"I am girly...hear me ROAR" ~ A Pink Dino Party!

Party planning gets me crazy excited and like most designers, I work great under pressure!  That said, when I found out that Jenn (One of my local superchicks!) had 3 DAYS to plan her daughter Lanna's 4th birthday party, I was giddy and up for some chaos!  I LOVE a challenge don't you  know!  Plus, I SO knew we could crank out this event in 3 days!  
Seriously lovelies, no need to shy away from planning a party in a pinch!  Sometimes, they're the best kind!!!  No joke GFs, this "Posh Party Post" encapsulates a mere 3 days of planning, crafting and staging!  Enjoy!  I sure did!  

Theme ~  "I am girly...hear me ROAR" ~ A Pink Dino Party! 
Color palette ~ pinks and greens
 Birthday girl ~ LANNASAURUS!



The color palette for this event was inspired by pretty pink and green scrapbooking paper!  LOVED the zany print!  First, I created a super sweet "Lannasaurus" banner and fun cupcake toppers!  I glittered the tiny paper dinos and embellished the toppers with pearls!  {Cuz pleeezzz... we all know that everything is lovelier when glittered!!!} The Webkinz Bubblegumasaurus image was found by doing a google search, for "cute pink dinosaur"!  No time to create my own so this was the next best thing!  I altered her slightly to soften her up!  She turned out gor~geous!  Look at her rockin the "dig'em up" buckets and treat bags?!!
My daughter Sophie loved the dinosaur hats we found at our local $Store!  All we did to princess them up was add a giant floppy pink flower!!!  I made straw tags and water bottle wraps with the leftover paper!  The straw flags needed a touch of bling so I added tiny pink crystals!  We used Lanna's toy dinos as props which was brilliant if i do say so myself!!!  The dinosaur eggs are actually washcloths!  (They were also purchased at the $Store!)  The favor bags were filled with dino-inspired treats which I knew the kids would love!  Skewer up some dino shaped chicken nuggets a few tasty snack and voil√†... You've got yourself a roaring "pink Dino Party" for a fab little chica! 

~ Happy 4th birthday Lannasaurus!!!  I'm so glad you enjoyed your special day! ~

Love it. My favorite element is that you put a coordinating round paper decoration in the middle of the paper plate. I do that on my cake plates, but it NEVER occured to me to put them on the paper plates too. ADORABLE!! Great job momma!
