Always Be Yourself......unless you can be a unicorn, then always be a unicorn! I don't know about you, but I can't think of anything more magical than unicorns! They very thought of them evokes rainbows and glitter and awe.
After dressing up in pretty party dresses and having their hair done, the littles channeled their inner artists and created some magical crafts. Our first was painted and bejeweled jewelry boxes from Oriental Trading, and then we had fun adding jewels and flowers to unicorn headbands (an obvious choice for a unicorn themed day don't ya think?!). I used a combination of tutorials from both Tikkido and Jen T. by Design to create the horns headbands themselves.
The littles snacked on yummy "unicorn poop" made by Say Anything Bakery, and cotton candy cookies and mini cupcakes from Target. Having store-bought treats was a real time saver, and they perfectly matched our theme’s colors.
I'm positively smitten with the way the mini unicorn piñatas turned out! The Target Spritz line has the cutest mini donkey piñatas, so I gave them a few coats of spray paint, added a glittery horn, DIY tissue festooning for the mane and tail, and a cute star rainbow and voila - mini unicorns!
The star plates were a Dollar Tree find and couldn't have been more perfect for the theme.
The napkin rings were actually mini unicorn clothespins from World Market. They were originally white with traditional rainbow tails, but I gave them a little makeover to better fit our overall look.
My sweet friend Alex of Absolutely Alexandria created the magical unicorn printables and they coordinated perfectly.
Our cardboard unicorn head received a little makeover with silver spray paint and glitter, of course, and I added some flowers to make her a little more fancy.
And because I love unicorns so much, I created a bonus alternate dessert table backdrop. As much as I was wanting to have a crisp, white backdrop for this theme, once I started playing with the balloons I knew this backdrop was a goner!
All the littles left camp feeling like magical unicorn versions of themselves, so I'd say it was a successful day!
