Ballerina Birthday Party Decorations

Decorations for a Ballerina Birthday Party can be done simply and inexpensively. This 3 year old birthday party was a hit!

The banner below was created using a chalkboard banner I received as a gift. You can find this similar product at JoAnn Fabrics. The ballerina image is a free downloadable vector designed by The paper fan is one of a pack of 5 Paperchase Card Fans from Target used throughout the house for the party. They will later be used in our daughter’s ballerina and flamingo themed bedroom.

This cake was homemade and topped with cut-out ballerina figures using glittery scrapbook paper and wooden skewers. For the cake and frosting recipe, see here.

Happy Birthday Adelyn

A paper birthday photo banner was made using black and white photos printed on cardstock, hung using clothes pins and twine.

The walls were decorated with 2 inch gold or pink glitter polka-dots and ballerinas made using the remaining glitter scrapbook paper from the cake toppers.

Several strings of tissue paper tassel garland were made with 3 colors of tissue paper and twine. I followed this great tutorial from to make the garland. The tassels are easy to make. I love the look of them, but they were a little more ‘putzy’ than I prefer for quick decorations. I’m not sure I would be motivated enough to do it again.

  1. That looks wonderful! The decorations are great and the cake is beautiful! My daughter used to be a dancer, so she would appreciate this theme. Great job!

    1. Thank you! They were a labor of love and not my favorite to make but I also love the look of them! I saved them for another year or to give to another mom for a girl-birthday party.
