This year, Alicia mentioned to me that we should do a Christmas in July and wouldn't it be great to do it when she was in town with her kids so that she could see her aunts and cousins as well! So, we began planning our Christmas in July with crafts, food and swimming! You may remember that I shared the invitation I came up with on this post. (The invitation for Christmas in July is available on our subscribers only page that you will have access to if you opt into follow us!) Lindsey said that we could have the party at her house where we could all swim, as well as eat and do crafts. We came up with some simple crafts for kids and adults, we also made some super cute decorations and we made the food potluck and asked for a holiday twist if possible. It was mostly fun just being able to get together and enjoy each other's company without feeling rushed. Here are some of the simple things that we did:
Watermelon Stars and Santa Hat Strawberries! The Strawberries were filled with coconut cream whipped cream so that they were vegan for Maddy to enjoy with us all.
A Christmas tree made out of fresh veggies. We served them with hummus, pretzels and ranch dip.
The Cottage Market and LDS Lane had designs I loved.
Now, this is a great opportunity to show you how some of my grandchildren enjoyed the party! Please don't mind my post swimming look!
