From “dinomite” decorations to a super cool dinosaur birthday cake, this wildly fun dinosaur themed party by Andriana, from wecandoit, has loads of inspiration.

A tent was set up for little dinosaur hunters. Pennant flags with dinosaur graphics were strung overhead from trees. Little prehistoric vignettes were set up all over the grounds and included inflatable dinosaurs, driftwood, succulents, natural foliage and toy dinosaurs. Camouflage netting hung overhead. The outdoor setting at a school in Athens was perfect!

Earthy tones paired with bright hues of orange and green made the dining area party ready. Burlap and green runners topped tables accented with orange and green plates and cups, jute tied napkin rolls, and lunch boxes with adorable dinosaur footprint cutouts. I loved the choice of raw wood stumps for seating—so inviting.

Centerpieces consisted of dinosaur themed terrariums and various potted plants. I love the natural look!

There was also a separate serving table with long strands of raffia and ivy garland along the table’s edge.

For games, guests searched for dinosaur eggs, participated in a dinosaur dig and even “fed” the dinosaurs as part of the bean bag toss game. The fun obstacle course, a balance beam to walk on, and a dinosaur knock-down game were part of the exciting event activities.

A nature-inspired favor table was set up to display kraft-colored favor bags. Even the green hang tags sported tiny dino pictures! Natural overhanging foliage paired nicely with a green backdrop to provide a great setting. There was a lot going on in that small area. The table was decked out with prehistoric props—pieces of driftwood, dinosaur toys, an oversized dinosaur, a terrarium full of plants and a dinosaur toy, plus 3-D letters positioned to spell “roar”. Favor bags were neatly perched atop wooden crates. Guests also received dinosaurs and jars with chocolate dinosaur eggs to take home.

With such attention to providing the perfect setting for everything dinosaur, birthday boys and small-fry guests would find this sort of birthday party quite the thrill!
