Ballerina Theme

Twirling & tutu’s are some girl’s most favourite things – and if that sound’s like your daughter then perhaps this theme is perfect for her – especially if she also loves pink!

Style this party with shades of pink, or pink combined with another colour. Use tulle elements throughout the party (although don’t overdo it!) and if your little girl already has some tutu’s or ballet slippers use these as decorations in prominent places in the party area.

You could incorporate some fun and unique elements into this party such as having a ballet dance session (whether it’s the girls simply twirling and dancing around themselves or hiring someone to come and run the session at the party) or setting up a ballet studio area with a make believe ballet barre (some type of wall/clothes rack might work well for this).

Make sure you pop into my Fairy theme post where I also included a lot of girly elements and tutu’s although I have provided more tutu inspiration in this post as well.



There are some gorgeous ballerina invitations and printables available, showing off various colour combinations with different shades of pink:

For decorations you can’t go past tulle pom poms for this theme. They are almost made for this party theme, and will look so pretty dangling in your little girl’s room after the party.

These items would all make lovely centrepieces for your table:

It would be lovely to create a space in your party area (or set up your whole party area)  to resemble a ballet studio or stage. You can be creative in this using tulle or other material, banners, pom pom’s etc. Or (if your budget allows, and you can reuse it) you can purchase a room divider such as this to help create this area:

Ekne room divider – Ikea

You can also set up mirrors to resemble a ballet studio, and these mirrors from Ikea (sold in a pack of 2 for $20) are not too expensive and could work well if you bought 2-3 packs and spread the mirrors out slightly. Of course this depends on your budget and how much effort you are able to go into, however this is one option. You could also find a large mirror to rest against the wall as well:

Krabb mirror – Ikea

For a Ballerina party your little one is sure to want to wear a tutu. I have included some tutu ideas previously in my Fairy Theme post, however here are some more finds:
