Edie’s Ballerina Birthday Party

Edie and Lola’s birthdays are only 2 years and 5 days apart, perfect for a joint birthday party in the garden! Seeing as Lola is only 1, Edie got to choose the theme… Ballerinas!

We started the party by making ribbon wands for the girls to dance with. It was a fairly simple activity with little mess to avoid ruining their pretty little ballerina tutus. I had prepared the wands by simply dipping the ends into some glitter and adding some wire to the top to thread the ribbons through. The girls decorated their wands with washi tape, stickers, and pens, then the chose their ribbons and we attached them.

I’m lucky enough to have a friend who teaches ballet to children, so naturally I called in a favour and asked her to hold a short dance lesson for the girls. They loved it! The wands were the perfect accessory and they looked super cute waving them around!

During the dancing I set out cupcakes with little ballerina corset toppers, pink butter icing and different decorations. The kids went wild! They spent ages decorating their little cupcake ballerinas… and then consumed them in a matter of minutes! It was definitely a winner!
