Countdown to Christmas in style this year with a fun holiday crafting party, Christmas cocktail recipes, and Hallmark Channel Christmas movies, of course!
There are SO many great Hallmark Channel Christmas movies that I love – Crown for Christmas, The Christmas Card, Most Wonderful Time of the Year – and I can’t wait to watch all of the new movies that premiere this year!
World Market is super excited to have partnered with the Hallmark Channel this holiday season and is looking forward to having their customers shop the store for their favorite holiday items, including unique ornaments, imported traditional holiday food and beverages, and more.

For party goods, the first place that I always head is my local Cost Plus World Market in Roseville (you can find your local store here) because the staff is always super helpful, and World Market always has the very best Christmas Party Foods! Plus, Cost Plus World Market and Hallmark Channel have teamed up this holiday season for an exciting sweepstakes where YOU can win a walk-on role in a Hallmark Channel Movie, so it was kind of a no-brainer decision! I grabbed a bunch of yummy ready-to-eat goodies that aren’t just your standard fare. I love that World Market has such a great selection of unique and international foods to wow my guests!
I also picked up some Retro Christmas Decorations for my party table (I love, love, LOVE vintage-style Christmas decorations!) along with some Essential Barware that I’ve had my eye on for a while.
I’ve had these Gold-Rimmed Bubble Glass Champagne Flutes and Gold Faceted Decanter on my wishlist for a while now, so I knew that my cocktail party was the perfect excuse to pick them up! Aren’t they pretty?
I thought that an apple and pomegranate champagne cocktail would be perfect for the holidays in those new bubble glasses, so I grabbed some yummy Pomegranate Nectar and Apple Juice from World Market as well.
For those who don’t like pomegranate-apple flavor, I also picked up this fun set of Champagne Toppers to make other flavors of mimosas and bellinis. YUM!
In no time at all, I had my party table prepped and ready for guests! I am head over heels for those awesome Gold Scalloped Paper Snowflake Lanterns! I chose to keep mine unlit, but they’re designed so that you can add a hanging light kit if you wish. SO pretty!
This adorable Embroidered Holiday Wreath Towel reminds me of one that my grandma always used to put out for the holidays when I was a kid, which makes it totally perfect for a vintage Christmas party!
Of course, you can’t countdown to Christmas without an appearance from Santa, and this Retro Paper Santa is the cutest!
I set out all of the very best movie snacks to eat while we watched Hallmark Christmas movies – Moose Munch, European Cookies, Star Mince Pies, and my favorite, Santa-shaped Biscoff Cookies.
This Orange and Cranberry Panettone was also a big hit with the party guests!
I filled the gold decanter with champagne and set up a DIY cocktail mixing station with the pomegranate and apple juices as well as the flavored champagne toppers.
To make the Pomegranate Apple Champagne Cocktail, start by adding 2 oz of pomegranate nectar to the bottom of the champagne flute.
Add 2 ounces of apple juice.
Top the glass off with champagne, and garnish with apple slices and a sprig of fresh rosemary.
This cocktail is festive, bright, and incredibly refreshing! YUM!
These drinks and snacks were the perfect party pairings – a little sweet, a little salty, and a touch of spice – everything holiday party foods should be!
Of course, the champagne drink toppers were also super popular with our guests – and who could blame them for loving them?! They’re branded with adorable sayings and taste totally scrumptious!
There’s nothing like holiday crafting with your friends while sipping yummy cocktails and watching Hallmark Channel Christmas movies!
We all made these cute Mini Felt Hoop Ornaments to decorate our Christmas trees along with some adorable Snowman Bath Bombs to gift to our friends! You can get the directions for both of those projects just by clicking the links, so be sure to check them out!
The Hallmark Channel Movie Night party was such a success that I foresee this becoming an annual event around here! SO much fun!
