My little sunshine turned 6 a week ago. It’s harder to accept that your youngest is growing. (S)he is always the youngest of the house no matter what.
My daughter wanted a Ballerina Birthday party this year. We made a big change and threw the party somewhere other than our house. For the last 13 parties, between my son and daughter, we always preferred having the party in our basement. However, with ballerina theme we decided to have it at a more appropriate setup.
We had the party at ABC Dance Academy, where my daughter takes her ballet & tap classes. Her own ballet instructor, entertained the little ballerinas the party.
I did very little homemade/handmade decorations. I just made these ballerinas with snowflake tutus. I purchased the ballet themed tableware, banners, loot bags and gifts from DiscountPartySupplies.com.
