7 ROARsome Ideas For Dinosaur Birthday Party

7 ROARsome Ideas For Throwing a Dinosaur Birthday Party

A Dinosaur Birthday Party is an absolute favourite for kids this year, and who could blame them?

There’s something that fascinates us all about the ancient reptiles that used to roam around. For kids it’s a great mix of imagination and fun, not to mention educational (But don’t tell them that! That’s no fun).

Project Party is throwing the ULTIMATE Dinosaur Birthday Party for our own Roarsome 5-year-old Dino Jr..

We’re going to share the best ideas to make your child’s Dinosaur theme come to life.

Supporting Local

Project Party wanted to say a big thanks to the businesses affected most during the events of 2021.

We are big believers in supporting local businesses and what better way to do that than by throwing a birthday party that uses local party professionals.

We’re from Sydney’s Northern Beaches and we wanted to include as many local businesses as we could in this project.

No Stress Planning

Using Project Party to organise our party supplies was a breeze. We’re lucky to have many amazing businesses from our region to choose from.

We found vendors who could make a Dinosaur theme extra special, messaged directly for a quote, and had everyone booked in a flash.

Dinosaur Party Ideas

Now we’re ready to party, and you’re preparing the ultimate Dinosaur birthday, but you're not sure exactly what you’re going to need.

Here’s a checklist for everything you need to plan the perfect party for your Dinosaur obsessed kid.

1. Are You Not Entertained?

Choosing an entertainer for your kid's Dinosaur party is a great idea. It’s not easy keeping many excited kids under control, so having an experienced entertainer to keep the fun flowing is priceless.

Naturally, we would LOVE them to come as a Dinosaur to match our theme but we'll do with a Jurassic Park-Esque park ranger.

But with time to plan we go exactly what Dino Jr. wanted with the phenomenal The Little Creative Co. who comes dressed as a Dinosaur!

2. Let Them Eat Cake!

It’s not a birthday party without a cake, right?

And it wouldn’t be a Dinosaur Party without a Dinosaur Birthday cake.

Organising a Dinosaur cake for your Dinosaur party is a must!

Party Project is lucky to be near the extremely talented Sugar Princess Cakes. Their Dinosaur cake will absolutely amaze our lucky 5-year-old.

Check out Sugar Princess and other talented cake bakers in your area with their Dino-cakes on Project Party.

3. It’s All In The Detail

A themed birthday party is all about making sure the details are just right.

Ruby Rabbit Partyware has got the eye for detail so Party Project can pull off the best Dinosaur party possible.

With Dinosaur party decorations, plates, and tableware, guests are going to be blown away on the big day.

4. Jumping Around

With the lollies and cakes, these kids are going to need somewhere to burn all that excess energy.

And weren’t we blown away when we saw local business Bounce O Rama has the perfect Dinosaur jumping castle (a dragon is a type of dinosaur, right? LOL) for our event.

A jumping castle or other physical activities are the best solutions to all that bursting energy kids have.

5. Food, Glorious Food

A party without food is no party at all. Some might even say that food IS the point of the party!

No one wants hungry guests, and we recommend finding the perfect catering for your party to avoid the hassles of cooking and cleaning for large groups.

For the kids, we were lucky to find Pepita's Ice Cream Van adorable ice cream cart to provide the sweetest, tastiest treats on the day.

But don’t forget, it might be a kid's party, but the adults need food too.

For that, we found the gorgeous Cheers Platters from our local area to provide stunning grazing boxes for the hungry adults too.

As an extra tip, why not throw a few plastic dinosaurs in amongst the grazing boxes, or around your food, as an added touch.

6. Take A Seat

With all the dancing, jumping, and partying that goes on at most birthday parties it’s important not to forget to give guests somewhere to recharge.

Luckily AVA Party Hire was available to provide chairs for a much-needed place to rest our legs.

It’s not always something we think of first when planning a party, but believe us you’ll be glad you did when the party’s underway.
