I created this Ballerina party for my daughter's sixth birthday since she has a real passion for ballet.
There was obviously going to be a lot of pink and I decided to add accents of yellow.

We transformed our conservatory into a ballet studio where my daughter and her guests enjoyed a private ballet lesson. There I set up a little display using a ballet shoes frame I made and her favourite ballet doll. I included some treats, pop corn and ballet (chocolate) bars, for our little ballerinas to re-fuel during their lesson !

I really wanted to carry the ballet studio theme to the dessert table and so decided to have a big mirror and a ballet bar in the display. The mirror was a fantastic ebay buy that I painted and distressed. My husband made the ballet bar.
Treats on the table included ballet buns (tea cakes), ballet shoe cookies (homemade), sweets, lemon and angel slices, as well as a homemade chocolate mud birthday cake topped with a fondant ballerina.

The tulle pompoms tutorial may be found here:

Finally at the lunch table, each girl had her own mini cupcake stand (tutorial: ) with a vanilla cupcake, complete with a tutu cupcake topper ( tutorial: ). The girls loved those stands !
I made meringues and there were also store bought vanilla and jam cookies on display on the table.
I used tulle to decorate the chairs with big bows.
