How to Have a Ballerina Ballet Party

August 2009 064

 

My daughter’s 8th birthday party was a Miss Sugar Pops ballerina theme. I found some great ideas on how to have a Ballerina Party at this link

Here are some photos of the party! She chose to have a Miss Sugar Pops theme! She is wearing a Candy Lace So Posh Tutu set by Miss Sugar Pops!

We made our own invitations using pretty cardstock and printed out the details of the party on regular paper and then cut them using pretty cutout scissors.

Inside, it said:

Prima Ballerina (Place Name here) is turning (#)!

Twirl on over to her house to celebrate!

Date:

Place:

Time:

Wear a tutu if you have one, it will be a Miss Sugar Pops theme! You’ll have a tu-tu good time! Please RSVP to (phone # here).

~~~~~~

For her birthday banner, I simply used printer paper, cardstock, and acrylic black paint to customize her name (see photo). Quick, cheap, and fun!  You could even make it larger if you wanted, we just didn’t have big enough cardstock.

For the party, I had two tables: one to display ballerina/princess themed items and to open presents at and the other for use as a crafting station.

On the display table, a ballerina globe was used as part of the decor. You could find a personalized one here. Or there is a musical snow globe here. For other ideas as decor, here are some by the Music Box Company here. We purchased Princess ribbon and ballet themed ribbon at Joann’s as part of the decor. You can kinda see how it was used – I was going for the ballet strap look, but ran out of ribbon. We also bought fresh flowers as the centerpiece. It came wrapped in a pink material, which I folded down against the vase and then tied the princess ribbon around it. Of course, every party needs confetti, which we used silver stars and round dots of different colors (I couldn’t find any ballet confetti at the local shops in town but I am sure there is some, somewhere if you look hard).

Oh, and Starlooks utilized Starbucks! We were out getting the balloons and I decided to get my iced vanilla latte and then while standing in line, I came across this mug that came with a special pen to use for signing the mug. After signing the mug, you bake it for 15 minutes and then it stays permanently! You can see it in the photo below… (scroll down).

~~~~~~

The girls made or decorated and did the following (while classical music such as Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky or The Nutcracker was playing – you can find a great ballet cd here or just make your own playlist):

Princess Crowns.

Princess Wands (which we made using cardstock by tracing a star and then taking bamboo scewers and hot gluing them between two stars).

Diva Mad Libs.

Ballerina coloring pages, including some from Angelina Ballerina.

Facepainting (we used Snazaroo, made in the U.K.)

The girls also had the chance to dance to the instructional ballet DVD, Bella Dancerella. We had two judges set up to see whom could dance the best and there were three girls that won prizes.

Prizes included:

Decorate your own sun catchers – butterfly or rainbow kits ($3.95).

Ballerina Paper Doll book ($7.95).

A Peach change purse (found on sale for $1.00).

A Ballerina ornament ($6.95).

~~~~~~

We had 9 guests and they all were perfect princesses. Everyone also left with goody bags that included the following:

Girly pins (packs of 5), that said Princess, Cutie, or had princess graphics, on sale at Fred Meyer (2/5.00).

Rings (found in a pack of 5 that were actually adjustable toe rings, but they used them on their little fingers – on sale for $3.50 each pack).

Crystal cubic Zirconia earrings (found in a gift box of 3 – on sale for $7.00, we took them out and put them in pink sachet bags we found at Joann’s for 10/1.00).

Handmade magnets – Miss Sugar Pops & Ballerina Slippers with custom initials. See a great illustration on how to make these glass magnets here.

Peace Sign crystal barretts, found on sale in a pack of 4 for $1.00 (each girl got 1).

Headbands (found on sale in a pack of 10/1.00).

Strawberry Whoppers.

Special Dark chocolate Hershey’s Kisses in purple wrap.

Ballerina bookmarks, by Dover Publications.

Laffy Taffy in pink and purle wrap.

Pink and red or purple Jolly Ranchers.

We put all of the goodies in little wedding favor boxes we found at a darling little store, Donna’s Gifts, in town.

It is too bad not everything was made in the USA but a large majority of it was. Not everyone can be perfect but at least I did read labels and was selective in what we purchased!
