Eight is a magical age, deserving of a magical party. My daughter picked unicorns for her birthday theme this year and it was too fun!

We had no shortage of sparkles, darling friends, and enchantment. I LOVE planning birthday celebrations for my children.
Today I'm sharing the details of this sweet party, broken down by category.
I picked up the little unicorn cake plates at Walmart.
I adore these floral arrangments from Costco. For $19.99, they are beautiful and easy!
I always do custom napkins for my kids' birthday parties.
Food and Drink
The party took place after lunch time, so we just did some simple snacks, lemonade, and of course birthday cake.
I found the napkins at Homegoods and the plates at Target.
The cake is from Sugar Bakeshop in Denver and was absolutely gorgeous. It was vanilla with caramel filling and so delicious!
These unicorn straws make me so happy!
We had about two dozen kids for this party so I had several activities to keep them entertained. Of course we HAD to have a unicorn bounce house!
These little unicorn wand kits are from Oriental Trading and proved to be an enjoyable craft.
Second grade girls LOVE to color, so I found this free image on Pinterest and we printed them on cardstock.
I've learned to keep party favors simple because no one likes their kid coming home with a bag full of tons of tiny junk. Am I right?!?
When the guests walked in they could choose a unicorn horn.
Each child left with a favor bag holding a little plush unicorn and either a pen or necklace.
I found the custom labels here.
It's always a joy to choose and birthday theme with my children and plan their parties. When else in life can you wear a unicorn headband and eat cake?
I hope you have a magical day!
