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.

Pastel Unicorns

What girl doesn't love unicorns? Get some ethereal inspiration from San Diego's Starry Eyed Events' gorgeous Elegant Pastel Unicorn Soiree gallery (because, you know, unicorns don't do parties. They do soirees, of course).

Want to keep young unicorn lovers busy? Try this DIY unicorn horn headband that is an absolute must for your little guests.
