Unicorn Birthday Party Food Ideas

And party food is what most people get excited for. {Not me, I'm more of a decorations kind of a girl!} But the food table is without a doubt the best place for a focal point.

I love how Kadie created this backdrop over her kitchen island to hide her cabinets. Hang a simple white tablecloth and and iridescent fringe curtain from the ceiling and viola! Like magic the rest of the kitchen disappears.

Unicorn Birthday Party Cake

This unicorn cake is perfect and the best part is our party mama decorated it herself! Buy a simple cake from a grocery store bakery and embellish it yourself with this cake topper.

With so many other treats the cake doesn't even have to be real. Decorated faux cakes are a great option for a focal point when you don't need {or want} any more sugar. Then display it proudly on a sparkly gold cake plate!
