9 Fun Ideas For A Unicorn Themed Baby Shower

I’m having my first baby girl! I went back and forth about whether or not to have a 3rd shower, but my last baby shower was 7 years ago and so many new people have come and gone in our lives since then, so yes, it was time to party!

Pinterest wasn’t really around back then, so I was excited to do a fun and super detailed UNICORN themed baby shower! With all of the beautiful pastel colors, the entire affair couldn’t BE more girly!

The shower was a huge success thanks to my best friends and family. If you are looking to plan a unicorn themed baby shower here are some fun ideas for your event!

9 Fun Ideas For A Unicorn Themed Baby Shower

Looking to do a fun girly themed shower? Check out these 9 Fun Ideas For A Unicorn Themed Baby Shower

Mason Jar Centerpieces

When my girlfriend said that she had the centerpieces covered, I didn’t even blink. You know when you have one of those creative people in your life that you know you can TRUST? That’s her. I absolutely adore these mason jar unicorn centerpieces. You can make this or something similar that looks perfect in the center of any table!

DIY Unicorn Photo Frame

Do it for the gram right? I made this DIY Photo Frame with lots of help from youtube. There wasn’t a specific tutorial but I took inspiration from may videos and came up with this! I used my silhouette to cut the letters, ears, horn and eyelashes from vinyl. I also made the paper flowers (for the first time) and that came out better than I imagined! if you have any specific questions about the frame let me know!

Unicorn Photo Props

Party City sells Unicorn photo props that went perfectly with the photo frame! Of course we forgot to put them out so, no pictures! 🙁 But still a really good idea!

Unicorn Themed Games

On Etsy, they sell easy printable unicorn game packages. This saves a LOT of time figuring out things for your guests to do. The ones we chose were Gift Bingo, The Price Is Right, Who Knows Mommy Best & Best Wishes For Baby. Each of these games were designed perfectly to match the colors and design of the unicorn theme.

Rose in sparkly glasses

Keeping with the very pink and girly theme, my host purchased 2 bottles of sparkling rose that went well with these sparkly disposable wine glasses.

Unicorn Custom Invitations

Etsy has a fantastic collection of Unicorn themed invitations that you can either print, or have them print for you. There are several different color schemes that range from light pastel and super flowery to darker colored flowers. Make sure you stay consistent with your colors to keep a cohesive look.

Unicorn themed Activity Stations

In addition to the games, I wanted the guests to be busy and flex their creative muscles. So we had a onesie station as well as a headband station. We got $1 frames from Dollar tree, purchased and printed out Unicorn themed signs for the activity stations. It was so simple but cute!

Unicorn Themed Sweet Treats

Is there anything better than a Unicorn cake? Nope! We got a beautiful statement cake from one of my friends who is a baker and made sure to include cupcakes and cake pops. My friend brought the gorgeous gold glittery table cloth, and I purchased the really pretty gold glitter cake stand from Amazon and it all came together beautifully.

Unicorn Themes Water Bottle Stickers

On Etsy, I also purchased customized water bottle covers which I printed on sticker paper and applied to the water bottles. It was a small detail that just added to the overall theme!

I couldn't love this more. I had a girl first, and it was before the unicorn craze, and I had no idea what I was doing. With my sister, who had a girl second, we had SO much fun with her shower. We did with her first shower planning too, but then Parker came two months early and was born during her shower. It wasn't the same so we did it UP for her second.

Seeing as we are all about the unicorns here (my girls can't get enough of them), I love the idea of a unicorn themed baby shower. Almost makes me want to have another girl myself to get a do-over shower wise! But seriously what a great theme and you nailed it with the props for this ultimate unicorn theme :)
