Hosting an adorable Ballerina Party for your little girl is one of the easiest parties to host! When my friend Katy told me that her daughter wanted a ballerina party, I was thrilled to send her my printables! I also thought it would be fun to share my tips for hosting an amazing (and easy) party that is sure to keep your costs down but also impress even the littlest of your guests.
Five Easy Steps to Throw a Ballerina Party
Step 1: Use a LOT of tulle as part of your decorating. You can easily find tulle at your local Joann’s, Beverly’s or even Walmart! Tulle is really inexpensive and can be the common thread to tie all of your party elements together! Use it on your chairs (link), as a table skirt (link), even as an accessory for your guests (link)
Step 3: Have fun party games and activities for the kids. Katy had a Ballerina-Wand making station and used ribbons and washi tape. The little girls loved it and it was a fun and inexpensive activity. You might also play a few traditional games like “pin the tutu on the ballerina” (use cupcake liners folded in half as the tutu and draw a ballerina on a large piece of paper), a quick ballet lesson (first position, 2nd position, etc), freeze dance with ballet music (dance like a ballerina while the music is on and FREEZE when the music stops), or even “Ballerina says” (played just like Simon says).
Step 4: Include fun themed foods like these cupcakes from a friend of the hostess. (Link coming soon). How CUTE are these???
Don’t forget about a themed cake!
Step 5: Don’t be afraid to use your printables throughout your party! Add tulle to things like favor bags (see tutorial here)
Before your guests leave, be sure to send them off with a cute favor. How sweet are these cookies? You could also put them in gift bags and embellish with tulle (see step 1). (Link)
