Party Trend For 2017- Unicorn Parties

PARTY TREND FOR 2017 – UNICORN PARTIES

In case you have not noticed, unicorn themed parties are hugely popular right now.  I recently shared some amazing unicorn cakes on my blog and today I wanted to share some party tables and decorations in this theme.  First, the color scheme can be any shades you want- although bright rainbows are most common, this color scheme shown above utilizes more of a pastel rainbow color mix.  The soft tissue flower frame backdrop is stunning- it really makes a statement at this two year old’s birthday party and adds so much height to the dessert table.  I offer some diy paper flowers in my craft shop so you can create a similar tablescape.

Here is another framed tissue flower backdrop at a unicorn party.  I love the more soft subtle color scheme and the simple decor on this buffet really stands out.  Pinks and golds are trendy and fit in for this theme but a rainbow color scheme is perfect too.

This outdoor party features a designer unicorn cake front and center and a mint green and soft pink color pallette with a touch of gold decor.

I think some unicorn pinwheels would have added an extra touch at the party above!

This unicorn birthday party for Emma has it all with candy and a designer unicorn cake and the bright rainbow decorations.

Finally, this last unicorn party looks like it might have been at the Vatican for the pope!  Actually, its just a simple Venetian living room  . . . not really, its anything but simple! While it appears over the top with all the gold, embellished walls, intricate carved table and flanked with elegant floral arrangements – its classic yet still sweet and whimsical.

So whatever your color scheme or style- consider a unicorn party this year!

DIY PARTY DECORATIONS – FLOWER BALLOONS

FLOWER BALLOONS DIY PROJECT
FlowerBalloon

These daisy flower balloons are so easy to make.  They would look stunning at a little girl’s birthday party or at a baby shower! Great as a retail window display too!  Make them in different colors too! No helium needed! Read on for the easy DIY –

You’ll need either 7″ or 12″ balloons in your colors of choice.  I suggest buying at least two different colors, so you have a contrasting color for your center balloon.  The larger balloons will create a puffier style of flower, rather than the daisy flowers shown here, which are made with the smaller 7″ balloons.

These are fairly easy to assemble.   Let’s get started with the step-by-step directions:

Step 1: Cut two circle templates from chipboard or a cardboard box will work too.  Cut one circle at approximately 6″ across and the other circle at 4″ across.  I find that using a bowl or tupperware container and flipping it over on your cardboard or chipboard and tracing around the edge makes it so easy to make a perfect circle!

Step 2: Blow up five balloons (for the flower petals), make sure they fit through the 6″ hole circle template. This helps to make sure all your balloons are the same size and your balloon flower petals will look consistent.  Easy trick! Next, blow up your center balloons (for creating the flower center), making sure they fit through the smaller 4″ circle template.  A balloon hand pump inflator is great for blowing up balloons and can make it go much faster.

Step 3: Tie two or your inflated balloons together. Create two sets of these double balloons as pictured above.

Step 4: Tie a third inflated balloon together, on just one set of your double balloons.

Step 5: Tie two of the contrasting colors of balloons together, for your centers. Keep in mind, you want your flower centers to show on either side of the full balloon flowers, so you will want two center balloons in a contrasting color.

Step 6: Wrap the double balloon petals around the set of three balloons at the center. Spread out the balloons so they lay flat. Now you can see they have formed a flower petals and a complete flower shape.

Step 7: Wrap the contrasting colors of double balloons, for the flower centers, around the five balloon petals once, so there’s one on each side.  Use clear fishing line to hang the flowers or ribbon or baker’s twine works great too.   These look great hanging behind a party table or anywhere at the party!
