We wanted to celebrate winter with a theme that is whimsical and dreamy, something that would spark the imagination, so what better theme than The Nutcracker!! We incorporated from stunning balloon installations to a pair of cute life-size Nutcracker balloon mosaics with darling faces, to whimsy details that elevated this celebration. In terms of hues, we used beautiful pastel colors like pink, mint, whites and silver for a little sparkle. To complement this 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. It's not a whimsical Nutcracker party without the "Land of Sweets", and for this we used a candy cart full of exquisite treats from spun sugar confections that resemble heavenly pink clouds, to mini beautifully decorated desserts, to french macarons with intricately painted characters, to gorgeous gourmet handcrafted lollipops and fanciful nutcracker iced confections that were individually-wrapped. We can't forget about the stunning and delicious confection mouse cake pops that were inspired by one of the main characters from The Nutcracker Ballet, the Mouse King. The three tier cake was nothing but whimsical...a dream confection! Every single element and color of this magical theme was perfectly represented, this cake was more than just a sweet treat - it was a visual focal point.
Please have a seat! The beautifully styled tablescape welcomes each guest with a personalized snowflake that can serve the dual-purpose of being used as a name card and as a keepsake. We were able to incorporate the color palette and theming through coordinated plates, cups and napkins. Each guest enjoyed individually-pack treats in neatly on-themes cones. We loved styling this party and enjoyed working with our amazing vendors. We hope this party makes you dance and twirl!
