Tired of the same old bounce house and birthday cake routine? Go out on a party-throwing limb this year and do something new for your kiddo’s big day. Whether it’s dueling with lightsabers for a Rogue One party or putting on crazy hair to hang with the Trolls, here’s what’s sure to be hot (and what’s just plain fun) in kids birthday parties for 2017.

Rainbows And Unicorns

Speaking of unicorns, this Rainbows and Unicorns party from Maggie at Sandy Toes Photography is perfect for kids (and parents) who want something bright and cheery for the big day. Magical snacks include chocolate dipped pretzels dipped in rainbow sugar, rainbow lollipops, and rainbow chocolate covered Oreos. And, young guests will love adopting their own pony at the party's end.
