If you are having a simple cake, you can decorate fancy with mini tulle pom poms as a topper using the video tutorial above. You can also use them for cupcake toppers to match. Otherwise, other option for a stunning cake would be a tiered all pink fondant cake with tutu around it and at the top, ballet slippers or you can have a ballerina dancing on top of it.
You can use tutus for decoration on a cord along the wall pinned up with clothes pins. That always looks cute above the cake or gift table. Also, you can use tulle to make a canopy and tulle pom poms above the dessert or food table. Even tulle table covering and skirting will look cute. See tutorial video below. They almost make the table look like ballerina. Take advantage of the tulle as much as you can because there is almost no other time in your life to have this much fun with it. Use strips of it to tie bows around the chairs too. That will always work and looks so precious. Who do not love a tulle bow?
