Pointe Shoes and Pajamas Party

When the director of Amanda Lily's dance studio asked me to help her plan a Christmas party for the upper level, older girls, I was happy to help. She had an idea, but didn't know how to make it all come together, so between the two of us, we pulled it off. The party theme was "Pointe Shoes and Pajamas." We gathered old pointe shoes, and each girl had one to paint or embellish. We set up three separate stations, paint, ribbon, and sparkly jewels and feathers.The girls all came to the party in their pajamas, and had an afternoon of laid back fun and snacks.

We decorated the studio's Christmas Tree with the finished pointe shoes, then gave each girl her shoe to take home at Christmas break. Amanda Lily's had a special spot on our tree, although she liked taking it down, and trying it on for size every now and then. Not just yet baby girl, but keep up the hard work, and you'll earn those pointe shoes before you know it. For now we have this one....

This one was Amanda Lily's design.
