Christmas in July Party Tips

This year more than ever seems to be a perfect time to plan and host a Christmas in July party. With so many of us missing the opportunities to be with our families this holiday why not have a fun and exciting family get together in the sun! Like the idea? Here are a few tips and trips to help you plan the perfect event.

Spin on Christmas Desserts

Have some fun with desserts for your Christmas in July Party. Nothing says summer like Watermelon, but instead of traditional slices cut them to look like Christmas trees! The rind is perfect for the tree trunk. Or take strawberries with a bit of sweet whip cream to make mini Santa’s… warning… you might feel a bit naughty as you take a bite. Snow cones are another festive yet easy treat to prep. Need help with desserts? Check out Lee n Eddies dessert catering menu.

Enjoy the Holiday Music

With such a stressful year, turn on the Christmas tunes as these have been shown to improve your mood and health. Turn it on early to help relax you while you prep your party and leave it on to create that holiday atmosphere for your family and friends.

Snow Becomes Sand

You can’t truly have Christmas without some presents. For the kids, grab some small toys and bury them in some sand. Use red and green colored pales and scoopers for a great holiday scavenger hunt. While you are having fun in the sand… challenge the entire family to a sand man building contest!

Water Fun

There is so much you can do with water to keep the family cool. One of Lee n Eddies favorites is to fill up white water balloons for a snowball fight or pull out the red and green pool noodles for a candy cane battle. The smiles and laughter will fill the air!

Holiday Table

Summer is fun not stuffy so take the holiday table outside. Consider planning a BBQ to keep the fun going outdoors as there are some great holiday colors to be had on the grill. If you need some grilling support Lee n Eddies offers drop off BBQ catering or on premise staff to make sure you can put the tongs down enjoy the fun with your family! Have fun this summer and whatever your party plans are we hope you enjoy the time spent with family and friends!
