Claire's Unicorn Pool Party

Last week we celebrated Claire's 10th Birthday with a Unicorn Slime & Pool Party!
Evite had the cutest Unicorn invite, so I used that because...easy & cute! Done!

Claire loves unicorns, so she decided on this theme earlier this year!

Unicorns are really popular right now, so there were tons of options for decorations, we went with gold & pastels.
 In my kitchen, I had the appetizers & dessert table set up:
 The pastel & gold theme was fun to do.

Pom Poms & Garland leftover from Kate's Painting Party:

The center island had the appetizers on it.
I had Veggies & Hummus:
And, this cute print behind it. It's from HERE.

I had Unicorn Horns...aka Bugles.
And Unicorn Food.....aka Kettle Corn.

View from the other direction:

One of my favorite parts of the party....the Dessert Table!

Behind the table I had a banner & balloons!

 Here is what we had on the dessert table.
Fruit Puffs:
Unicorn Poop (Claire's name for the cupcakes. LOL!)
I got the toppers HERE:
Puffy Clouds:
Unicorn Horns:
I got the toppers here.

Claire loves candy, so we had to add some Mike & Ikes which she wanted to name Unicorn hair :)
Close up of the plates...got them here.
And, the highlight of the Dessert Table...the cake!
My mother in law makes the cakes for my kids parties!
I loved the detials on the top:
Isn't my mother in law so talented?
She made the horn & ears out of fondant.
A very happy Claire in front of her dessert table!
I had the drink & food station set up at the outdoor bar.
Unicorn Fruit Punch & Unicorn Lemonade:
Leftover straws from another party that fit the color scheme :)
The menu was very simple....and what Claire wanted. 
Pizza:
Pepperoni & Cheese.
Watermelon:
That's it! Super easy menu!
 Because her birthday is in early September the weather is still warm, so we always have a pool party. This year Claire also wanted to make slime at her party, so we did that as well.
I had a slime station set up on the grass.
I had all the supplies lined up:
Kate & Claire set up the slime station :)
Glitter glue (here & here), food dye (here & here), plastic containers (here), glitter (here)
Glue (here) and Starch (here)
I found this cute printable HERE.
The girls loved figuring out their Unicorn Name & that's what most of them wrote on the top of their slime container. It was cute.

One excited Unicorn!
The girls had so much fun making slime!
There were 18 girls at the party, so we had 4-5 girls make slime at a time.
The slime turned out awesome! Look how gorgeous!
The recipe we used was:
1/2 cup of glue
 1/4 cup of Sta Flo Starch
1/2 cup water
Add any mix ins you want...food coloring, glitter, etc.
The slime turned out PERFECT!!

Each girl made 1 batch of slime and it fit perfectly in the containers I got them.
Some of the girls put unicorn toppers on their slime & wanted me to take a photo of it....of course!!!

The girls also swam...it was a perfect evening for swimming...85 degrees out!
Time for cake!
A very happy Claire.
Can't believe she is TEN!!!!
My mother in law surprised us....look at the inside of the cake:
Beautiful!
For favors the girls got their container of slime that they made and cookies (of course!)

I always do cookies as favors because it's easy & who doesn't love a cute cookie?
I got these cookies HERE.
I got 2 cute printables and put them in frames on the favor table.
Thank you for making my party magical:

We had such a fun time celebrating Claire's 10th birthday.
When the parents came to pick up there kids, a lot of them stayed and we had a little after party since it was a Friday night. I told the girls they could use up all the slime materials...and that kept them busy for another 1.5 hours....look at the slime table at the end of the night:

It was hysterical. They used everything...and our backyard...especially the grass area was a hot mess.
Kevin and I spent over an hour that night cleaning up our backyard and spraying down the patio & our outdoor furniture since there was slime everywhere.
It was hysterical...while we were cleaning it up, we were reminiscing about Claire's Cowgirl Party and all of the hay that was in our backyard & pool for months and months after the party. LOL.

 Slime is the worst, but they had SO much fun making it.
Claire loves slime & I rarely ever let them make it at home because it's such a mess, but I am so glad I let them make it at the party despite the mess.
You only turn double digits once :)
 I will never forget Claire's Unicorn Party...I will always think of the Slime :)

  2. Thank you for the slime recipe! My kids have been begging to make slime and I wanted to find one that works and that doesn't use Borax.
