I’m wrapping up my vacation and am really thankful for lots of quality time with my family and rest! While poring through emails, I found an email from Khali of Little Lovely from Australia. She created a roaring prehistoric dinosaur party for her 2 year old son Hunter. I love the bunting on the cake, the dinosaur feet, dinosaur cupcake toppers, and egg straws.
