Unicorn Theme Party

Unicorn Theme Party
       Hi friends one of my crafty resolutions for 2020 is to get back to sharing crafts with my friends in blog-land and other social media. My daughter and I made so many things in 2019 but photographing and sharing the  projects online took a huge backseat. I had raised the bar on myself and felt either the  projects were too simple or the  photos were subpar or life simply got in the  way and I ended up sharing very few of my projects last year! Trying not to let self doubt and procrastination get in the  way this year!
Unicorns are so popular with both children and adults and we celebrated my daughter's 13th birthday with a super fun Unicorn theme party.
Unicorn Theme Party
My daughter's birthday falls on May 30th and she has summer vacations in April and May ...so every year we spend a good chunk of the  vacation planning her birthday.
We had the  party in our living room so we  put up the  main decorations in our living room.We had a pink and white balloon arch at the  doorway to our living room.
Unicorn Theme Party
We put up pink and white balloons and large flowers all over the  room but concentrated majority of the  unicorn decorations on this wall. You can see a huge handmade Unicorn banner,cute  clouds and rainbows ,a rainbow unicorn, floating hot air balloons and nearly a dozen decoupaged unicorns!

Unicorn Theme Party
The hot air balloons were die cut using the Spellbinders  Hot Air Balloon Contour Steel Rule Die and yes it did take hours to make the  balloons 3d! .My daughter helped to layer the  balloons atop Crealies  oval die cuts and we topped off the  hot air balloon danglers with die cut clouds [ made using Itsy Bitsy clouddie]
Unicorn Theme Party
The balloons dangle from blue satin ribbons and I added  clouds [ made using Memory Box dies]  on alternate ribbons.They looked fabulous swinging in the  wind!
Unicorn Theme Party
We put the  letters of  our "Happy Birthday Prisha" banner on Unicorn faces.The ears and face were made using Crealies  oval foam die cuts ...we could have added unicorn horns but my daughter wanted them to be plain horses!!The tiny floral stamps are also from Crealies  and the  flowers were also die cut with Crealies  dies.
Unicorn Theme Party
 My kiddo made the  Cloud hanging decoration freehand...aren't those cloud eyes simply adorable !!
Unicorn Theme Party- Rainbows and Clouds Decoration
The rainbows were pretty easy to make...we used  foam with rainbow colours and cut out big semicircular arches to make the  rainbows and added Memory Box die cut clouds on the  ends.
Unicorn Theme Party Cloud Pinata
 My little girl[ well officially a teenager but a little girl to me!!] made the  super cute cloud pinata all by herself...in fact she took hours to make it but it does look super adorable doesn't it!
Unicorn Theme Party 
She also drew and colored this gorgeous huge Unicorn..the  locks of hair are outlined with glitter glue and looks really special !
And here is the  birthday girl! The gorgeous hair bow is handmade...I made the  beautiful rose and foliage using foam !
Unicorn Theme Party
We had around 20 teenage girls for our party and planned some simple crafts for the  girls to make . We set up 4 big tables and here is how our table looked.
Unicorn Theme Party
And this is what the  girls made...Unicorn post it note holders. I cut up pieces of chipboard before hand so that the  base would be strong and pre-scored card stock stands for the  holder.Gave the  girls an assortment of pretty pattern papers to choose and lots of embellishments like rhinestones, pom poms , flowers, sequins and glitter to personalize their Post it note holders.
Unicorn Theme Party
The girls also played quite a few games but I didn't have to stress too much about the  games as my daughter herself organised all the  games !!
It was heartening to see the  girls enjoy themselves and after the  party so many of the  girls' mothers messaged me how much the  girls' enjoyed themselves!

I made quite a few Unicorn themed decoupaged decorations and since decoupage is such a time consuming craft ...I started making all the  decorations weeks before the  party!
Unicorn Theme Party
 Upcycled an old plate into a Unicorn!!
Unicorn Theme Party
And recycled a bottle into a Unicorn...this time with a frilly ruffled ribbon top and  pearls!!

Unicorn Theme Party
Made the  Unicorn themed boxes to hold our craft activity supplies by upcycling cardboard boxes
Unicorn Theme Party
And since every party needs tissue boxes...Unicorn tissue boxes!

Unicorn Theme Party
Made 3 Pen stands by recycling old Nutella jars into Unicorns!

They are my personal favourite!
Unicorn Theme Party
I don't have a good photograph of our cake  but here is our 2 tier homemade Unicorn cake...It is a chocolate cake with butter icing done using Russian nozzles. My daughter made all the  cute  unicorns by hand sculpting fondant!
Unicorn Theme Party- Home made Cake
And though no unicorns in this one...I have to share it as it is always so popular at parties...a Jelly Flower cake...completely handmade with Jelly! [I am especially proud of  how it turned out as I managed to make it in between the  mad rush of getting the  house cleaned , putting up the  party decorations , baking and icing the cake and cooking for the  party!!]

  23. Dear Dr Sonia
    Not wow but super duper wow. I would like to know how you made the Jelly cake. The birthday cake too looks super yummy. My grand daughter would have screamed in joy if she saw it as her favourite is Unicorn. May you and your family be blessed always. With loads of love and gratitude

    1. Surekha ji I learnt the jelly cake from a teacher here in Bangalore.It is a Thai art and is made of jelly powder[ like gelatin], coconut milk and a little bit of sugar plus food colouring. Each flower petal and leaf are made by hand by poking into the set jelly with nozzles like in cake icing. If you google 3 D jelly cake flowers you will get some videos
