Christmas in July - A Sugar Plum Ballerina Party!
Since the weather in upstate NY has been more December like than July like lately, it feels extra appropriate that I'm flashing back to the winter months in today's blog. Last year I started offering Sugar Plum Parties in the spirit of holiday magic, and everyone's favorite ballet, The Nutcracker. The parties were such a hit that I'm totally planning on bringing them back in 2017, but maybe with a few fun changes.... TBA, so stay tuned! Until the hap-hap-iest season of all, remember, you can always dance on the daily with me, enroll in a camp, or book a birthday dance party; there's so many options to get your dose of dance, I make it that easy for you! ;)
It is extra fun when I get to party with people who love to decorate and get into a theme as much as I do, and that was definitely the case for this particular Sugar Plum Party. I mean, look at these adorable decorations! Banners and cupcakes and hats were all on hand to get the dancers in the mood to have sugar plums dancing in their heads!
After reading the story of The Nutcracker, the dancers and I marched like toy soldiers, sprinkled sugar plum fairy dust around the room, and galloped through the Land of Snow. Oh, and everyone got their very own tutu to wear for our party, which just makes everything more awesome, dontcha think?
All my parties include a craft to tie our theme together and provide some hands on sensory time, so for this Sugar Plum party, the guests made their own crowns. Stickers, sparkly gems, and markers were all on hand for the kiddos, and man, did they let their creative juices flow! It's always so fun to see their creations and hear them talk about their work!
So. Fun. Right?! Ah, I just get all warm and fuzzy remember all the fun I had with these kiddos! Will you be partying with me come December? Holla at me and let me know!
