Nutcracker Christmas Tree

My theme for our entryway this Christmas is "The Nutcracker".

This is the first wall on your left as you enter our home.   You can see the front door reflecting in the mirror.  I have a tulle wreath hanging in front of the mirror....looks like a tutu doesn't it!  There is also a tulle white tree and.....
a pink one too.   I made these trees a couple of years ago...wish I had made more while I was in the mood!
I have a Nutcracker themed vignette on the small table below the mirror....
An aqua Nutcracker...
and my Ballerina Barbie.
I have a skinny tree decorated with some Nutcracker ornaments...

beautiful hand painted rose ornaments....a rhinestone crown...
and lots of other....
assorted ornaments.
I hung a new chandelier in the entryway a couple of months ago.   I bought it at has pink prisms.   I added some shades to cover those bright light bulbs.  The shades were pretty plain, so I hot glued some pink prismed (is that a word) trim to the top and bottom of the shade.

There are three walls in the entry way....this is the second one on the left.  
Here is the link to that post if you would like a better look .....
Here is a little peek at the third wall in the entryway.   I have a large cabinet on that wall, and I am almost finished decorating  it.

I love Christmas.....don't you!


  1. Sooo exquisite Penny... soft and romantic... I just love all of your decorations, and that you use many of the things you already have... I promised myself I would not buy any more Christmas decor this year... But I don't have a single nutcracker... yours are so pretty... I may have to see if Michaels has one... I have a 50 percent off coupon... xoxo Julie Marie

  2. It's all so delightful, Penny. I love the little white trees. My little grand-daughter would think she was in paradise at your home. Have a fun (decorating) weekend. Deb

  11. I love the white and pink colors of your theme. This year I also chose a Nutcracker Sweets theme. Hobby Lobby had some awesome decorations this year didn't they?

  12. Your decor looks like it came right out of a romantic boutique...the kind that when you walk in you feel like you're in another time, another place.

    I have several beautiful pink ornaments also that would be right at home in your place :)
