As soon as Billie started to crawl, she quickly morphed into a kind of cave baby.
Unlike her sister, who rarely moved unless she had to, Billie would scuttle anywhere and everywhere. Causing disruption and chaos in her wake. Usually chomping on scraps of food she’s found on the floor. Lobbing objects in frustration. Scowling and growling at anything she didn’t like, or did like, who knew?
She was, and still is, the baby who would be found climbing everything that wasn’t laden with barbed wire. Always leaping from something. Giving me a heart attack as she would leap off furniture. Just assuming that someone would be there quick enough to catch her.
It was hardly surprising when she started taking a liking to Dinosaurs and perfecting her ROOAARR! Which is why
It was a just small affair with close family at our home. Good thing too as her birthday coincided with the day she came down with the chickenpox. So she wasn’t a very happy dinosaur all day bless her. But she still had fun, enjoyed her rainbow cake and lots of cuddles with her Nanny.
Billie’s Dinosaur Birthday Party
As we weren’t throwing a big party, I kept things low key, which wasn’t easy for the event planner in me. Especially once I fell into a Pinterest rabbit hole and started adding ideas to my Dinosaur Party Board. So I kept it really simple and budget-friendly and low key.

We added a few extra touches to the food table, such as a faux grass runner which I’d picked up from the Pound Shop around Easter time, but there’s a similar one here. I then scattered some toy dinosaurs over the food which we got from Asda and Argos. The Roar plates and napkins were also from Asda and these Dinosaur Balloons were a great touch too.
In keeping with our theme, I then ordered these personalised Good Dinosaur Thank You cards to give to family and friends for their kind birthday gifts.
