real party: Dinosaur Party

January 4, 2011

We love this sweet dinosaur party that invitation designer Jill Smith threw for her son’s 2nd birthday.

Jill designs a line of cards for Tiny Prints and created this sweet invitation for the party.  The invitation included an insert asking for books as gifts.

Jill wanted to have a simple celebration filled with the memories of her childhood parties – backyards, homemade cakes, sprinklers and kids playing freely – we love that and couldn’t agree more!  She made much of the decor and splurged on hiring a photographer.

How fun is this sidewalk chalk decor for the entrance? Fun, festive + easy on the wallet!

Fantastic homemade cake (inspired by this cake) and sweet birthday hats!

Jill bought the blank favor bags here and painted them (super cute!!),

Thanks for sharing, Jill! We love this party that we’re sure you’re little guy will look back at it very fondly for many years to come.
