NUTCRACKER Pop Up Dinner:
Want a night of fantasy, dancing, holiday magic, and enjoying Christmas foods and beverages? Then this is the dinner for you!
The NUTCRACKER Dinner Experience:
As guests arrive they will enter into a private garden maze. Check in at our Christmas tree receptionist area and follow your string straight on over to the Land of Sweets to find the Sugarplum Bar. Enjoy the open bar with hot spiked ciders, candy concoctions, and fruity mystical flavors. While our Chefs prepare dinner, enjoy some holiday activities with your friends, such as creating a holiday wreath, a Christmas floral centerpiece, or try to sound like the chipmunks by trying out some helium beer. While you wait enjoy some holiday appetizer favorites and look for the hidden nutcracker in every realm.
After cocktail hour has concluded, guests will move further into maze and into the Land of Flowers. Completely surrounded by flower installations, our Chefs will introduce the first 2 courses featuring floral flavors, while attendees enjoy dancing from surrounding ballerinas as they tell the iconic story of the nutcracker. Next guests will travel to the realm of Snowflakes for the next two courses. Immersed in a forest of Christmas trees and snowflakes hanging above, the story continues as the ballerinas continue to tell the story of the Nutcracker. For the last course guest will travel into the Land of Amusements, which concludes all four realms. Filled with amusement park and carnival inspired designs, guests travel into a tent for the last portion of the story.
To conclude the night, attendees get to take a picture with Santa, as well as meet with the Chefs and dancers of the night.
Enjoy a little slice of fantasy with this magical holiday getaway experience.
