Entertaining Christmas is a Hallmark Channel original movienthat is premiered on December 15, 2018, as part of the channel's annual Countdown to Christmas event.


Liz is a cookbook author, crafting expert, and television personality whose name is synonymous with perfection. As she contemplates retirement, her daughter Candace is poised to become the new face of the Livingstone brand. The only trouble is, Candace can't cook. Or sew. Or do any of the signature things her mother is known for. When a young girl posts a video online requesting Liz help welcome her deployed father home for Christmas, Candace is sent in her place in an effort to prove herself a worthy successor to the board of directors and win the job. As Candace does her best to make a good impression, she gets more than she bargained for when the young girl's uncle John turns out to be a reporter for the local paper, looking for his next story.
