We used some live potted plants from Ikea for décor, along with these reasonably-priced Tolsby frames ($1 each!) as sign-holders. I also got a few extra khaki colored plant pots to use as the utensil holders.
We separated the food out into categories: carnivores and herbivores. The carnivore menu included lil’ smokey pigs in a blanket, chicken taquitos, meatballs (see my crockpot party meatballs recipe here), and dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets.
See the birthday boy having fun in the sand (on the left) with his big brother carefully dusting off a fossil (on the right)!
Another fun party for my boys with a lot of personal touch! Even though Grayson’s birthday is 7 months away, the kid is already starting to plan his theme (planning early? He’s not my child or anything…). It is currently a combo of Iron Man, Paw Patrol, and dragons. We’ll see how that comes together if he doesn’t change his mind before then!
Edited to add: All printables for the party are available in this post here. These printables are free, but I would appreciate a follow for @fabeveryday on social media (you can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram) in return. If you post pictures of your parties, tag @fabeveryday in them so we can see what you do! Finally, if you blog about your party, please link back to fabeveryday.com in your blog posts to credit the printables and inspiration.
