We started by hanging large plastic door curtains that have fringes on them in various sparkly colors to use as the party backdrop. You may want to go with an iridescent one so that it will tie in with whatever other colors you may choose to use for your party theme. All of these decorations can easily be found for cheap and there are so many variations for how you can set it up, you really can do whatever your little heart desires.


We chose to dress up our party with hanging paper fans in various colors and sizes. For our party we found that pink and gold looked really good together. We also hung some pink and white-fringed banners off the front of our desert table and then added a little pop of gold with a shiny gold garland.

Every party is going to need a table to put treats, drinks, cakes or presents on, so we always set up a table and decorate it because it adds so much to the party ambiance. And, the table pretty much makes up the bulk of your decorating too so its win-win. You can just throw up a folded table (or use your kitchen table) throw a cheap white table cloth over it and then hang garlands or banners off the front in pinks, golds, yellows or whatever other color you’d like.

For the treats and desserts we had a cute llamacorn cake made and it came with llamacorn cupcakes that we put on cupcake stands and pretty much made the centerpiece for our table. We kept it pretty simple, we had sparkling pink lemonade for drinks (pink lemonade and sprite or seven up mixed in), the cakes and cupcakes and then we decorated different glass candy jars with other colorful candies. Really it was more about adding more color and fun to the party and less about actually eating the candy. However, it was a total win, because what kid doesn’t like eating candy?

If you are looking for games to play at your party, there are some great free llamacorn printable for llamacorn bingo. It’s another great way to use your candy. They can use the candy to mark their bingo cards as you play. If you have younger kids you can play llamacorn matching where you print out a bunch of different llamacorn pictures and lay them face down and make the kids take turns trying to match the cards. If they get a match they get to keep the cards, if not, they turn them back down and it’s the next players turn. You can come up any number of fun games to play. Perhaps you want to play pin the tail on the llamacorn or llamacorn musical chairs. Take any classic game and just put your own llamacorn twist to it and it’s sure to be a hit.

    This unicorn craze at the moment is definitely starting to take a turn in other directions. I haven’t heard of a llamacorn yet, well not until reading about it here. He looks like an amazing creature, and I am sure many people will fall in love with him.

    I can’t help wondering where this craze will lead us next. Maybe we will see elephacorns, girarificorns or even mousecorns crawl out of the woodwork. Who knows? I have already seen a unicow been circulated amongst the children I teach.

      Hello Michel, and yes we have seen unicorn horns panted on all sorts of animals, for some reason the llamacorn seems to have really stuck and is starting to take off compared to other animals. We will definitely be on the lookout for whatever animal gets some unicorn love next.

    I must confess, this is the first time I’ll be hearing about a “llamacorn”, there’s not a time that I visit your website and don’t learn a thing or two. Llamacorns are also wonderful magical creatures too, I have a good grip on their cuteness and how one can cuddle them.

    So many reasons for why they are seen as friends and not foes. Thanks for this write-up.
