'Tis the season for holiday festivities, and we're making a list (and checking it twice) of fun and fresh Christmas party theme ideas. So let's get down to business and start with a simple celebration dusted with a hint of holiday magic. Neutral Nutcracker: AKA the Pinterest-worthy Christmas party of your dreams! Think sparkly tableware, neutral toned accents, and desserts straight from the Land of Sweets.
This nutcracker party calls for lots of neutral Christmas decorations with a few dashes of red here and there. (We’re feeling neutrals as of late, especially when it comes to holiday home decor, in case you missed our Christmas living room blog!) We can never pass up a holiday balloon garland, so we created one in peach, white, and gold. To jazz it up a bit, we tied some shiny red and pink bows throughout.
While we love it for this theme, balloon garlands are also fabulous for any celebration, especially if you’re planning a nutcracker birthday or sugar plum fairy party!
This nutcracker inspired table setup is truly the star of the show. If there's one thing we love most for holiday parties, it's versatile tableware. And that's why we're pining over this gold leaf collection and how stunning it looks amid any holiday party theme. Layer some silk ribbon down the table for a DIY runner that is reminiscent of ballet slipper ribbon ties!
Seriously though, if you're after classic holiday tableware that works with all your Christmas decorating ideas, look no further! These gold foiled beauties are guaranteed to serve up all of the holiday cheer no matter the setting.
And if you don’t get around to using them this holiday season, they’re still an excellent addition to birthday parties, bridal showers, and wedding anniversaries!
For this holiday party, we layered these adorable nutcracker Christmas tree plates over top to tie into the theme. There's something so timeless and magical about the Nutcracker ballet, so we love when we can incorporate bits and pieces of it into our holiday decorating. We also added red cutlery, a peach striped table runner, and a few other classic party decorations.
For a pop of color among our neutral decorations, we included a few floral accents from Hazel Gardiner. These gorgeous floral Christmas crackers are a necessary addition to any holiday party. Not only do they make a unique piece of table decor, they're also filled with fun Christmas treasures that both kids and adults will adore!
We know what you're thinking, and yes this stunning floral centerpiece can be yours too, (and it’ll last forever!) Another delicately crafted creation from Hazel Gardiner that we have not stopped obsessing over. This centerpiece will make a beautiful statement at any Christmas party, but we think it's especially fitting for this enchanting neutral nutcracker theme.
Another way to make flowers last forever? Put them under the tree! We’re obsessed with this floral jewel-toned tree skirt, which matched perfectly with the ribbon accents throughout this fête.
And let’s not forget the dainty desserts. Since the Nutcracker celebrates all things sweet, we made sure to incorporate some buttercream frosted cakes topped with peppermint surprise balls. The finishing touch to a sensational celebration!
So, have these neutral hues and nutcracker details inspired the holiday hostess in you? We certainly hope they have! Here's to merry and bright Christmas parties all season long!
