One of my favorite bridal shower themes is Ballet, with the romantic, airy fabrics of tulle plentiful in the décor, classical music playing, bridesmaids wearing their hair in classic ballet buns, and tiny, delicate finger foods on the menu, petits fours for dessert and a cake featuring a gorgeous ballerina.

As an added special touch to theme this Ballet party, use plenty of those lovely ballet terms, as names for the guest tables, on the dessert table, as named signature cocktails, any way you wish! Here, from the American Ballet Theatre Dictionary are some terms to inspire you!
