The Best Dinosaur Birthday Party Supplies

A dinosaur theme for a birthday party gives so many opportunities to use unique decorations and have some wild activities and games. There are so many unique ways to use standard decor like trees, jungle plants and balloon arches to make an entire themed environment. We want to share some of our favorite decorating ideas and supplies.



There are so many creative ideas for how to use balloons to enhance your party into an immersive setting.  You could use a red balloon arch to simulate lava flowing out of a volcano, blue balloons for underwater Jurassic dinosaurs, or green balloons for a forest or jungle setting.

Party Sets

Party sets are a great way to put together an easy matching party scene.

Party Table Decorations

Table centerpieces make a really interactive center for birthday activities, like coloring pages or for cake time.  Table confetti ties the whole creation together.  Having dinosaurs and trees throughout the table with confetti of dinosaur tracks brings the table to life. 


It’s not a party without dessert.  Why not use the cake and cupcakes as a decoration too?  Set up a cute dessert table and let treats be a highlight in the room.    For cake and cupcake ideas and supplies check out our post Dinosaur Cakes and Cupcakes.

Sage and MI is based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, a notorious location for fighter jet flyovers from Naval Air Station Oceana.  We LOVE jet noise and the aircraft too.  To share our appreciation of our local aircraft and our excitement for the release of Top Gun Maverick we would like to present to you our latest post, F-18 Hornets and Super Hornets Navy Jet Aircraft Cakes and Cupcakes.

We want to share the best ideas and supplies to ensure any jet enthusiast has the aviation dessert of their dreams.  Perfect for any celebration.


A perfect idea for an F-18 jet-themed cake is to create a runway or flight deck design for your cake surface and place jet aircraft figures on top.

You can also make an F-18 cake topper with fondant, like the one in the video shown below.

The fondant model in this video is our absolute favorite do-it-yourself jet cake creation.  Especially since you can customize the F-18 you create with a pilot name, just like on a real jet!  This is the perfect personalization factor.  The tutorial shows the final aircraft on a cake resembling the sky.  However, you can always place it on a flight deck scene instead.
