For the candy jars, I took tulle and hot glued it to the top of the glass containers to make it look like a tutu. I did the same thing for the drink tub. I also used tulle on the backs of the chairs and on the tables. I draped tulle and white lights from the ceiling.
I'm loving this wreath.
I made the cupcakes, but not the cake this time. I had grand ideas of making a ballet slipper cake but just ran out of time.
For the favors, I purchased blank canvas bags from Hobby Lobby, used puffy pant to put their names on the bags and added pink tulle to the tops. I had lots of ballerina related items in there. Target dollar aisle coincidentally had ballet slippers, tutus, wands and crowns. For the boys, I found knight/prince bags in the Target dollar aisle and then found “knight” gear from the Dollar store – helmets, swords, shields, etc. Melissa, you are my kind of girl!
Since my daughter’s 1st birthday, I’ve made posters of the kids with a picture of them from every month. I’m going to save them and then bring them out at their high school graduation or wedding. I just love this idea....now to execute it before Maddy is 18!
I made the kids tutu peanut butter and jelly sandwiches out of pastel colored bread I got from our local grocery store. They were very time consuming, but very cute! I love this so much~ I shall be copying Melissa.
I had lots of activities for the kids for this party. We played “pin the tutu on the ballerina.” I found a coloring page that I blew up and put on a poster. I made little tutus for each of the kids. We also had a ballet slipper piñata. Melissa, awesome job! When did you have time to prepare for your cases?? I tell you ~mothers are the most amazing people I know!! Stayed tuned for another great DIY party tomorrow from Melissa the Magnificent!
