My baby girl turned 6 last week. She asked for a unicorn rainbow party. I found the perfect paper supplies at Oriental Trading Company and not only were the unicorns adorable there was a rainbow too. My inner 80’s child was so happy to combine two of my favorites and my daughters too – Rainbows and Unicorns. We went with a rainbow food theme and that was very easy to do with fresh fruits and vegetables plus a few colorful sweet treats like rainbow marshmallow pops and rainbow cupcakes. (OTC is also a client of mine and provided supplies for the party.)
The birthday girl was very pleased with her unicorn rainbow party. We decked the main table out in everything rainbow that we could think of. We listed off ideas together and she came up with a few more but we had to set some limits. Plus, there was no way I was making 8 cups of Jello in 7 colors. It was NOT happening and I have not had luck with layering colored Jello. (You might have seen layered rainbow cups on Pinterest.) Last time I tried that my was about 10 and my grandmother and I made the ugliest layered Jello fruit dessert ever.
I made unicorn horns in rainbow colors for her friends and the Unicorn Horn tutorial can be found on the OTC Blog.
We munched on rainbow foods. Some of the foods were healthy and some were not, but they sure were delicious.
And best of all the kids were able to run around with rainbow colored tails and burn off some of their energy. We tossed hula hoops around traffic cones and had craft time.
With leftover colored sand from last years party we made sand art in little star shaped keychains. The sand art was really the favorite craft for the kids. If you have the opportunity to have it at a party I highly recommend it.
We even colored in rainbows on a rainbow printable.
All the party supplies and other tutorials can be found on the Oriental Trading company site.
