We loved this gorgeous printable made for us my our dear friend , Katie, of Celebration Lane!  It looked perfect backed on gold glitter paper, surrounded by gold unicorns and pops of pink flowers!  It perfectly coordinated with the drink wrappers she created for us as well!  We just love the soft colors and the sweet unicorn!

We added rainbow washi tape to a flower box centerpiece to add a bit of rainbow flare to compliment the printable.  It looked adorable and only took a few minutes!  It was paired with the printable and some cute unicorns and florals for a unique focal point on the table.

Our favorite part of any party is the sweets table!  We made sure to include plenty of magical treats including, birthday cake, mini unicorn cakes, cookies, candybobs, cotton candy and more!  The more sweets, the better!  A cloud paper roll served as our backdrop, along with colorful rainbow tassels.  A rosette fabric made for a sweet tablecloth and added a girly look to the table.
