everything you'll need for 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. Here’s how you can have the theme dinosaur for a birthday party.

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.
