Merry Monday: Storybook Christmas

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

to all a good night 1 Merry Monday: Storybook Christmas

Merry Monday everyone.  We are full of holiday inspiration today. Every year, when The Nutcracker comes to NYC, we know the holiday season has arrived. We received this beautiful photo shoot from Xiomora at A Styled Fete, which was inspired by that classic story, as well as holiday stories like The Night Before Christmas and Twelve Days of Christmas. We LOVE how Xiomora creatively tied in storybook quotes into the dessert spread, like the “five golden ring” donuts, visions of “sugar plums”, bowlful of “jello”, the “eight maids a milking” milk bottles, and the “partridge in a pear tree” cookies.  And how great is that reindeer/sleigh cupcake holder?  Other fun details included a hot cocoa bar and a garland filled with Christmas storybook quotes.  The theme for this holiday party is perfect for adults and kids. Ho Ho Ho down to the bottom for the vendor credits.

Check out some more holiday inspiration here and here.

      Thanks for all your kind words! I had so much fun putting it all together. I rented the coffee server from a local Company. It was truly beautiful in person.
