Sparkling Unicorn Party Supplies and Inspiration

by Maria

If you have someone in your life who loves magic and sparkle, then you might need Sparkling Unicorn Party Supplies and Inspiration.  This magical gold & pastel birthday party theme is true to my heart. This party was exclusively for my little Isabella’s 4th birthday.

Having a dessert table complete with decorations and favor boxes is a fun way to get started.  We featured cupcakes, cake, cookies, chocolate covered oreos and jelly beans.

I really didn’t think our guests would eat it all, but it was so pretty. How could they resist?

Isabella is my daughter, who has the spirit of a Pegasus and the lightness of a Unicorn. We adopted her from foster care in the US when she was 2 years old.  She has the brightest spirit of anyone I know. Always smiling. Very quick thinking and spirited.

This is her SECOND sparkling unicorn party, but she was so insistent.  If you follow me, then you know I let my kids have a resounding “YES!” where I can. If she wants a second unicorn party, then that’s going to happen.

That way I feel okay saying no to a second unicorn cupcake!

Unicorn decorated sugar cookies with gold shimmer

One of the tricks to a sparkling party for any theme, is to layer in gold or silver accents.  This table runner, I picked up from Party City.  It has been used for many themes and it has gold sequins.



I ordered these adorable cookies from Andrea Bakes. She ships, and they were so cute with golden horns. There are also lots to choose from on Esty.

I would say that adding cookies is a special touch I like to do for each party.

Check out last year’s Teddy Bear Birthday. These cookies were DELISH!

Here are my super special chocolate covered oreos unicorn style!



I know, I know! This is technically a sparkling Pegasus, but the wings were so beautiful.  I bought some small unicorn plastic toys and spray painted them gold.  They were such a cute touch.

We had to have a set of fun printables that I set around the area. I placed them in these $2 gold frames from Party City.

Jelly beans are so fun to snack on while you wait for cake. I chose to use pastel purple, pink, blue and white candies in a gold bowl with scoop.  I picked these up at Party City as well.

If you don’t love making cake, you could buy a store bought cake and add sprinkles to it.  I made this one from a box and added my AMAZING, easy buttercream frosting.   To add sprinkles to the sides, tap them on the sides lightly after the buttercream has set for about 20 minutes. It will be able to stick without it being too sticky.

Did you see the gold stars on top? Gotta keep up the sparkle!

I had two fun activities for this group.  First was a jump house with unicorn on the front. I had a lot of four year olds, and some 4th graders. It was fun to watch them play all together.


Unicorn party games

Our pin the unicorn horn was a hit.  We cheered and everyone smiled ear to ear.

Such a fun game to play! Pro tip… everyone will want to go first! Start with the birthday girl and go in order of age. Here is my birthday girl trying to peek!

I got these unicorn cupcake wrappers from our Tinselbox Parties and Holidays Magical Unicorn Collection!

The plates and napkins were very pretty as well from Party City. I thought these were really pretty, so they went well with my theme. Your unicorns don’t need to be exact! But this one has some gold in the trim as well.

This balloon is EVERYTHING. They have this in purple, pink and rainbow.  I bought 6 marble balloons, a giant 4 and a happy birthday balloon in a bundle.

And lastly, my pinata.  She was so adorable she ended up being a decoration and a photo booth prop!
