Tablescapes, Hallmark Christmas Movie Table


I have a confession to make…

I love Hallmark Christmas movies!

You know there is going to be beautiful holiday scenery

romance, conflict, a snowball fight, a Santa, and a happy ending!”





Welcome to a Hallmark Christmas Movie Table!




Our family tradition is to gather with extended family for lunch on Christmas Eve





Over the years the family has grown so much it’s hard to believe!




We let the little ones sit at the table while the adults mingle and nibble





There’s something for everyone, even reindeer kibble!




A busy Christmas village runs the length of the table




Santa’s driving his Caddy, while the reindeer a rest in the stable





There are Christmas Cottages and a Christmas Tree farm





There will be a no touching rule so nothing sees harm!




Each place has a small stocking with a candy cane treat




And near by is the Elf to make sure the children stay sweet





There are cookies for Santa and very special letter





A children’s tree in the corner





Can it be any better!!!





The chandy has cotton and sparkles and things all aglow





And also a big ball of green mistletoe





and, just so you know,


Santa will be dropping in to say Ho Ho Ho!

    I just caught a wonderful holiday movie on Lifetime called Noel. After watching our Hallmark channels over and over again, I’m glad I decided to scroll through the listings. It’s great. Merry Christmas, Jenna.

    How picture perfect for “any town” in Hallmark Christmas movies. I’m a Hallmark movie junkie too, and always look forward to seeing the little towns all decked out for Christmas. Your table captures the feeling perfectly, Jenna. I know the kids will love it all. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

    Oh this is such a clever and adorable idea Jeanna. I like the idea of the little ones seated and entertained with the enchanting village to keep them entertained, charming! I know your family look forward to this family tradition in your family. Your home is so beautifully decorated and I know there will a great menu. Enjoy my sweet friend, this is wonderful…….

    Oh my goodness Jenna. Loving your Hallmark Christmas table! So much fun and colorful. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. Such a cute table, and great theme. I like the Hallmark Hall of Fame movies as they have a bit more substance than the simple romance ones, but there are a few of those I like too. If you haven’t seen One Special Night with James Garner and Julie Andrews, it is well worth the time.

    I like to catch the Hallmark movies too. We have a few favorites, especially the one with Ed Asner who owns a lumber yard/mill and a soilder comes to his town to say thanks for a Christmas card that his daughter had sent, one of many to different troops. Or the one where the Uncle, a retired policeman is flying to his nieces and meets a nice guy on the airplane and due to a snow storm, ends up taking him to his nieces for Christmas. Do you know either of these two movies? They are really good, better than most. Your table is delightful! I’m sure Christmas Eve will be a fun, treasured memory with all of your family present! Merry CHRISTmas to all! 🎄😃

  9. Jenna, what a fun table for the grands and I always love your poems! I have only seen one Hallmark movie this year, where does the time go? Merry Wednesday❤️

  10. Rosie M. says:

    Fun, fun table. Sure to bring smiles all around. You are definitely making memories for the grands that will last a lifetime.

  11. Sharon Mann says:

    I can see you had lots of fun with this table. I do like a good Hallmark movie every Christmas too!

  12. What a NEAT idea!!!!!!! Liz (Home & Gardening With Liz) and I were just talking about Hallmark movies last night! What a great concept for a tablescape! I’m sure the kids (and adults!) loved it! The kid tree is cool, too!!!!!!!!!!! Santa’s white caddy is fun! Santa must be doing pretty good these days to be able to sport a Caddy!!!

    • Thank you Alycia, I felt like I was playing with dolls again as I found things for the village, it was lots of fun. I am going to remove some of the delicate things before the kids arrive! Santa in his Caddy is one of my favorite decorations! You take care of yourself and I hope you with have a Merry Christmas and your family waits on you hand and foot!

    Adorable Jenna…and I confess I do love Hallmark movies too…even though I know each line that will be said and the wonderful happy ending and there is nothing wrong with that, is there? And have you noticed that thee Christmas decor is so beautiful in the little towns and homes. I always think to myself, why with as little money/budget as these movies most likely have, can they come up with such gorgeous scenes…it is magical. I love your centerpiece, how original. The chandy caught my eye too. Merry Christmas dear friend.

    • Thank you Kari, yes even though all the movies are predictable I think that’s why I love them, and I ALWAYS cry!! 😂 I know you’ve been asking Santa for a well foot this year!

  14. Cyndi Raines says:

    JENNA! My coasters came in today’s mail! 😃 Lucky me! Thank you! Please know I put my everyday coasters away and my sweet gift is promptly stacked on display on my living room coffee table. So cool! Merry Christmas to me, hehe! 🎄🤗

    • Finally!! I am glad you got at least one set, the other one is still out there somewhere!

      • Cyndi Raines says:

        This is the original package as the date said 12-3, but the postmaster put a plastic bag around it with a note saying the package had been damaged and an apology. However the coaster were fine and I love them . They are so bright and festive! Thank you so much! Merry Christmas! 🎄🤗

      • Oh this is a Christmas miracle!!! Well guess what, you’re getting a birthday present too!! ❤️

  17. I love it when I see the same Christmas dishes I have on someone else’s table and how different it looks! You nailed it with the centerpiece — it DOES look like a Hallmark movie. (But in a good way!)

    I loved your poetry, as always, Jenna! I confess that I think I have watched every single Christmas movie on both of the Hallmark channels. I know, they’re predictable, but I’m like you, and love the happy endings, and the pretty scenery. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones.
