It’s a Ballerina Birthday!

abbey 6th birthday party


Well my second oldest turned 6 in January and I still can not believe it, she is growing up too fast. Just like her big sister she is obsessed with dance so of course once again we had a ballerina birthday party at K Studio. With a new baby I was not going to stress myself out and end up with no sleep for a week planning the perfect birthday party, instead this year I was smart.




First the party was not at my house, so no staying up late to clean YAY!


ballerina crowns and ribbon wands


Second I ordered the wands for dancing instead of slaving over them myself. I got these fabulous ribbon wands on Etsy and they were perfect even coming with a custom wand for the birthday girl! I then picked up some crowns at Target and party favors were done, no crafting necessary!

Third I went super simple and made cupcakes with chocolate ballerina shoes on top and ordered pizza. Add a fruit tray, chips and Capri Suns and we are all set.

Fourth I ordered the cutest party supplies from and as always was very happy with them. I went with the Elegant Princess Damask set and it was perfect. I had everything I needed from tablecloths  and paper products to center pieces so all the decor was taken care of.

I could have done a lot more by the way of decor, but this was perfect and I was not stressed at all which is a huge win for me. But best of all my daughter loved every minute of it!

Thank you to BirthdayExpress for saving a moms sanity by providing party supplies, all opinions are my own. And yes I bought the wands, the food and the crowns.

  1. Sounds like you had a great party, the party supplies are so cute. Sometimes it is just better and certainly easier to not have the birthday parties elsewhere.

  2. Happy Birthday again & my Amelia would love this!! So fun.

  3. Your daughter really has changed a lot in a year. I remember the pics of her modeling FloJos and she looked so little! My oldest turns 7 in May and I cannot believe how fast she is changing. My youngest is the ballet fan, though. She would have loved this party.

  4. What a cute birthday party. I like the theme called Ballerina Birthday. I bet your daughter really liked having the pink plates and cupcakes. they look delicious. It is true our kids grow up too fast!!
