I can’t believe it’s already almost June – I feel like I say that every month, but honestly this year has just flown by. May has been an absolutely crazy month, with yard work around the house (my mom came down on the long weekend to help me plant my first ever garden!) and the Shop blossoming, and party planning. Then you add in the fact I dropped my Nikon and shattered the lens – a camera I’ve had since I was 16, and the mourning period require to accept that loss, and find time to replace it…just, wow.
ANYWAYS, things are finally starting to settle down, and in perfect time, because today I’m sharing one of those aforementioned parties with you – Lo’s unicorn party!
Before I share the photos from what was actually a super adorable theme, I know what you’re thinking. What six year old asks for a unicorn party theme? My sisters and I have more in common than big baby blues my friends. And now for these fun shots from the party.
My favourite part about this party was the paper mache unicorn bust that served as a super fun backdrop, and doubled as some fun new decor for her bedroom. We used some pretty pastel crepe paper streamers and paired them with a translucent shimmery door fringe for the perfect backdrop.
The inspiration for Lo’s party came when she found some unicorn pinatas online (slash when she was spying on me browsing Instagram) so we had to incorporate a few of those for kids to take home. We added a candy bar for kids to snack on between dips in the pool, and topped it off with a pink and gold glittering cake.
I have to give a big shout out to my favourite lady Michelle from Big Ass Piñata, who despite an insane schedule this month managed to fit in the most gorgeous rainbow piñata. Lauren actually gasped when she saw it. It was such a hit, and now it’s sitting on a shelf in her room where she can stare at it all day. How stunning are these colours?
The party was such a hit, and Lo was absolutely thrilled – it was the perfect cap on a month full of ups and downs <3
