Colorful Dinosaur Party Ideas for Girls

Girls like dinosaurs too!

I never got why boys were always the ones having the dinosaur and ninja themed parties, and girls always had to have the spa or princess themed parties. That is just absurd! Girls can like dinosaurs, ninjas, and event racing themed parties too.

And so to honor the strong, confident girls around the world who want to celebrate among dinos, I have put together this week’s inspiration board, for them. The concept was to have a colorful dinosaur birthday party for girls, which was not completely pink, purple and full of gentility.

But you know what I found? It’s actually pretty hard to find dinosaur themed birthday party posts for girls that are not full of princess crowns, tutus, and bright pink. So I thought I would incorporate lots of vibrant colors throughout to make this event perfect for the dino loving little girl that could care less about a tiara and a doesn’t mind what color her dinosaur friends are.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Elaborate Serenity Blue Hydrangea Wedding Ideas

Serenity or Rose Quartz? If you had to pick one, which would it be?

If you aren’t sure what I’m talking about, let me fill you in. The 2016 Pantone Color of the Year is actually two colors: Serenity and Rose Quartz. Check them out here if you haven’t seen them already.

I can’t say I normally would have opted to use either of those colors in anything I normally do, but you know I like a good challenge. This week I set forth with the challenge to do an elaborate wedding in the tricky color: Serenity. From what I see, Serenity is a periwinkle blue-purple that is cool and very soft. Loving the softness of the color, I decided to put together an over-the-top wedding inspiration board for you this week, full of soft colors and delicate hydrangeas.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Frozen Icicle Holiday Party Ideas

It’s SNOWING!

Hah, I wish! Here in Florida we can only dream of snow. There is no snow in sight for us, but there is PLENTY of sun to go around. I’ve never even seen snow, but that’s part of the deal of being born and raised in Florida. I hope to see it someday. I have heard it can be absolutely magical when it is lightly drifting down from the sky.

Until I get to see snow, I will continue to dream about snowy, winter wonderland party scenes. This week, I’m imagining a snowy icicle inspired holiday party. Here’s what I’m dreaming of:

Birthday Bear Picnic Ideas for National Teddy Bear Day

I just love it when I discover unusual holidays I never knew existed. In fact, today’s party idea board was inspired by “Teddy Bear Day”, which is apparently celebrated today, September 9. I took it one step further and turned this into a picnic party. Originally I wanted to go for a sleep over theme, but after reading about how there is actually a Teddy Bear Picnic Day (in July) I just had to create something marvelous around that.

Just about all of these elements could easily be translated indoors or outdoors. A few white sheets and some kid friendly snacks can make for quite the play party out in a local park, or even in your back yard. This is a classic, year round party theme you can’t go wrong with.

Here’s what I had in mind, and be warned….cuteness incoming!

It’s Written in the Stars – Astronomy Themed Wedding

A few weeks ago I shared a party idea board for an under the stars backyard movie night. If you missed it, check it out here.

I absolutely loved the theme of the party, and just couldn’t stop thinking about how beautiful a wedding in a science museum or planetarium would be. Something under the stars, but without the bugs and heat. That was all I needed for inspiration – the next thing I knew I had found some fabulous inspirational images and compiled them into this idea board:

Mermaid + Merman Under the Sea Summer Party

This week I knew exactly what I wanted to create when I sat down to make this week’s party idea board. I wanted something that would be fun for kids, boys and girls, and would be a hit this summer. I came up with the idea of having a mer-people (that’s mermaids and mermen) inspired party. Naturally, it would be fantastic if this was based around a beach location, but I think a pool party would be just as fun.

Here’s what I had in mind:
