It's only fair...

Not to be outdone, my daughter quickly pointed out that there are no pictures of her birthday on here. I wasn't going to post it for two reasons: 1. She's younger, and her party wasn't as "elaborate" as my son's. 2. I was so busy that day, I barely took any pictures! However, my little 5-year old had a ballerina party. She was adorable. She wanted a ballerina on top of the cake, but I didn't know how else to decorate it. So...the cupcakes.

I went with black and pink for decorations (I love those two colors together), and these little take-out boxes were the girls gift bags. I had to search all over, but I did end up finding all ballerina themed trinkets inside.
I KNOW I must have been busy when I look at this picture, because I can't believe I didn't take one that would turn out better. You probably can't tell, but I streamed pink toile (spelling?) from the ceiling and dangled crafting letters in her name from black ribbon. All the letters had little ballerinas all over them.
I sent out ballerina shoe invitations, I filled pink buckets up with mints and yogurt covered raisins, we had pink lemonade...and then me chowed on pizza! What a day!
She's a pretty darn cute ballerina, if I do say so myself. ;-)

This is beautiful! I really might have to steal this idea for Kary's next birthday party. I love the balleria idea and how she was wearing a tu-tu! How perfect!

I love the pink and black together. I've always liked pink and brown together, but never really considered black. So adorable for a ballerina party!
