Winter Nutcracker Birthday Party
Winter Nutcracker Birthday Party Details:
This is what Julie shared about the party- “The Nutcracker is an iconic holiday tradition. The Nutcracker ballet, originally scored by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, is a household tradition for many worldwide during the Christmas season. And, with its popularity as with many theater performances and children’s books, it has become a popular party theme.
When working on this design concept, we wanted to create something with nods to some of the primary elements of the performance, while keeping it something easy to replicate at home.
A white floral petal sheeting attached to the wall using a staple gun became the backdrop. A 4 foot tall alpine Christmas tree lit with white lights was the centerpiece of the display. To either side of our holiday tree, we displayed hand painted; hand-cut wooden characters from our Nutcracker collection. Proudly displayed as colorful showpieces were Clara and the iconic Nutcracker.
Softness and Glitz
To bring softness and a nod to ballet, we added this floor-length pink table skirt around our table anchored in a crisp white table linen. For sparkle and a nod to winter, we sprinkled gold glittered snowflakes across the tabletop.
Our buttercream birthday cake was dressed up with colorful sprinkles around the base and this laser-cut acrylic “Happy Birthday” cake topper designed from original hand lettering.
Vanilla buttercream cupcakes topped with confetti sprinkles were elevated by placing them into gold confetti paper cups and by adding gold glitter ballerina toppers. We also offered party guests an assortment of mini treats displayed in a gold three-tiered server. Chocolate truffles and mini cupcakes were elevated by displaying them in handmade white lace wrappers; it’s the smallest detail that can make the largest impact on a party’s design.
Desserts were served on our exclusive collection of Nutcracker paper plates, featuring a trio of the Christmas tree, Clara, and the Nutcracker and then the Nutcracker himself. Our new tabletop collection features two dessert plate designs, a dinner plate and paper cups, all in our modern Nutcracker design with a refreshed color palette.
Party guests took home vibrant magenta and teal holiday ornaments with personalized favor tags. During the holidays, Christmas ornaments are the perfect accessory for any dessert table, doubling as décor and a favor.
We hope you found inspiration in our ideas for your next holiday gathering or celebration”!
