introducing dinosaur… roar!

So I do have a perfectly good reason for not blogging yesterday, we were shooting our new dinosaur birthday party theme. My youngest is a huge, did I say HUGE, dinosaur fan, so he’s already claimed this one for his next birthday party. {wink} On to the pics:

I just adore the bright colors, blueberry dot and red dot plates, lime green and lemon dot napkins and of course the “Happy Birthday!” dinosaur cupcake picks with coordinating cupcake liners. And if you look closely you can see the yellow T-Rex in the background… my son has run off with it already. Hope we didn’t need any more shots!

Here’s an up-close shot of the “Roar!” cupcake pick. We used a scallop punch and a foam adhesive square to give it that 3-D effect. And don’t you just love the grass? I have to admit, we used a Cricut machine, but I bet you could do the same thing with a pair of scissors and a little patience.

Recognize anything? Yep, one of the cello designs is part of our Valentine giveaway.

Or, maybe you prefer to give slightly larger favors (e.g., stuffed dinosaurs, dino t-shirts) and need a red and white polka dot gable box with a dinosaur tag? {wink}

And here’s our dino napkin ring.

Love, love, love the straw slips. This collection offers four “Roar!” designs and four blank designs in case you prefer to write each child’s name on the slip.

Plus, we found this six-piece cookie cutter set including, among others, T-Rex, Pteradactyl and Brontosaurus.

Oh, and how can I forget to show you my palm tree cupcake… that got broken just before the shoot… it was a lot taller. {giggle} Oh well, you gotta roll with the punches and use carmel to put your Twix tree trunk back together. The leaves are actually gum drop candy rolled flat, cut with kitchen scissors to the shape of leaves and then slightly curled up at the edges. I attached them to the tree with green icing, same as the grass, and allowed it to dry before inserting it into the cupcake.

As always, hope you’re inspired and make sure you stop in the shoppe to see all the details!

    I love your website and all your ideas! I’m doing a circus-themed party for my 1 year old son next month. Where did you get your plates & napkins? I love them and they would go great with my party!

    I’m planning a dino party for my 3 yr old and I loved the yellow dino in the background, where did you get it?

      The yellow dino was part of a set of three from Step2 I believe. I picked it up a few years ago knowing that someday I would get some use out of it. I hate to say that I think they’ve been discontinued since then because I looked into buying them for the shoppe and couldn’t find them. So sorry!
