Happy Christmas in July!
Our little family started celebrating Christmas in July last year as a diversion to all the BS that was going on in our lives. We need a break. A fun, silly thing to do that was just ours. So, Christmas in July was born.
This years theme was turquoise, fuchsia and peppermints. I made a felt banner garland for the tree and cut out some felt ornaments. Someday I will get industrious and actually pack up a Christmas in July supply box instead of winging it.
The theme and color selection was courtesy of this cake from Sam's that was our dessert. It is too hot to bake and the candy making supplies are in short supply this time of year. So, we had cake. And, really, what's better than a "birthday" cake when it's not even anyone's birthday!
Santa and the mini BBQ grill are always a part of Christmas in July. It's summer, baby!
Gifts consist of "stuff we have around the house" which this year consisted of tote bags, books, cookie mix and other miscellaneous items. My Mom gifted me our family Super Pickle and Super Hot Dog from when I was little. Christmas in July this year was only me, my mom and The Bean 'cause The Breadman just doesn't "get it". But, that's okay - we had fun and that's all that counts.
Happy Christmas in July to YOU!
