We transformed our conservatory into a ballet studio where my daughter and her guests enjoyed a private ballet lesson. There I set up a little display using the ballet shoes frame I created earlier this year and her favourite ballet doll. I included some treats, pop corn and ballet (chocolate) bars, for our little ballerinas to re-fuel during their lesson !
I really wanted to carry the ballet studio theme to the dessert table and so decided to have a big mirror and a ballet bar in the display. The mirror was a fantastic ebay buy that I painted and distressed and my husband made the ballet bar.
Our little candy selection
Ruffle cake with fondant ballerina cake topper
The ballet buns are Tea Cakes !
Finally at the lunch table, each girl had her own mini cupcake stand with a vanilla cupcake, complete with a tutu cupcake topper. The girls loved those stands !
I made meringues and there were also store bought vanilla and jam cookies on display on the table.
I used tulle to decorate the chairs with big bows.
I made the lunch boxes from this template although I changed the measurements till the boxes were just the right size for me. And I used embellished pegs to close the boxes.
As favors, the girls took home some Ballerina Bracelets and chocolate lollies.
