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:

2016 – Year of the Monkey….. and BANANAS – Baby Shower Ideas

Did you know 2016 is the year of the monkey?

Well, if not, now you know!

I know it isn’t a literal meaning, as in monkey themed things will just pop up, but I couldn’t help being inspired by cute little monkeys and bananas. I thought I’d put together an adorable baby shower (or birthday party) inspired by cute jungle monkeys and bananas. Lots of brown and yellow elements of course, but I would love to incorporate a banana scent into the party room so it was just subtle enough to be noticed. And of course, if space permitted: large, leafy tropical foliage plants.

Here’s what I had in mind:

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!

Puppy Party Ideas for Mutt’s Day 2015

Hello and happy Wednesday! The inspiration board for this week is inspired by Mutt’s Day. Apparently, July 31 is the official day to celebrate your mutt! When I read about this unusual but fun holiday, I knew there was going to be an idea board put together inspired by the holiday.

This week’s idea board could really go a few ways: as a party for welcoming a new mutt to your home, an adoption party (for stuffed animals of course!), or a puppy party – with the kids getting to wear cute puppy ear headbands, play puppy games, etc.

Here’s what I had in mind:
