Summer birthday bashes have gone the way of flamingo fare, pineapple parties, and cacti celebrations. With fall now in the air, we’ve gathered the party themes that are heating up! Whether it’s LEGO NINJAGO character masks or a jump-party hookup, flip through for the trends of the season that are sure to carry us through the school year. And, yes, there’s unicorn cake.

Go Fly a Kite 

Our future film fave, Mary Poppins Returns, won’t be out for another year, but we’re already seeing the spoon-full-of-sugar theme popp-ing up. So gather your umbrellas, don a chimney sweep cap, and get a jump on the trend over on Catch My Party. (And if you want a DIY mini Mary costume we nearly can’t handle, Saroy has you covered.)
