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 Flower Wreath Or Bouquet

PAPER FLOWER WREATH – DIY PROJECT

img_3168

A bouquet of fresh flowers is a beautiful sight; however after a few days in a vase they wither away. Why pay a fortune for fresh flowers when you can create a gorgeous paper bouquet or a flower wreath that lasts a lifetime, by using pages from a book! And don’t feel guilty about ripping up expensive books… get one from a thrift store for cheap! The flowers create a beautiful, timeless pattern that’s perfect for home décor or gifts. Use these flowers to embellish a wreath, decorate a book-themed party, scatter as a table arrangement, add as gift toppers, or gather together to form a lasting floral arrangement in a vase or on a wreath.

The instructions for the flowers are for the flower style shown above, but there are so many different styles of flowers to make too!  So get creative and make as many different styles of flowers as you want for your bouquet or wreath.

 Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Book
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Hot Glue Sticks
  • Craft Sticks, Glass Marbles, Vase, or styrofoam wreath form (optional)

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

1.) To make each flower, rip out six pages from your book. Cut various petal sizes in your desired shape, ranging from 2″ to 3.5″.  Gently roll each book petal around the pencil (see image #1) to create a curved shaped petal.

2.) Starting with your smallest petal, roll it completely into a tunnel shape to make your middle piece (see image #2), and seal it closed at the bottom with hot glue.

3.) Wrap a new petal around the middle piece, and glue in place at the bottom. Layer outward and shape as you go, gluing each new petal in place at the bottom of your flower (see image #3).

Once the flower is finished, it can be mounted on a craft stick or bamboo skewer, and placed into a vase.  Or simply hot glue each flower to a ribbon wrapped styrofoam wreath form.

Make as many flowers as needed for your wreath or bouquet.
