Music boxes that opened to reveal twirling ballerinas were once the mainstay of little girl gifts (in our day, at least). Now, there's a modern version that offers an experiential twist: the ballerina birthday party.

After all, there's something magical about the timeless appeal of satin shoes and the flounce of a fitted tutu. Ballerinas are glamorous, graceful -- and perfect for a birthday party theme. We'll look at some pretty ways to make this party come to life.

Of course, the best way to launch any kind of party is with eye-catching invitations. There are plenty of places to order customized invitations online, such as TinyPrints or AmyAdele. If you enjoy a hands-on project, you can opt to create your own embellished invitations. Using pink scrapbook paper, cut out a leotard and affix it to pre-folded card stock. Then, cut tissue paper into a strip about 4 inches (10.16 centimeters) wide and 12 inches (30.5 centimeters) long. Fold the tissue paper into accordion pleats and paste it to the leotard at the waist. Top it off with a piece of pink satin ribbon at the waist, which has a twofold purpose; it hides the edge of the tissue paper and adds decorative touch.

Now that you've got a birthday theme -- and the invitations -- it's time to do some party planning. We've got entertainment that's just right for budding ballerinas, next.
