Daphnie's Magical Unicorn Birthday Pool Party

One of my many hobbies is party planning! I get to do it once a year for Daphnie's birthday and we have so much fun doing it! This year the theme was Unicorns, which are all the rage at the moment. I love how everything turned out! 

Daphnie's Outfit:
As soon as I saw this dress launch on Joyfolie's site (here) I knew it was going to be perfect for her party, and for every day for the rest of the summer pretty much! The fabric is amazing, so soft and comfortable. Perfect for warm summer days! Buy it here: Joyfolie

The Cake:
I learned a LOT making this cake. This is round 2; I made a practice cake for her actual birthday. The decorations on the first one were better, but cake/smoothing was better on this if I could just put everything I learned when making each together, I might actually have a pretty decent cake! 
Since I am absolutely horrible at fondant, I tried my hand at buttercream smoothing, this one turned out really well and I really like it! I will definitely be trying it out again. Let me know in the comments if you would like a tutorial on the Unicorn cake?

The Favors:
We decided on these adorable edible favors, you can find out a tutorial on exactly what I used and how to make them here: Unicorn Sugar Cookies

Birthday SURPRISE from #FLOATY!
Daphnie was surprised to get her very own Unicorn Floaty! How adorable is this float!? She also got two of the small Unicorn Floats for your drinks. These floats are such great quality! I have seen other brands that look the same but use a much cheaper material. #Floaty uses a thicker, more durable material that can withstand all of the attention that the float will get! Check them out here: #Floaty

Daphnie's Swimsuit from Stella Cove:
We absolutely LOVE Stella Cove suits. Daphnie has quite a few of them and loves wearing them. They are so cute and really great quality! This one is absolutely perfect for the occasion! You can find it here: Stella Cove

These would make a perfect stocking stuffer for any special lady in your life! I would wear these and I know Daphnie would! 2. Lavish Faux Fur Throw with Pom Poms I am a sucker for a good cozy blanket and this one looks perfect for cuddling on the couch and watching Christmas movies, and it will add to the room decor when not in use with those adorable poms! 3. Plush Genuine Shearling Ugg Slipper Another obsession of mine...Ugg. I know. I used to be one of those people that would call them 'Uggly' but then I put my feet into a pair and the hallelujah chorus rang me...they are worth it. These slippers look so cozy like my feet could crawl in there and hibernate for the winter. 4. Rose Cocktail Gummy Bears This little tin combines two of my favorite things...Rosé and Gummy Bears.
