ana's magical unicorn party // petaluma event photographer


Ana’s big 30th birthday party was the birthday party to be at: bomb tacos and drinks, a piñata, coloring in your unicorn on the table, a fabulous unicorn cake, fun party bags and favors, wearing unicorn headbands, mini-unicorn pinatas as decor, games, loud music, and wonderful weather (despite the crayons melting on the tables). One of the most amazing things at her party was that she made a lot of the decor and desserts herself!! She put in so much effort into making sure her party was gonna be fun and memorable: she crafted the headbands, the mini-unicorn pinatas on the table, the little sparkly pompoms next to the mini-unicorn pinatas, most of the desserts on the table (except for the unicorn cake), the party favor bags, even the photo backdrop with the “#BDAY” balloons! 🎈

I really had so much fun at this party, especially photographing all the details! Ana, thank you so much for throwing a bomb party 😘.

Ana’s inspiration for her unicorn birthday party: When I was little, my mother loved unicorns. She would buy anything with a unicorn on it. Now, I love unicorns, mostly because they remind me of my mom. When I was kid, my mom threw me the BEST birthday parties. She would get me an elaborate cake and always made the best party bags. I thought about and realized that just because I wasn't a kid anymore, it doesn't mean I couldn’t party like one. For my 30th, which I feel like is a big milestone, I wanted to have a "kids" party. I wanted party bags, an awesome cake, party favors and a piñata! And what better theme than unicorns?!?! 🦄🦄🦄

I love looking back at these photos! They remind me of all the hard work I put into my party and how much fun I had.


I love reliving the fun times and appreciating all of the people who came to celebrate my 30th with me. These photos mean so much to me, and I'm super thankful I have them to look at everyday!


It was super fun to have the piñata at my party! And, of course, all of the drinking that happened 🍻 —Ana
