Nutcracker themed Christmas tablescape
If you are looking for some ideas for your Christmas tablescape I may have some inspiration for you... especially if your a fan of Christmas nutcrackers and pink things
Last year I created one of my favorite tablescapes yet. No doubt because it waspink! I chose a nutcracker ballet theme, in pastel pinks, gold and tiny touch of blue.
I had so many messages on Instagram asking for more pics, so who am I to deprive you?
I always feel like if I get my Christmas flowers perfect everything else will fall into place with ease. Because I love fresh flowers, I feel like the arrangements for Christmas, in particular, have to be the absolute best they can be. The pressure can be quite a struggle. Last year's florals were my absolute favorite to date. Luckily the florist had all of my perfect shades in and made creating this so much easier.
As I said earlier, I am always happiest with the final outcome when I use my favorite colors so this theme was undoubtedly going to be a big hit with me... and who is there to please if not yourself!
I chose a combination of the following. White hypericum berries, pink tulips, lilac hydrangeas, pink avalanche roses, and white ranunculus. I miraculously managed to get my hands on some beautiful king protea in the most beautiful shade of baby pink which really made all the difference to the finished look.
I buy alot of my table wear vintage from a fabulous seller on Instagram called a vintage affair. Pat the owner also trades at some of the markets around Cheshire, I actually discovered her at Altringham market and she is one of my best kept secrets!
These plates in particular are one of my all time favourites and really helped to create an intricate and pretty look. I also loved how they worked with my pink and gold stemware.
Using our main Christmas tree as a glittery backdrop for the table, something I haven't done before, really amped up the festive vibe and created a magical and glamourous feel for Christmas dinner. Something I always try to do when creating is to think outside of my usual box and not allow the usual constraints to apply if you want to move your sofa to create a different vibe, so be it. If you'd like a new backdrop... change it up. It's only temporary and can really give a fresh look and feel to Christmas.
To complete, I found the cutest nutcracker biscuits to tie the whole theme and look together. Not to mention the small fact that they are absolutely delicious and serve as the prettiest petit fours!
I hope this post gave you some ideas for your Christmas tablescape! Please let me know if you re create this, I would love to know :)
