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!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower

You won’t be seeing any baby blues or pinks in this baby shower idea board! Nope, this week’s party inspiration board is for the mom-to-be that loves to mix things up. Unlike some of my more traditional baby shower themes, this week I present you with a bolder baby shower theme. You’ll find richer hues, darker shades, and of course a few handfuls of gold glitter in this twinkle, twinkle, little star themed baby shower.

This baby shower would be AMAZING on a cool and breezy evening, especially on a back patio or yard, when it’s just a little chilly out. Twinkling lights overhead would make for perfect finishing touches, but if you don’t have the space for it, I wouldn’t worry about it. This unique theme makes this a great concept for year round celebrations.

Here’s what I had in mind for this little star themed baby shower:

Have you noticed most stores are pretty much skipping thanksgiving décor and going straight to Christmas everything? Well I have!

And while I’m all for Christmas décor, (it is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for) it kind of seems that Thanksgiving gets the short end of the décor stick.

This week I am sharing with you an inspiration board for your thanksgiving 2013 table. I’m obviously a huge fan of glitter anything, but I really love the idea of having a sparkly thanksgiving table. While the traditional orange and tan and yellows are great, they can get a little boring year after year. Plus, if you shop smart, you can get a TON of post-Halloween pumpkins and décor super cheap, and glitter them up yourself to save a bundle.

Glitzy Girls Night In {for Halloween}

Halloween on any other day of the week but Saturday (and maybe Friday) is a total bore don’t you think? All of the fun dressing up and going up and generally creating mischief either get completely cancelled or minimized to next to nothing. I remember it being weird going trick or treating late one night, then having to be in school bright and early the next morning – complete fun kill!

Since Halloween is on kind of an awkward day this year, I figured I’d share this fun idea with you:

How about hosting a glitzy girl’s night in for Halloween (at least mid-week Halloween)? Have fun, stay in, and catch up with your girls. Maybe pamper yourself before the upcoming weekend festivities?

Nothing too crazy is required for this little get together. A few sparkly décor pieces and some fun cocktails to sip on and you are good to go! Though I think it’s safe to say sweets are always a good idea.

Here’s what I had in mind:
