Fun Entertainment Ideas for an Epic Fantasy Themed Party
Mermaids, unicorns and rainbows have been an indisputable trend in the last couple of years. You don’t need to attend a children’s party anymore to be surrounded by pink and purple pastel colours, tons of glitter and mermaid tails: millennials have chosen these mythical creatures as some of the symbols that represent them as a generation.
The meaning behind these popular fantasy themes appears to be closely related to the concept of positivity. The idea of the rainbow after the storm is connected to the need to always see the bright side of things and find the proverbial silver lining. Gorgeous white unicorns, captivating mermaids and other fantasy creatures are now also fun alternative themes that more and more brands and people are choosing for their parties.
If you’re ready to get immersed in a universe where unicorns fly and pots of gold are found at the end of the rainbow, then the below fun entertainment ideas will let your imagination wander!
Mermaids, Glitter and Unicorn Party Ideas and Other Fun Alternative Themes
Making unicorns the focus of your party will instantly make it fun, playful and shareable. Candy floss carts, delicious unicorn cakes and lots of white, pink, baby blue and purple decor elements will transform your event into the perfect fairytale. Other stunning unicorn party ideas include tasty cupcakes, beautiful flower walls - that you can customise with colours of your choice - or original balloon designs. Don’t forget to add a golden horn to any piece of decor!
Mermaids parties are made extra special with glimmering sequins all over the place! Decorative seashells, balloon designs and props with different tones of blue, purple and white are predominant in a fantasy theme party inspired by mermaids.
Pastel colours and mythical creatures are not the only elements fun alternative themes have in common, they also share the inclination for sparkly and multi-colour flakes: glitter! To ensure that your event (literally) shines, decorate your venue with not only props but glitter covered food and your guests' bodies and faces can be given a sparkly makeover.

Fun alternative themes can’t lack rainbows, stars and winged creatures
In a fantasy themed party with unicorns and mermaids as the focus, one of these creatures should make a special appearance at your party.
