Invite: Dinosaur Birthday Party Invitation (Free Printable)

Speaking of's about time for Audrey's. And this year we've settled on a dinosaur party! My daughter is definitely her own girl. I'm taking a more scaled down approach this year (last year's party was quite the opposite) but am as excited as ever about the invitations. As I've said before, it seems the latest is always my favorite...

I really didn't want to go the scary route with the dinos and I always love color so I picked an IKEA striped fabric (I've got plans for it too) for inspiration and went with stripes and stars with the tyrannosauras rex as the real star. I love all these colors together! They are so summery and energetic. And I hope appropriate for both the girls and the boys we are inviting. What do you think? Generic enough?

My favorite part is the envelope! I think I could stare at it for a while. I don't know what it is but the colors and patterns just make me smile. I've always been a sucker for pretty packages!

I've created a customizable version in PDF for you. Any dinosaur party plans in your future?  There's an invitation, envelope, thank you card, and another envelope set up so you can print the whole batch double-sided. You can of course just print a few of the pages, and single-sided if you prefer. You'll need the latest version of Adobe Reader to type your information into the form fields and save the file. Then print at your local print shop on bright, white cardstock (I had my shop scale the images to fit the letter-sized paper which reduced the margins a bit and resulted in a slightly larger card and envelope--nice!), cut out and assemble and mail.

I love how your little girl is her own!
Stand your ground Little one!

Love the cards too.
Too bad my boys' birthdays are all still so far away.
But, a great idea to come back to.
Thank you for sharing!
have a great weekend.

Oh my boys would have loved this when they were little. My youngest (soon to be 15) was a dinosaur for Halloween when he was 3, he slept in his costume for a month, so cute.
Happy Weekend,

oh, gorgeous! My daughter had a dinosaur party for her third birthday, and finding printables that weren't overtly male, or over girlified (she did NOT want pink!) was really hard. I eventually found a great set in pale blue, purple and green which everyone loved, but this would have been great too - so much colour!!! The kid's favourite things were the blown up dinos (from Oriental Trading) and my tags for the food - they loved being 'carnivores', 'herbivores' and 'sweetivores' LOL!

These are brilliant. We have a striped Ikea duvet cover, it feels very similar to me.

I'm sure you've seen the ideas on Pinterest for making dinosaur favour rocks, eg:

Can't wait to hear how the party goes. Thanks for the printables.

Oh thank you for sharing this invite! My 5 yr old is having a birthday in January and is having yet another dinosaur party and I've been blank in the creativity dept! This is just what I was looking for, thank you!

Thank you very much!
The design is lovely and very original. Thanks for sharing your amazing talent with mums-not-so-talented like me :)
I'll used them for my son's 4th birthday party next month.

The download isn't working for me. Are the invitations no longer available as a free download? I'd really love to use them for a dinosaur party that's coming up. Thanks.
