We were so excited when Rachelle & Kenwood Lay of the award winning Simple Finance Solutions asked us to design their son’s Dinosaur Party. Ethan was turning 5, his baby brother Elton was turning 1 and what a fun party we were going to plan for these adorable little boys.
With everything from ‘dinosaur’ themed jelly ‘dino digs’, ‘tree trunks..a.k.a brownies’, jungle bites and dino droppings to a realistic looking dinosaur cake on the Dessert Table, Rachelle & Kenwood were thrilled to surprise their boys with a Dino-mite birthday party that would make the kids ‘Roar’ with excitement.
With over 100 guests attending the dinosaur themed function at Geckos Family Fun Centre, the day turned out to be dino-rific! Ethan & Elton had 35 little guests who were all ready to play party games, indoor glow in the dark putt-putt golf, laser tronics, ball tronics and go crazy on the 3 storey playground.
Rachelle Lay is an amazing mum who would do anything for her precious boys and when she came to Marabous with a vision to create a dream party, we were so excited to help make her vision a reality. Rachelle wanted a party that her sons would absolutely love and be excited to share with all their friends and family.
The party room was filled with a buzz of drama and excitement with the soundtrack from Jurassic Park filtering through the surround sound system, the gushing sounds of the flowing waterfall and the over abundance of foliage and greenery to set the mood.
There were dinosaurs everywhere! Peeking out of plants, on top of cakes, even in the middle of all the tables that were lined with black satin. The edible table centrepieces were perfect for little fingers with yummy cheeto chips as part of the dinosaur landscape.
The dinosaur dessert table was lavishly filled with gourmet cupcakes decorated with grass-like icing and topped with chocolate moulded dinosaurs, Dino Cake Pops, Dino Dumps, Dinosaur Ginger Bread Cookies and a colour themed Lolly Bar stretching over a 6 metre buffet.
Dinosaur Green, Sunset Orange, Earthy Brown and Black was the perfect colour theme combination for this amazing kids party!
During the cake cutting the party guests were delighted to see the delicious mudcake centre in the middle of what some thought was a dinosaur sculpture! Cake Star did an amazing job of creating the life like, showstopping Dinosaur cake.
The extravagant party favours included inflatable dinosaurs, grow your own dinosaurs in hatchable eggs, all beautifully put together with personalised ‘thankyou’ tags from Ethan & Elton.
Happy Birthday boys!
