Unicorns & Rainbows

My sister threw the cutest 6th birthday party for her daughter Allie a few weeks ago.  The theme was unicorns and rainbows.  It turned out to be such a cute party and I'm excited to share the details with you today.  It seems like unicorns and rainbows are everywhere these days so maybe these ideas will help you throw a themed party of your own.

Unicorns & Rainbows
Haley DIY'd the gold unicorn and made a cake from scratch.  She added a horn to a horse, then sprayed it gold and made a mayonnaise chocolate cake.  It was delicious and gorgeous!

We ate the rainbow with a salad bar for dinner.


 A photo op with the birthday girl and her cake!

All 9 of the cousins on my side were there plus some friends.  Olive loved collecting the balloons and loved the rainbow themed treat bag.


Fletcher got to sit in a high chair for the first time and he loved it!!  This was his face when he realized he was eating a spoon and we were all eating some delicious CAKE.  No fair :)  I'm not a big icing fan, but this chocolate icing was delish.

 Haley had this cute unicorn sign on her entry table to greet the guests and then we all tried to figure out what our unicorn names was during the party.  It was funny and we all had some good laughs.


Great party, sis!! 
She posted some more details and pictures on her blog so head over and say hello :)



My sister also has chickens in her backyard.  All the kids were playing in the yard and having a blast together.  She came in to tell me that Olive had been snuggling chickens.  You won't find me snuggling with the chickens with all of my allergies, but looks like Olive is doing enough snuggling for both of us.  She sent me the following pictures of Olive and Cutie.  Looks like she really does love chickens :)







We are always excited when we can head home for a fun birthday party with family.  It's much more doable with us just being two hours away now.

  11. I can't believe the chickens let the kids near them. I can say I've never held a chicken. Very cute party! I love unicorns and it is great that she DIYed it herself. I also love the idea of doing a salad bar.
