Easy Entertaining with a Soup & Movie Party

Easy Christmas Movie Party Entertaining Ideas

We love having people over this time of year and having Christmas movie-watching parties! They are so fun to do, everyone loves Christmas movies and they make for such a relaxed get together. You can have just a few people or a lot!

One of my favorite places to go for party supplies is Dollar Tree. You can throw a much more budget-friendly gathering when your supplies don’t cost a fortune. I recently found out about the Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club and in looking around there I found the perfect idea for our next get together!

Clam Chowder and Sourdough
When you sign up for the Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club (which is FREE!) you get access to all kinds of fun project ideas that change every month! You can even save or print out the project ideas to make shopping and creating easy. This month they have an idea for using Bite Sized foods at parties. How perfect is that for a Christmas Movie Party?!

I love serving soups at these parties, they are so easy to eat and super easy for me to make. On the day of a party the last thing I want to do is spend all day cooking (and cleaning and decorating and everything else I’m supposed to be doing lol) – so I usually throw a soup in the slow cooker. I can put it together in the morning and it’s ready by party time – all I have to do is put out things to go with it! Easy peasy.

Clam Chowder Soup

The  Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club idea is for Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese sandwiches, which I love, but I wanted to do something a little more hearty so I made up our favorite Clam Chowder. It’s full of potatoes and clams and bacon. Super yummy.
I topped the mugs with cute little slices of sourdough bread. Perfect for dipping in warm clam chowder.

Now everyone can sip their chowder and cozy up and watch White Christmas at the party!

    I like the snow globs made from wine glasses. I took my 9 yr old granddaughter& helped her get materials to make a set for her teacher. Great idea.

    I like the pint jar cookies. It’s a great size so you can do a lot without breaking the bank and they’re very cute and easy. Thank you for the chance to join and enter.
