Dinosaur Birthday


Eames turned ONE!

And we threw him the cutest dinosaur themed party ever!

Would you believe I was SO last minute with the planning? Thankfully it all came together with the help of our coordinators and AMAZON! Who knew decor I bought on Amazon could look so cute!?! Balloon garland was assembled by Love Anne Joy.

We purchased several inflatable dinosaurs for the party but my favorite was this 6ft t-rex at the entrance!

WILD ONE balloons looked so good against the hedge wall! Incredible balloon garland assembled by our coordinators.

The cutest dinosaur cookies ever! I always order my custom cookies from April’s Sweet Creations. They are always perfect and they taste great, too.

We had several toy dinos sprinkled throughout the venue, and the kids went wild collecting them!

Smash cake was also done by April’s Sweet Creations! Emil requested that his smash cake be an egg, and of course April did not disappoint! She totally nailed it!

This little sign has been so handy for our parties! Love that we can just switch up the message for any occasion and it always looks so fun and modern.

My sister helped with this adorable display. I calligraphed the monstera leaves with his monthly photos. 🙂

I owe this all to my mom, who lovingly sourced and potted each and every centerpiece. These were not tiny little pots either, each one was unique and beautiful and was the perfect little habitat for the dinos!

Can never go wrong with these balloons!! We had tons of wall space at the venue, and it was the perfect blank canvas to decorate with. You can’t really tell in the photo, but to the left of those balloons, we projected the Land Before Time movie during the party.

Our big boy!

Truly cannot believe how quickly this year has gone by. Just so in awe and so proud of our little guy!


Honestly, I should have known my gentle little dude would not be into actually smashing the cake, but I couldn’t resist. He didn’t love the feeling of the frosting on his hands, haha. He was also a bit confused as to why everyone was singing and flashing their phones at him…

A little birthday tradition that we turned into a fun little raffle.

He picked the toothbrush, which surprised both Emil and I, because he refuses to brush his teeth at home.

That’s it! Special thanks to the awesome vendor team that made it all happen!
