I am THRILLED to be announcing a giveaway with my new sponsor – More Than a Cupcake…who I refer to as the Birthday Party Miracle Worker. Why is she a miracle worker, you ask? Well….
You may have realized that my kids like to challenge me. Well, my son in particular likes to do this. We will be driving and see 2 deer on the side of the road, he will say, “That’s great, Mommy. Can you find 4 deer now?” My uncle has done Donald Duck impressions for years…every child always asks for more…except my son who says “that’s funny, now do mickey!”
It should have come as no surprise to me when I asked him about his birthday theme that he told me he wanted a dinosaur party, quickly followed up by specifying that it had to be a Dinosaur Train party. If you have not seen the show Dinosaur Train, I would be more than happy to tell you ALL about it someday…but, the gist of it is the Pteranodon Family (Mr. and Mrs. P, Shiny, Tiny, and Don) find a T Rex, Buddy, in their “nest” and adopt him, the Pteranodons and Buddy then travel through the various time periods and learn all about the dinosaurs. Here are Buddy and Tiny…don’t they just look adorable? Honestly, I might be as obsessed with the show as my son is…as usual, I digress…
I completely credit this show with getting my son to eat more fruits and veggies (“don’t you want to be like the really cool herbivore Morris the Stegosaurus???”, says mom), and for getting to know the names of many types of dinosaurs which is actually a pretty fun party trick.
I am assuming that a lot of people have not heard of this show, because it is IMPOSSIBLE to find mass-produced items. A limited number of books, a couple of toys, and a couple of pairs of pajamas have been found in my massive searches over the year or so. We own every Dinosaur Train item out there, and when I heard his request, I knew it was going to be a tough one. I scoured the web, scored a couple of plates and napkins on Amazon and then went to Pinterest for inspiration….and that I found. I was very quickly introduced to More than a Cupcake who was my incredible savior in this hunt. My son was going to have dinosaur train cupcakes (“its my favorite thing mommy – dinosaur train and cupcakes…you can make them, right?!”) and the most adorable birthday banner.
I am partnering up with More Than A Cupcake so that you will win the themed cupcake topper and birthday banner of your choice. I am really excited about this giveaway – the quality and creativity of this store is going to blow you away as well! Seriously – check this out…
For this giveaway, I would love to hear what party you are planning next in your house, and what your theme is! We are using Rafflecopter for the first time on MMB, so you will see that there are a lot of other ways to win as well – let’s just say though….check out MMB and More Than a Cupcake on FaceBook, Twitter, and as always share the fun with your friends who are not yet fans!
