Bold pops of colour and bright decor imbue this dino celebration with a whole lot of fun!
You can read the full details of this fairy tea party in the Winter 2018 issue of Confetti Fair.
This adorable dino party was inspired by birthday boy Cooper’s very colourful personality and his love for dinosaurs. Normally, when you think dinosaurs, you think gloomier colours such as dark green and dirt brown.
However, Mint and Magic had a little something else in mind and when we came across Daydream Society’s dino line, we fell in love! The design just pops! Once we found our tableware, we then playfully tied in the surrounding elements to match. Using the colours dark blue, baby blue, seafoam green, red, and yellow as our main colour scheme, we then ordered the perfect cake, cookies, invitations, and of course, built our balloon garland.
We created three different stations for the kids to have a “dinomite” experience. Each station is incredibly easy to recreate for your own party! Our first station was an area where the kids could create their own safari hat. We ordered plastic safari hats from Amazon and set out a ton of different stickers so that the kids could design their own hat.
The next station included a huge sandbox filled with dino bones waiting to be discovered. Wearing their new hats, the kids gathered their digging shovels and quickly got to work. The excitement was too real and just too cute. Our final station included a homemade game we called “Triceratoss” The kinds threw circle glow sticks and tried to make it on the horns of the Triceratops. So much fun!
One of our favourite easy peasy party hacks included in this design was the colouring paper tablecloth. You can find these at your local craft store and they were a huge hit! We set out colours along the table and the kids went right to it. What a simple way to add a little something extra to the table! Yes, pun intended!
