Nutcracker Place Card Holders + Favors

Emma here and if you follow our Twitter, you know it’s been taking every fiber of my being to NOT start playing Christmas music yet. This year is Baby Andrew’s first Christmas and I just can’t wait to fill the house with the smell of sugar cookies, play this album on constant repeat, and string lights on the tree to show him the magical holiday. It’s only the first week of November and we’re already seeing Christmas trimmings at nearly every store, so I guess it’s never too early to prepare. Right? ;) When I spotted these mini nutcracker place card holders (which can multi-task as favors, too) I could not wait to share them with you.

Nutcracker Place Card Holders

They’re perfect for Christmas themed weddings, Holiday parties, or for your own stash of holiday decor.

These nutcrackers are so stinking cute.

Are They Just Like the Real Thing?

They sure are! They even have moveable parts, according to the item description.

The Details

These hand-painted wood figures feature faux fur trim and stand at attention at each guests’ place setting. Comes in the assorted colors, as shown. Colors can not be separated. Each nutcracker includes glue dot to affix the white, blank place card to nutcracker head; as there is not a slit for place card.
