Dino Might

Jessica Flannigan of Maple Grove — author of the Live the Fancy Life blog — knows how to throw gorgeous parties. Her oldest son Bodhi’s third birthday party this past spring was no  exception, even though she was starting her third trimester of pregnancy during the planning.

She simply went store-bought (mostly Target, even the cake) except for a few custom-printed items by Sarah Maiga Designs on Etsy. She painted plastic dinosaurs white for decorations and used only the cake-topper letters she needed from HOORAY to spell ROAR. Then she splurged on teeny-tiny cookies by Susan Howell, also on Etsy, and a backyard bouncy house for the kids.
