We recently celebrated one of my favorite spring events: the girls' ballet recital! In years past, we have had dinner before the big show, but an earlier curtain call this year made a traditional meal seem a bit heavy. So instead we sampled a variety of appetizers and desserts. Here is a view of our dining room before the recital.
For this special performance, we brought in an understudy for our traditional dining table: our patio table dressed up in 40 yards of tulle. It looks pretty good in costume, doesn't it? To make this large tutu, I simply followed the instructions for making little tutus. (Find a tututorial here.)
