Little Girl Nutcracker Candyland Winter Wonderland Birthday Party

My daughter June had her 7th Birthday earlier this month, and boy oh boy did I have fun putting it together. Military life was really hard for June while my husband was in the Marines. All the moving around meant we had no family local to us, and it was hard to settle in and make friends (for both of us!) So when we moved after my husband got out of the USMC, it was really on my heart to do a special “over the top” birthday party for her.

I was the best day ever! Literally! So much sugar though.

I asked her what theme she wanted, and in a heartbeat she told me “Nutcracker!” It may or may not have something to do with her being in ballet. Hmmmm.

I totally ran with her idea! I did the food in a whimsical “candy land” theme. And all her little girlfriends wore their ballet clothes and slippers.

We did freeze dance, coloring (I used my printable coloring sheets found HERE, HERE, and HERE), and a piñata that was destroyed like it was the apocalypse of the world (once on the ground all the kids started tearing it apart & stomping on it- haha!)

Little Girl Nutcracker Candyland Winter Wonderland Birthday Party "The Mouse King" Candy

We made “Mouse King” candies out of snickers, almonds, kisses, and yellow m&m’s. These candies and the swirly lollypops might have been my favorite part of the party!

I remember always wanting alllllll the cool rock candy and lollypops when I was a kid. So I went a little crazy on this display.

I was totally going to make the cupcakes myself, but time got away from me… so if anyone asks… I made these, okay? The ballerina cupcake toppers can be found HERE.

She had the BEST birthday. I just loved sitting back and watching all the joy and happiness (and rainbow lollypops, which were the biggest hit with all the kids!)
