We often are so inspired by the amazing ideas that so many of our clients come up with, that we have decided to start blogging about them to give other moms ideas of what they can do at their party. This post we are going to highlight a unicorn themed birthday party that we did in Waterloo, Ontario.
This Waterloo, Ontario mom went all out for her 7 year old daughter's birthday party. They came up with the idea to do a unicorn party when they saw what a hit the Starbucks unicorn frappe was with her daughter and her friends. They decided that they wanted to do a party using the colours of the frappe and they went all out.
They asked us to bring only teal and pink beads as well as unicorn charms to go with their theme, we were thrilled with how they bracelets turned out.
The mom also made unicorn bark using only 3 ingredients and it looked so pretty, here is how to make unicorn bark. She also had beautiful pastel cupcakes and made unicorn frappes. here is the unicorn frappe recipe.
It was such a fun party and we were so happy to be a part of it!
In ten years of providing jewelry making birthday parties, we have been to many dance themed birthday parties. This is no surprise since many of our little beaders dance and often invite their whole dance group to their birthday parties.
When doing a dance themed party the first thing you do is design your invitation. There are so many beautiful dance invitations, but the tulle invitations are our favourite, and here is a video showing you how to make it.
The decor for a dance and/or ballet themed party is so beautiful. Lots of pink tulle, gold sparkles, and ballet dancer cutouts. You can make pink tulle table skirts and chair covers to make the party even more magical.
Food at a dance and/or ballet themed party is all pink and cream with gold accents. Pink cupcakes with gold sprinkles, pink macaroons, parfaits, white bread with pink cream cheese, and pink lemonade.
Activities for your dance themed party can include musical chairs, hot potato, or freeze dance to ballet music, making bracelets using pinks and creams with a dance charm. Decorating your down dance bag, or the girls can create their own dance and preform it at the end of the party.
We hope we inspired you with our dance party ideas. Comment with any ideas of your own. Have a great party!
One of our favourite party themes ever is a unicorn party theme. We adore all the beautiful magical colours and how much fun you can have with this magical theme.
A mom booking a beading party was doing a unicorn theme and asked us if we could design a custom beading project for her party, of course we said yes, and we were thrilled with how it turned out and wanted to share this awesome party theme with you!
This is such an easy theme to choose invites for because there are so many beautiful unicorn invitations to choose from. You can also download a printable invitation online such as this one.
We adore the colour scheme that you would use for this party. All pastel colours, such as pastel blue, pastel pink, pastel purple, pastel pink, pastel green and pastel yellow. You would also use gold and gold glitter.
Blow up balloons in pastal colours and blow up clear balloons and fill them with glitter see here for instructions.
Hang up dreamcatchers in pastel colours, you can make these yourself, like this beautiful one from Kara's party ideas.
You can also make your own garland like this one in pastel colours to match your theme.
For a unicorn party you want the food to look as beautiful as possible and in pastel colours, such as marshmallows, chocolate covered pretzels, and unicorn bark (click here for recipe).
When making your cake or cupcake, make the inside of the cake rainbow, this is such a fun surprise for the guests. When making the cake or cupcakes, use pastel colours and lots of gold glitter.
This party is all about magical fun. Hand out unicorn horns to all of the guests to wear during the party. Have them decorate ice cream cones with icing and sprinkles to make their own unicorn themed treat. You can also play pin the horn on the unicorn and have a unicorn pinata. Another fun idea is to have the girls make jewelry with a unicorn charm. For more information about our fancy bracelet birthday party packages.
We hope that you have as much fun planning your unicorn themed birthday party as we had doing this post.
When we book our birthday parties, moms often ask us for tips for planning their jewelry making birthday party. One of our favourite suggestions is for the mom to make a jewelry box birthday cake. Here is the perfect jewelry box cake recipe.

