Planning a Dinosaur Birthday Party
Recently my sweet nephew turned three and had a dinosaur birthday party. It was adorable and I was honored to get to design all the bits and pieces for it.
Not surprisingly, there were already a lot of ideas out there for a dinosaur birthday party, but I put my own touch on it and personalized everything for my nephew. While planning it, I loved seeing all the fun sayings as well.
Dinosaurs are adorable for more than a birthday party too. They make a fun baby shower theme for boy girl or gender neutral. You can find all the fun things as printables and download some free graphics.

20 Dinosaur Birthday Party Designs
Today I’m sharing 20 dinosaur birthday party designs as well as giving away free graphics complete with the fun sayings I mentioned before. From invite to thank you card, and all things in between you’ll find everything you need for a dinosaur birthday party.
Announce the Party
First things first, you’ll want to announce the party. One of the things I love to do is make fun shaped invites and use colorful envelopes. You’ll see both of these below. I took a bite out of the invite and paired it with red envelopes. You could pair it with any color you want. Check our shop for choices or find your own below.
One thing I always offer with all my print orders is colorful envelopes. I love it and I think it gives my designs that extra special touch. You can find a few colors at Hobby Lobby. We offer every color you can think of, not just the ones shown below.
Next up, it’s time to decorate. For this, I love signs but I also love easy ways to add some fun decor to the party. That means, I used dinosaur toys that could double as gifts that you’ll find below. Balloons are also always a good idea and dinosaur-shaped ones are perfect.
The Dinosaur Bundle
Before we get to specifics, here’s how you can get all the dino printables:
Put this welcome sign on the door so guest know they’ve arrived at the right place. It can be customized for any age and colors.
This is another sign that’s great for the front door. Or, use it to get everyone to the backyard. Do you have a tricky neighborhood or apartment complex to get around? Then use this to show guests the way. You can download and print it as many times as you need
I love this next sign because it’s personalizable. It’s an emailed digital file. Which means, you buy once, you get to print it as many times as you need. Want a printed sign instead? We offer that as well. Contact us for a custom listing.
You can’t have a birthday without a happy birthday banner! Be sure to wish your little one the best day with this fun printable.
Download all the numbers in two colors instantly here. They are fun to hang around the party as well. It’s not just the number 3 either. you get 0-9 so make any age you need.
Use dinosaur toys to display around the party. Add party hats to them or tie balloons on to make it even more festive. The best part? They double as gifts! Woot-woot!
I mean, it’s a party, you’ve gotta have balloons right? I’m loving these that are shaped like dinos. Too stinkin’ cute.
Honor the Birthday Boy or Girl
I love these next items because they are all about the birthday boy or girl. Give them something fun to wear or keep the theme going with personalized gift bags.
My favorite way to honor the birthday boy or girl is with a personalized t-shirt. Sure they might not wear it again, but it’ll sure look cute in the photos. Plus, it will make them feel extra special.
Not into the custom t-shirt but love the idea of honoring the birthday boy or girl? Use a button instead. It’s cheaper, and they can keep it after the party is over to decorate their room.
You’ve gotta have gifts at a birthday party. I love the idea of custom gift bags. You can even take the name off so you can re-use them. Too cute.
For the Food
Chances are, you’re going to have some sort of food at the party. For this, I’ve made several signs and a table-cloth which make the food festive.
You’re going to need plates if you plan to serve any kind of food. Why not make them cute?
Not sure about the plates, but love the idea of an extra touch? Napkins might be the way to go. Best part, you can use them after the party too. There’s always a mess to clean up.
I love having custom food signs at parties. It’s just so cute. People will definitely notice them because they are most certainly going to be eating. Download these instantly. Contact us if you need a different color or wording.
I have to say, I adore how these cupcake toppers turned out. I couldn’t resist keeping the same “bite” theme going. The dinos themselves turned out to be super cute as well.
After the Party
Once the awesome dinosaur birthday party is over, you’ll need to say thank you. Do this with favors, stickers, and thank you cards below. Check dollar tree and target for cheap favors.
You can’t have a party without favors! Thank guests and send them home with a treat.
I love adding a personalized touch to the party favors. Get personalized stickers to add to treat bags, envelopes, and more.
Let’s bring back sending thank you cards for birthday parties. I know it’s more work for mom and dad, but really, it’s worth it.
