Welcome back! I hope everyone had a great weekend. We were running all over with baseball, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Did I tell you my Little Man was awarded the game ball after his very first game?! So proud!
Last week I revealed the Dinosaur Party we had for my son's 4th birthday. Wow. Four.
If you missed any of that, you can find the cookie favors here, menu here, and volcano cupcakes here.
Today I'm sharing the decor. It was pretty easy and very DIY. I started with some clearance Target party pennant banners.
I have three so I used them in the entryway...
In the dining room...
and on the mantle.
On a whim, I decided it would be fun to make giant dinosaurs. I bought big white poster boards and drew a T-Rex, Triceratops, and Brontosaurus on them.
To tie them in with the fun patterns on the pennants, I rugby striped and polka dotted them in coordinating colors. I was pretty happy with how they turned out!
Two dinos stood on the dining room hutch to welcome out little guests.
The T-Rex took over the mantle.
Once the dinos were up, I felt they needed to a little something. Actually, I felt they needed to be saying something, so I used some leftover poster board and made three quote bubbles. Then, I spray painted each bubble with chalkboard paint.
The Tri and Bronti say "Roar!" and "He's 4!"
Rexxy says "Happy Birthday Japhasaurus!"
They were very easy, and made a great impact. And, they're reusable!
Of course, I had to pull out my balloon wreath again.
I just changed the circle label to say "Happy Fourth Birthday".
Fresh flowers are always a must for any party. I got mine at Kroger and split them up to make 2 bouquets. I had the vases already.
Little absolutely LOVES balloons. Actually, I've never heard of anyone who loves them more than he does. So, naturally we had out own balloon tank and blew up a ton of balloons.
We also took a trip to the store where he got to pick out his own Dino balloon. Very exciting.
Tomorrow, I'll break down the birthday tablescape I put together, as well as the birthday mantle.
See you then!
