Ballerina Birthday Party and a Giveaway!

girls ballerina birthday party

I'm so excited today to share with you Claire's ballerina birthday party! Lonni from L. Olson Designs worked with me to create the most adorable printables for her party. She also designed the printables for my sister's Elephant's on Parade baby shower a few months back so I knew she would do a great job! 

The invitation is now available for purchase and can be found here in her shop.

She also designed this adorable welcome sign for the front door. I loved how it looked added to this DIY doily wreath!

I cleared out the dining room and turned it into a mini ballet studio. This banner she designed was the perfect added touch.

I used the matching tent cards she designed to label the food. They can be found here.

I love the adorable cupcake toppers she designed. She was able to make them the exact size I needed to fit my 2" scallop circle punch.

I iced Claire's cake using a 1M piping tip. You can view a tutorial for this here.

Tiffany from Dance United came to teach the girls a little ballet lesson. Claire was so excited when she came to the door dressed as a ballerina!

The littlest ballerinas.


I used the leftover satin from Claire's ballerina dress to make these satin flower hair clips for the little girls to take home. You can view the tutorial for these here.

Nora from the Cookie Kiln made the most darling sugar cookies! All of the little tutus had been eaten by the time I got a chance to take this picture but aren't these adorable?!

Here they are all wrapped up as party favors. I tied the coordinating favor tags Lonni designed onto each bag with ribbon. You can purchase the favor tags here.

Since some of Claire's cousins that attended the party were little boys I had a few bow tie cookies available for them.
