A Ballerina Birthday

This is a sponsored post. Thank you for supporting SITC.

For the last 5 months Siella has been talking about a ballerina birthday party. We happen to go to one right around the time she started taking ballet classes at Downtown Dance Factory. I am still in awe about her passion for ballet. I don’t remember loving something that much, especially at the age of almost three. I knew I had to come up with the cutest and pinkest little ballerina party ever for her.

I chose to have it at the studio where we currently take classes. Her teacher for our usual Tuesday ballet was available to teach the party as well. This was perfect for all the girls, since most of them already know the incredible Ms. Vicki.

I knew I could turn to Minted for special ballerina themed invites. For me, when planning a party, it starts with an invitation. Minted custom made Siella’s invites and thank you cards perfectly, and I was even able to choose the color of the ballerina’s hair! I ordered matching return label, Closure Stickers with ballet shoes on them. Minted is always a brand that I trust when it comes to party invitations, birth announcements, and holiday cards for my family’s special milestones. They are always printed on luxe paper, and have the most unique designs which are created by Minted’s global community of independent designers. They make it super easy for us busy mamas to customize a greeting card with special photos or messages to make each card truly incredible for your friends and family. I wanted to add some extra touches, so I also purchased from Minted Party Decor section a Happy Birthday Banner as well as a Gold Glitter Banner, Personalized Table Runner, and fun Flag Stickers to wrap around straws.

Although I always make my kids cakes and cupcakes for their parties, it was impossible this time because Ryder wound up graduating from Kindergarten that morning and by the time I raced home, there was no way I could have gotten it all done in time. Luckily, my #1 fav cupcakes in NYC, Molly’s, came to my rescue. They delivered three dozen cupcakes with no worries and within 5 hours before the party started. Sometimes as a mom you need to just surrender and realize you simply cannot do it all.

Siella fully loved and enjoyed every single minute of her party making it all that much more special. She knew it was her day and just ate up all of the attention.

  1. Such a beautiful birthday party. Your daughter looked like she has a lovely time. I cannot wait till my daughter starts taking ballet classes this fall.

  2. Dianne, there is no distain for women. You’re right that a woman can’t get into the upper level of the Celestial kindogm without a man. But guess what, a man can’t get in there either without a woman. They need each other. People hear half truths and jump up and down shouting that something is wrong, or that a religion is BAD. My advice: don’t rely on sound-bites to make informed decisions. If you want to disagree with the mormon faith, do so because you’ve taken the time to study it a bit. I don’t care if someone doesn’t like Mormonism, or any other religion for that matter. What I care about is when people hate a religion and really don’t have the first clue what that religion believes in. +3Was this answer helpful?

  3. Being tired of watching my faotrive British programs hacked to pieces by PBS to fit into arbitrary time frames, and seeing those edits carried to the American DVD versions of such programs as Inspector Lewis, I decided to take the plunge and buy a region free DVD player so that I could buy the DVDs from Amazon UK in their original, uncut form. This tiny unit (it likely will fit into any space where you could put a medium sized hardcover book) was as simple to set up as possible. One set of component outputs plugged into my tv (component cable included), US adapter popped onto the electrical plug (comes wired with a European plug but the US adapter also comes in the box), and the unit was ready to go. I had seen other reviewers complain that the instruction sheet and the default onscreen language is in Spanish this is correct, but the remote is labeled in English and it is so easy to navigate to the preferences menu once the unit is plugged in and reset to English that it really is no problem at all (I do not speak or read Spanish, but if you’ve ever set up a dvd or vcr player with on-screen programming, it will not be a problem). Dropped in a European dvd that I had from my last trip overseas and it played perfectly. All in all, a perfect, inexpensive little solution to those who want to watch non-US dvds. One word of caution, when ordering, a pop up offered an HDMI cable bundled with the dvd player for an additional $1.99. Since I would have preferred to run the signal through HDMI, I ordered the bundle; however, the unit DOES NOT HAVE an HDMI output. Since the cable was so inexpensive and I know I will put it to other use in the future, I am keeping it and not complaining, but please note that there is no need or reason to buy this cable to use with this DVD unit. The DVD player comes with the cable (component video) and everything else you need in the box all you need to add is your TV and your non-region 1 dvds. Buy with confidence and enjoy!
