Magical decor

Decorating can be easy and fun, especially when you have a strong baby shower theme like ‘unicorn’. You can play on lots of different ideas and color pallets from rainbows to soft pastels. 

  • Unicorn- anything! From paper napkins and plates to photobooth accessories, you’ll be sure to find unicorn-inspired stuff. 
  • A unicorn or rainbow pinata - Pinatas are great because they double as an activity. Talk about a win-win. 
  • My Little Pony - Do your parents still have your stash in the basement? Could be a fun way to put those to use! Mix them on tables with flowers that match your colors. Easy!
  • Balloons and garlands - Bring your party to a new level with some of the kits you can find online. We like this Ukid one on Amazon. This décor product might be the most impressive bling at your party! It comes with 148 pieces, including latex rainbow-colored balloons and sizes, a unicorn foil balloon, ribbons, and other tools to help you make the perfect balloon garland.  This kit is ideal for both indoor and outdoor celebrations.
  • Clouds - From fluffy cotton to cloud shaped cutouts, you’ll be inspired with lots of options.
