Swan ballet party – Dream a little Dream events


With so many girls loving to dress up or dance as ballerinas it is no wonder a ballerina party is a popular theme that never goes out of trend. With the new Ballerina movie out this year and many girls starting up their ballet lessons again, we’re sure many will be wanting to twirl away with their friends in tutu’s at their very own ballerina bash!

This party theme is a lovely time to lash out in prettiness, tulle and all things soft and lovely! Incorporate feathers, bows, swans if you wish!

We’ve curated the best from our LLC vendors from the Directory to bring you a gorgeous selection of invitations, decorations, tableware and more for a ballerina party!

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!

Rebekah’s Ballet and Bows Party

I’m thrilled to be able to share Rebekah’s 3rd birthday Ballerina party with you after it has been featured in the recent Confetti Fair magazine which you can buy at the show, news-agencies or subscribe online!

We held the party in November 2013 and went with a “Ballet & Bows” party theme as Rebekah’s daily outfit of choice at the time was always a tutu and bow and she loves to pretend she is a ballerina! I went with the colours of pink, peach and ivory and held a small party at home for her with a few friends.

When planning this ballet & bows party I chose to only use vendors from the Life’s Little Celebration’s children’s party directory! I do genuinely believe you can plan a wonderful party through using the directory and I didn’t need to look elsewhere.

All photos are by Nikki Fitt Photography who I highly recommend and I’ll talk more about the photography later.

Here is the setup of the Ballerina dessert table and children’s table:



Nikki Fitt Photography_Tanya Castellino ballet party_33a-Edit

The gorgeous ruffled backdrop, as well as the kids party table, chairs, kids tulle tablecloth and ballerina centrepiece were all hired from Little Wish Parties, and gave a lovely ballerina feel to the party! I just loved that ruffled backdrop which perfectly matched the colour scheme as well!

I love tassel garlands but wanted something a bit different for this party. The wonderful Sara of Pom Pom Princess designed the tulle tassel garland you see at the front of table along with the tulle pom pom spoons on the jelly cups:

Nikki Fitt Photography_Tanya Castellino ballet party_59a

I kept the table quite simple and symmetrical – it meant an easier setup which is important for me when I have 2 toddlers running around on the day.

The gorgeous cake along with the bow macarons, ballerina slipper cake pops and cookie stacks were all created by It’s a Cake Thing (by Jhoanee) and tasted as good as they looked!:

ballet party 2

To keep the ballerina party theme going I used mini tutu’s from Tiny Tutu Cake Couture to wrap around the jelly cups and milk bottles. It created a really pretty effect – they are designed to be used on cupcake wrappers but I think they can work on a range of items!

The paper bows on the table were created by Penny Lane Studio who always creates such lovely decor.

ballet party 1

I incorporated bows wherever I could to continue the “Ballet & Bows” theme, so hanging over the drink dispenser is a bow garland by PS Made with Love who created bow balloon tails as well (see photo further down):

ballet 13

Above the children’s table I created a cluster of hanging decorations – lanterns, paper fans and tulle poms which I bought from various party boutiques in my directory (Ruby Rabbit Partyware, Occasion by Design, The Party Parlour, Pom Pom Princess).

This was a lot more time consuming than I realised, trying to get the cluster/spacing just right! Thankfully this party was held at home and I could set this up the day before.

ballet 10

ballet 7

On the children’s table I used lace paper plates, and pretty bow spoons created by Bespoke Party Products. Around the milk bottles I wrapped the mini tutu’s from Tiny Tutu Cake Couture (you must visit their range if you’re planning a ballerina party!).

The girls loved having their own table to sit at and it actually made them stay in one spot and eat their lunch!

ballet 3

I loved the bow balloon tails made by Liv of PS Made with Love to continue the bow theme.

Liv also created a “Pin the tutu on the ballerina” poster along with personalised little tutu’s for the girls to stick onto the poster! They were stunning with tulle and bows attached :

ballet 6

I had organised a little tutu for each of the girl’s on the day so they could each feel like a little ballerina.

Nicole from Pretty and Print created the customised printables for this party

Personalised swing tags were made for each of the tutu’s with the girl’s name and character image:

ballet 14

For the invitation I wanted a mini story book to be created as Rebekah loves storytelling with people she knows. Nicole of Pretty and Print created this lovely story with her friends, telling the story of them being invited to her 3rd birthday party and Rebekah really enjoys this little invite/book we can still read after the party.

I cannot speak more highly of Nicole’s designs and service!

I printed these invitations and then bound them with twine to create a little book:

ballet 8

For the party favour along with the tutu, each girl received a tutu ballerina bag (from The Party Parlour) along with a bow and some ballerina goodies I purchased from Party & Co and Piece of Cake Parties & Celebrations. I always enjoy putting together something lovely for the kids to take home.

ballet 12

As mentioned before Nikki from Nikki Fitt Photography was the photographer. I couldn’t recommend her more highly as we were so happy with the photos she took of the party and the friends and family there.

She had wonderful rapport with Rebekah to be able to take some lovely single shots of her at the start of the party as well. She captured lots of special and fun moments. I’m always careful not to share too many personal images of my children on my blog otherwise I would love to show you all the gorgeous moments she captured!

By the way the cute little tiara party hats you can see my youngest Naomi wearing below were from Party & Co and were such unique pretty hats – highly recommend them for any girly party theme as the kids enjoyed wearing them!

ballet 20

Fairy Crystal from Diamond Fairy Parties entertained and enchanted the girls with her fairy ballet. I am so glad I booked someone for the party. With only 6 girls I was going to skip on paid entertainment.  However having Fairy Crystal there meant that the parents could eat lunch in peace while the kids were entertained and enchanted and Rebekah absolutely loved the dancing, facepainting and games.

I did also run pass the parcel and pin the tutu on the ballerina (as mentioned above) however running these games with a group of toddler age children definitely wasn’t as easy as I expected which made me grateful I had organised extra entertainment.

We also had a table setup with some ballerina colouring in sheets and crayons for an extra activity and PS Made with Love designed the ballerina colouring sheets.

We honestly had a wonderful day celebrating Rebekah’s 3rd birthday! It was the smallest birthday celebration (numbers wise) we have had for one of our girls and it made the party very relaxed. Rebekah really enjoyed the company of her sister and 5 friends.

I hope you enjoyed the photos! It was a lot of fun to put this party together and with Rebekah turning 3 it was the first party she truly understood and appreciated.

As I was setting it up she kept saying “mum, it is so beautiful!”. Those words made everything so worth it because she is so beautiful and I hope the party reflected her.

Happy party planning!
