If you have access to a portable stage, or to using an auditorium for a venue, both would create a realism to the Ballerina theme that is fantastic.

To decorate for such a beautiful theme, you can go all-out with tulle to fill your space with a true dancing vibe. Lining the tables with tulle gives a full effect that is absolutely adorable or make tulle poms to hang from the ceiling.  You can make tassels to hang as banners along your back drop with a variety of shades of pink fabric, you can also use silver or gold as another color in your palette as an accent to your decor.  Sprinkles of confetti shaped as ballerinas or glitter on the tables adds a sweet touch that is very simple to do. This is also a wonderful theme for breaking out those favorite vases of yours with floral arrangements in light pink shades. You could even bring a vintage touch and use antique trays to hold your snacks and treats.

Let your treats and snacks complement your colors by covering them in pink or silver/gold frosting.  Pretzel sticks turn into delicious and beautiful snacks with a little pink chocolate on them.  Pink Wafers and Cake pops are a perfect size treat to munch on. Add a little tutu on the cake pops. Mini-cupcakes are great for little fingers and create a little less mess when chomping. You can also find sweet little candies like mints to add to the mix. This would be a great party to have little finger sandwiches and crackers and cheese or a fruit platter.

The cake for this event should reflect your little one’s love of everything ballet.  Create a look of pure decadence with a tiered cake dressed as a dancer, the bottom tier can be the tutu and the topper a tiara for a gorgeous effect.

To keep your guests busy, you can use a mock stage to put on a ballet show, have them dress up in tutus and tiaras and dance to some lovely classical beats like Nutcracker. Having a color section set-up the children can color some ballerinas of their own to take home for fun.  One other unique activity could be setting up a craft area and letting each child create their own edible jewelry from licorice strings, round candies or cereal.
