Aliyah’s The Nutcracker Themed Party – 1st Birthday

Ok, ok, I’ll admit it. I still got some serious post-holiday season hangover and I think I’m not the only one. For those of you who are still dreaming of a white Christmas, I’m glad that Aliyah’s party will somehow make us relive some magical moments even for a few more minutes. You see, Aliyah’s 1st birthday party was held last December 28 so having this theme for her first birthday party sounds perfect to me. A timeout from all Disney Frozen and Winter Wonderland themed parties, Aliyah’s birthday celebration flawlessly captured the delicate balance of 3 different elements together. Careful not to make everything look too outrageous, I was glad that Kathleen managed to make this party look so harmonious. A ballerina party with a touch of Nutcracker in a pink and gold winter wonderland setting, here are some lovely snippets of Aliyah’s whimsical girly fête captured beautifully by Jo Lim Photography. Enjoy!

With a cute ballerina-inspired gown complete with headdress and ballet shoes, see Aliyah’s adorable birthday frock.

Here’s the Nutcracker standing on guard at the entrance to welcome Aliyah’s guests to her party. PS: Pink X Gold. With these 2 colors together, everything was instantly girly-fied!


Attached to their ceiling setup are snowflakes, paper pompoms and medallions all in pink and white to provide a sweet ambiance to the venue.

Aliyah’s stage backdrop looks so pretty! The Nutcracker, cutie ballerina, white Christmas tree and the added gold letter standees look very dainty as a whole. Actually, there’s something about this backdrop that simply evoke an air of pure lavishness.

Their table centerpieces look extra girly as well. To make sure that the theme is very well-connected with their decors, beautiful ballerina silhouettes and mini white Christmas trees were injected to these beautiful floral arrangements
