Okay so it my little boys 4th birthday a few months ago and I have only just got round to posting the pictures of his dinosaur themed birthday party, but in my defence it has been a busy few months. He is completely obsessed with dinosaurs so when it came to choosing a theme for his party it was pretty much guaranteed he’d go for dinosaurs. Despite the fact that he is only four he didn’t want anything babyish (he likes to think he’s a big boy) so the usual cartoon type dinosaur themes where out of the question. I was looking online for some inspiration when I came across these adorable party printables by Miranda at Whimsical Printables. I loved the colours, and the dinosaur images she used where perfect for my little ‘big’ boys party. The printable pack came with cupcake wrappers, cupcake toppers, bottle labels, bunting, food labels, thank you notes for the party bags and more. I decided to base my table around the colours of the printables and got some brown and green netting (from a floral wholesalers) and some deep green artificial foliage which I used to add texture to the table. I used bright orange string and chocolate brown ribbon to accent the cake stand, bunting and marshmallow pops and scattered the table with giant bugs and toy dinosaurs that I found around the house to give a Jurassic feel.
He wanted a volcano birthday cake which turned out to be really easy to make (I use the term ‘make’ loosely). I bought a couple of chocolate cakes from the supermarket, stacked them on top of each other and sculpted them into a rough volcano shape. The lava was made with red and orange buttercream which was topped off with red jelly. It only look me about 10 mins to put together and turned out rather well.
We had a nest full of chocolate dinosaur eggs.
There was jungle juice and for budding archaeologists a bowl of edible mud ‘n’ bones.
Green marshmallow pops made some edible foliage and the kids loved the swamp slime which was made by mixing two green jellies’ (Jell-O) together.
And of course a plate full of dinosaur biscuits.
Needless to say he had an absolutely fabulous time at his party and has already said he wants another dinosaur party next year.
