Let us help you set the stage for your little prima ballerina's first birthday. By Noeleen Foster
You don’t have to spend a fortune to pull this cute ballerina birthday party together. By making your own snacks and decor, you can save a lot of money. We’ll show you how.
Ballerina birthday party decorations
- Set the scene by using white as the base colour of your décor and layering shades of pink and gold. Paper daisies, lanterns and bunting all help to create a sweet celebratory feel.
- Make your own pom-poms. Simply cut about 20 tulle squares measuring 30 x 30cm each. Place these on top of one another and tie them together with a ribbon in the centre. Pull and fluff out each layer.
- Decorate plates, tables and birdcages with flowers such as pink roses and baby’s breath.
To eat and drink
- Chocolate balls look chic in tall parfait glasses.
- Serve pink and white sweet treats including candy-coated almonds or peanuts and marshmallows.
- Serve pink milk in bottles and tie with ribbon.
- Use cake sprinkles over yoghurt-covered rice cakes and iced doughnuts.
- Ice-cream cones with strawberry and vanilla ice-cream are easy for little ones to eat.
- Include ballet-themed cupcakes and biscuits as well as delicate macaroons.
To take home
Make your own tutu decorated party packs. You can include bubbles, fruit drops or marshmallow sugar cones in them.
