Party Invitations

A nice invitation goes a long way

When I was a kid it was pretty rare you would get a themed party invite but on those rare occasions it happened it was something we all cherished. I remember having the invites showcased on my shelves, I was always feeling so proud when I got one (it was mail after all and who doesn't love to get snail mail - bills excluded naturally).

While there are quite a few invites available for you to buy I think this freebie looks a lot better than the whole lot.

I don't have experience with this exact pan but I did work with quite a few other Wilton cake pans, they are really easy to work with and they also come with ideas and techniques on how to decorate the cake.


Ballerina Cake Topper I Absolutely Love - A pair of ballet shoes

Cake toppers can indeed be life saviours. For example they can save the day if you already have a nice sculpted cake and you somehow manage to drop it (not that this happened to me, or did it). Inexpensive and a nice focal point of the cake.

Ballet shoes and tutus are what make ballerinas special. I really like this pair of slippers, I like them because they are in my favourite color purple.


Ballerina Cupcake Toppers and Rings

Best Cupcake Ideas

Cupcake rings are perfect as they make a pretty cupcake decoration as well as a great party favor!

To make your cupcake as on picture you can also use mini cherry blossom edible flower decorations and pink sugar to make cupcakes even better looking.

Don't you just love these? They will be looking utterly adorable on top of the cupcakes and on the girls fingers later on. There won't be a girl at the party that wouldn't be a fan of these in my opinion.


Make your own Cupcake Toppers

I just had to share this!

If you have a lot of time on your hands before the party you simply must make these.

I would use these as name tags on the table or as cupcake toppers. They are really easy to make but if you are going for large numbers will take awhile.

The white combination is adorable but you can also try different colors - pink, beige, light blue, well in any color your heart wants.

Party Decorations

Tutu's up

Keep it white and pink with a lot of tutus and ballet shoes!

Print out and cut out ballerina silhouettes. Stick them on the walls. You can decorate them with glitter or and use tutus to make them pop!

Pom poms and balloons make a great party decoration.

Simple Decorations make a Big Difference

This centrepiece actually reminds me of summers when I was a kid. At one summer decorations such as this ballerinas tutu were served on ice creams - they were in all the colors of the rainbow and I was always excited to get one.
