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.
We couldn’t have asked for a better birthday…it was truly fit for a ballerina!
