Isssue 16 Magazine Shoot: Dino Dig Party

Dinosaurs have always been a popular party theme but with the latest release of Jurassic Park I feel this has become an even more popular party theme

Sassy Snaps is always brilliant at bringing a theme to life and this is what she did in this collaboration magazine shoot in Perth based around a Dinosaur Dig theme! Take the time to soak in the details because there are so many ideas here!

This shoot was created for Issue 16 of Celebrating Little One’s Magazine here: https://issuu.com/lifeslittlecelebrations/docs/celebratinglittleones_julaug22

The whole setup as you can see was incredible:

 

 

 

 

 

The dinosaur cake seemed to defy gravity!

 

The balloons mixed in with the rustic florals created an amazing visual effect which worked in with the Dinosaur party theme

 

 

 

 

These handmade tassel chandeliers worked so well into the rustic dinosaur party feel:

 

 

The table setting for the kids was so inviting and fun with a mix of partyware, desserts and props to help the kids feel like they were on a real dinosaur hunt:

 

 

 

How stunning are these dinosaur cookies, cake pops and cupcakes?!

 

 

 

 

The kids were well entertained with activity stations, ball pit and a themed entertainer!:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you can see, the whole setting really brought the dinosaur party theme to life with excavation kits, a dig site and even a dinosaur hunting truck!

 

 

Party favours included these dino dig favour boxes and cookie mix bottles!:

 

 

 

 

 

What a fun Dinosaur Dig birthday party for Sammy!! I can’t think of anything more fun than this setting and all these activity ideas for a boy who loves dinosaurs! Well done Sassy Snaps and all the Celebrate Society members involved!

 

 

Well done to all the vendors involved:

Dinosaur Party Theme Supplies


Is it just me, or have Dinosaurs become less scary and more trendy of late?

Prehistoric and scary or cool and friendly, kids love them and it makes a great birthday party theme for all ages and for both boys and girls alike. Bold primary colours, pretty pastels, jungle foliage or patterns – they’ve got it all going on! Even making very cool plant or flower holders as centrepieces!

Here is some inspiration to get you started and a round up of Dinosaur party finds from our Celebrate Society members! CLICK on any image to be taken to that business

Dinosaur Decorations

For a more modern dinosaur party theme, keep colours in a bold, monochrome or pastel palette and introduce pops of metallics and props. Or for an older age group, you can’t go past a jungle set up with lots of greenery and natural textures.

A rawsome Dinosaur party!

If you want a unique and modern take on a Dinosaur party, then you will absolutely love this collaboration shoot styled by Enchanted Party Hire in Queensland! This shoot was for Issue 5 of “Celebrating Little One’s” – our online e-magazine which you can view here!

The shoot brought together a range of Life’s Little Celebration members all collaborating to create the incredible shoot – set to inspire a new range of dinosaur parties! As you can see below…the result was AMAZING! Just look at that giant dinosaur balloon and huge slumber tent:

 

 

 

 

The black and white stationery – from the invite to the backdrop and more – really helped set the modern tone for this dinosaur party:

 

 

 

 

All the desserts were created to match the design and colour scheme and worked together to add some “raw-some” deliciousness to this dinosaur party!:

 

 

 

Take home favour options included these dinosaur lollipop holders, chocolate bars, cookie mixes and lolly boxes!:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The kids party table continued the modern look with the mix of black/white and copper touches along with cute dinosaur tails on the stools!

 

 

 

I could certainly spend a whole day relaxing in this huge tent which was a feature of this dinosaur party! Just look at the space!:

 

 

 

This truly was a rawsome celebration that any dinosaur lover would enjoy!
