We’re wild about this prehistoric party all the way from NZ!
Forget a Frozen-themed party (way overdone) or a Disney Princess party (#sohistoric!) – take a walk on the wild side and check out this incredible Jurassic Park birthday for one lucky little girl!
Challenging traditional gender party themes, this baby pink, gold + iridescent archaeological wonderland was achieved by mum Esa from Dreamcatcher and Co Styling for her daughter Hannah.
Set in a luxury estate in New Zealand (FYI: this venue can be hired for your private party or event!), the space was transformed into a picnic space complete with ghost chairs, cushions, and decals by Millie's Custom Designs.
An information map with multiple activity ‘sites’ was situated at the entrance of the party and included all the fun party details of what to expect upon entering Hannah's Jurassic Park party. From a Chocolate Lava Volcano to a kids colouring table, selfie photo booth station, and a candy floss machine on wheels, it was the perfect setup for future palaeontologists!
A giant floral '5' by Blooms with Gi was set up front and centre next to the lagoon pool (and you can bet the kids enjoyed a dip in its crystal clear waters on such a hot day!) The cascading pink balloon explosion was also an incredible touch.
We love parties that truly incorporate the theme into every element – so, what kind of dessert is better suited to a Jurassic Park birthday than a geode cake!? Those pink and white rock crystals are #DIVINE! Sweetbites Cakes, you have truly outdone yourself on this one!
Of course, we must mention the phenomenal efforts of Macaron Heaven, Magnolia Kitchen, Love Sweets NZ, and Flour Flower who collaboratively created 300+ desserts for the hungry little dinosaurs to devour: we see macarons, custom chocolate bars, crystal cakesicles, marshmallows, dino egg cupcakes + cookies, and coconuts!
And, check out that adorable BFF swing set. We think this will be a feature at many more parties to come!
What’s a kid’s party without a good DIY craft project? Esa tells us that she spray-painted dinosaur toys entirely in gold and added the facial sticker jewellery! The dinosaurs were peppered around the event space to tie in the theme. How clever!
Each little party guest also got to take home a party box, courtesy of LENZO supplier Ruby Rabbit Partyware.
LENZO loves a party tip – what was Esa’s?
“Be passionate about what you do! So much joy will come from it!”
We have a feeling that Hannah and her party guests will remember this day for years to come! As Dr. John Hammond once said, “Your journey in Jurassic World may take a few hours, but your memories will last a lifetime!”
Love, LENZO x
