WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)-It was a unicorn-themed birthday for Indiana Veterans Home resident Gilberta King, her 100th birthday that is.

King has lived at the Indiana Veterans Home since April of 1985.

Her century of life was celebrated Friday with rainbow cupcakes, brownies, sprinkles and balloons filling the room, along with her closest friends all wearing colorful unicorn horns.

A musician played live, very appropriately themed America songs.

The birthday girl enjoyed the party so much, she couldn't choose her favorite part.

"Did you like the unicorns?" "Yeah."
"Yeah?" "Good ones."
"Did you like the cake?" "Oh, yeah."
"Did it taste good?" "Yeah, nice one."

King received many gifts at today's party, including a plaque from Governor Eric Holcomb.
