Any dinosaur party will become more complete with some dino-themed food, snacks, and desserts! Transform your party space into a prehistoric world. Hang green and brown streamers or balloons to mimic the jungle. Place inflatable or cardboard dinosaur cutouts around the room. You can also use faux foliage, rocks, and bones to create a dinosaur habitat. Don’t forget to check out some party decorations for a Three-Rex party, but really a dino theme is a fabulous idea for any age!

Labels for your Carno-Snacks

First off, you’re going to want to plan your menu and then make or order some of these editable food labels. If you’re not into DIY, these are super easy to use and edit for your party. You can use the template and create labels for each of your food items.
