Zac's 5th Birthday

Party Recap

In November I announced a competition on my blog. I wanted to throw the ultimate Birthday Party for a child that needed a party due to not being able to have one because they were of ill health. I got lots of entries but I decided to choose Renee's email. Her son Zac was turning 5 and he had a Heart condition and a mild form of Autism. He had only started Kinda that year and had never had a birthday party with friends. My dear friend Jennifer Birkhead allowed Renee to choose a Party Pack from her themed invitation range and Zac choose Dinosaurs. So Dino's it was! I travelled 2 hours to style a party for Zac and his friends and then travelled 2 hours home...and I loved every minute of it!! xx

    Great party! I'm using a lot of your ideas as inspiration for my son's dinosaur themed 3rd birthday party. Where did you get this great dinosaur centerpiece? It would be great in his room after the party! Thanks....Katie
