Tania’s son Kabir loves dinosaurs, so deciding who should roar at his birthday party was an easy decision. From T-Rex to Pterodactyls, this birthday party provided big dig fun for a happy little explorer.
For an invitation, Tania decided to go with an invite in green, blue and orange with silhouettes of dinosaurs on them. Along with the printed food labels, Tania also added the signs to indicate if it was a Sweetivore Dino Diet or Carnivore/Herbivore Diet.
At the entrance were hanging dinosaur eggs made out of yarn balls. Aren’t they cute!
If you love the polka dot burlap banner Tania used for her dessert table backdrop, she hand painted each circle with love. “The banner is pinned on the backdrop is made from foam and covered with a printed fabric. Would you believe me if I tell you that I used a shower curtain as my fabric!” What Tania really wanted were big round balloons for the party. Her challenge became finding a place that would inflate them, but they do make quite the statement! They look great next to framed prints of dinosaurs hanging on the sides of the dessert table.
Popcorn cones were the first items to go. “Looks like popcorn rates higher than the sweet stuff for toddlers. I had to refill each kid’s cone. I made these popcorn cones from thick cardstock paper and decorated with tiny dinos and sparkles.”
The chocolate devil cake is topped with dinosaurs ready to roar. For the pterandon and stegosaurus, Tania use pictures to make the topper and added a cake banner made from printed paper.
Each kid snacked on a cupcake with a bright blue or green tissue pom pom topper. But the green and blue jello were the kids favorites. Tania also prepared marshamllows sprinkled in blue and green sugar sprinkles.
Instead of buying the expensive milk bottles, Tania used Starbucks coffee bottles. “That meant my family had to drink lots of coffee in a short span of time.”
