In my previous blog, I talked about how I and my client Christina organized a dino party in a hurry. If you liked those dinosaur party ideas, you will definitely like the below mentioned suggestions for making Dino theme invitation. Read below for an interesting and unique idea for making an invite that will excite the guests about your prehistoric party.
While searching for the dinosaur party supplies, we liked the cups, plates, balloons, but not the invites. Most of them were too simple and generic. The dinosaur egg invite is a very frequently used idea. You can buy large plastic dino eggs and write your party details on it. Although they will be a great addition to your dinosaur themed party, some innovations can make them look better.
I and Melissa made the eggs at home to give them a unique look. At first, we wrote our party message on a piece of white paper, rolled it to make a tube, and then slipped this tube inside a flat balloon. Once done, we inflated the balloon and closed its nozzle.
We made a paper Mache paste by mixing flour and water. Making the right consistency was difficult; we reached the perfect consistency after 3 trials. Once it was ready, we dipped torn newspaper scrap in it and pasted them on the balloon in 2-3 layers. After drying, it was looking like a real Dino egg that is about to crack. We pasted a sticky paper on the eggs and wrote ‘crack me open’ so that the invitees know there is something inside it.
Christina and Melissa hand delivered it to the invitees and, believe me, two of them didn’t want to blow up the balloon. Christina had to give them one more for blowing up and reading the message. Kids are truly unpredictable.
