Sadie’s Rainbow Unicorn 5th Birthday Party

This post is sponsored by Oriental Trading Company, but please note all ideas and opinions are my own.

Sadie is a little girl who loves everything magical. And really, she find’s magic in everything! When we were deciding on the theme for her fifth birthday party she was focused on Moana for a little bit (You’re Welcome!) but ultimately decided on something she really LOVES – unicorns! So with the help of Oriental Trading, we put together a rainbow unicorn party!

Her birthday party with her friends was at a play place near our house. Sadie first went there for a classmate’s birthday party back in December and hasn’t stopped talking about it since – so it was the perfect place to have her party! We got there a little bit before her party began and killed some time practicing our model posing.

And Sadie showed Dave how to pose too – gave him some lessons.

Sadie’s friends started to arrive and soon enough they were released into the play space!

After the kids had run themselves ragged it was time for pizza and cake! One special part of Sadie’s party is that my grandfather came. He is going to be 94 this winter and unfortunately, his health started to deteriorate a bit this year. He is moving to an assisted living place next month and we haven’t seen him as much as we’re used to, so it was SO nice that he made it to Sadie’s party. He is her Pop Pop and she was so excited to see him.

A rainbow unicorn birthday needs a rainbow unicorn cake of course! The cake is from one of our favorite bakeries, Sweet Surrender Bake Shop! We’ve been getting Sadie’s cakes there for a couple of years now – the staff is wonderful and everything they make is delicious!

Before each guest left we have them their goodie bag! The place provided branded water bottles but we wanted to add something of our own so everyone got a unicorn ring and unicorn poop! (Everyone thought the unicorn poop was hysterical!)

After her party ended we ran back home to have family over. We celebrated with my side of the family at Passover and so we had Dave’s family and some other members of my family over after the party.

Now I would have used all of the awesome unicorn/rainbow decorations at Sadie’s kid’s party but the place wanted to charge a $50 fee or something ridiculous, and I’m not about that. So we used it at home!

Oriental Trading makes a great unicorn party pack, or you get can things a la carte. Since Sadie’s party place gave us invitations I chose to get things a la carte. We had tablecloths, centerpieces, plates and napkins! It was all incredibly festive. 🙂

At our party at home, each birthday buddy got to pick out the cake they wanted me to make. Dave got his favorite Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake and Sadie got a Unicorn Poke Cake that I saw on Lipgloss and Crayons. The Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake was DEVOURED. 🙂 A Rainbow Unicorn Party | Perks of Being a JAP | www.perksofbeingajap.com

It was a very hectic, but great day! Rainbows and unicorns for everyone!

  2. Oh my gosh, what a great party! So cute & I love the little lady’s poses, she cracks me up.

  3. I love everything about this (except for the stupid $50 surcharge to bring your own decorations. Lame.) Happy Birthday Sadie and Dave!
