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!

HOW TO MAKE A POM POM GARLAND & COOL POM POM CRAFTS

Screen-Shot-2016-03-23-at-9.43.44-PM-1024x575

There is really no step-by-step instructions to make a pom pom garland.  Its so easy, all you need is pom poms, an embroidery needle with a large opening and string or baker’s twine.

Felt Garland DIY

Simply thread your needle and then pierce the middle of each pom pom and pull your needle through the other end of the pom pom. Easy! Deciding which kind of pom poms to use for your garland or any pom pom crafts will probably be the hardest part.  Pom Poms actually can be handmade or store bought in a few different materials.

Felt poms are more dense and are a bit more difficult to hand make.

Yarn pom poms are the most common and are the easiest to make by hand.  You can simply use your fingers or purchase a pom pom making tool, which makes it go much faster.

I am actually kind of obsessed with pom poms and I keep several glass jars of them in my studio. When I’m having a bad day, I just put my hand in the jar and squeeze.  It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.  Yeah – I just admitted that!
