Ideas for a Ballerina Birthday Party

After having taken my daughter to the most beautiful Ballerina Tea Party my very talented friend Lisa threw for her little girl's birthday last weekend, I came back so inspired seeing all the gorgeousness that I could not resist getting onto the Internet and look for further ideas as soon as I got home!

Unfortunately Lisa's party photos are not yet ready but I thought I would share some of the very dainty and pretty ideas I found - stuff little girls dreams are made of ...

Some of the essentials for a ballerina party:

  • Be prepared to dress your home in an all-pink theme (!)
  • Pink popcorn
  • Pink lemonade
  • Super pretty cupcakes
  • Yards and yards of pink tulle!
  • A bit of OTT-ness

Recipe for Pink Popcorn

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp salt

Boil ingredients together for 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Then add 1 tsp Vanilla and any food colouring of your choice. Remove from heat, pour over 2-3 batches of air-popped popcorn and stir until completely coated. Spread popcorn out on counter top to cool completely.

Part of the beauty of this theme (apart from the theme itself) is that you can pick one of the many adaptations: vintage, pink and gold, pink and silver, French, Nutcracker, Angelina Ballerina etc
