“Pink is the color that makes everyone look pretty instantly. It’s very girlie and very ballerina …”
~ Bobbi Brown
Recently I worked with Jenifer Hill, owner of Hello Love Designs, on a styled shoot for her son Ethan’s 9th birthday. And if that wasn’t fabulous enough … I was invited back to capture all of the amazing details for her daughter Ellah’s vintage ballerina themed 3rd birthday party.
I was completely smitten when Ellah greeted me at the door dressed in the cutest pink frilly tutu, accessorized with a vintage blingy brooch, sparkly top, ballerina shoes and a darling rosette headband. And not certain how Jen could possibly outdo the movie party … she blew me away with the attention to detail to make her little ballerina’s third birthday amazing!
Guests dined on oven baked ham and cheese sliders, chicken salad croissant sandwiches and homemade pig in the blankets. For dessert … Ellah’s dad Buster made her the most perfect ribbon birthday cake. It was GORGEOUS. There were also yummy powdered donuts, homemade raspberry muffins and vintage glass bowls filled with candy treats. I’m definitely having Jen and Buster plan my next birthday!
And the press printed products for the occasion … were beautiful.
Oh my goodness. So many favorites to share …
This homemade banner by a relative, featured Ellah’s name, and was simply divine!
Loved the idea to use cute cupcake paper liners as sweet treat holders!
Told you the ribbon cake was GORGEOUS! Buster you are an amazing father!
Jen placed two sweet little ballerina photos on the french doors that lead into the dining area …
The party continued in the backyard where a table, covered with a cute vintage sheet, had activities for Ellah and her guests to do.
And now a few of the prima ballerina birthday girl.
This is so Ellah.
And I couldn’t resist ending with these next two …
Miss Ellah, you are beyond fabulous. Thanks for sharing your special day with me!
