A trip down Memory Lane

Last year for Brady's first birthday bash we celebrated Dino style. The party was great! Dinosaur Dig was the theme and what party would be complete with out one...a dig that is. The sand box was roped off to represent a palaeontologist's dream excavation looking for metatarsal bones (mini dog bones) and little dinosaur shaped eggs. Kids that found bones got a larger prize like a Dino coloring book or a large plastic Dino replica. This was my husbands favorite part...just think Ross from friends. :) (I love you babe.)

We also named all of the food after dinosaurs. Then labeled them Carnivores or Herbivores.

The invites were shaped like eggs and a brad held them toghter to reval the invitation on the inside. The front read "Breaking News"!

A few variations on the invite:

And the banner (which matched the invitations) little eggs reading Happy Birthday Brady.

Overall this was one of my favorite themes. So much you can do to have a great party. We even had blow-up dinosaurs scattered around the yard and in plants and trees. Brady loved them. This theme may be repeated in years to come.
