Whimsical Pastel Nutcracker Party
Whimsical Pastel Nutcracker Party Details:
This is what was shared about the party-
Inspiration & Decor
“We wanted to celebrate winter with a theme that was both whimsical and dreamy, so we decided on The Nutcracker! First, for our color palette, we used beautiful pastels in pink and mint and then added white and silver for a little sparkle. Then, we incorporated stunning balloon installations, life-size Nutcracker balloon mosaics with darling faces, and other whimsical details that elevated the celebration. Moreover, to complement the theme, we added beautiful ombre pink Christmas trees as well as giant snowflakes and cutouts of the characters from The Nutcracker, Clara and the Mouse King.

Balloons: La Vie Posh

Balloon Mosaic: Mia Emma Love Events
The amazing 5ft tall balloon Nutcrackers were the talk of the party! From the pastel colored uniform to their darling faces, the perfectly executed nutcrackers reigned supreme!
Desserts & Cake
It’s not a whimsical Nutcracker party without the “Land of Sweets!” So, of course we used a candy cart full of exquisite treats. Treats included spun sugar confections that resembled heavenly pink clouds, mini beautifully-decorated desserts, french macarons with intricately painted characters, gorgeous gourmet handcrafted lollipops, and fanciful nutcracker iced confections. Plus, we can’t forget about the stunning and delicious confection mouse cake pops! They were, of course, inspired by one of the main characters from The Nutcracker Ballet, the Mouse King.
Finally, the three-tier cake was nothing but whimsical. It was a dream confection! Every single element and color of the magical theme was perfectly represented on the cake. It was more than just a sweet treat, it was a visual focal point.
