Here’s what Mindy had to say about planning this party- “My 3 year old daughter is such a girly girl who loves to wear dresses, sing and dance around, pretend to do makeup, carry purses, wear jewelry and of course she loves princesses. So, what was more fitting than a Pink Princess Ballerina Birthday Party full of sparkle and glitter??
The party took place at our local dance studio where the invitation and my daughter’s party outfit set the theme for the rest of the decorations. It was all about pink, sparkle, glitter, stars, tulle and of course being princesses and ballerinas!
At each place setting, the 3-5 year olds were served star shaped sandwiches, a fruit cup, pink popcorn, pink M&Ms and pink velvet cupcakes. All the girls had so much fun!”

The Angelina Ballerina chocolate pops
The ombre rose cake
This is what Astir said about the party- “To celebrate the birthday of Maria Sabrina, the theme was Angelina Ballerina. There were many flowers, lace and pearls. The delicate party was organized to celebrate the little lady who insisted on a cake to sing Happy Birthday!”

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!”

So many gorgeous party details and ideas here! Some of my favorite elements of this Paris themed ballet party are:

The Eiffel Tower cupcake toppers
The favor boxes with the Eiffel Tower graphics
This is what Sasha said about planning the party- “The theme of the party was Parisian chic, and our colour palette was shades of pink with black and white. The beautifully styled sweets table was by Tara of Cupcakes by Tara and was dressed with my Fairy Floss Pink Table Tutu. It featured delectable delights such as Strawberry Macarons, Raspberry Truffle Eiffel Tower cupcakes, a selection of sweet filled apothecary jars, cheesecake pops and heart shaped coconut ices. There was a lot of tutu twirling fun to be had!!”
