Hello! I'm so excited to be here! My name is Christina, photographer at Christina Higman Photography. A couple weeks ago my youngest daughter turned 3. She's been a ballet dancin' fool these days, so my mom and I decided to throw her a sweet ballerina themed party. I'm so blessed to have a crafty, energetic momma. We were able to divide our favorite pinterest finds and tackle most of the decorations ourselves. Here are a few images from the day....
|Simple flower decorations were mostly compiled of green plants from my yard. The soft pink roses matched the party perfectly.|
One of my favorite decorations was the ballerina tutu cupcake toppers my mom made. So perfect! She looked at this pinterest tutorial and then added her own touches. I loved the little rinestones, tulle, and sparkly ribbon she used. They got lots of attention. :-)
|The cake ruffles were my favorite.|
|The ballet sugar cookies above were one of my projects. They came out really cute, and they were super easy. I rolled out my cookie dough and just cut the oblong shape out with a knife. I looked at this site for my inspiration. |
Above you will also see my oldest daughter giving me her biggest smile in our pink frame we hung outside. Each of the quests posed for a picture.
The bottom left image is from this pinterest find. It's basically just a pink cut out from cardstock on the top, a ribbon across the middle, and the kids handprint to make the tutus. They turned out really cute and the kids seemed to enjoy a craft.
Lastly in the bottom right we had pink, heart shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Did you know you can have the Publix bakery make you a loaf of bread dyed any color? Awesome right?
|Here's my sweet little ballerina. I do a portrait session for each of my kids on their birthday. I love having pictures of ONLY them at least once a year. We had her custom headband made by Birde Baby Boutique.|
|One of her favorite presents...."real" ballerina shoes. :-)|
|This little outfit came from Target. Thank you Target for having ballet clothes just in time for our party!!!|
|The number 3 was awesome to use for her portraits as well. I'm so glad I thought to add it for a few poses. |
If you have any other questions about any of the decorations, etc. you can email me at Christina.Higman@gmail.com We had a great time. Best of all, Evie Joy LOVED her party. Of course that made it worth all the hard work. :-)
