Christmas means a lot of things to a lot people, from family time to spiritual reflection to fun and games. One thing everyone agrees on, is that the Hallmark Channel Christmas Movies are the perfect reason to throw a party!

Hallmark Channel Christmas Movies

Gather your friends and plan a Hallmark Channel Christmas Movie viewing party, complete with a hot cocoa bar. This year, there are 22 all new original holiday movies on Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas. A new movie will be premiering every Saturday and Sunday night at 8pm/7c. The Countdown to Christmas programming event even features holiday movies 24/7!

Plan Your Decor

Browse World Market, either in person or online, and see what Christmas decor catches your eye. I fell in love with the little red and white rustic houses and built my decor around them. I stuck to mostly red and white accents, including the food, with some rustic touches here and there.


A tiered stand is a fun way to display your festive mugs and looks great on a red stripe table runner. Stack a bottlebrush tree on top of a galvanized cake stand for more dimension on your table. Because this is a viewing party, set up the hot cocoa bar on your coffee table so guests don’t have to leave the living room. We wouldn’t want them to miss part of the movie!

Hot Cocoa Fixings for All

The best part of planning a hot cocoa bar is deciding which mix-ins to include. World Market has endless shelves full of Torani syrup and sauces, which are a must-have for any drink bar. I personally love caramel, vanilla and peppermint syrups for hot cocoa.

Don’t forget to grab hot cocoa mix, a bag of marshmallows, crushed candy canes and chocolate chips. Peppermint stir sticks add a festive touch. I recommend placing all of your fixings in glass jars, so guests can easily scoop and enjoy.

Holiday Treats for Nibbling

You’ll want to put out a few munchies that guests can enjoy during the movie. World Market has no shortage of delicious snacks and Christmas party food! I found Walkers Gingerbread Man Cookies, yogurt peppermint pretzels, hazelnut rolled wafers and salted peppermint bark while roaming the aisles.

Make sure to grab a bag of Chicago Popcorn Mix, it’s always a hit at any gathering and the perfect snack for a viewing party!
