A Boy’s Dragon Themed Birthday Party

By  | 

Planning a boy’s fourth birthday party is a lot of fun, especially when a dragon birthday party theme is in the works! Birthday boy Ayden loves dragons, but after having a dragon theme for his third birthday party, his mom wanted to add a fresh twist to this year’s celebration.  Ayden loves the book Dragons Love Tacos so tacos became the fun addition to the already beloved dragon theme. Planned by Mints & Honey and photographed by Sprinkle Forest Photography, you’ll see so many trendy details, from party decorations to the dragon topped birthday cake to magical party favors!

The fabulous dessert table was backed by an amazing print by Shop Love Dottie. A cute black and white dragon steals the show, breathing out flames of “Happy Birthday Ayden”. Black and white rain drops create an eye-catching modern pattern as a bottom border.

Dragons Love Tacos Birthday party Cake

So many fun colors were incorporated into the birthday party desserts.  An amazing cake was topped with whimsical dragons and bordered with paper triangles in a variety of colors and patterns. I adore the mint cake stand which provides an unexpected pop of color.

I could live on dessert alone, but at this party, a full menu was available for guests to enjoy.  A self-serve taco bar was set up, which was the perfect idea to go with the “Dragons Love Tacos” theme.
