Pink Dino Party - The Invites

Well . . . my daughter's turning four (I can't believe it!) and has informed me that she would like a pink dinosaur party this year. A little unorthodox, I know . . . but she's the birthday girl.

I'm finding that I'm going to have to pull this thing together mostly from scratch. There aren't a whole lot of pink dino's out there. Not a popular choice among the girls . . . but that's OK.

I have to tell you that at first I was opposed to the whole dinosaur party theme but it's actually grown on me. I've discovered that dinosaurs can be fun . . . and cute. Yes cute. As I was hopelessly searching the internet for pink dinosaurs, I miraculously came across this. The cutest dinosaurs I've ever seen, and pink too! Thank you Holly!

Now that I had some inspiration I created these:

Cute for dinosaurs, right? I'm just thrilled with them.

I used some coordinating scrapbook paper, cut out and pieced everything together. I then scanned them onto my computer and printed them out to create invitations and cupcake toppers. The font I used is called "Action Is" that I down loaded from

Want to see the final product?

Mission accomplished!

Stay tuned for the rest of the birthday festivities to come . . .


  1. How adorable! And you are super creative. I'm planning my daughter's three year party, what to do???? Dinos maybe? Actually, we're doing a nantucket big girl room, so we were going to have a party around that same theme and reveal her room to her at her party. NOw, I just need to get creative!!

  2. Love, love, LOVE this!!!! My daughter will be turning 5 in October and has been obsessed with dinosaurs since late last year...having a "dinosaur 5 birthday" is regularly talked about, so thank you for sharing how you put a girly spin on dinos! Like you said, not a popular choice with the girls, but hey...I've had to make special dino shirts, dino wall art, etc. Maybe some company will pick up on this trend sometime soon??? :)

  3. My daughter wants the same thing! She is also turning 4. Thanks for posting all this, it was a lifesaver!

  4. My daughter's turning 3 and wants the same thing - glad to see we're not alone! Thanks for the inspiration :)

  5. Oh these are lovely, can't wait to do some hand-made invites for my kids birthday!
