So by now, anyone reading this on a regular basis has figured out I was a ballerina…for 20 years!  I love all things ballet: blush pink, satin ribbon, and especially wrap-around sweaters.  (Clay loves my rainbow-striped legwarmers….)  The words “Grishko”, “arabesque” and “ron de jambe” may not mean anything to you…but they make me smile!  

The Nutcracker Suite is a ballet tradition.  It’s performed in nearly every city and Clay and I were introduced thanks to a Nutcracker performance…but again, more on that later! 🙂  Blog hopping tonight I ran across the most adorable party idea EVER by Kate Landers, featured on the Hostess’s blog and I had to share!  From ruffled table linens, to sweet Nutcracker treats, the details are spectacular!  If this party doesn’t tug at a ballerina’s heartstrings….
