Unicorns have been a big hit this year and my daughter was no exception. In this blog I have put together some tips from our party and how we put it together on a budget.
First up we had to plan things out so Miss Bella and I did a trawl on the internet and combined some things that we really liked.
The first thing was the cake, we liked these three cakes so decided to combine them into one epic Unicorn watercolour candy cake.
Here is a fantastic tutorial on how to make a watercolour buttercream cake --> https://www.stylesweetca.com/2014/07/08/how-to-ice-a-cake-perfect-ombre/
We checked out Kmart and luckily or us they had some tablecloths and other bits and pieces that were perfect.
*Diamond tablecloth for backdrop
*Matching loot bags
*Paper cups that we decorated with pink card and the childrens names
*We already had some pink and purple straws I had picked up earlier on in a sale somewhere
*Used our drinks dispenser for the unicorn juice (a drinks dispenser is always handy to have in your cupboard for such occasions)
*Rainbow fan bunting
*Happy birthday battery lights
We also used various candies in glasses for decoration and eating, one was left over meringues from the cake decorations. The photos are from Miss Bellas 1st birthday cake smash.
This is not the set that Cadence wore, but if I had made it at the time it would have been! :D
Once everyone had their face painted we played our first game which was pin the horn on the unicorn. I just drew up a picture of a horse and cut some wee horns out of paper. We named each horn and the girls lined up for their turns.
We also had a pinata (the small unicorn ones from Kmart and we played pass the parcel. The rest of the time the girls danced to a variety of songs on YouTube.
