Every year we host a family and friends Holiday Movie Night. One of our favorite holiday movies is Elf – a great movie for both kids and adults. I love to create a festive snack table with popcorn and sweets and it’s always a hit.
Pick a color scheme – I decided on traditional red and green since it was the best fit for the movie we selected.
Purchase your favorite movie theater candies – a mix of chocolate and candies are great.
Purchase or pop your own popcorn – I like to purchase popcorn for parties so you don’t have spend the extra time popping it and it doesn’t make your house smell like popcorn.
- platters, trays and tin buckets
- paper bags
- disposable ice cream cups
- scrapbook paper
- paper punch
- mini clothespins
- paper cutter or scissors
- stamping ink
Trim scrapbook paper – Cut the paper so that it fits on your trays or platters. This is a great way to add extra color and pattern to your snack table
Cut paper lunch bags down – use scissors or paper cutter to cut a few inches off the top of the bags to create popcorn bags
Tie ribbon around scoop handles – tie a festive ribbon around the handles of the scoops for extra color and pattern.
Rubber Stamp Ice Cream Bowls – use festive rubber stamps to decorate the ice cream bowls. Its a great way to customize plain white disposable dishes for any party.
Create food labels – Type and print the names of the sweets. Print on coordinating cardstock. Use a paper punch to cut out. Attach to bowls with mini clothespins.
Set everything up and enjoy your party!
My best entertaining tip is to make one part of your party extra special and keep everything else simple. This includes the rest of the party, the party prep and everything else going on the day of your event. This helps you as the host to enjoy your time with your guests and that’s really what holiday entertaining is all about.
When hosting a party I like to keep dinner the day of the party very simple. Walmart’s deli has several great options for a quick and easy dinner – rotisserie chickens, hot wings, ribs, pizza and more. The deli also has some great side dishes including potato salad and a delicious looking kale salad. Don’t forget the Coca-Cola – an ice cold Coke is the perfect pairing to a hot meal.
This season Coca-Cola is partnering with the Salvation Army in providing meals to families through the Salvation Army. Every prepared meal purchased at the Walmart deli with Coca-Cola will help supports this program, helping families in need this holiday season. Share a photo of your family enjoying Coca-Cola and a Walmart Deli meal this holiday season using #GiveHappiness to help spread awareness and help families in need.
The hot meals are available at the deli counter just inside the entrance so it was easy to make a quick stop to pick up dinner.
On a recent trip to Walmart, I picked up a few wish lists from the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree. In my invitation to our Family Movie Night, I suggested that admission to our movie night was an item to add to our Angel Tree donation.
