Welcome to the Holiday Party Blog Hop with Oriental Trading

I absolutely adore The Nutcracker. It doesn't feel like Christmas unless we have been to the ballet to see this beautiful performance. Since we are such huge fans of The Nutcracker, I thought it would be fun for my daughter to invite a few of her little friends over for a Nutcracker party of her own.

Here's what you'll need:

These unfinished nutcracker ornaments were the perfect craft for the kids to do. They loved painting their little guys all different colors and were so excited to bring them home to hang on their Christmas trees.

Here's a quick and easy project to add to your Nutcracker party decor. 

I simply cut out an image of Clara dancing with the Nutcracker on my Cricut machine and adhered it onto the canvas. Super easy, right?! I love how it turned out!

Dress up tiny boxes with red and white bakers twine and fill them with goodies for the kids. I used my Cricut machine to cut out images of the Nutcracker and Clara and turned them into tags to attach to the boxes.

Fill mini favor pails with treats and attach vinyl images of your favorite characters from The Nutcracker. They look extra adorable placed on top of a cake stand!

This gorgeous turquoise chandelier from Chandelier By NK  set the stage for the party. Instead of hanging it, I thought it looked beautiful sitting right on the display table. What I love about this chandelier is the bright, happy color and the custom sparkling crystal. You can customize your chandelier and swap out the crystal for another color. The possibilities are endless!

After the party, my daughter was thrilled to have the chandelier hung up in her bedroom. The early morning light shines through the crystal and sparkling rainbows dance about the walls.She LOVES it!

Nothing says festive like banners and garlands!  I found some cute Christmas fabric and made made mini banners to string across the backdrop. I love the red and aqua color combo and was so happy to find this darling wool ball garland to incorporate with my banner.  

The little girls had so much fun at our Nutcracker party and are excited to see the ballet this holiday season!
