Ballerina Ball Birthday Party
Ballerina Ball Birthday Party Details:
This is what Ann shared about the party-
“I love ballet and so does my little girl. I took classes as a child. Now, I see around 17 performances a year, many of them with my daughter. She attended her first ballet at 1 year old, sitting quietly mesmerized for the entirety of George Balanchine’s Rubies. Then, she began learning basic ballet moves at that age and started classes at two. She has continued since. For her “Ballerina Birthday Ball”, one of her former ballet teachers choreographed a dance for her to perform. She performed as Princess Aurora, to Tchaikovsky’s “The Garland Waltz” from The Sleeping Beauty ballet.
My favorite dessert elements include:
- Personalized pointe shoes. Designed by American Ballet Theatre Principal Ballerina, Sarah Lane. It was a joy to meet her twice! We love Sarah Lane.
- The gorgeous cake executed masterfully by Lesley Wright of The Royal Bakery. It was a joy seeing my design for this cake come to life through her impeccable work.
- I selected 3 of my favorite ballet paintings by Edgar Degas to be placed in the fondant frames surrounding the fondant stage.
I also truly enjoyed designing the invitation, the tutu worn by the ballerina in the image was based off one we saw together during a ballet in Paris, designed by Christian Lacroix for the Paris Opera Ballet’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Balanchine.
Music from classical ballets played during the party and some of the activities for the little ballerinas included making masks for Romeo & Juliette’s masquerade ball and learning a dance from ballet teachers at a local school to Tchaikovsky’s The Sleeping Beauty as well. The garlands were handmade by my sister and brother-in-law, my husband, and me using hula hoops, silk flowers, and floral tape.
I also adored the cookies and chocolate covered Oreos, but my little one only wanted to eat the rose petal Turkish delight…must be too much listening to the “Rose Adagio” from The Sleeping Beauty… The “stage” was made by using a large soccer goal and curtains both found on Amazon. ”
