Rainbows and Unicorns Birthday Party

We are not the type of family that celebrates our kids birthdays at fancy places with lots of people.  I don’t like chaos and we like to do everything on a low budget.  So when birthdays come around, I like to be creative in how I can make the event special, without spending loads of money.  Through the years, what I have found my kids like best is picking out a theme for their party.  I then order napkins and tablecloths with that theme and call it a day.  But as the party gets closer, I can’t help but scour Pinterest for great ideas to match the theme and brainstorm how I can turn my house into a wonderland for my kids – without breaking the bank.

This year for my daughter’s 5th birthday (sniff sniff I can’t believe she’s 5) she chose Rainbows and Unicorns.  As a horse lover myself, I was so excited she picked such a theme!  Here is what I came up with to make the day special.


  • Paper banner (tutorial to come)
  • Colorful balloons & streamers
  • Theme dessert plates and napkins
  • Colorful Tablecloths
  • Cutlery, dinner plates and cups to match

(Other food was available, but these were the rainbow themed foods)

  • Vegetable platter (tomatoes, carrots, yellow peppers, celery, blue corn chips, olives)
  • Brownie cake with a rainbow using M&M’s (the dark chocolate M&M’s come in pink, white and purple)
  • Fruit Kabobs (strawberry, cantaloupe, pineapple, green grape, blueberry, purple grape)
  • Cupcakes (strawberry and vanilla, frosting with rainbow sprinkles and unicorn topper)

The party was short and sweet and we celebrated with our family and close friends.  Most of our party supplies were found at Oriental Trading (http://www.orientaltrading.com/api/search?Ntt=unicorn).  Hope you got some ideas for your own Rainbows and Unicorn Party.  Enjoy! 🙂
