We have a bit of a nutcracker collection happening in our home. In previous years, they have taken up every flat surface in our home, resulting in a cluttered, unfocused hot mess. I’m fairly happy with how we’ve displayed them this year, contained in one space — the ledge that is on our staircase landing.
As I mentioned earlier this week, I want to do something with the art in that space for next Christmas, replacing our paintings temporarily in favor of something more “holiday-ish”. But that’s another project for another day!
Our nutcracker situation also got me thinking about nutcrackers, and how they’re such a classic Christmas symbol. I searched around, and pulled some inspiration for other ways to incorporate nutcrackers into holiday decor.
I have fond memories of seeing The Nutcracker downtown Chicago as a little girl. I can’t wait to take my boys here in DC!
In the meantime, they’ll have to just enjoy our collection!
