What a fun take on a dinosaur party! This cute ORANGE & GREEN DINOSAUR 4TH BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Karolina of Karo’s Fun Land.
Karolina said- “I threw this Dinosaur Party to celebrate my twin nephew’s 4th birthday. Last year they were all about Toy Story. This year they’re more active, adventurous, and sooo loving dinosaurs. So I thought they were gonna love a dinosaur theme for their 4th birthday. Sure they did!!!
My Inspiration for this party started with the color palette from the Anders Ruff dinosaur printable. I just simply love those happy and fun colors. From there I decided to put together a table with some fun themed treats which included green dinosaur rice krispies, bugles corn snacks simulating dinosaur toe nails, dino-mite jellos and vanilla cupcakes with dinosaur toppers from Edible Details. Yum Yum!! And because my nephews love balloons I included two giant orange balloons to the table decor. The kids looove them!
For the centerpieces I just wanted to do something simple, but fun. I filled some jars with rocks, fake grass, and dinosaur figurines. They turned out T-Riffic!!!!
The cake was also simple, but totally cool. I decorated a plain vanilla frosted cake with shredded coconut, and topped it with my nephew’s dinosaur toys which were wearing party hats.
There were also dinosaur footsteps which directed thirsty guests to the dino-mite drink station. I definitely had the best time styling my nephew’s birthday party. They already named me as their official party planner WooHoo!! We totally had a blast and a roaring good time!!!!”
This adorable NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM DINOSAUR PARTY was submitted by Adriana Formica Garcia of Quaintly Garcia. I love the vintage dinosaur cards strung inside a frame as the focal point of the backdrop! The miniature bunting banner across the cupcake stand/box is just darling, too.
Here are the party details from Adriana-
“Like most boys his age, JD loves dinosaurs but we can honestly only credit this love for dinosaurs to the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles! We began visiting the museum with him in 2010 and became members soon after; we haven’t stopped visiting it since. When the Dinosaur Hall opened last year JD became completely fascinated with dinosaurs and fossils. There isn’t a week that goes by that he doesn’t ask to go to the “Dino Museum.” So, when the time came to plan his 3rd birthday party we knew dinosaurs would be the theme. When we found out the NHM of Los Angeles had a birthday party program, we didn’t have to think twice about the location.
The Natural History Museum’s birthday party program is really great! They provide everything you need to throw an amazing dinosaur party, everything but the food and cake! The program even provides event assistants (really awesome assistants) to help you run your party and direct all the activities and games. All your party guests also get admission to the museum for the day!
Julian had no idea his 3rd birthday party was going to be at his favorite museum, when he arrived and saw the balloons and decorations, the expression on his face was priceless! JD and his friends had such a great time. They played “Tyrannosaurus Says”, Pin the Horn on the Triceratops, they made dinosaur masks and their very own fossils. I have to admit that this party was amazingly stress free thanks to the help of our very supportive family, the wonderful staff at the Natural History Museum, and especially Kersti Kooiman. Kersti not only helped me decorate, but she is also the incredible photographer behind these amazing pictures of JD and his dinosaur party!”

Today’s feature goes to this super fun DINOSAUR 2ND BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Stephanie Keeping of Spaceships and Laser Beams. What a cute take on the classic Dinosaur theme! The bone banner is too clever. And take a look at all the various dinosaur eggs made out of kiwi’s & chocolates, etc! Everything is just darling.
Here is what Stephanie said about the party- “I wanted to share a dessert table featuring our Prehistoric Party Printable Collection. Menu for the dessert table included a variety of dinosaur “eggs”, bread made to look like dino bones that have been excavated, chocolate chip cake and vanilla dinosaur cupcakes. There was also a Brownie Dino Dig- I really love the dinosaur party games that let little guests dig through dirt/ sandboxes outside to find dinosaur bones or eggs. I wanted to replicate it in a dessert.”
