Every summer temperatures soar near 100 degrees around my daughter’s birthday so this year we cooled things down by having a Nutcracker themed party complete with snowflakes sprinkled throughout the décor.
I used snowflake themed household items such as placemats for the backdrop of the dessert table, napkin holders to display the cake pops and votive candleholders for the cupcakes. Doilies accented in fabric replicating falling snow hung next to small doll versions of Clara and several ballerinas.
Each little girl received a Nutcracker themed mask, coordinating tutu and a Nutcracker ornament displaying her name – which also doubled as a place card holder at the table.
Fun activities for the girls at the party included stringing ballet beaded necklaces, having their hair swooped up into fancy ballerina buns, dancing to the Nutcracker music and whacking the mouse queen piñata.
