We Made It - Thursday Link Up

Welcome to my 'We Made It' link up. Thank you for joining me today. I wanted to share with you Amelia's 4th birthday party decor. I don't believe I actually wrote a post about this back then, so here it is. Her ballerina tea party.
I really wanted to make the invitations myself and I was so pleased with how they turned out. I printed the information on a pearly pink cardstock and then drew up my own leotard template. I added the pearl striping that I got at Michael's and then finished them off with a tulle skirt glued on. 

This was Amelia's first birthday party with friends so I decided to make each of the girls a pink tulle tutu. I made the 'Happy Birthday' banner from different colored pink cardstock and cut the letters out on my Cricut. I added hole punches and attached them to a ribbon. My sister and I also made the tissue paper pom poms (which are super easy to make) instead of buying them. 

 For the letter 'A' I used glue and drew designs on it before painting the entire thing silver. I got the cardboard letter at JoAnn's. It does soak up a lot of paint so if you plan on painting a cardboard letter like this, be prepared to add a few coats. 

 For dessert I made cupcakes and topped them with cute ballerinas that I found on Amazon.
