Ellia's Whimsical Unicorn Themed Mini Party


Unicorns. Confetti everywhere. A pretty palette with plenty of pink and purple. If someone had translated my idea of heaven as a little girl into a party, I'm pretty sure it would have looked just like this! This whimsical mini party celebrated photographer Natalie Spencer's little girl Ellia's six month milestone. It is absolutely bursting at the seams with fun and joy, and you'll find lots of cute ideas here for your own unicorn themed party. Natalie shared the details with us, so read on below, then stop by the full gallery for all of the photos!

From Natalie:

"Before Ellia was born while I was planning her nursery, I knew that I wanted to hand craft many elements and add a bunch of personal touches. The paper mache unicorn was one of the very first things I made. With Ellia's 6 months coming up, my sister Mercedes of Darling and Daisy and I knew that we wanted to style and host a mini celebration for my sweet daughter. We decided to center the party around her unicorn, which had been made with love for her months before she was born. With Spring finally starting to arrive, we decided to incorporate a bunch of pretty and bright flowers around our unicorn, sprinkles, handmade confetti and lots of love. We made brownies with cream cheese filing and covered them with frosting and tons of sprinkles, chewy chocolate chip cookies, doughnuts and a scrumptious truffle cake. I also printed out photos of Ellia, the most recent from her weekly photo shoot we have, and put them in mini cards to give to guests as a thank you. I am so thrilled we were able to celebrate my little darlings half birthday surrounded by prettiness and people we love."
