It would be impossible to do a trend report this year and NOT talk about unicorns. They are showing up everywhere from Starbucks to decor to beauty products. The trend is characterized by vibrant pastels, shimmering pearly finishes, rainbows, and, of course, lots of glitter!
Unicorn parties are HUGE right now for birthdays and baby showers. This unicorn birthday party from TheIcedSugarCookie.com is a great example of all the whimsical, soft, and sugary goodness of a unicorn party.
Although incredibly sweet, these unicorn macaroons are way beyond my level of expertise. However, the cupcake and cake toppers here are an incredibly easy way to turn ordinary cakes into magical unicorns.
And while we’re talking about getting crafty, I posted the easiest tutorial on how to make these adorable unicorn party lanterns here.
While it’s perfectly acceptable to go over the top with this theme, I do love the idea of incorporating unicorns in more subtle and sophisticated ways like this lamp from jillianharris.com.
Another great example is this statement wall from bloglovin.com.
Even more minimalistic examples are this shirt and framed art.
Finally, if you do host a unicorn party think about including a ‘pin the horn on the unicorn’ game. You can get one here or make your own and let the guests decorate their own horns!
Don’t forget to connect and show me your unicorn party pics!
Love + lots of glitter,
