Invitation: The Dinosaur Egg! I put "breaking news" on the envelope.
I renamed each of the kids, on the invitations, name tags and favors: saurus, ceratops, dactyl & raptor at the end of each of their names.
Food: This was a fun! I made jello jigglers in circle shapes for a lake, mashed potatoe mountains, broccoli trees and dino nuggets!
The Cake: Yes, it did take about 4 hours...but it was worth it. I got this idea from coolest-birthdaycakes.com. First I dyed the fondant blue and Rob cut it out into spikes, toenails, eyes & nose. Then we made 2 round cakes and a rectangle cake and cut out the pieces.
Next, we did a layer of frosting over the whole thing then I spent about 2 hours piping scaly stars all over the whole cake!
He loved it! That is the best part!
Favors: Pretty much all from oriental trading co. dinosaur grabbers, dino stickers, their own set of pvc dinosaurs, dino fruit snacks and a large dino egg filled with candy!
This was SO much fun. We had 12 kids, I reccommend 1 adult per every 3 kids with this kind of party!
