To create the vibrant frosting colors I used concentrated gel colors made by Wilton. A little bit goes a long way! They can be found at your local craft store or you can visit http://www.wilton.com to purchase online.
Robin also created this beautifully detailed banner
that we kept after the party to hang in our daughter's play room. I love this banner so much I feel I must post another picture so you can see the intricate craftsmanship!
With the larger crowd this year, my husband and I decided to use our garage space as an extra party room. We did not want our guest to have to stare at our tools/lawn equipment so we ended up wrapping the entire garage with rolls of plastic table clothes. A staple gun was used to secure the plastic to the ceiling and again at the bottom of the wall. Then we finished off the look with streamers and tissue paper puffs. The total cost for this project was less than $20. The end result turned out looking like a fun circus tent! Far better than we had imagined.
Pterodactyl wings (Buffalo wings)
Paleontologist Pasta Salad
Deviled Dino Eggs
T-Rex Tortilla Rolls
Stegosaurus snack mix (homemade chex mix)
And No Dinosaur party would be complete with out a Dino Dig . We filled my daughter's plastic baby pool with a few bags of clean sand and buried dollar store dinosaur toys. Each little girl received a Prehistoric Dinosaurs Pith Helmet (purchased from Party City) , a bucket, shovel and all the dinosaurs they dug up as a party favor!
