Land of Snow: Nutcracker Ballet Party!

There is just nothing sweeter than a Nutcracker Ballet Party! Seeing the Nutcracker was one of my favorite childhood memories and such a perfect theme for a little girl’s birthday party. Carla Thomas of Palm Beach Parties styled up this darling design for her daughter, Ava.

“My daughter Ava has been in ballet for 4 years now, so when she asked for a ballet theme birthday party it was only fitting! At first she told me that she wanted simply pink and white, but for me, that theme would be what everyone would expect from a ballet party.” – Carla Thomas, Palm Beach Parties

I love the “snowy” touches and these oh-so-cute “Tiny Dancer” Cupcake Toppers! It’s these little touches that make all the difference. Everything down to the plastic “glass bottles” with paper straws (from my fave,  Shop Sweet Lulu) was perfectly designed for a dazzling Nutcracker Ballet Party that any girl would adore!

Carla shared details of the little girls activity at the party: learning a ballet from the Nutcracker! I think having at least one fun little activity at a child’s birthday party is a good idea. After the girls enjoyed ballet, they took to the sweet treats – and boy were they sweet! I love the rock candy + the cake!

“The girls were all giddy and smiles from ear to ear! I’ve never seen Ava have so much fun! Not only was she doing what she absolutely loves…dancing ballet…she was surrounded by all of her favorite girls!”
