This is what Tami said about planning the party- “My 5 year old is a obsessed with ballet! She was so excited to have her very own ballet class at her house with a little ballet recital for all her friends and their parents.
The invitation told the parents to come near the end of the party to attend a ballet recital and to enjoy cake and treats with us. My daughter’s ballet teacher came dressed up in her pointe shoes and tutu just like a real ballerina:). She led the girls in ballet basics, games and in a darling little ballet dance that they performed for their parents.

This party was all about the little details. I tried to add touches of those details everywhere making the party full of magic and elegance. One of my favorite things was the touches of ribbon and tulle that we added everywhere from the pool gate down to the napkins. I loved the glittery tulle that we added to the napkins that gave it the perfect little touch.

As the ballerinas arrived, they were led to our backyard by a sign that was made by Michelle Tucker from Little Design Company that read “Dance recital this way”. They were then led through the back yard on a path created with ribbons and lanterns. Once they arrived in the backyard, the focal point was the dance stage. I didn’t want to spend a crazy amount of money on renting a stage, so I came up with the idea to turn our trampoline upside down and turn it into the stage. It worked perfectly and it was just the right size for all the little dancers. After all the dancers had arrived we walked to the ballet bar where each little ballerina got their own tutu. I borrowed the ballet bar from 5678 dance studio in Modesto CA.

The ballerinas had fun dancing for a while and took a break over at “The Ballet Bar” (the dessert table) They also found their darling little wands on their plates and enjoyed having their yummy little treats and taking a small break.
After all of the parents arrived, the girls put on their ballet recital and then onto gifts and cupcakes. It was so cute and the girls had such a great time!”
