BellaGrey Designs: Dino ROAR Party ~ Real Party

Dino ROAR Party ~ Real Party



I'm so excited to share my son's birthday party! This year, my son decided he wanted a Dinosaur birthday party. I was perfectly fine with that idea, since I had some ideas of what I wanted to do for this theme.
We went with a more classic look for our party suite and used colored silhouettes for all of our dinosaurs. From the moment you came to the door from the moment you left you knew you were at a Dinosaur party! We greeted our guests with a fun full color photo of the backdrop from the dessert table and took it from there. 


Brandy, of Perfect Moment Photography, captured the party as well as all the party elements perfectly!
The party theme was set with our T-Rex Dinosaur invitations.

 
The volcano cake was a huge hit with both the kids and parents. Shelley, of Margie Lou's Sweets did a fabulous job as always. The skeleton cookies she designed also went rather quickly. We placed the cake on a clear glass cake stand so everyone could see the colors run down the side as it "erupted". We love the expressions Brandy of Perfect Moment Photography, captured when the volcano was about to "erupt".


 We incorporated the colors of orange, lime and grey throughout the entire party.
We added dinosaurs to the dessert table to make them look like they were "walking" among all the goodies and to provide that extra element. We used a wooden box to hold all the "fossil-corn" AKA popcorn and placed a large leaf on top.

 
 

 
 

 





All of our serving dishes were white so it all looked uniform and did not take from the other colors of the party. We added a rather large black and white photo for the backdrop, again we wanted it to blend in and not take away. We had Dino nests which held mini dinosaur sour eggs and rocks which were Bronto Bites! The larger Dino Eggs were different flavored gum balls. Each of the food items were marked with a food label from our new Dinosaur ROAR party suite. Another one of our labels was the water bottle labels stating "Pre-Historic Water".

 
Moving on to the party favor table were the specially designed personalized Marshmallow Pops by our sweet friend Alejandra Morin of The Marshmallow Studio. We loved how these turned out and they are just as yummy as they are cute!! We gift wrapped different size boxes to give some height for the smaller table. We used lime and orange paper bags we purchased from Michael's and added a favor tag from our new Dinosaur ROAR party suite. Inside each bag contained a Dinosaur skeleton cookie, a toy dinosaur and a dinosaur information card so the kids could learn about the dinosaur they received in their bag.



 


 After the kids ate and before cake we had a Frozen Dino Dig. We froze mini dinosaurs in plastic cups overnight and once the party was started we removed the cups and only had ice. Each guest received a tin bowl with their frozen dinosaur to be excavated with spray bottles containing warm water and hard bristled toothbrushes to "scrape off" the ice.




 
 OK, the kids got tired, so my hubby came to the rescue with a hammer and chisel. The kids were so happy once they finally "dug" out their dinosaurs. Thank goodness it was beautiful outside, otherwise my house would have been soaked!!

 We had a mini photo booth with props ~ the kids had fun with this party extra!



And last but NOT least ~ the Birthday Boy!!!!
