Snow White Dance Recital After Party

Our daughter recently had her first dance recital.  Performing on stage was a HUGE milestone for her, but it also presented me with a whole new uncharted category of things to celebrate: a spring dance recital!  It was so much fun to plan a small “after party” for our family to celebrate her accomplishment.

The song to which her class danced was “Someday My Prince Will Come,” so I decided the party should be a Snow White themed party.  I was absolutely thrilled to find paper plates and napkins on Amazon that matched both the theme and her recital dress perfectly.

The Snow White/Dance Recital theme had so many fun possibilities.  I got out my artificial apples since apples are obviously a big deal in the Snow White story and collected various ballerina toys from around our house to use as decorations.  It was a very simple party (just Jimmy John’s sandwiches and fruit since we were at the recital all afternoon and didn’t have time to prepare a big meal).  However I still wanted it to look a little bit fancy since it was a very fancy event in our daughter’s mind (lipstick was involved, so of course that meant it was a fancy event), so I added gold doilies and gold plastic utensils.

For dessert we ordered cupcakes from a local bakery and had them topped with apples and ballerinas to round out the Snow White/Dance Recital theme.

It ended up being a very cute and fun celebration.  Maybe a little too much fun – our daughter has decided she wants to sign up for dance class again next year.  I just hope that I can find paper plates and napkins that match her recital song and costume again so perfectly next year!
