On November 2, Disney brings the magic of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic Nutcracker tale to the big screen with The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, starring Mackenzie Foy as Clara and Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy. Here’s a Quinceanera theme inspired by Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
Take a page from the different realms from the film for a Nutcracker-inspired Quince party!
In The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, Knightley’s Sugar Plum Fairy can be found living in the sparkling Land of Sweets complete with a cotton candy-esque updo and a pink dress with accordion ruffles.
If you’re looking to replicate this look, the dress options below can help you to look as sweet as a gumdrop candy before your big party.
Rose Ruffled Ombré Dress
The cascading ruffles in a tri-color ombré resemble the flowing skirt of the Sugar Plum Fairy. Morilee’s pink ballgown has a jeweled bodice and delicate petal off-the-shoulder sleeves. With such an intricate dress, it’s best to keep your tiara simple with small rhinestones or skip it all together. And, let your hair do the talking.
Blush Halter Dress
If you want to take the cotton candy theme to the next level this blush dress from Q by DaVinci has fluffy clouds of glitter tulle looks almost good enough to eat.
High-Neck Pink Ballgown
Add a floral touch to your Quinceanera dress inspired by Knightley’s Sugar Plum Fairy dress. This dainty dress from Dress We has an asymmetrical top layer of ruffles with a bodice dotted with fabric flower petals and jewels.
Candy Dessert Table
If you would like to provide your guests with a sugary treat besides cake, a tower of macarons in your Quince theme color can stand in for the snow-covered pine trees from Land of the Snowflakes. You can also put crystal blue and white rock candy sticks in jars, set out snowflake-shaped cookies with royal icing edible glitter and a gingerbread house with icing to give it a regal look.
Use fairy lights to your advantage by wrapping the wires around tables, your cardholder at your guestbook table, or even hang them from the ceiling of your Quinceanera venue to give a sparkling aura to your Quince party.
If you’ve found the perfect little Nutcrackers to stand guard at your party tables, then have them match up with your Quince theme color by carefully spray painting and adding glitter to their uniforms.
Do you want your Chambelanes to wear something other than tuxes? A uniform in the style of a Nutcracker and toy soldier could be the answer!
In The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, the soldiers wear red and gold embroidered jackets over tan pants and black boots, and top it off with a helmet. You can sew on gold tassels and embroider swirl designs to a red suit jacket for your chambelanes.
Black riding boots
Skip the usual black dress shoes and style your chambelanes’ outfits with black riding boots and hot glue a golden tassel at the top of each boot for a dignified detail.
Royal guard hat
Your chambelanes need to stand at attention and be at your every beck and call—because you’re the Quince queen! These toy soldier hats are affordable but look like a million bucks.
For your Quinceanera cake, take some inspiration from the three realms of the Nutcracker film: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets.
Land of Snowflakes Cake
Build a multi-tier cake and adorn it with snowflakes to represent the Land of Snowflakes. You can add color by having the tiers be a pastel and aqua blue with white snowflakes.
Land of Flowers Cake
If you really want to go all-out for a Land of Flowers-inspired cake, ask your baker to create 3-D flowers all around your cake. You can place real flowers at the top of your cake as the focal point and keep it simple with the rest of the cake’s icing.
Land of Sweets Cake
If you are taking some inspiration from the Land of Sweets, there are no limits to your imagination! Dust pop rocks all over your cake, create swirl designs with crystal sugar, line the bottom of your cake tiers with gumdrops. Show off your sweet tooth!
