More Links and Ideas for a Ballet Party:
  1. Free printable ballerina party invitations
  2. We started with this ballet class hidden picture activity as the guests were arriving.
  3. Raspberry floats - raspberry soda with raspberry sherbet
  4. Blow up a bag of pink and a bag of lavendar balloons and scatter them across the floor
  5. Dollar Store princess crowns and/or tutus as favors - we also had stuffed ballerina bears and unicorns that I got 50% off after Valentine's Day (and later saw for 75% off!)
  6. I meant to scatter artificial rose petals down the table too, but I forgot
  7. Play "pass the slipper" (hot potato) to Nutcracker music
  8. You can find Angelina Ballerina coloring pages here.
  9. More great ideas here and here.

Hey again Alicia!

I was itching to leave a comment yesterday about your daughter's too cute bday party - happy belated to her! :o) I love the ballerina cake, and the pass the slipper game!! My little girl would love those.

I saw at my blog you lived in Steelton - I went to PSU Harrisburg right by there and worked at Steelton-Highspire as a tutor during college! I student taught at Foose School in Harrisburg. That's so cool that you grew up right close by! I still miss that area.