We are in the midst of planning my six year old daughter's birthday party. Since I am in the children's birthday party entertainment industry, I always feel that we need to come up with something unique and original as well as incorporate some beading fun for all of my daughter's friends. This year I am also in charge of planning a shower for a very special sister, so I thought why not have a Breakfast at Tiffanys themed birthday shower and bridal shower on two separate mornings but using all the same ideas.
The main reason I love the idea of Breakfast at Tiffanys as a party theme is because it can be done earlier in the day when everyone is rested and full of energy, and you can serve brunch foods which are so much fun and a nice change from the pizza served at most parties.
This is such an easy party to decorate for. Use the Tiffany blue colour as your main colour scheme. Tie balloons to the backs of all of the chairs to make them look like pearls and beads. Decorate with strands of pearls. Make signs using the guests of honour's name, such as "Chloe & Co.". Place white bows on the backs of chairs. For more decor ideas, visit our pinterest page.
This party theme is perfect for a brunch menu. A fun idea that both kids are adults are sure to love is a DIY crepe station. For the perfect crepe station check out this post. For any cakes, cupcakes or desserts use the Tiffany blue colour and decorate with candy pearl edible beads. To drink, serve mimosas for the adults, and sparking orange juice for the children.
Both children and adults love to dress up. Ask guests to wear their favourite little back dress and pearls. If you are making loot bags and party favours, include a strand of glass pearls, sunglasses or gloves to go with the theme of the event.
Since pearls are synonymous with this theme, guests can make their own glass pearl necklaces, check out our amazing diy glass pearl necklace kits.

Lately we have noticed a large trend in Shopkins themed birthday parties, and we think it's such a fun theme and goes perfectly with a beading birthday party.
Here is how to have an amazing Shopkins themed beading birthday party.
First you need some Shopkins themed party invitations. A great way to make invitations is to use a free online printable or template to create a custom Shopkins birthday party invite. Here is a sample of a fun and easy template.
Once the invites are sent out it is time to start planning your party decor. Use lots of bright colours. Use online printables to print out large Shopkins characters or banners with Shopkins characters on them. Using marker, add faces to popcorn cups to make your own Poppy Corn.
A fun idea of what to do at your party is to make Shopkins themed bff necklaces. Here is a link showing you how to make these necklaces. You can add this charm to any of our amazing birthday party packages.
Another fun game is to play Shopkins trivia or provide Shopkins colour pages. Visit shopkinsworld.com for great printables.
Make your own Shopkins themed pinata and fill it with candy and Shopkins.
When choosing your cake, be sure to include Shopkins in the theme, the guests will be thrilled to receive their own Shopkins. An easy and fun idea is to frost cupcakes in your favourite bright colours and then place a Shopkin on top of each cupcake.
We hope you find our Shopkins birthday party tips helpful!
We've noticed an increasing trend in parents waiting until they give birth to find out the gender of their baby. This can make baby shower planning more difficult because you cannot use the traditional shower decorating themes of pink and blue.
Nancy, from Just the Facts Baby, suggests that a glamorous, glitzy and fun alternative gender neutral shower decor theme is gold and cream. She has compiled five photos of gold and cream parties that we think are the perfect inspiration when planning a gender neutral shower.
With such a fabulous theme, we suggest that a fun baby shower activity where guests can make their own party favour is to have a jewelry making station. We can customize their jewelry making kits to go with each shower theme, for a cream and gold themed party, guests can make beautiful cream and gold jewelry.

Birthday cakes are a huge part of any birthday party.
When moms book a jewellery making birthday party with us, they usually ask us for cake suggestions.
Over the years we have seen so many great cake ideas that we love to share and we love to see our ideas turned into stunning cakes when we arrive at the party.
One of our favourite cake ideas is a jewellery box birthday cake. This cake is so easy to make, and can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose.
All you do is to bake (or buy) two square cakes, and then lay one down, and place the other one behind it standing up. Then decorate it with icing, and put on all of your accessories, such as candy necklaces, candy bracelets, ringpops, and candy to look like beads.
Another fun idea is to make cupcakes, frost them in a colour to match the theme of your party (such as blue and purple icing for a mermaid party).
Place candy rings or real rings on top of each cupcake as a decoration.
Children just love this and cupcakes are such an easy alternative to a cake, you can just hand them out without the hassle of cutting a cake.
We have many other fun cake ideas on our pinterest board, click here to see all of our wonderful cake ideas.
