Wintry Sugar Plum/ Nutcracker Wonderland Party!

We decided to start a tradition that every year we would do a Sugar Plum/ Nutcracker party and last year we did a baking party so this year I chose to do a Wintry Nutcracker/Sugar Plum themed party! This has been one of my favorite parties I have done yet! This turned out as magical, sweet, and sparkly as I had hoped! :)


I decided to base the theme around Clara's love for the Nutcracker and her dream of traveling in the beautiful wintry wonderland and seeing the Sugar Plum fairy and her candy kingdom of sweets. I decided to go with a winter white theme and make it all sparkly and magical! I tried capturing Clara's love and wonderment for her Nutcracker and the enchantment she felt and experienced in her dream. 


Here are the pictures from the party and below I will give all the details that went into making this a true winter wonderland Nutcracker party! Enjoy! :)




































Here are the details to this amazing Nutcracker party we had! 




Wendy from Green Beansie Cards, did all the party printables and she did an amazing job designing them! They were sweet and just perfect! Wendy is so sweet and just great to work with! We have worked now on a few projects and she always amazes me with her talent and creativity! Definitely one of the sweetest people I know! :)


We had so many wintry sweets that included cupcakes, marshmallow pops,
 cake pops, chocolate covered oreos, sugar cookies, wintry scones, peppermint bark candy bites and a sweet little ballerina cake that featured Clara and her love for ballet around it. All the amazing fondant toppers were made by Brittany from Editable Details of course and were just beautiful and stunning! They shimmered and sparkled like a winter wonderland! Brittany always creates the most amazing designs! Every time I get a box from her, it feels like Christmas because you never know what you're going to get! 


For the dessert table I use the Pastry Pedestal and made wintry looking marshmallow pops and thought they looked pretty cute! We had an array of winter treats and got some amazing cookies from The Cookie Jar and wintry cake Pops from Bee's knees Creative! Both desserts were just amazing and so yummy! 

  We had a little table for the girls that was whimsical and showcased the love for all things sweet! They found on their table a gingerbread man cookie that they could decorate and also had little bracelets awaiting them with their name on them and they also got to take home a beautifully wrapped gift that had a sweet pajama set with a ballerina tutu of course! They loved the wintry room with all the sparkly sweets and ballerina and Nutcracker touches. 

 It was truly a sweet wintry wonderland filled with visions of sugar plums dreams and certainly sweet things! We had the ballerina dress especially made for this party so my daughter could feel like a true ballerina, didn't Fairytale Jubilee do an amazing job on this dress? We had gone back and forth on doing a Clara inspired dress or doing a Sugar Plum fairy dress and we decided in the end to make the a ballerina dress but make it more like a little dress more so than a ballerina/tutu dress! I think Alisha did a fantastic job and I cannot wait to work with her again designing little dresses for some upcoming projects!


The headband was designed especially to match our ballerina dress by Perfect Petal Boutique, and Angie did such a beautiful job with this headband! It was the perfect hair accessory! She really makes beautiful hand-crafted headbands! :)


Pom Flair was kind enough to send us their sweet and very cute pom cupcake toppers and they worked perfectly with our theme! We also had white poms in varying sizes hanging from the ceiling as well as sparkly snow flakes to give it the winter wonderland feel. :)


We had Amy from Amy Craft Photography come and take some beautiful shots of this party and she really does an amazing job with the pictures! She captures such great memories and keepsakes for us!

It was a fun and sweet party and seeing the look on my daughter's and all our guest was priceless! This turned out to be a wintry ballerina party that any little girl would dream of!


Thank you to all the wonderful and amazing vendors that helped me make this party possible and for adding your special magic to make it turn out as well as it did! I always enjoy working with each and every one of you! :)

I love the dessert table...so pretty. The iron gate was an elegant touch. Is that a mainstay in your home or a backdrop found just for the party?
