Donuts & Dinos Birthday Party

This year I decided to have a joint birthday party for my son and daughter since their birthdays are 5 days apart. I loved the idea of the donut theme for my daughter since this was her first birthday. My son turned three and is really into dinosaurs. So we had a Donuts & Dinos themed birthday party.

I had SO MUCH fun with this party (with lots of materials to work with).

I had to make some of the items myself. They sell dinosaur and donut stuff EVERYWHERE. I actually got a lot of my supplies from the Hobby Lobby and Amazon.

“Donuts & Dinos” Display Table

One of my favorite parts about having a party is the display table. I just love working on them. This one was a lot of fun to do.

I used this recipe from Mama Knows Gluten Free for the donuts. They turned out so good!

I also made these cute T-shirts and onesie for myself, my son and my daughter. I just bought t-shirts from Hobby Lobby and used SVG files that I designed to cut out on iron-on vinyl. My daughters onesie I used a PNG file that I designed and used printable iron-on vinyl. It was super easy and they turned out so cute. Click on each photo to shop the SVG files on my Etsy shop.

I absolutely loved how this party theme turned out! It was so much fun having a joint birthday party for my kids! Hopefully you can take away some good ideas from me. I'd love to see how your party turns out!
