Christmas in July Day 22

Posted 07-22-2008 at 10:32 AM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

Day 22 and over at MHH we are talking Theme Parties in our Second Christmas in July Give Away thread.

ConnieChristmas suggested a

Let It Snow Party Ė

I have a pretty good snowman collection going. So I decorate with my snowmen every where. Little white twinkle lights all about. Hanging snowflakes all over the place. My tablecloth would be silver and decorate with snowflake ornaments and centerpiece with silver candles. I think an old sled decorated with lights leaned in the corner some where or in the entryway! (Turn down the heat so the air would be a little chilly!)

Menu for Soup Supper -

Sleigh Ride Stew - White Chili
Tummy Warmer Potato Soup
White Snowflake Dinner Rolls
Hot Chocolate and Eggnog
Snowmen and snowflake Cookie Platter
White Chocolate Mousse Trifle

I would have and activiy table to cutting papers snowflake. And a prize for the one voted best!

Christmas in July Day 21

Posted 07-21-2008 at 02:48 PM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

So it's day 21....if you haven't started yet...you better get hopping.

One of the things I do is look for quick, easy, and cute decorating and gift ideas. Party ideas too if I can find them.

I can't remember who posted this link...it wasn't me...but I do like it and will share it with you here in my blog:

All Things Christmas

Then I print them out....and into my notebook they go...no searching all over when I need a quick and easy idea...I have them filed and ready.

So if you accomplish nothing else this month...print and file some quick, easy, simple ideas for decor, gifts, and parties. When the busy season starts...you will be glad to have them at your fingertips!

Christmas in July Day 20

Posted 07-20-2008 at 06:04 PM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

Ho Ho Ho it's Day 20...and there's still lots of list to check and things to do!!

Today I opened some new threads at MHH for this week of Christmas in July. We will be watching ELF this week and discussing it over at the boards.

We are also going to be sharing ideas for good sites to order Christmas gifts! I personally LOVE online shopping...save a few gifts for the holiday season...so I can still get a taste of the hustle and bustle but no mad dashes through stores for me.

Our second virtual crop will be on Friday ...it's Rudolph Day...and we will be working on crafts off and on all day...checking in when we can to report on our progress. Our Craft of the Week is Christmas Cards!!! But during the virtual crop people can work on whatever project they want.

Well....more tomorrow!!!

Christmas in July Day 18

Posted 07-18-2008 at 02:39 PM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)


Scrapped Calendars are awesome Christmas gifts. Last year I made a 2008 Calendar for my mother in law with family photos...This is the scrapped page for Feb. I used a calendar that had a grid at the bottom and a page protector at the top ...for each month...SO I just had to scrap 12 pages and slip each into the page protector for the correct month. Still looking for the perfect gift for grandparents? Try scrapping a calendar!!
