This nutcracker Christmas bedroom is full of all the SugarPlum fairies and dancing nutcrackers of the season. See all the tips and ideas here.
Did I ever mention I danced on my toes when I was younger?
Toe shoes and lambswool and wrapping my feet up and I perched on the end of a pink satin shoe with ribbons wrapped around my ankle.
I was the worst ballerina you’ve ever seen.
My feet hurt and I couldn’t balance properly and I broke my toe and I’d fall over in second position and my pirouettes looked like a wet noodle.
And so it was that after two years of dancing, I gave up my dreams of one day becoming the sugar plum fairy.
I just decorate like one.
Here’s the cutest Nutcracker bedroom decorated for Christmas.
Nutcracker Christmas Bedroom
The whole idea for the bedroom came when I found these nutcracker pillows. Look how cute. There’s Clara and the nutcracker and the Sugar Plum fairy and the mouse king.
They come in a set of four, but I only used two of them on the bed. The pillows are under $14 for the set of four.
I also added this bed in a bag/seersucker comforter set and the BEST hotel pillows. I know I talk about them all the time, but they are on sale for 40% off right now and we have them on every bed in our house.
On the other side of the room I added some bottle brush trees.
Here’s a similar set that comes with tons of “nutcracker” colors.
The tag was made my by sister several years ago with these map sticker letters.
Over the mirror, I hung this knitted “PEACE” garland from Target.
You can see it here.
I added a nutcracker tree to the room.
There was the CUTEST 20 piece-nutcracker set on Amazon for about $22.
The tree also has white pom pom garland and white crocheted snowflakes.
Next to the pillows on the bed, I added a Santa my mother made from my grandmother’s quilt.
Then I added more bottle brush trees and this advent calendar from Target.
You can see it here.
All the doors open up and I added a nutcracker standing sentinel.
I wish I could go back and tell my toe-shoe self that it was going to be okay.
Life will go on after dancing on my toes.
The Sugar Plum fairy will live on in my heart.
We go see The Nutcracker every year for Christmas and the twins and my mother already have our tickets for this season.
I can’t wait to see the Sugar fairy dance across the stage…
…just like she’s dancing on my tree. 🙂
PS I added all the sources (and a few other nutcracker suggestions below) if anyone has dreams of a dancing Christmas room, too.
