Unicorn Birthday Party

{ Pink, more pink and a dash of purple}

Our little big girl had her 4th Birthday Party yesterday, and boy, was it fun! I loved making the preparations over the past few weeks and it was very satisfying to see my girl so pleased and happy together with her friends.
I must confess, the Unicorn theme was more of colour set up – it was great justification to go all pink, purple and white. I’ve heard that pink obsession only lasts for a few years so I took full advantage of the pink / purple wishes… Here a few photos…

The Birthday cake took centre point and was decorated with white and pink pearls and a Birthday bunting.

A huge plate with healthy snacks was strategically placed to catch attention and outweigh all the sugary treats – well, it didn’t fool anyone…all the girls wanted was sugary treats.

Popcorn in cones – it was a real hit and really easy to make. The cones where made of pretty wrapping paper and double sided tape ( my send favourite after the glue gun :-)

Marshmallows dipped in chocolate and decorated with a pink smarties (no, I did not eat the rest of the colours and saved just the pink one’s, I was lucky to find some special edition Breast Cancer Research packets whilst in London last week. 
I found the Marshmallows idea on Pinterest and here is a tutorial.

Jelly flowers – I saw them and loved them, but completely forgot to use the oil spray and although they turned out nice and tasty it was a but of a night mare to take them out of the little silicone moulds. Here is the tutorial I used – very clever.

White chocolate dipped grissini sticks sprinkled with Hundreds and Thousands, real hit with the girls and soooo easy to make.

Chocolate or pink icing decorated pretzels. Absolutely yummy and fun and easy to make. Tip – use bigger pretzels, it will be so much easier and quicker. Here is the tutorial I used.

We also had a crown decorating activity, with lots of stickers and pink and purple feathers. All the girls enjoyed making and wearing their crowns and happily took them home at the end.

Another big hit was the face painting. I totally forgot to take photos but I used pink and white face paint and made some pretty (simple) painting on their cheeks and foreheads. I gave out numbers, so there was no arguing and each girl patiently waited for her turn. 

Whilst waiting the girls did some Unicorn colouring pages. I had prepared four different types and each girl took home the one she did together with one each of the other three to colour at home

And this is what each little girl took home as a favour – a glittery bag, a unicorn rubber band, a magic wand, a balloon,a ring, a hand made rose hair clip and  a little bag of sweets. You’ve already seen the tutorial for the magic wands and I used this tutorial to make the sweets bags. 

Lovely Husband and I had so much fun playing and dancing with the girls and Lovely Little Big Daughter said this morning “ Mummy, the party was wonderful”…aaahhh.

I am going to have some rest today and dream up my next project.

Have a lovely Sunday!
