Out & About : The Magical Unicorn party of the Butterfly Project
May 12, 2018 Be first to comment
If you have reading my blog for the past year, you might have stumbled upon the post Unboxing The Butterfly Project Birthday Party Box where I shared about all the amazing goodies we received from the 4th The Butterfly Project Birthday Party Bash. In a blink of an eye, a year have passed and we just celebrated the 5th Anniversary of The Butterfly Project!
As always, Tammy Lim, whom we fondly known as Mama-san have outdone herself with the planning and the execution of this latest bash which had a unicorn theme! Unicorn itself are already mythical, absolutely magical creatures so coupled with a pastel theme …. you can imagine how it was. If you cannot, let me bring you through the party.
The butterflies (how we are known as under the The Butterfly Project) came dressed in various unicorn themed outfits, adorned with the unicorn horns too! Even the make up done was done to the theme, with glitters and pastel hue. As for me, I went the easy route of getting a onesie ordered from Lazada because I have always wanted one but never had a reason to get it, but now there is! Kudos though to the rest of the butterflies who put so much effort into their dressing.
Upon registering, we each received a goodie bag which included products from various sponsors such as NYX Cosmetics, Dear Beaute’s Himawari Hair Care, Wanderlust Things, Koji Dolly Wink and belif Malaysia. More on that later one, let’s talk about the party first! The most important thing in this bag is a card which gives you access to the activities to complete at the event.
There are four stations where you can complete the various activities such as Photo Booth from GNG Studiobooth, customize a mini flower bouquet at Everyday Flowers’ flower bar, colouring an auto-inflate balloon from Brrrloon, and lastly we get to adopt a unicorn from 50GRAM!

Photobooths are now a staples at any event and parties which I feel is a one of the great way to immortalise the events. It gives guests a simple souvenirs to take home and remember the event/party by. This year, GNG Studiobooth have introduced a new service which Boomerang PhotoBox where a short video is taken and a Boomerang is then created! It’s innovative and definitely appeals to the crowd to be able to get a hi-quality videos too.
To match to the theme, a purple sparkling backdrop was used and on the photos, there was a customised border on the photos too! The customised border can be used to include any messages you’d like your guests to remember by. For the The Butterfly Project Birthday Party Bash, the team have used the pretty artwork of the party.

One of the most interesting activity we got to do was actually the colouring of an inflatable balloon. We were each handed out a seemingly ordinary flat balloon on a stick but this balloon is one that can magically inflate itself. How it works is just by giving the balloon a hard hit on a tiny pouch, within the insides of the balloon. Just like that, the balloon will magically inflate!
Of course, there is a science behind it which you can find out more by getting in touch with the team behind Brrrloon , or you may just find out how it works by stalking their site. As I mentioned, you can customised your balloon by colouring it in any colour that you fancy which makes this the perfect activity for both children and adults too!
In addition to this, Brrrloon also specialises in balloon decorations, alongside with customised design printed balloons! In fact, any balloons you see in the pictures are actually specially made to order for this party. Making them the perfect balloon provider if you’re looking for one that does pretty decorations and is customisable to your specific theme.

50Gram started out as a flower delivery company where they have gained traction over the years for creating beautiful bouquets, which comes with a complementary video messages. As the years go by, 50Gram have expanded their service offerings to include various add-on bundles. And as part of the activity at The Butterfly Project Birthday Party Bash, we got the chance to adopt our very own unicorn in the form of a very adorable unicorn mug.
To formalise the whole adoption, we even filled up the adoption card where we got to name the unicorn too, along with the date of the adoption too for memories sake. :p In all honesty, the mug looks more suitable for decoration rather to be drank from. You can check out the other offerings available by 50Gram from their website, do find the details below.

My favourite activity of the day would the flowers bouquet bar where you can choose from an assortment of flowers in vases to make into a simple bouquet. The bouquet is made by the team at Everyday Flower on the spot. How it works is that you basically choose three of your favourite flowers, placed them into the basket provided, write your name down and hand them over to the team!
The bouquet will be arranged and be ready within 5-10 minutes, depending on the queue. To be honest, this is the first time I have seen a flowers bouquet bar at a party as an activity for the guests. Similar to the photobooth activity, this is a very interactive, engaging and not to mention, unique experience. I’d never met a lady who doesn’t like flowers, so for me this is a really nice touch to the event especially when you can choose your own flowers.
I have always imagined how my dream wedding would be like and I may have just found the perfect booth activity for my future wedding guests. I believe this is a fairly new trend which I believe will catch on soon enough. So, if you have plans to include this in your event… I’d highly recommend that you do so as soon as possible!

Although we had two hours for the party, it felt like the time just flew by ever so quickly. Four activity booths, coupled with food and plenty opportunities to take pictures contributed to that, definitely! Just because the party ended, but the fun continues on with the goodie bag we received from the party which is filled with products from various sponsors. The bag that we received is specially ordered and came in the unicorn design –so cute! Here’s a breakdown on what the bag contains.
Dear Beaute (Japan) Himawari Hair Care Samples which are available at selected Watsons and Sasa Malaysia stores nationwide. Their hair care products are oil based products which are catered for ladies with different hair woes. Their wide variety of range would help to address at least, if not all of your concerns for your hair.
Next, there is the NYX Cosmetics Malaysia Vivid Brights & Lip of the Day, where the Vivid Brights product is actually an eyeliner of a bright purple shade. This shade would come in handy when you’re planning to attend another theme party. The Lip of the Day product on the other hand is actually a liquid liner with a metallic finish. What I loved about this product is the ability for it to be dual purpose, as it can also be worn as an eyeliner.
For me, I’d always felt that falsies have been able to complete the eyes make up. I have always been a fan of Koji Dolly Wink’s false eyelashes because of how subtle the effect really is without being too over dramatic. The designs of the lashes were distributed randomly, but I quite like the design on mind. There is a total of two sets in the package, which came along with the adhesive glue as well.
There is no secret that my current favourite beauty product now is by belif. So you can imagine my joy when I realise that among the goodies is the belif Malaysia Best Sellers On-The-Go travel kit! This kit contains all of their best products but in travel size. This also allows you to try their products before committing to a full sized product. From experience, it’s important to use samples for a while before committing to a whole bottle.
Last but not least is actually Unicorn Necklace from Wanderlust Things which are available from www.wanderlustthings.com, a curated website which the trendiest products you can find in the world wide web. Trust me when I say that because whatever you can think of or can’t think of, you’ll find it there. So do yourself a favour and check the site out!
