One of our favourite cosy Christmas activities is snuggling up together to watch a film. Here are our four essential movie night ingredients – what are yours?

A movie, of course

It doesn’t have to have a Christmas theme but we like a film that all ages can enjoy together. The girls love films I used to watch as a child such as Mary Poppins and Charlotte’s Web, and the Wizard of OZ (so long as L’s sitting on my knee when the witch appears!) This year it’s going to be The Polar Express – have you seen it?

A cosy cover to snuggle under

We like a huge blanket that accommodates everyone, so usually pull the duvet from the girls bed. This year we’re decked out in the Ella bedding set from Feather & Black. We’re one of the official testers of their childrens beds range and B picked the pretty Ella set for her room.

Something yummy to eat

It’s got to be popcorn. We like to make some fresh and add our favourite Christmas flavoured sugar on top. I spotted these boxes made from paper plates on Pinterest and think they’ll be perfect for popcorn.

Something delicious to drink

If you’ve seen The Polar Express you won’t be surprised that the drink we’re going for is hot chocolate. Sadly, we don’t have the dancing waiters but our hot chocolate will be extra special because we’re making it with this hot chocolate on a stick idea from Holly Bell.
