I love to do themed birthday’s for my children. Especially first birthday’s. There is nothing more fun to me! My little Brown Bear was turning one just a week before my husband was turning 30, so we met in the middle and threw them both a little party involving dinosaurs!
This was one of the easier parties to do, to be honest. Dinosaur stuff is pretty easy to find. For the main table, I got some fake leaves, borrowed some dinosaur toys from my older son, used a few plants, and a few of my textured items that I use for newborn photos. I had one of my pots with dinosaur skeletons for the kids on the table too. For his high chair, I used a fabric to cover the seat and hooked palm leaves on it as well.
The cakes were made by Rockstar Cakery in Cottonwood Heights, Utah. You can find her on Instagram, her website and her Facebook. She did a fantastic job. They were so detailed and beautiful. Her work is AMAZING! I highly recommend her for your next party!
The shirts for Us and our littlest Brown Bear were made by Eliza with Day Designs. She was fabulous making these for us VERY last minute. I’m not kidding that I totally slacked off on this party until the week of!
My darling sister-in-law, Katie, made the dinosaur eggs with her kids. Those were so much for the kids at the party! She also made the adorable dinosaur footprint cookies!
The invitations were made by me, of course, and I decorated everything. I also made the quilt for my baby- I have made each of them a twin size quilt for their first birthday. It was quilted by Heidi with Stipple & Stitch. My friend Laura with Tattered Butterfly Photography (Facebook & Instagram) was awesome and took over my camera for me so that I could be in some of the photos.
The little dinosaurs for in the eggs as well as the dinosaur skeletons were purchased at Zurchers!
All in all, this party really was one of my favorites. It was easy and looked great. Super fun and great for a budget party!
