Max's Dinosaur Party


This part of the year is such a busy time for us with Lincoln and Max's birthdays only two weeks apart. So when it comes to their parties I generally start planning months in advance, which means when they'e all over I get such a great feeling of satisfaction!

For Max's dinosaur party we packed everything we needed into our little car and drove three hours up the coast to Sean's parents place. Max's big request this year was to have his party at his Nona's place. A lot of our friends (and their kids) live up in Hervey Bay so it made sense to us and we granted his sweet little wish :).






Way back when I first started planning his party I came across these dinosaur cookie cutters and fell in love. I suggested a dino party to Max and was so excited when he said yes! I saved all my inspiration and ideas on Pinterest and am so happy with how it all ended up coming together. Shortly after we had everything set up and ready to go it started to rain so we had a quick relocation from the garden to the house, it was still perfect though. A fun day was had by all, especially Max who absolutely loved being the centre of attention for the day!

  5. I adore every single little detail, Tamsyn! Just gorgeous! Will be stealing all these ideas for the next time I do a dinosaur party. Two birthdays close together is always chaos (two of mine are 6 days apart) and just before Christmas- yikes! Well done! Sarah : )
