If you’ve been around this blog for a while or simply know our family, it’s no secret that we have a deep love for holiday movies. It’s simply not Christmas without at least one viewing of some of our favorites. Truth be told, the other 11 months of the year, we aren’t big TV watchers. But this time of year you will find us gathered by the fire with some festive treats and a Christmas classic.
Tonight we will be kicking things off with a White Christmas movie night.
Of all the Old Hollywood films, White Christmas ranks near the top of my list. It’s sweet and funny and oh… the style! The glamour of the costumes and the incredible set design; it keeps me coming back year after year. I dream not only of a white Christmas, but of being able to sing like Rosemary Clooney, dance like Vera-Ellen and spending the holidays in a rustic resort.
Our family evening will be complete with making paper snowflakes.
And of course there will be snow, Snow, SNOW-ball cookies.
Begin by cutting your sticks to size and staining them. I thought that I would use popsicle sticks, but I found these craft sticks which are thinner and have a square edge.
Remember this is going to be rustic so I just cut the sticks with my husband’s tin snips and quickly wiped them down with the wood stain. This is so much faster than doing a life size board!
Now you’re ready for the fun part.
What is your Christmas decorating style? Do you gravitate toward the glamorous or rustic? What holiday movie will you be watching first this season?
