Ballerina party supplies

Many little girls dream of one day becoming a ballerina – a life full of fun costume changes, audience applause, music and twirling in PINK! I know both my daughters have gone through the ballerina phase of wanting to wear a tutu daily

So a ballerina party is a chance to bring the dream to life for just one day!

Not only is a ballet party theme one of the easiest to execute with an abundance of gorgeous party wares available in pink and white, it’s also an easy dress up theme for guests as well. The look of joy on their faces as they twirl and marvel in how they look in a tutu is enough to make you want to join them.

The hardest with such a theme however is knowing when to stop! So to make your little ballerina’s special party tutu-refic, we’ve found some perfectly pink items and on point finishing touches from the LLC vendors that will have her and her guests twirling ’til they drop!

Fairy Theme

A Fairy theme is such a popular theme for girl’s  and although I had done a previous blog post on this theme I decided to re-work it to keep it up to date!

For this theme you could incorporate woodland/garden features or keep it pastel and pretty. You could incorporate glitter, tulle, ribbons or any other whimsical decorations! If going for a woodland feel there are lots of props you could use such as mushroom decorations, wooden cutlery, grass table mats etc.

Here is a selection of some items to help inspire you and help you source some items for this theme!

You can also view my Pinterest board for more inspiration for this theme, and make sure you visit the Children’s Party Directory to find more fantastic vendors when planning this party!
