A Party Fit for a Prima Ballerina...(tons of pics)

Linking up to: Blooms Designs Online


Enjoy....take it all in...


Birthday Girl


Birthday Girl and her sister at the new birthday present - Disney Ariel Beauty Shop
I used Dollar Tree tablecloths to make "curtains" to showcase their dressing area.





Getting ready for the dance...







All the girls dancing...
The two large "packages" on the wall are the kids school bulletin boards, I needed to camouflage them. 



Craft time..
Dollar Tree had great foam flowers and stickers I bought...they used them all up!









YUMMO


A present from her Aunt.





BFF's




Before the girls get here.



I bought this rack at Homegoods. It was broken in 1/2 (Clearance for $ 10). I glued it, painted it and there you go...

Each girl got a tutu, headband and wand.

Covered the bulletin boards (for school)



Easy paper flowers. Using tissue paper..less than $ 1 a piece.


Each girl got a goodie bag to fill up at the sweet shoppe with their name on it and a ballerina that had the same hair color as the girl.  (Etsy shop...see credit below)

I used my silhouette machine to make the ballerinas and glued them to a bunch of different things.

All the girls got Scrabble Tile Necklaces with Ballerinas on them. (see Etsy shop before for credits)
There are what the necklaces look like.





The table is real long and I did not have a cloth, so i used Crepe paper and made this instead.


Sweet Shoppe



Ikea frames...



Dollar Tree candy...worked well...


Fun polka dot paper and striped paper came from another great Etsy shoppe (see below)






Popcorn cones I made from paper and tape. Again here are the ballerina silhouettes.



Found these at the grocery store...perfect!































It was a beautiful day and a wonderful time with my girls and their friends!
