Swan Lake Ballerina Birthday

When a good girl boss friend reaches out needing help with her daughter's birthday party, you make ballerina dreams come true! I was so excited to work on a party for Angela's daughter, Addie. She has so much spunk and loves anything girly. She has been taking dance classes, and her mom mentioned she would love a ballet themed party. I found some adorable invitations through the shop and we got to work.

Ever since we got in the gorgeous iridescent swan plates, I've been eager to throw a Swan Lake themed party. This was just the occasion! I mixed the die cut swan plates with adorable printed swan plates. I kept the napkin simple with the cute blink eyes. I cut up the swan garland we have to run down the center of the tables on top of confetti. Very light and elegant, but fun with the confetti and pops of pink.

For the backdrop, we went all out pink hanging up the beautifully ombre dyed canvas that Liv + Work made for us last year. Pretty ballerina balloons danced next to the dessert table, which helped delicious treats by shop favorite, September Moon Cupcakery. The remaining swan garland went along the table, and Angela brought the adorable Swan Lake book she had ordered for Addie.

The most magical part of the party, was the wonderful appearance from a couple ballerinas in the Ballet Wichita company. Every time we host the ballerinas at our shop, they are always so sweet and interactive with the littles. This time was no exception, and their beautiful costumes matched the party so well. Definitely snag your tickets to this year's Nutcracker to see them perform!

For the party craft and favor, I ordered in supplies for the girls to decorate tutus and bows, and boys super hero capes. We set the supplies on the tables and tutus on the backs of the chairs. Rhinestone stickers made for easy, mess free decorating. Plus, what little girl doesn't like a little sparkle! The super hero capes I ordered came with everything they needed, including the stickers. They both seemed to be a hit!

It was so fun finally getting to execute a theme I had been thinking up, and celebrating a little I have known since her birth - cannot believe she is four!
