30 Dinosaur Birthday Party Ideas You Will Love

By  | Last Updated:  

We’ve been having Dinosaur Party Week all week long. It’s included a dinosaur party feature, a post on how to make dinosaur fossils from old coffee beans, easy dinosaur party favors and a dinosaur feet craft. The culmination is this post chock full of dinosaur party ideas. If you’re planning a dinosaur birthday party, you’re in luck. I’ve brought together 30 dinosaur parties that you will love as well as an additional 12 dinosaur party ideas at the end of the post.

The muted color palette of this gorgeous dinosaur themed birthday by Sweet Empire really sets the stage for a dino adventure. Check out the fabulous feature it received on Sweet Designs by Amy Atlas.


If you’re looking for dinosaur party ideas, this is the party you want to take a look at. Thrown by Chic Up Your Party — from food to activities — ever single detail is covered, and beautifully photographed.


Karo’s Fun Land created this fun dinosaur themed 4th birthday party for her twin nephews. They’re active, adventurous, and loving dinosaurs, so it was the perfect theme for their 4th birthday.


How fun is the dessert table backdrop used at this dinosaur party? I love the 3D element. Piece of Cake Parties and Celebrations planned this party and no detail was left unattended — from this dessert table to the tablescapes, favors and more.


Featured on Pizzazzerie, this dinosaur birthday party from Crissy’s Crafts turns a dessert table “into Jurassic Park by adding dinosaur figures, edible dinosaur eggs…and pterodactyl pops.”

It’s hard to believe that this dinosaur birthday party was part of our Boy Bash on a Budget Challenge. It looks anything but done on a budget. It was created by Wild Rose Sweets and Styling and was our very first entry, setting the standard for all of the fabulous entries that followed.


The kids had a blast at this dinosaur themed birthday, featured on Catch My Party, mom organized a party where they got to play, dig, explore and have tons of fun.


Our fabulous customer, Rachelle, held this fun outdoor dinosaur birthday party for her son Madden at Dinosaur World in Florida. She says the whole event was a hit. After seeing the photos, I totally agree.


I seriously cannot get enough of the dinosaur tails on the chairs that are part of this dinosaur themed second birthday party by Buggy and Bean. The rest of the party is pretty awesome too!


Little Dance Invitations threw this dinosaur themed fourth birthday party — her son is obsessed with all things dino. The entrance to the house was flnked by two massive MDF dinosaurs that are must-sees!


I’ve quietly (and sometimes not so quietly) followed the blog Little Lovely since 2009 and this handmade dinosaur party by Khali has always been one of my favorites.

(As an aside, she was one of the first bloggers to ever write about Spaceships and Laser Beams, featuring our monster cupcake wrapper when we were brand new and no one knew our name — and for that generosity I will never forget.)


LOL Bugles turned into Dino Toenails. Check out this and other fun details at this dinosaur themed fourth birthday (dino-four!) by Gabriel Good Tidings.


Binoculars made out of toilet paper roles? Yes, please. LOVE the dinoculars made for dinosaur party from Elephant Juice, which was featured on our blog.

A feature on Hostess with the Mostess rewarded Amy L.B. Photography for her party planning efforts. She drew ideas from a variety of party planners and crafters all listed in the post.


Here’s another absolutely great dinosaur themed fourth birthday parties. This one was planned by The Fabulous Mom Guide


This dinosaur themed party from The Celebration Shop has to be one of the prettiest I have ever seen. Who knew that was even possible?


Stunning. There’s no other word to describe this dinosaur themed birthday party from Turtle Crafty Girl. I am pretty much in love with every single dino detail.


A little slice of party perfection. That’s what I would call this dinosaur party thrown by A Little Polkadot and featured by Love the Day.


Natasha of Mini Mocha created a gaggle of cardboard dinosaurs to celebrate her son’s birthday with some perfect homemade touches.


Dinosaur gummies topping cupcakes — what a great idea. Check out more of this dinosaur themed party from The Inspired Occasion


Sweet Designs by Amy Atlas is one of the best party resources. And The Inspired Occasion once again proved their dinosaur party prowess with a featured guest table on the Amy Atlas blog.


Check out this dinosaur themed dessert table from 3’s A Party Candy Buffets and Party Supplies. Lots of dino-mite ideas are incorporated.


What’s better than a dinosaur party for one little boy? A party for two little boys, of course! Miranda of Whimsically Detailed threw this dinosaur party for her twin sons.


A dinosaur egg hunt was the focus of fun for this little boy’s fourth birthday party, which was planned by Pure Joy Events.


A product photo shoot turned into a dinosaur playdate for J at Your Service. Check out what she did here.


Proving that dinosaur themes are universal, AR Party Planner threw this party for a dino lover in Brazil!


I love this natural history museum take on a dinosaur themed party. It was created by Quaintly Garcia and also featured on Kara’s Party Ideas.


Here’s our Spaceships and Laser Beams take on a dinosaur birthday dessert table – featuring Andrew’s most awesome illustrations.


It’s always fun to see what your customers will do with your work. It’s one of my favorite parts of this job. And I love what this mom did at her son’s dinosaur second birthday party.


LOVE the backdrop idea for this dinosaur themed dessert table by Allison Lawson Cakes!
