Tutu Much Fun Today...

Today was the girls' ballerina birthday party. It was beautiful and magical and probably the most girly event I've ever seen! Here's the low-down for all you friends and family afar who couldn't attend:

The invitations: A cute homemade on the computer pink swirly background with a cartoon ballerina in the middle, opaqued out a little, and it read: "Prima Ballerinas Lexi and Ashton are having birthdays. We'll pirouette and spin in our tutu and bows as we dance around on our tippy toes! Debut: Sunday, April 12th. Curtain Call: 2:00. Final Bow: 4:00. Recital Hall: (our address). It will be tutu fun if you can come!

The attire: I made each girl who came their very own tutu to keep and told them to wear either a ballet leotard with tight or just play clothes to the party to wear under their tutus.

The entertainment: As the girls arrived, they each got their tutus on and got to put on make up and have their nails done. I also had a friend that does face painting and she came and brought her supplies and put sparkly princess powder on all the girls. Then Lexi's ballet teacher taught the girls a dance in 3 phases and they preformed for us a mini recital to the Beauty and the Beast music. It was PRECIOUS!!!!

The food: Very simple. pink and white cupcakes with white icing and colored sugar sprinkles. All the colored sugar was pastel colors. So cute! Daddy made them! With the left over cake mix, he also made an adult pink cake with pink icing. The kids had juice boxes and those little tiny blue bell ice cream individual sized containers. I also had pretty cookies, snack foods, and drinks out for the adults.

The decorations: White table cloths with tuille left over from the tutus spread out. Purple and blue candles to match the furry tiaras I used on the tables. Flowers and those little tiny jewels you buy at the craft store spread out all over the table. It was very princess like!

Overall, this was a very simple party and cheap. The biggest chore was making the tutus. That took forever, but the looks on their faces and the joy they had about taking them home totally made up for all the hard work!!! Enjoy the pictures!

I loved it - Tell your man he did a great job on the cupcakes and the mirror for the ballerinas! I can only imagine how long it took to make the tutu's after only making 1 from that pattern!!!
