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:

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!

Dinosaurs and Skylanders Academy Team Up

When you are presented with a joint party and ask the birthday boys what kind of theme they would like for their party you get this – a challenge of 2 themes that do not relate in any way – Dinosaurs and Skylanders Academy. A party inspired by two brothers favourites, Dinosaurs chosen by the 3 year old and Skylanders Academy chosen by the 5 years old. Their brief was lots of balloons, green from dinosaurs, blue for Skylanders, party food and fun! Confetti Party Hire delivered with this amazing party!



Combining the two themes appeared seamless through the use of the similar setup for each theme using props and light up letters of each boys name but tailoring each side of the room to each chosen theme of dinosaurs and Skylanders Academy.

Skylanders character props, themed cake, Skylanders Academy silhouette decals on props and chairs decorated the party for the Skylanders Academy loving 5 year old.

Dinosaur props, dinosaurs silhouettes and foot print decals, greenery, dinosaur printed tableware and cake were positioned through the party setup for a dinosaur loving 3 year old.

Clever colour lighting and balloon choices both pushed the colour themes to the next level.

Fun elements of kids grazing on kids tables and venue choice made the party memorable for both kids and adults. A fun way to celebrate a 3rd and 5th birthday for brothers.

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!

Dinosaur Invitations & Stationery

Invitations are a great way to set the scene for a fun-filled party of ROARsome adventures as well as set your colour palette for decorating on the day. Here are some fantastic Dinosaur party invites:

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!
