“Dancing in the Rain” Ballerina Party
“Dancing in the Rain” Ballerina Party Details:
This is what Leslie shared about the party-
“I decided to go with the theme “Dancing in the Rain” because my daughter is obsessed with everything ballet right now and as a preschooler we definitely experience many storms in this house lately! I was thinking about the quote Life isnt about waiting for the storms to pass, its about learning to dance in the rain a lot and it just seemed perfect! I kept the color palette soft with baby blues, mint, pink and lots of white accents. I also added a lot of ballet touches like the huge ballerina cutout with a 3D tutu made of Baby’s breath for the backdrop, cutouts on the glasses and cake.
Ballet Details and Sweets
I also cut out dozens of raindrops to scatter around the ballerina as the backdrop. To help the raindrops have a 3D effect I used medical tape to adhere the raindrops and after about 20 minutes the medical tape puffed up and held each of the raindrops slightly off the backdrop and they looked like they really were falling. To further keep the ballerina theme throughout I displayed ballerina slippers, real ones and sugar cookie ones! For the other treats I went with little girl friendly foods like sugar cookies, pastel macrons, and sweet pink lemonade. As well as a vanilla bean with cream cheese raspberry filling covered with a marshmallow fondant and dotted with fondant raindrops as well as ballerina figure.”
