I fell in love with a set of nutcrackers last year and when visiting the stores again in Estes park today , I did some research to find out what brand they were. They are Hollywood Nutcrackers, designed by artist Holly Adler.
These are my favorites. I love the colors!
I'd also like to have this set for my dining room.
And for a more traditional touch, they have red, white and green pieces too.
