Lexi's Unicorn 5th Birthday Party

Every year I try and do something different for birthday parties...
one of these years I just know I'll run out..
especially now with two girls (what have i started?!)
good thing i love party planning!
we've done:
and now this year it was Unicorn Theme!

I usually browse on pinterest until I see something that sparks mine and hers interest..
I pinned a couple of unicorn party pics and she was sold.
and so was I.. so we went from there!

We had the party from 3-5 so I felt like I was totally ok with just serving treats..
the parents probably loved the fact that i only served sugary goods, whoops!
i probably ruined dinners.
Lexi's favorite part was the pinata,
mine was the photo booth.. for obvious reasons.
We played unicorn bingo, sprayed hair pink,
had a photo booth, did cake, then pinata, and goody bags!
I was worn out by the end of the night but as always I love having parties!

Lexi's Room {revised version}

It has been a couple of years since I decorated Lexi's room.
You can see what I started with here
that room even landed a 4 page spread in an Australian baby magazine here

I had it all finished when we were living in Idaho..
but with renting and moving into our new home
and a couple of years later
it's style has evolved since it was last photographed!
I decided to keep with the whimsical theme and her room is
honestly my favorite room in the house, and in my opinion
looks a thousands times prettier than my first take!
It is also the first room in our house that I can say is 97% done.
A room is never fully finished, am I right?!
(my husband hates that part :) )
