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

From last two years, I and my friends celebrate Christmas at Julgalan in Sweden and off course, we have been booked tickets for this year also. Actually, we are waiting for that day because many of the top artists are going to perform at Julgalan (http://www.julgalan.se/). In addition to that, after the performances and show they offers very tasty Christmas dinner.
