A Boy’s Dinosaur Party
Digging up ideas for a boys birthday party theme can be tough! But for mom and stylist Jhoanee, of Its a Cake Thing, it was pretty simple: her son had been telling her for an entire year that he wanted a dinosaur birthday party when he turned 3! Planning a party around a theme your son is already excited about brings an extra measure of fun to the party planning process. Jhoanees son also begged for a T-Rex birthday cake. Not only did Jhoanee oblige, she also came up with an entire dessert table full of prehistoric treats, mixed in with stylish party décorations as well. I love the variety of textures and pops of color Jhoanee used for her tabletop display. There is just the right balance of earthiness and fun for a little guys celebration.

To set the scene for this prehistoric party, Jhoanee covered the walls and tabletop with jute (Occasion by Design). She incorporated natural looking elements like ferns and baskets made of woven reeds, a wooden stump(Tiny Tots Toy Hire), and a birds nest (The Little Big Company) to represent the great outdoors. Created from paper in coordinating party colors, Jhoanee hung a Zachysaurus banner to add interest and personalization to the party.
Popping out of his shell, an adorable baby T-Rex cake served as the tables focal point. Would you even dare cut into something so cute?
Jhoanee went the extra mile in baking several other creative treat options for the dessert table, too. There were chocolate truffles, aptly named dino droppings. Meringue was whipped into dino bones. Fossil cookies were made by making an imprint of a toy dinosaurs foot prior to bakingso clever!
Mini volcanoes were created from crushed biscuits and Nutella with lava flow embellishments.
Would you believe the mud bath was created from mousse with crushed Oreos added on top?
Easter candy eggs were used as the perfect speckled eggs.
Additional candies, muffins and treats were enticingly displayed, including custom wrapped chocolate bars. What a great round-up of dinosaur desserts!
Cute, customized food labels by each item included creative names. I love the cups of veggies with the for the herbivores label! How cute is that?
Fun little dinosaur vignettes were set up on the table using toy dinosaurs and edible chocolate rocks from The Professors.
What an awesome way to celebrate a dinosaur-loving little boy on his 3rd birthday!
