Tissue Paper Cones (Lollipop Holders)
Tissue Paper Cone Lollipop Holders from Be A Unicorn Birthday Party | Black Twine | Cherry Blossom Events

Ingredients

  • Styrofoam cones
  • Colored tissue paper
  • Hot glue gun

Directions

  1. For each color of tissue paper, cut enough strips (which will create the fringe) to cover the entire styrofoam cone.
  2. On each styrofoam cone, use the hot glue gun to create layers of “fringe”.  We recommend starting at the bottom (widest part) of the the cone and adding layers as you move up the cone.
  3. Let the glue dry for a few minutes.
  4. Stick 4-6 lollipops into each tissue paper cone, spreading them around evenly on the top section of the cone.
  5. Set out the tissue paper cones on the dessert table for guests to enjoy!
Magical Ice Cream Cones

Ingredients

  • Sugar Cones
  • Pink frosting
  • Edible glitter

Directions

  1. Melt the pink frosting in a bowl.
  2. Dip the open end of the ice cream cone into the melted pink frosting (about 1-2 inches).
  3. While the pink frosting is still wet, dip the edge of the cone into the edible glitter.
  4. Let the frosting and glitter dry on the cones for a couple of hours.
  5. Set out the magical ice cream cones on the dessert table to be used with ice cream as a sweet treat!

Unicorn Mix

Ingredients

  • Bugle Horn Chips
  • Lucky Charms

Directions

  1. Toss ingredients together in a serving plate or bowl.
  2. Enjoy!

Additional Tip

For the food & beverage offering, we recommend the Unicorn Cake and cupcakes (from your local bakery), Magical Unicorn Food (see recipe above), Magical Ice Cream Cones (see DIY instructions above) paired with 2-3 of your favorite ice cream flavors, and bottled pink lemonade such as Fentiman’s Rose Lemonade.

Styling tips

Cherry Blossom Events shares top tips for pulling off your event.

Tip 1

We love the look of layering brightly colored garlands for the dessert table backdrop (use washi tape to adhere to the wall).

Tip 2

We recommend using a textured tablecloth for your dessert table.

Tip 3

If you have the time, we love adding at least DIY element to the party decor, such as the tissue paper cones that held the rainbow lollipops.

Tip 4

Unicorn horns are a must — and the perfect party favor for this rainbow unicorn party!

Tip 5

Use cute cupcake toppers to decorate store-bought cupcakes — keep it simple, you can’t make everything!

Tip 6

The rainbow floral arrangements were the star of the kid’s table. Show this image to your local florist and request that s/he create an ombre rainbow effect.
