Hello, Design Dazzle readers! I am Dawn of Revel and Glitter, a lifestyle and entertaining blog. I’m thrilled to be back for my 11th Christmas Wonderful, sharing my love for the movie Elf. Did you know Elf turns 20 this year? To celebrate such a momentous occasion, I’m sharing Elf movie night ideas to help you spread the Christmas cheer. Keep on reading to learn more…
It’s always in our holiday movie rotation, so I’m excited to find ways to share the love. We hosted an Elf Movie Watch party a few years ago, and recently, I created a shopping guide. It features some of my favorite Elf-themed finds that were newly released to celebrate the anniversary. You’ll see a few of them here, I couldn’t resist!
It was so fun, finding different ways to highlight some of the movie’s moments…how many can you spot?
- Set the scene with white paper snowflakes and fans and finish off with this exclusive Son of a Nutcracker banner.
- I love using wrapping paper to cover tables. This gumdrop pattern is perfect, after all, it’s one of the four main elf food groups.
- How thrilled was I to find the peppermint candy and gumdrop garlands?
- The paper plates and napkins are definite must-haves, at a minimum, they easily set the scene.
The snacks are the most important part of movie night, and this large tray was the perfect starting point. It is all about the sweets, no healthy options here….
- Along with fun fixings for hot cocoa, (yes, we had to have snowmen and snowflake marshmallows) it has quintessential movie-watching snacks like popcorn and M&Ms.
- Check out the limited-edition sweets and treats inspired by the movie, like swirly twirly gumdrops, mellowcream (similar to candy corn) candies, and maple syrup-flavored goldfish grahams shaped like various characters.
- Be sure to have lots of candy canes and frosted chocolate fudge Pop-Tarts.
- Of course, no Elf party tray would be complete without a Santa cookie, after all, we know him.
I hope you have been inspired, it’s nice to meet another human who shares my affinity for elf culture. Need more holiday inspiration? Visit my blog for lots of Christmas ideas from shopping guides to entertaining ideas, like my Hallmark Movie Watch Party.
