We’ve all seen the endless rows of unicorn stationary in the shops, printed unicorn tops on our little ones, and a room full of fluffy unicorn toys at home…

The obsession is real and it’s growing fast!

So, why not go ALL out on the unicorn obsession and, throw a unicorn party! 

The more glitter, the better!

Here’s a few tips on how to transform your children’s birthday party into a fantasy filled unicorn delight…

Glitter Bombs, Colourful Horns, and Unicorn Outfits!

1. Glitter Bomb Invite

You need to set the mood right at the beginning of a big event, right? Well, that’s why you need to start creating unicorn magic right from the very beginning!

Gather all your stationary, glue guns, glitter, and get your child to help you design a spectacular invite to their unicorn party! 

Plus, your guest will love opening up the envelope and finding a glitter bomb surprise hidden inside…

It’s fun, and it adds a lovely little touch.

2. Turn Your Guests into Unicorns

Yes, turn your guests into unicorns. I mean, you can’t have a unicorn party without unicorns, right?

Everyone loves to dress up and, especially when it involves turning into a colourful, magical creature! 

You can create some unicorn tails and horns before the party, so when the guest arrives, they already get in the unicorn spirit!
