This gorgeous NUTCRACKER BALLET THEMED CHRISTMAS PARTY was submitted by Chritie Skerski of Flaired Affairs! What a fabulous holiday party theme! I love the muted pink & aqua color scheme…the gold looks fabulous as well! So many darling ideas here…

Here’s what Chritie had to say about planning the party- “I knew I wanted to do a Christmas dessert table this year and I was inspired by recent posters for a local ballet company who performs the Nutcracker annually.. First, while it is a Christmas event, it is outside of what I would call traditional Christmas. Coupled with the non-traditional colorscapes I chose of teal, pink and gold, it felt a little bit out of the ordinary just as I wanted. Add a dash of sparkle, and it was magical. One of my favorite elements of the entire style were the little party guests all painted up as their favorite character – Oh What Fun We Had!

There were two dessert tables filled with so many goodies! There were vanilla bean cream filled cupcakes that were crowned with toppers by Hot Mama’s Bakery along with matching sugar cookies. A beautiful adornment and equally tasty were the French Macarons by Crazy about Macarons – just gorgeous. The true sparkle on the table was the Glam cake pops by The Sweet Tooth Bar ~ goodness gracious, they were fab eye candy! One of the tastiest treats was the Nutcracker sweets cookies by The Cookie Jar. Another dessert table favorite is the chocolate covered Oreos by Sweeties by Kim. And rounding out the mouth watering, melt-in-your-mouth treats were raspberry meringues by Maddie’s Meringues.

The party guests were also a treat to invite. The little guests that dined on all the desserts were face painted by hand by Playful Paints to match their favorite Nutcracker character. They were served sparkling mocktails while they ogled over their little gifts from Santa. These little beauties were the glitter and sparkle for this party.”
