When my middle daughter turned 8, I threw her a “slumber under” pretend sleepover birthday party! Just like a lot of little girls, she’s crazy for unicorns and rainbows so that was the theme that inspired her rainbow unicorn party!
What is a Slumber Under, You Ask?
Since the girls weren’t quite old enough for real sleepovers yet, a slumber under or sleep under was the perfect way for them to feel like big girls, but also keep it to a daytime party! All the fun and less of the hassle of a sleepover.
How to Plan a Slumber Under?
We rented these amazing tents from a local company called WonderTents, which brings you everything you need to create a sleep over or sleep under of your own! They have different themes to choose from with decor for girls or boys! These indoor sleepover/under parties are the best for winter birthdays! I purchased additional rainbow and unicorn pillows to add that matched my rainbow color scheme!
The birthday girl and her pals all wore matching unicorn pajamas for all that “sleeping” that was going on!
Rainbow and Unicorn Party Decorations
These gorgeous ombre rainbow unicorn balloons were a focal highlight of the sleep under room! Behind the balloons, the mantel featured a DIY rainbow tassel garland that perfectly matched the party colors!
I designed matching party invitations that can be sent out via online invite companies or hard copy as well!
I fell in love with the tableware for the party! Doesn’t it make you happy just to look at? The rainbow plates and napkins are from Paper Party Boy and I paired them with iridescent unicorn plates and unicorn favor bags.
Check out these fondant cake topper decorations from Les Pop Sweets! They are definitely magical!
I also design the unicorn favor tags and each girl got a unicorn tote bag with her pajamas for the party!
To keep us on time, I created a slumber under schedule for each girl to have in her tent!
This rainbow and unicorn party was nothing short of magical! I hope I’ve inspired you to plan a party of your own, somewhere over the rainbow!
