Can’t think of a theme for your next summer soiree? Throw tradition out the window and plan on hosing a ‘Christmas in July’ party! When I first got into the invitation business years ago I saw a customer with this party theme and it took me back! A Christmas themed party…in July?! It sounded kind of crazy, but the more I thought about it, the more I began to think about the festive, magical and warm feelings and gestures made around the holiday season that I love so much! Why not take a break from the fireworks and barbecues and bring back a little bit of what we all love so much about the winter season?!
When planning your party, be sure to invite guests you know will play into the party theme. You can even ask guests to wear their ‘favorite’ ugly Christmas sweater for a contest. Serve up light holiday fare of eggnog, cookies, Christmas candy and fun holiday appetizers. Add twinkling lights to palm trees and hang ornaments and suns around your event area for a little holiday-mixed-with-summer magic. Send each guest home with a unique party favor like mini stockings stuffed with sunglasses or suntan lotion or a beach bag full of candy canes or Christmas cookies.
