Unicorns might not be your first thought when you think baby shower, right? Sure, you’d expect them at a party for a little girl, but why is a unicorn theme so perfect for a baby shower party? Well, because a baby shower is all about gathering friends and family to celebrate with the expectant mum. It’s about the wonder of pregnancy and spreading joy and best wishes for the baby. Basically, it’s about MAGIC! And that’s exactly what unicorns represent: magic, but also purity, freedom and innocence! All of which are perfect for a magical baby shower! So, to recreate this adorable unicorn baby shower for yourself, you’re going to need some unicorn baby shower decorations, and that’s where we come in!

Unicorns like bold and bright, but sometimes colour needs to be a little understated, too. After all, unicorns are bright enough as it is without their surroundings rivalling them! So, why not take these amazing pastel colour latex balloons and use them to decorate your party venue? Feeling brave? Then create your very own pastel rainbow arch to help make an already special event even more impressive! Think of the pictures and the joy on everyone’s face when they see it!
4. Rainbow Confetti Balloon
Confetti says ‘Hey, we’re here to celebrate something’, rainbows say ‘unicorns, colour, fun, and laughter’, and balloons say ‘let’s parrrrttaaayyy!’. Put it together and what have you got? The perfect unicorn baby shower decorations, that’s what you’ve got! The multicoloured confetti through the clear latex balloon is lovely, and seeing the light shine through the balloons and onto the bright confetti makes it feel like you’ve been whisked away into a magical kingdom with unicorns, rainbows, and, most importantly, love!
5. Baby Unicorn Foil Balloon
A perfect touch to a unicorn baby shower is a unicorn baby balloon, obviously. This bright coloured 8 pack means you can hang them all over the venue, and they’re the perfect decorations because it combines the magic of unicorns and the wonder of babies to capture the entire theme in just one simple balloon. The stylised unicorn, adorable hair, horn, and hooves, and the sheer amount of colours make this balloon set a must when your decorating the baby shower venue!
6. Unicorn Dream Catcher
Dream catchers are great because they’re a symbol of protection, so what could be more appropriate at a baby shower? This unicorn dream catcher is the perfect way to wish mother and baby all the protection, love, and happy dreams in the world! Bad dreams are captured by the dream catcher and sent away, whilst the web catches the good dreams and lets them slide down the multi-coloured feathers to the person below them. Today is all about magic and dreams, so this decoration is perfect!
7. Rainbow Baby Shower Banner
There’s a lot of colour already packed into the unicorn baby shower decorations so far, and yes, you’d expect that at a unicorn themed baby shower. But, sometimes a break in all the colour and distractions can be the perfect way to centre everybody and remind them why they’re all there. This simple baby shower banner with just three small rainbows on a brown background is perfect. Why? It still ties in with the theme, but it makes the baby the main focus, which, after all, they are!
8. Baby Unicorn Lantern
That was a nice little moment of peace there, wasn’t it? Well, that’s out the window now and we’re back to more is more! This baby unicorn lantern is ADORABLE! The cartoon unicorn, the bright pink rainbow hair, the blue sky with beautiful pink and yellow stars, it has everything you could need! Hanging this in the party venue adds another interesting element for your guests to look at and admire, and the extra colour is always appreciated at a baby shower!
9. Artificial Rainbow Roses
Artificial roses are great, but artificial rainbow roses – that’s next level! These are beautiful because they bring the rainbow colour theme to life again, but in a slightly more subtle way. The artificial silk roses add a touch of elegance to the party, which we know mum will certainly appreciate, and these will look great in the middle of a table placed in a simple, clear vase. The roses themselves have an almost tie-dye effect too, which is really fashionable right now and perfect at a baby shower!
10. Unicorn Table Centerpiece
A unicorn themed baby shower needs a unicorn themed table centrepiece. But remember when we said more is more? We meant MORE IS MORE, in every possible sense of the words. Why have one unicorn table centrepiece when you can have 9?! This unicorn table centrepiece pack has 9 different designs ranging from different stylised unicorns to rainbows and every one is bursting with colour, fun, and magic! They’re the perfect decorations to take centre stage at the table for the special day!
11. Rainbow Table Skirt
Speaking of tables, you’re going to have a dessert table, right? The most fun you can have at a baby shower is at the dessert table! But as wonderful as the themed cakes, cookies, and biscuits are, the way it’s decorated is important, too! This rainbow table skirt is really simple, but stunning. The pastel blues, oranges, and pinks work together to create a magical table skirt that just makes everything feel more special. If mum and baby can’t be made to feel extra special at the baby shower, then when can they?
12. Unicorn Baby Face Tableware
Since you’re going to the trouble of decorating the dessert table, you might as well tie your tableware into the theme too! These unicorn baby face tableware plates are adorable! The cute face, the simple white head, the golden rainbow unicorn horn – all of it just feels really special. You get 8 in a pack too, so depending on how many guests you’ve got this can be a really inexpensive way of making something as simple as snacking on the food at the event feel a little more magical!
13. Stars and Unicorn Luncheon Napkins
Actually, whilst you’re at it, don’t forget these stunning stars and unicorn luncheon napkins! The dark purple background allows the white and pink unicorn with sparkling horn to really pop! The bright stars are another great touch and the pastel coloured unicorn mane is adorable too! The key to success at a baby shower is to make sure the theme is carried throughout, so there’s no mistaking the message. You might not think a unicorn napkin reminds your guests about the blessing of your baby, but trust us, they do!
14. Unicorn Baby Shower Cake Topper
Of course, mum and baby deserve a cake! A celebration isn’t really a celebration without cake – any unicorn can tell you that. If you’re skilled at baking, then a simple white unicorn cake decorated with blobs of pastel flowers to create a flowing mane is perfect. But, to top it all off you’ll need to buy a unicorn baby shower cake topper that lets everyone know that this cake is unmistakably a unicorn. The golden horn, white and gold ears, and closed unicorn eyes make it obvious, and your cake will look incredible.
15. LED Unicorn Light
We couldn’t get to the end of a unicorn themed baby shower without including lighting in our unicorn baby shower decorations. Of course, this LED unicorn light had to be multicoloured, but it isn’t incredibly bright or in your face. The simple pink, purple, and peach design of the unicorn light itself is gorgeous, and the rainbow LEDs are just a lovely extra touch to make the light even more special. Until you can welcome the light of your little one into your life, we think this LED unicorn will do just fine!
