A Jurassic 6th Birthday Party

October has to be my favourite month of the year. It is most definitely party season for us with Oliver´s Birthday, followed by Halloween, Bonfire Night and shortly after, Christmas!

Oliver decided that this year he wanted a Jurassic Park birthday, so no more cute and cuddly dinosaurs; he wanted the roaring, big teeth and sharp claws!

Oliver and his best friend Henry have Birthdays very close together and as they were both turning six and Henry decided he also wanted a Dino party, we decided to throw the boys a joint party.

I used wooden crates for the party bags and covered the front of some of them in grass using a glue gun.

I put sweets, crisps and a dinosaur bookmark and stencil sets inside each boy´s bag, and an animal stencil set with a magic wand for the girls. I´m seriously not being sexist. The first year we did a big birthday party for Oliver, the girls complained that the Lightning McQueen gifts were too boyish and this year the girls were actually fighting to make sure their bag contained a wand and not a dinosaur!

The cake had the coolest details like a Velociraptor guarding it´s eggs in the middle, a Dino poking itself out of a sugar crocodile filled lake and Oreo ´dirt´which all the kids really loved!

Luckily it was an amazing day and we could all sit outside and enjoy the sunshine whilst the kids played on the Bouncy Castle.
