Summertime Unicorn Piñata Party

Higher temperatures = more outdoor parties!

While the temperatures are rising to meet their summer highs, so does the number of amazing outdoor party themes you have the option to choose from when getting ready for your next soiree. And what kid doesn’t love a fun party in the backyard over the weekend?

This week’s party idea board is a summertime unicorn piñata party, filled with pinatas of all sizes, and of course: the classic unicorn rainbow. I love the layered texture the pinatas naturally bring, but layering rainbows of colors just makes it that much more fun. It goes without saying, that plenty of colorful candy, treats, decorations, and drinks are a must for a successful unicorn party. I often think that a unicorn party is a lot like throwing a candy party, but with more of a whimsical and make believe element to it.

Quick tip: as the summer continues to heat up, I suggest going with warmer, more vibrant hues when selecting your unicorn piñata party decor.

Here’s what I had in mind for this week’s themed party idea board:

Gold Glitter and Pastel Shades Unicorn Birthday Party Ideas

The cuteness! It’s taking over Pinterest. Unicorns are EVERYWHERE, like an adorable plague of happiness and glitter. And to be honest, I’m not even mad! While we are being honest, I’m not even a super unicorn fan. I mean, I don’t HATE unicorns, no, but I was never like “OH MY GOSH UNICORN EVERYTHING”. But the idea of having a young child’s birthday with a full on, unicorn-fever theme….sounds like something I want to be part of.

Now me being me, I like a bit of bling at my events, thus the gold glitter element of this kid’s birthday party decor. Spectacularly shiny, gold glitter unicorns are found in each element, from the invitation, to unicorn party games, to the cake and dessert display, to even the goodie bags and photo backdrop. Cohesion is what it’s all about!

To balance out all that sparkles and shines, the rainbow colors are all along the pastel shades family, so as to not fight with the sparkling gold glitter unicorns. From what I can tell, based on my extensive unicorn party pinning, (check out my unicorn board on Pinterest if you need more ideas for a unicorn party!), an abundance of rainbows are a must for proper unicorn party, birthday or otherwise. Choosing which shade directions, warm or cool, you choose to go can greatly influence the feel of the event, so be sure to have a clear idea of your event mood before you start your shopping!

Of course, they can be used together or apart, but they cover all of the major elements you’d want at a party like this.

Ultimate Pokémon Party Ideas

Pika Pika!

By now there is no doubt you’ve heard of the phenomena that is Pokémon Go. It’s done more for the US obesity epidemic in one week then what presidential efforts have done in decades. This game is taking the world by storm, with users all over getting up and moving around in hunt for their next Pokémon catch, and I can’t blame them! Pokémon has been a long time favorite game of mine since I was younger. I played up through the gold/silver days on Gameboy. If you’re not sure what that means – well it pretty much means I am a fan of the original 151.

But enough nerd talk, we’ve got an exciting board to get to! This week I’ve put together some of my most absolute FAVORITE party ideas I’ve seen thus far. I’d reckon in the future I’ll have to update this as more and more ideas pop up, but for now, I think kids everywhere will enjoy the Pokémon party ideas I’ve put together for this week’s inspiration board. And to clarify, when I say kids, I mean tiny humans and grown adults like myself that still love their Pikachu. Or Charamander in my case. And Jigglypuff. And Sandshrew. Oh and can’t forget Eevee. You know what, I need to stop or I’ll be here for a while, and there are Pokémon to be caught out there!

Here’s what I had in mind for as ultimate Pokémon party ideas:
