If you have a daughter then unicorns may have been a part of your family life for a while now.

I know my daughter loved horses when she was little and therefore loved unicorns just as much.

But, for the past few months, unicorns have really become a thing in children's room decor, treats and well... even drinks too... IE... the Starbucks' unicorn frappuccino. 

Today I thought I would share in the unicorn excitement with some fun unicorn birthday party ideas that I am loving.

Unicorn Birthday Party Ideas for Boys

Who says that unicorn magic is just for little girls? Boys can get in on the magical fun too.

However, It can be tricky to find party decor that caters to little boys but we have you covered with some fun ideas below.

Think Color Theme: If your kiddo wants to use the rainbow theme then great, go for it, but some more color themes could be blue, glue, or galaxy.

For girls, eyelash unicorn designs are always a hit but the sunglasses version of the unicorn has become increasingly popular and great for a boyish twist. This design would work great for all sorts of ideas, favors, cakes, etc.
