With the Boston Ballet's Nutcracker Teddy Bear at the Ritz Carlton Boston

Yesterday I got to check out the Nutcracker Suite at the Ritz Carlton. Does anyone else get excited just saying “Ritz” ? I guess they totally earned their name to be associated with class. The attention to details is redundant to mention and since a picture is worth a million words so I thought I would just share those.

My kids were invited to a mini luncheon, Ritz style, a storybook reading by Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common General Manager Rajesh Khubchandani and cookie decorating with the pastry chef. We got to speak to the suite’s interior designer Michael Barnum of Michael Barnum Studio and honestly it took my all not to kidnap the man and take him to my home to rescue a home currently being decorated by 2 engineers (not a pretty site I tell you).  Also meeting Carrie Dirats, Boston Ballet Stage Manager has whetted my appetite for seeing the show. Kitchen or no kitchen, I may just make it to the show.

ABOUT THE NUTCRACKER SUITE PACKAGE
Starting at $1,350 per night*
Includes overnight accommodations, in a custom-designed suite decorated with holiday trimmings and elements inspired by Boston Ballet’s “The Nutcracker” including a special fairy tutu.  The suite has been generously designed by our friends at Be Our Guest, Michael Barnum Studio and Winston Flowers.  Master bedroom features a king bed; connecting double room is a magical inspired children’s room.  

Special Features include:
– Teddy Bear tuck-in service with a holiday treat from the hotel’s pastry chef, Kerry Meister
– Satin pointe shoe, autographed by a Boston Ballet company dancer
– CD of “The Nutcracker,” performed by the Boston Ballet Orchestra and Music Director Jonathan McFee
– Four tickets to Boston Ballet’s performance of “The Nutcracker” at The Boston Opera House including a post-performance backstage tour
– A Sugar Plum inspired bubble bat from the Land of the Sweets drawn by The Ritz-Carlton Bath Butler
– Overnight valet parking

*The package is also available without tickets to Boston Ballet’s performance of “The Nutcracker” at the price of $950 per night.

But as I said, I could yap forever but I think you should just see the pictures and drool for yourself.
