We’ve broken it down into 3 easy stages every unicorn party needs for you. First up, let’s start simple with the decorations.


You can pick any colour combination you like because most unicorn parties are rainbow themed. In our mind, no party is complete without balloons so let’s start there. Confetti balloons are a perfect way to add a touch of colour to your party, as well as our gorgeous new star confetti balloons which will add a magical vibe to your dreamy party. Use our how-to tutorial here has everything you need to know about blowing these up. If confetti balloons aren’t for you, our gorgeous pink & purple marble effect balloons are perfect- inflate with helium. Other popular decorations you can use are bunting & tassel garlands. These both create a mystical unicorn vibe can easily be hung on walls, doorways and around venues to impress. Both have a rainbow iridescent affect with pretty in pastel tassels to finish the look with won’t go unnoticed- trust me. Each pack comes with make your own tassels, all have instructions on the packaging to make it easy & straightforward to set up.


The true essentials to any party are of course, the paper plates, the napkins etc. But we’re here to add a bit of fun to your generic paper napkins and make your unicorn dreams come true. With sparkling iridescent unicorn shaped paper plates, napkins in the shape of a unicorn horn, unicorn temporary tattoos & rainbow cups with a unicorn tail in tassels. I mean, tell us this this doesn’t tick all the boxes? To take the stress out this party planning business we’ve put all the tableware you need below with a step by step guide on how to make our unicorn horn napkins.

Extra’s & Party Favors

Is there anything more magical than a unicorn piñata? We didn’t think so. Hang our unicorn piñata up anywhere at your venue and watch everyone have fun trying to get to the goodies! This touch will definitely make your party stand out.

Now we’ve left the best bit until last, don’t let your guests go home empty handed. Make sure everyone gets a unicorn party bag filled with goodies & unicorn themed treats. Struggling for ideas on what to fill your gorgeous party bags with? You can get creative and put whatever you like in the party bags, but I know if we were making them we wouldn’t be able to get enough of love hearts, rainbow drops, our unicorn head bands, a slice of unicorn cake & any other yummy goodies we could find, along with a sprinkle of our paper unicorn & star confetti to decorate. Voila.
