So when it came on how to decorate I knew I wanted to do as much of it myself as possible - and that is just what I did. This was not a giant party, it was low key but I wanted Silas to have fun and enjoy it so for me, it was all about him.
Today I will give you some of the details shots and then I will give you another post with a breakdown of all the specific projects I did and what it cost and all of that, you know for all of the dinosaur parties you are wanting to throw in the near future- this will be most helpful.
So here's some ideas to get you started...
Lots of diying going on here - mini chalkboards, burlap tablecloth, birthday banners and so on...
I found a lot of the supplies online at a precious little shop called Sweet Lulu here's a link to some of her awesome goodies: Striped Paper Straws
Ok, don't laugh at my dinosaur cake (well, you can it you want, just not to my face). I totally needed more icing but just didn't have it. Note to self: if attempting a dino cake in the future, plan for more icing than necessary. Even though it didn't quite turn out magazine worthy Silas loved it and even knew it was a dinosaur so that's all that mattered to me.
I loved these plastic milk bottles - a great kid friendly (and wallet friendly) alternative to the fancy glass ones.
Some of Silas' favorite foods, plus cute mini snack cups found at Sweet Lulu.
We served a variety of Silas foods and adult foods (most not pictured) so everyone had a chance to eat something they enjoyed. We had such a great time celebrating together and watching Silas open his gifts and hear what he had to say or just watch his funny expressions. It was a special time.
As always, thanks for stopping by and Happy Wednesday!
