Good Witch star Rebecca Dalton will headline the new Hallmark Christmas movie Christmas By Design. In the movie, she plays a designer who gets the career opportunity of a lifetime and ends up falling in love.
“Charlotte (Rebecca Dalton) heads back to her hometown and finds her work, and her heart, inspired by Spencer’s (Jonathan Keltz) love of the holidays in the all-new ‘Christmas by Design,’” reads a promotional post on Hallmark Channel’s Facebook page.
New Hallmark Christmas movie
In Christmas By Design, Dalton stars as Charlotte, a luxury fashion designer who works tirelessly to make a name for herself and her New York City boutique, Alastair. She is thrilled when she finds out she is a finalist in a competition to create a Christmas-themed collection for the home and family brand of the prestigious Warwick department store.
The only problem is, Charlotte is just not that into Christmas. She can barely remember the last time she put aside her work long enough to visit with her family. When a pipe bursts in her apartment, she takes it as a sign that she should go home and experience a family Christmas that to inspire her next design.
When she arrives in her hometown, she gets dragged into the town’s annual 12-days-of-Elfcapades event. She meets a handsome mechanic (played by Jonathan Keltz), who helps run the festivities.
Despite a rocky start, the two form a deep connection. Charlotte gets the creative spark she so desperately needs to inspire a new Christmas design, one that is completely different from anything she’s done before.
