Ballerina Birthday Tea Party

My oldest daughter wanted to have another big birthday party this year. Ella loves to dance and most of her friends are in her dance class as well. 
I love to craft and sew, so I tend to go a little overboard when I throw a party. I make my own decorations, food, cakes which make the party within a reasonable budget. Here is what I made.
For decorations I used pink and pink/white damask tablecloths, I made pink tulle pom-poms and strung them with yarn, a few balloons from the dollar store, dress form necklace holders with hand stamped necklaces (party favor), ballet shoe wall hanging, dress form with a pink tutu, vanity with mirror with a pink tray with lace crowns (party favor), and a cake stand I made from an old chandelier. Here is the tutorial that I followed
For the food I made 5 small cakes with pink rosette frosting, pink cake pops, marshmallow wands, and pirouette cookie sticks. It was also a tea party so we had antique teacups and plates, served with pink lemonade. The girls loved it!
Crafts. We had had pink party bags and each girl got to decorate their bag. There was a lot of markers, crayons, stamps, stickers, glue, and glitter! Then we made beaded bracelets with a ballerina tutu charm.
For party favors I made lace crowns and  hand stamped initial necklaces with a pink gem.


  1. awesome!!! your DIY projects are really incredible..

  2. Glad to know about this event and these are really good pictures of the event. Couple of months ago, I arranged my daughter’s birthday by booking one of the luxurious LA venues. Invited all our family and friends and celebrated the birthday in grand fashion.
