bouquets, jars filled with colorful candies, and pretty marshmallow trees.
When shopping for unicorn party supplies, don't forget decorative tableware. If you're looking for a budget-friendly option, you can find birthday kits stuffed with everything you need, including a unicorn tablecloth, plates, cups, napkins, and matching colored utensils.
In case of spills and other mishaps, make sure you have at least one and a half times the amount of tableware you need for your guests. For extra durability, shop for tableware featuring plastic plates and cups and reuse them for another party or share them with friends.
Unicorn party games
Games make any party more enjoyable. For a unicorn birthday party, trade pin the tail on the donkey for pin the horn on the unicorn. For more birthday cheer, play unicorn bingo or ring toss, have a unicorn treasure hunt, print unicorn coloring pages, and purchase a unicorn pinata. When shopping for a pinata, look for a pull-string style for very small children and opt for a traditional pinata for older kids. Stuff your pinata with favorite candies, packages of snacks and nuts, or small party favors.
Unicorn party favors
When you purchase party favors, every guest goes home with a treat. For a unicorn birthday party, start with colorful hats and party blowers. Also look for decorative embellishments like unicorn horns, glitter, feathers, tassels, and LED lights.
At the end of the festivities, send children home with small, decorative bags stuffed with candy, popcorn, pretzels, nuts, fruit snacks, or toys. Fun ideas for party toys include tiny rubber balls, glow-in-the-dark bracelets, unicorn stickers, unicorn headbands, silly string, and containers of slime or bubbles.
