One of Life’s Little Celebrations followers requested a ‘Dorothy the Dinosaur for a boy’ blog post! This is a difficult one since a lot of Dorothy the Dinosaur items are for girls or have pink involved.
However I’ve tried to put together some ideas here of how you could perhaps decorate for this theme – however I apologise as I couldn’t find too much!
When decorating for a party based around a particular character, you don’t need to go down the track of having the licensed character’s plates, cups, decorations etc. You can base the decorations around the colour scheme of the character or some other aspect of the character.
So I’ve based the choices for this party around green and yellow and yellow polkadots with a few Dorothy the Dinosaur items. This is an easy way to style the party while still bringing the theme out.
I have done a previous theme on a general Dinosaur theme and you could incorporate elements from this also into this party theme. You can find that blog post here.
It was quite difficult to find Dorothy the Dinosaur invitations which had no pink! This was the only one I could source:
These bottle cap printables could be used on cups, mini bottles, gift tags or as toppers:
Decorate using the main colours of green and yellow polka dots. You could also choose another colour to mix in with this colour combination (possibly red, or perhaps brown/natural tones). Just a few Dorothy the Dinosaur items can be used around the party to emphasise the theme such as this Dorothy the Dinosaur balloon:
This Dorothy the Dinosaur tail and plush toy (which both come in different sizes) could be used as decorations/props at the party as well as fun gifts for the birthday child after the party too:
I’d suggest having a look around the shops as well as it might be easy to find some Dorothy the Dinosaur items which you cannot find online or even things such as Dorothy the Dinosaur wrapping paper or cards which you could cut out and make some decoration items from.
These Dorothy the Dinosaur cupcake toppers can be ordered as a way of decorating your cupcakes:
You could also use green icing for your cupcakes and then pop them in these baking cups and use the yellow polka dot cupcake toppers shown below:

These green and yellow polkadot cups are perfect for this colour scheme – you could fill them with various treats on the table:
For favours you could use general Dinosaur theme favours (some ideas are found in my Dinosaur theme post) or go with a musical feel such as mini musical instruments. Use a packaging option to match in with your colour scheme:
These jute sacks are cute and great if you are adding a natural element into the Dorothy the Dinosaur theme:

Rather than a few little novelty items or lollies you could give each child a Dorothy the Dinosaur book such as this one:

I hope this has helped somewhat for any of you planning a gender neutral Dorothy the Dinosaur party!
