Here’s one party theme that is DINO-MITE! Bring the fun of a fossil hunter’s dig to the next birthday party for the future paleontologist in your life. Kids will dig your Dinosaur Birthday Party that all starts with an invite featuring a grow your own dinosaur. Once they arrive they’ll be psyched for all the sweet options for the dessert-ivores! Listen for the ROAR of laughter over dinos in party hats and cheers of excitement from the budding paleontologists digging for toy fossils. After all the fun you can send them on their way with a custom mix of dinosaur tracks in a personalized dinosaur party favor.

You can’t actually send a dinosaur through the mail… or can you?
Instructions on the invite let recipients know how to grow a Triceratops, Tyrannosaurs rex or Stegosaurus right at home!
Tip: Make sure to add extra stamps to compensate for the dinosaur addition!
Dinosaurs are anything but modern! Bring on the rustic old look over the dinosaur age with your party setup. Use a wooden pallet as the backdrop to your dinosaur party dessert table and hang tissue paper jungle vines from the top for a prehistoric display.
Create some texture to your dessert table with layers of plastic table cloths and a faux burlap table runner.
Tip: make your colorful tableware pop and layer on a solid tablecloth!
