Every year as I decorate for Christmas, I deliberate over where to put the Nutcrackers. This year I started them out on the window sill in the entry, moved them to the dining table, then to the console table and back to the dining table again. (Being a detail oriented, aka perfectionist, person has its drawbacks).
I love how this Nutcracker is guarding the empty vintage German candy tin. I intend on buying some pecans to fill in the tin.
My favorite Nutcracker is the music box. Can’t you just hear the music? So romantic!
As I set out my Southern Living inspired place settings,
I discovered that I had three of these little Nutcracker plates. I set out two; one at each arm chair.
I love the whimsy the Nutcrackers bring to the dining room. They are in the dining room to stay!
Until next time,
I’m linking to:

And speaking of parties, I have a Show & Tell party going on now. I hope you will consider linking up.
