Organised by: Vanessa, William’s mum
Location: At home, Sydney
Invitation: T Rex Dinosaur invitations that I made myself.
Donna Hay-inspired Dinosaur cake. This really formed the inspiration for the party. It was a fabulous 400mmx400mm chocolate cake from Zest Patisserie decorated with a plywood dinosaur, liquorice fence and flake chocolate bars.
Donna Hay pizzas-on-a-stick - these were super-easy and quite filling. I also made homemade popcorn in individual cups, jelly in baking cups tppped with The Natural Confectionery Co. dinosaurs, handmade gingerbread men from Zest Patisserie, watermelon balls, grapes and sea salt chips.
Paper Eskimo bunting - I have used this bunting a few times and although tedious to string together, they pack down to nothing to use another time. Wooden cutlery, Paper Eskimo party hats and paper straws, IKEA paper cups, plates and napkins. Dinosaur Piñata.
Zest Patisserie to supply the plain base chocolate cake. I then simply made the plywood Dinosaur (a few weeks ahead) and decorated it the night before.
Something special: William saw the bare cake in the box the day before his party. He was so excited to see the transformed Dinosaur cake the next morning!
