Thanks to Oriental Trading for providing some of the products mentioned below.
Father-Daughter dances seem to be the quintessential standard for many schools across America. Attending a NYC public school, I never had an opportunity to attend one growing up. When the PTA of my daughter’s school decided this would be the first year we would host a Father-Daughter dance, I was excited. I knew my daughters would love to attend, and I knew we could set a new standard for a NYC school. Being on the PTA board myself, I was excited to join the planning committee for this exciting event. The first order of business, set a budget!
Once we had a budget and knew what we were working with, it was time to start the finer details. Food, beverages, decorations, details, details, details. Our theme was “Winter Wonderland” and knew the girls would immediately think of Disney’s Frozen. Along with individual photos of each girl with their escort, we made sure everything was picture perfect with backdrops and decorations. When planning for these smaller details, there was no question about using Oriental Trading. All the parents on the PTA board use Oriental Trading for their own child’s birthday parties, so it was a natural fit to use Oriental Trading for this Father-Daughter Dance. Oriental Trading was gracious enough to help us out with our short budget and send us some items that would be perfect for our Winter Wonderland event.
Blue, light blue, and white table covers adorned our dessert tables while the girls each received a snowflake wand upon entering the event. A local dance instructor was hired to teach the girls dance moves as they glided in the gym as little princesses. This truly turned out to be a remarkable event that I’m sure the girls will talk about for years to come. I can’t wait to see how this first ever experience within our school will shape future events.
