Every little girl goes through a phase where she dreams she will become a ballerina! The little girl under the spell of ballet will wear her tutu everywhere and pirouette instead of walking. Reality drifts away as she schemes of running away to join the New York City Ballet! Take advantage of visions of “The Nutcracker” and dreams of “Swan Lake” dancing in her head. Use her obsession to throw her a ballerina party she will never forget!
A ballet party is a cheap, easy way to let her and her friends live out their dreams of dancing on stage (and it’s much safer than setting a 6-year-old loose in New York!)
To plan a perfect ballerina party, one must first decide on a location. Though home is the cheapest place to throw a party, the mess that 20 children can make will require a professional cleaning technician! The lower stress solution is to either have the party outside or rent a space. Because the theme is ballet, one should look into possibly renting an auditorium. The children will feel like real dancers while eating cake and playing party games on stage! Some budget-cutting schools are renting out their auditoriums on weekends to make up for the financial short fall. These auditoriums can be rented for as low as $ 100 per day, and janitorial service is included!
Another option is to rent a banquet hall or party room. The ballerina party is a popular theme, so the party planner should check around the area to see if any party companies offer ballerina party packages. Such packages usually include tutus, cake, and a choice of entertainment. If one decides to have a backyard party, a Plan B should be in place in case of bad weather.
A tarp or portable canopy should be set up to protect the little revelers from sun, wind, or rain. Be prepared to move the ballerina party to the basement or other indoor area if severe weather strikes.
For low-cost party outfits, a simple tutu can be made from a stretchy cotton headband and colorful scarves. Make sure the headband is big enough to fit around the waists of all the little girls. Two headbands can be hand sewn or glued together for bigger waistlines. Secure the scarves to the headband using simple hand stitches or craft glue.
An additional important aspect of a successful ballerina party is a beautiful cake! The cake should probably be pink, and very feminine! Think sparkles and ballet shoes! One can easily make a beautiful cake with a mix, canned frosting, and ballerina-themed cake decorations.
Be sure to play famous ballet soundtracks in the background to set the mood. Games should be simple, like pin the tutu on the ballerina or a ballet-themed version of Mother-May-I would be perfect! Most of all, one must make sure the children are safe and have fun!
A ballerina party can be the perfect way to spend an afternoon with a gaggle of little girls. A solid plan ahead of time will avoid any major mishaps!
