Hallmark Movie Night

Is the month of December, with all of the fun parties
too short, or is it just me?

We decided we needed to get together one
more time in January.
Our after Christmas celebration consisted of
a get together with our Lunch Bunch friends
for a late afternoon Hallmark movie for the girls.

I had surprised the ladies with these Hallmark
Christmas Movie watching tee shirts for their 
Christmas presents.  

So we all wore our shirts and I also gave them
a T-J-Maxx shopping bag that reads
"I enjoy long romantic walks through T-J-Maxx.

After the girls' late afternoon Hallmark movie,
the guys joined us for dinner and then a movie
they would like more (although several of them
enjoy Hallmark movies too.)

Hubby really got into it with his special shirt - 
"All I want to do is make Christmas cookies,
drink hot cocoa, and watch the Hallmark Channel."

Barb hosted the event and set a beautiful
table for us, with red and green and white

Gold flatware and red goblets completed
the fun table.

She topped the stack with darling covered
copper soup bowls.  It has been so fun watching
these friends learn to tablescape too!  Of course,
I get the blame for their expenditures on dishes now!

We decided on a light tomato soup
and salads for our meal - since we had
all indulged heavily over the holidays.

I did dip a few fresh chocolates.  These
are my new favorites! I will share these
new recipes on a Valentine's Day post.  

We decided this was such a fun activity 
we don't need to wait until Christmas -
Valentine's Day Hallmark movies will
be starting soon....

I will be posting this with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. I love us and that night was so fun! Thank you for documenting it!

  2. Os bolinhos de chocolate parecenças deliciosos. Abraço.

  4. What a fun day to spend with friends - my husband got "into" the Hallmark movies this past Christmas season and we enjoyed many of them!! And I agree, sometimes December is just too short to squeeze in all the special events and parties!!

  5. We watched two winter Hallmark movies last night! Barb is a fantastic hostess. I can tell y'all had fun! I love your shirts and shopping bags!

  6. I watched movies, and HMM while I was under the weather. Don't they make you just feel better! I love how you spend time with special friends. Cute tees and y'all look adorable! Barb's table was lovely and all those goodies to eat! Have a great week......
