With the holiday season right the corner, there’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with a nice, cozy blanket, a Christmas movie and a cup of hot cocoa. We all have some movies that we watch every December, whether it’s by ourselves, with family, or with friends. If you aren’t doing it already, let’s try something new this December-- how about it? Let’s try to replicate movie scenes from our favorite holiday movies! It’s time to get some Christmas decorations so we can do this.
We all remember “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and how the movie has developed into an annual tradition for many families. Unfortunately for Brown and the gang, their Christmas tree had just one ornament on it for quite some time.
Party Cheap has a Green Christmas Tree that you can use to replicate the tree seen in the aforementioned movie. Start by putting one small ornament on it and then place more and more on until you have something that looks similar, or better, to the final tree seen in the movie. The tree measures 11 inches high, so it is a neat, inexpensive way to bring one of your favorite movies into your home for the holidays. The success of the holidays isn’t in the beauty of the Christmas tree, but a nice one doesn’t hurt right?
You can also add to the “A Charlie Brown Christmas” theme by sprucing up your dog house (if you’ve got one, of course). Decorate your animal’s home - whether that be a dog, cat, bird, fish, you name it - with Christmas lights and you are even more in the Charlie Brown spirit. Throw in a Santa hat or other festive cap for your bird, dog, or other animal friend (just like Snoopy in the film) and his or her outfit is complete!
Despite being first published almost 60 years ago, that hasn’t stopped the next iconic movie on our list from finding its way onto televisions these days. This timeless American classic is “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and with a little effort, you can bring it to life in your home. If you have a fireplace, decorate it like it was seen in the movie, or add your own unique flair to it. Need a quick reminder of what it looked like? Check out this image.
If you don’t have one, purchase the Fireplace Insta-View. The sheet of plastic is large (38 in. x 62 in.) and the high quality design gives it an authentic feel. Party Cheap also has some Mini Christmas Stockings that will add to your fireplace scenery. There is space along the top to write names and you can even put some small stocking stuffers in them. Just like you see in the image related to the movie, hang Party Cheap’s Foil Merry Christmas Banner above the mantle. The silver fringed banner measures eight inches tall by five feet wide. Add some lights to the fireplace as well and you have yourself a unique Christmas decoration idea. Just don’t let the Grinch steal your Christmas!
