Christmas in July! A Festive & Elegant Summer Dinner Party

Christmas in July! A Festive & Elegant Summer Dinner Party

Here’s one way to enjoy the magic of the holidays without the stress of the holiday season: celebrate in the summer! That’s exactly what (social impact brand) ONEHOPE Wine did recently with this festive Christmas in July Dinner Party, which – yes – they did host in July. ;)

While this might not look like your average summer dinner party (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere at least), that’s actually one of my favorite things about it! I always love a clever excuse to treat guests to an anything-but-ordinary experience filled with thoughtful, unexpected details. Plus, any night of the year is a great night for all this gorgeous looking food, right? If you’re hungry while reading this, be prepared, because there are some seriously tasty looking dishes and pin-worthy food presentation ideas coming your way (colorful Roasted Beets and Lemon Cranberry Butter, I’m looking at you!).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Smooth stone place cards with each guest’s name scripted in metallic gold
– Beautiful holiday spread starring Sage Peppered Roasted Turkey + Sausage & Apple Cornbread Stuffing
– Elegant floral designs featuring lush white blooms & mixed greenery + artichoke accents
– Inspirational “thanks”, “hope”, and “dream” sentiments highlighted throughout the menus & framed art
