Selected as Party of the Day on June 5th!


Melissa N By Melissa N  in Ballet Recital Reception


Party Recap

It was an entire year in the making. Our daughter finally had her first ballet recital and of course we needed to celebrate this very special event.

I transformed our kitchen into a meca of PINK!

Using dollar store pink plastic tablecloths for the drapings and gathering other decor from around her bedroom, I spent less than $ 15 on decor (including flowers)!

She had a great time and the weather was beautiful!

    HI Sallie For the "draping" I used dollar tree pink plastic table cloths. This is a bay window in my kitchen so it worked well.
