Ladies Holiday Movie Night

Ladies Holiday Movie Night AK Party Studio

The most wonderful time of year can quickly turn into a crazy time of year
for most mom's I know. So why not take a night with your closest friends to relax, laugh and enjoy the season. I invited a few of my girlfriends over for dinner and a movie. One of my favorite traditions of the holiday season is watching my selection of Christmas movies. I have my favorites that are watched each year, the classics and some new ones. We decided on Irving Berlin's Holiday Inn, such a cute movie and perfect for a ladies night in.

I made sure to tell each lady to come in their cozy attire. Before the movie I treated everyone to a nice dinner. I kept the dinner and decorations pretty simple. I created a table in my living room by using a wood slab on a large ottoman, laid pillows out on the floor for each guest. The table was set up next to the fire, it created a cozy atmosphere where all the girls could get comfortable.

I set the table with buffalo check wrapping paper turned table runner, clipped a few cedar and holly sprigs from my yard, then laid them down the middle of the table. I kept the dishware simple with white plates, champagne flutes with stripey straws and copper plastic ware.

I took a small cedar sprig and tied to the knife and fork. So pretty and super simple.

I love adding candles to any table setting, I found these darling mini lanterns at the dollar store and they worked perfectly for this centerpiece.

I love that you can use already existing holiday decorations to spruce up any party. Look around your home and see what you have, no need to spend a bunch of money to make a pretty tablescape.

Each guest received a little gift to take home. Each box was filled with delicious chocolates, then topped with a fun gift tag and mini wreath.

After dinner we all filled our cups with a festive drink and curled up on the couch for movie time. I made a big batch of hot chocolate with an adult twist.

Boozy Hot Cocoa
6 cups of milk
1.5 cup of hot cocoa mix
3/4 cup of Vanilla Vodka
Whipped cream, for topping
Heat milk in saucepan until it starts to steam. Whisk in hot cocoa mix and continue to cook until desired temperature is reached. Do not boil. Remove cocoa from heat and whisk in vanilla vodka. Pour into cup, top with whipped cream  or add a candy cane, enjoy!
