Jodie from the Party Parlour wanted to create a fun whimsical Christmas setting that captured a childlike joy of Christmas. With her team they created a Christmas setting that adults and children could enjoy together. The Meri Meri Nutcracker party items inspired the design.
The dining table was soft, pretty and metallic. Each placesetting features a layering of metallic plates, and a Nutcracker character added with using Christmas crackers, cookies and cupcakes. The tree was also soft, snowy and pastel with lots of fairy lights. The collection of wrap, ribbons, giftbags and tags was created to compliment this theme. Soft blues, pinks and mint greens with metallic gold accents in the ribbons and tags. Nutcracker soldier Christmas tags added the theming to the gifts and provided a lovely connection to the rest of the house and table decorations.
The cake, macaron towers and cupcakes were non-traditional Christmas treats but they wanted something “fun and festive” to suit the tastebuds of adults and children alike. The macaron tower gave a lovely Christmas tree shape and the decorated cake was not only whimsical but “pumpkin spice” flavour which added a taste of Christmas. The addition of Christmas star and “Joy” toppers really connected them to the Christmas theme. The cookies were designed to complement the Christmas crackers and the cupcakes were all about the “tutus” to bring in the nutcracker theming.
