Modern dinosaur 2nd birthday by Jennifer Laura Design

Categories   Kids Birthday Parties

How does little Phoenix follow his first birthday party? With this equally as awesome dino party, planned and designed by his talented mama, Jennifer Laura. She wanted to give the theme a modern look, so she started with a bold pattern and a fresh color palette of varying shades of green.

This triangle pattern is an easy way to add a huge pop to your decor, or even use as a photobooth backdrop, no?

It’s a modern party, so obvs these dinosaur toys had to get a little, colorful makeover to fit the party. It’s a fun project to get the kids involved with too! To turn them into planters, Jennifer drilled a hole in their backs and placed air plants inside.

Jennifer says, “We also made a big sandbox filled with dinosaur bones for a little dino dig, since the kiddos were primarily 2 they had more interest in throwing the sand, but it was all in good fun”.

If you’re wondering where you can score party hats in this color, you can’t. She couldn’t seem to find the right shades of green in a party hat anywhere, do she DIY’d it and hot glued a set of dino spikes to the back.

Such a cool 2nd birthday, little man!

Love how the dinosaur theme can be done in so many ways. This fun dinosaur excavation party we featured a bit ago has a ton of great ideas for the older kiddos.

Anyone know where I can get a cake stand like the one at this party?

Michelle on Aug 5, 2014

Love the design, colors and details!

Hi Rachel! It looks she may have DIY'd them using candlestick holders as the base. Or you can try searching for "wooden cake stands" on Etsy. There's a lot of great finds there too. Good luck!

Does anyone know where these dinosaurs are from? I know this is a DIY project, but there are so many options for plastic dinosaurs out there and I'm sure some work better than others. Would love to know where these guys are from.

Hello, love your party! Can you please tell me where you purchased the cups etc from?

Nicole on Nov 10, 2014

fabulous party! Was the shirt store bought or diy?

Jennifer Laura on Nov 10, 2014

cake stand was a DIY using wood slices and candlesticks, dinos were found at thrift and craft stores, painted, and drilled a hole in the back for the air plant, triangle paper cups were also a DIY- we just used paper to wrap around and glued on, shirt was from Old navy. Here is my blog post with tons more details about everything! http://jenniferlaurablog.com/phoenixs-second-birthday-kristen-curette-photography/
