If you’re a huge fan of Christmas, then you may already have some of your decorations out already, but don’t neglect the family or living room area where your viewing party will most likely take place!

If you’re in the mood, string some around or above the TV stand; or hang a wreath in the hall so when guests come in they immediately get a peek of Christmas cheer. Oh, and don’t forget the Christmas music for a nice break between movie marathons!

Extra Tip! It’s always fun to get the kids involved and create a fun candy filled gingerbread house while taking in the newest Hallmark flick.

FOOD & DRINK

Whether you’re a culinary master or an amateur cook, these recipes and drink options are both easy and fun to whip up!

For food, doing a veggie plate and dip is always a nice idea, because it’s easy but still gives you that variety you’re after. Even doing lighter appetizer-style food would be a cool idea – mini sliders or trying out a pizza ring can be super fun to do!

For dessert, holiday shaped cookies are always a classic – you can’t go wrong with Christmas trees and Gingerbread men! Fruit pies are also a hit among party-goers, as well as chocolate chip cookies and brownies!

As for drinks, hot chocolate is one of the best bets. Spice it up by tossing in a peppermint Candy Cane for some holiday fun! Or whip up some egg nog for your guests – that’s also an awesome crowd pleaser!

OUTFITS

Yes, sweats and baggy t-shirts are comfy, but so are leggings or onesies, plus the latter feature tons of holiday patterns like snowflakes or Santa hats. Old Navy has some cute patterned leggings that are perfect for the holidays; Kohl’s has some great sleep sets that feature fun sayings and cool designs!

Top your outfit off with some fuzzy socks or furry slippers, and you’re all set to snuggle in for the movies!

*Bonus: grab a Hallmark holiday fleece throw blanket to get really cozy!
