Christmas in July Party Ideas:
Food, Drinks, Decorations
& more for a fantastic party.
There's a saying that goes 'Christmas comes but once a year', but that's not true anymore! The popularity of Christmas in July parties has taken off, and what started as a fad down under has now spread to the United States as well. Christmas in July, otherwise known as 'half Christmas' takes place on July 25, exactly 6 months from the original Christmas date. The Christmas in July party idea began in Australia and New Zealand, where July 25 falls in winter, and wearing a cheesy jumper fits right in with the weather.
It's safe to say that ugly Christmas sweaters are the costume of choice for these parties. My Ugly Christmas Sweater has the largest selection of vintage Christmas sweaters and has been shipping down under for months leading up to the holiday. Here in the states, having a Christmas party in July demands a certain level of creativity, like how to make your pool seem festive, or how to serve cold drinks that have a holiday feel. We've put together the best ideas for a Christmas in July party, and you can see them all on our pinterest board dedicated specifically to this annual event.
