Glittery Ballerina Birthday Party
Amy Oren of Blowout Party submitted this dazzling ballerina party she recently designed for her daughter’s 5th birthday party. Amy is a sweet support of Pizzazzerie and has a fabulous party favor and invitation store, Blowout Party! What I truly love about this party is that Amy did it all herself. Yes, that includes the printables, the desserts, the cake, the backdrop, the ribbon wands, popcorn boxes and cotton candy cones! Super Mom!
The ballerina backdrop is my favorite element. Amy told us a bit about how she made the details! “For the printed papers and boxes, I stuck with a white and pink damask pattern. I used the free templates from Eat Drink Chic for the popcorn boxes, the personalized cup wrappers, and the frame I used for the invitation, the cups, the tutu nametags, and the chocolate wrappers. I designed a ballerina silhouette for the invitation and nametags, and I used the same silhouette for the backdrop. I printed it out at 2300% and then traced it onto a foam board. Then I cut it out and glittered her up! I used fabric and tulle for her tutu for a 3 dimensional look. The backdrop was made to look like a stage with fabric draping, and the ballerina in the center.”
Amy shared a bit about the sweet treats! “For the desserts, I made pink popcorn, pink rice crispy treats, cupcakes with ballet slippers and tutus fondant toppers, ballet slipper cookies which had satin ribbon tied through them, and a two tiered fondant covered cake with ballet slippers made out of fondant on top. I used pink buttercream on the cupcakes and stuck a pretty diecut dancing ballerina torso in the cream “skirt”. My favorite dessert were the beautiful pink meringues- they came out prettier than I expected! Again, I stuck in the ballerina pics into the meringues, so it looks like the desserts are dancing!”
Amy said, “Near the dessert table I had a pink whimsical rack that had pink tutus hanging for each girl. Using a satin pink ribbon, I tied printed name tags to the hangers. At each place setting was a party hat and a ribbon wand. The girls lookedso pretty wearing their tutus and their party hats which had a tulle pom pom and a bow on the side. The girls had so much fun playing freeze dance with their ribbon wands!“

Just beautiful–love the unique ballerina cupcakes and toppers. Genius!
Incredible. No other words to describe, except maybe beautiful, stunning, fabulous. What a lucky little girl!
This is the sweetest, most adorable party! I just love the details… especially the ballerinas in the meringue tutus! Just really a dream scenario for all the little girls I know!
Those are inventive, marvelous cupcake toppers. Love the whole thing, but those are my favorite detail.
Amy, beautiful job! I love the draping of the backdrop and the meringue tutus are the cutest!
Absolutely adorable and ever so creative!I hae four boys,so I really enjoyed looking atthis!So girly!!!
This is absolutely gorgeous! Wow! So incredible. If possible, could Amy share how she made the pink popcorn and rice krispie treats?
Hi Melissa, thanks for your sweet words!
To answer your question, I made the pink rice crispy treats and pink popcorn by using strawberry flavored marshmallow fluff instead of the white stuff. For the popcorn, I used unsalted popcorn, melted some butter and strawberry fluff, and poured it over the popcorn and mixed it together. For both these recipes you can use white marshmallows or fluff, and flavor it with strawberry jello powder after its hot.
Oh my heavens! This is every little girl’s dream. Unbelievable!!!
Wow. It is so PINK and lovely. Is that pink chocolate covered popcorn? The shoe cookies are adorable! And the glitter ballerina with a tutu. So unique.
What an amazing party! The best part is that the mom did it all, I can only imagine how loved this birthday girl must feel.
Wow! Super mom is right! This party is so adorable and simply amazing that everything was done in house!
This is adorable! A little girl’s dream party for sure!
This is gorgeous!! I’m a pink lover and I want a ballerina baby!
My gosh – these images are awe inspiring! What a wonderland for a little girl!
