My daughter, Gianna, celebrated her 4th Birthday Party this weekend with a *Little Ballerina* theme that she had requested.  However, since I didn't find the perfect ballerina themed invites & accessories (in purple & pink - her favorite colors!), I decided to make her birthday extra special this year by designing and baking almost everything. 
Below is a preview of all the pretty little details that made Gianna and her friends smile on this special day...

In the picture above:
• Little Ballerina Cupcake Toppers, available for purchase through my Etsy Shop.
• Little Ballerina Rum Cake with a Photo Sugar Sheet (Designed by Val) - Cake from Moulin Rouge Bakery - Miami, FL
• Tutu's & Flower Hair Clips made by Val, yet decorated by the girls during the party.  I found a great tutorial online on YouTube for a no-sew tutu which was easy and affordable to make - Check it out for yourself: How to Make a Tutu Tutorial.

Dessert Table filled with:
Rice Krispy Treats, Popcorn, Chocolate Lolipops, Hershey Nuggets, Marshmallow Pops, Cupcakes, Oreo cakes, Pretzel M&M's, Cotton Candy, Pink & Purple Tutu Sugar Cookies.

Purple & yellow tissue flowers & Banner on wall, 
handcrafted by Val, Kroma Design Studio.

Pink & Purple Tutu Sugar Cookies, inspired by AmyAtlas.

In the picture above:
• Chocolate Lolipops with "Thank You" Tags glued onto the front of the 2 inch circle lolipop cover.
• Cupcakes & Dessert place cards
• Marshmallow Pops within a glass jar filled with Pretzel M&M's.
• Pink & purple tutu sugar cookies, with "Thank You" tags tied onto each bag with ribbon.
