Dino Dig Boy’s 6th Birthday Party
This dino dig boy’s birthday party celebrating Pierson’s sixth birthday is another great celebration by Anders Ruff.
Bold orange brightens up an earth tone palette at this event full of awesome original themed menu ideas, fabulous decorations, fun activities, and personalized party favors. Watch for custom printables, small embellishments that add to the theme in a big way, and clever ideas for packaging and display.

- This Easy Dinosaur Craft is a great favor or decoration idea.
Custom printable invitations, by Anders Ruff Shop, give guests a preview of the party theme and activities.
Pierson welcomed his guests with personalized “excavation kits”, including an embroidered shirt and hat from Great Stitch, ID badge lanyard, laminated luggage tag, and assorted “dig kits”. Pierson also gifted personalized shirts at his bowling birthday party. Dressing for the part is a fun way to pull guests into the party theme.
Once outfitted in their excavation gear, little paleontologists got to work digging up bones! Metal trays kept all (well, most) of the sand in one place.
Party activities, like “dig-tac-toe” and a giant coloring wall poster, kept little diggers busy while mom set out lunches.
Maureen and Adria set gorgeous theme tables with boxwood topiaries, woven dried grass placemats, and stunning centerpieces featuring antique boxes with DIY spray-painted 3D dinosaur puzzles. This duo is masterful at creating party atmosphere (another example is this pizzeria-themed party)!
Each themed place setting includes a balanced meal. “Tasty carnivore bites” (a turkey and cheese sandwich), “crunchy herbivore munchies” (baby carrots), “dino tracks trail mix” (pretzels, chocolate candy rocks, Sixlets, and raisins), and a “sweet herbivore snack” (a clementine orange) await little paleontologists inside expertly assembled boxes. Printable labels, plus just the right containers, really add a lot to the lunch.
Once everyone finishes lunch, guests flock to the amazing dessert table, laden with scrumptious goodies.
With an embellished wooden spoon (Sucre Shop) adhered to the side, little paleontologists can dig right into their “dino dig pudding”. Make your own white chocolate bone candies with melting chocolate and a mold, then layer with whipped chocolate pudding and graham cracker crumbs.
Sugar Wood‘s oatmeal cream sandwich cookies, Sweeties by Kim‘s spotted chocolate-covered Oreo “dinosaur eggs”, and Frog Prince Cake & Cookie Design‘s fossil cookies look authentic. Dinosaur cookie pops look amazing standing in faux wheat grass! A little twine and ribbon transform everyday glassware into themed party dishes, while printable labels serve two purposes: they turn ordinary food into a themed menu (simple orange candies become dinosaur eggs!), and they help guests decide which foods they might like to try.
This dino dig boy’s birthday party is chock-full of fun dinosaur-themed ideas for activities, great menu items, and gorgeous rustic décor. Anders Ruff always provides ample inspiration for any theme! Check out their Pinterest boards for even more party planning ideas!
