tutu .. twenty two
cue the confetti, it’s time for another hopeless hostess celebratory post! && this post is long over-due, for it reflects my twenty second (tutu) ballet birthday breakfast
the hopeless hostess knows no occasion is too small to celebrate, so of course when her special day comes around she starts the day of right… with a tutu inspired ballet birthday breakfast. she also doesn’t like to break the bank so she whips up a quick pdf invite, and includes it in an email to her ballerina’s to be.
the hopeless hostess knows invitations are only half of the party’s first impression, and the table decor serves as the second. she hangs a few balloons at various heights to create a colorful backdrop and uses pretty pleated tissue paper for tutu trays.
the hopeless hostess lets drinks serve as decor, by choosing colorful options like orange juice, apple juice, cranberry juice and pretty pink champagne!
drinks are just the beginning, the real stars of the table are the fabulous food, the hopeless hostess uses fun sized food for a fancy feel. she picks up small pastries, donuts and cinnamon rolls from the store, serves strawberries and raspberries with cool whip for dipping and whips up ity bitty pretty pancakes (just like normal pancakes, but use 1/3 the amount of batter, if you are a perfectionist planner, use a cookie cutter for perfect circles. pile on three, secure with a toothpick and garnish with raspberries, before serving with syrup, butter & jams).
and the hopeless hostess attends her extravagant events in style, wearing ballet-esque birthday attire with a little bit of sparkle!
i hope you enjoyed my second hopeless hostess post, be sure to check out all of my party planning posts. until next time, stay fabulous!
