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.

Trolls

They're colorful, they've got crazy hair, and they love singing, dancing, hugging, and cupcakes. Yep, everything about Trolls sounds like a party to us! Don't know where to start with the planning? This idea we spotted over at Soiree Event Design includes a Trolls Beauty Bar (the hair!), tie-dye cupcakes, and a fabulous Trolls candy and dessert bar.
