You guys know I love a party that goes big with a theme. When that theme gets even cuter because the guest of honor dresses to match, I’m in heaven! In this case, our brand new 1-year-old wore the most adorable rainbow tutu and unicorn onesie. It was clear from the beginning that this party would be a wee-one’s wonderland – a unicorn themed celebration filled with all the magic and fun that comes with these mystical and colorful creatures. More importantly (as with most toddler-aged occasions), my client also wanted a design that would appeal to all ages and not be too cartoony.
We transformed a simple space with a crisp white canvas created by soft drapes and linens against both clear acrylic chairs and white chairs. From there, the room was drenched in color by rainbows of purples and blues dotted with accents of sparkling gold. We decked out the kids’ table with magical place settings that included a unicorn horn for each little guest, while the adults sat at smaller cocktail tables accented by simple floral with a perfect vantage point to keep an eye on the kids.
The fantasyland got even more exciting once it was time to open the beautiful dessert display. Not only did this installation create a beautiful party backdrop with a dramatic and colorful balloon swag, but with exquisite unicorn details on each individual sugar cookie, cupcake, macaron and cake pop, it made for an adorable way to satisfy a sweet tooth – no matter what age the guests were!
Sugary sweet treats weren’t the only hit at this party. We designed a kid-friendly lounge and play space with a rocking unicorn, play tunnel and ball pit for the kids to enjoy, before the entertainment got even more hands-on with a bubble show, face painting and, of course, an appearance by a real unicorn.
No matter what milestone a birthday nods to, a vibrant theme and a great group of guests is sure to make it memorable – and magical, especially for one very special 1-year-old!
