As I get ready for my daughter's first ballet class (at age 3 -- should be pretty funny to watch) I couldn't resist featuring this Ballerina Bakery Party by Melissa and Kellie of Icing Designs. You know you're in for a major treat when these girls design a party! Beautifully captured by Bloom Photography by Meredith Price, this birthday party would also make the perfect theme for a baby shower. And... if you want to make it just like this one, you might want to get in touch with Potter and Butler for the mini pom poms, JP Creatibles for those super cute cookies and Dough A Deer for the yummy mini doughnuts.
From Melissa & Kellie... We are so excited to finally share some photos from our "Ballerina Bakery" birthday party with you! We created this party for my twins 4th birthday! Maia and Sophia are smitten with ballet right now, and what little girl doesn't love sweets...so we decided to combine the two and came up with a "ballerina bakery" theme! Our invitations were created especially for this party, we are really excited about them because they are great for any ballerina party and perfect for twins!
We had so much fun creating the actual party and even had my father in law build an actual bakery case for us to display the sweets in! We set it on top of a 3 foot card table covered with tulle and a sparkly pink table cloth. Above the table we hung a mixture of paper poms from Paperwhite Designs and paper lanterns from Luna Bazaar and a gorgeous pink fabric ruffle garland that our sweet friend Katie made for us. Above the case we hung a “Ballerina Bakery” hand-glittered letter garland.
We filled the case with cupcakes topped with hand-glittered “4” ruffled cupcake toppers that we made and mini pink chocolate ballet shoes, chocolate covered oreos, chocolate covered French palmiers, chocolate covered oversized marshmallows topped with the cutest “peppy toppers” from Potter and Butler, tiny tim cookies, the most beautiful ballerina cookies we have ever seen from JP Creatibles and delicious mini donuts from Dough A Deer! We also made hand-glittered scalloped food labels to go in front of each bakery item.
On top of the case we filled apothecary jars with pink, white and grey gumballs, mini marshmallow wands and pink rock candy. We made DIY tulle tutus to go around the apothecary jars and put a scalloped, glittered food label in the front of them. We also found the cutest pink eyelet bakery boxes so that they girls could fill them with extra treats to take home.
