Barrett's DINOSAUR party::Part I

I was NOT on the ball with party planning this year.
It sneaks up on my every year, with Christmas and New Years just before, and I usually design and print the invites before Christmas.
But this year, it really got by me! I knew I wanted to do a dinosaur theme, but I didn't get the invites designed til the last minute.

I cruised the web for ideas, and found WAY too many cute things!
It was overwhelming...and my hubby thinks I'm crazy when I go into party-planning mode.

So, I really kept it all pretty simple. He doesn't think so, but I did!

The dino cake was the most fun!!
My cake lady (the lady that makes all the smash cake for my client's 1yr sessions)
made us a small white cake, so that we could decorate it ourselves.
I love coming up with cake ideas, and Justin always makes my vision a reality! He's so talented!
All I did was bake the cupcakes and place all the rocks.

We used this site {A Baked Creation} as a tutorial.

Some more of the party goodies...

pretzels, chocolate-covered raisins, peanut butter chips & a gummy worm

Thanks to my sister-in-law for helping me cut out all the cupcake toppers and the banner on her Cricut!
Love that thing!!

AND the best part... The Birthday Boy!!!

I need sleep...
more of the party coming later!!

  2. Wow! Totally awesome party! :) The cake topper and all the goodies were just too cute! :)

  3. Laura, what an amazing job! You could definitely do kids parties as part of your business (as if you're not busy enough as it is!)

  4. awesome! I think I now know what my daughters 3rd birthday theme is going to be. Girl LOVES dino's! Change a few colors and add a bow to the dinosaurs heads and i'm good to go.

  5. Thanks for the inspiration! I used the party favor as the idea!


  6. Hi! I love your dinosaur coloring book favor! Would you be willing to add it to your blog as a free printable? I love this idea as a favor, but I don't even know where to start!

  7. Love this Dino party!! Where did the stamps come from that you used on the "dino chow" This post is definitely great inspiration for my sons fourth party here in a few weeks! Thanks:)
