Xmas in July

Xmas in July

The red and green Xmas decorations can stay in their boxes until December – for Xmas in July, try to opt for silver/ice blue decorations for a true, white Christmas feel.

Christmases in summer with the barbeque on, after lunch-time swims and the late sun sets will always be an enjoyable, Aussie experience. But have you ever wondered how the other half of the world celebrate Christmas?

Having an Xmas in July will give you the best of both worlds – you won’t have to go anywhere, and it will be a white, wintry Christmas, filled with hot chocolates, skiing and daggy Xmas jumpers. Because why have Christmas once a year when you can have it twice?

Read on for some ideas to host an amazing Xmas in July, from food, to décor, to activities.




Christmas in Australia means barbeques, salads and pavlovas – yum! Have you ever wondered why we do an Xmas roast with hot meats when its 40 degrees? If you’re hosting Christmas in July, this is a perfect opportunity to make a delicious, hearty, hot roast, with your choice of meats, veggies and don’t forget the gravy!

Don’t forget to set the table, using a tablecloth and placemats, such as our Nevada tablecloth and Ariel and Shelly placemats to elevate the look.

Trade the pav for a rich, plum pudding for dessert, paired with some delicious custard and watch everyone tuck in for seconds.

For drinks, try and get into the white Christmas spirit, and have some eggnog, mulled wine, and of course hot chocolates on the menu.



The red and green Xmas decorations can stay in their boxes until December – for Xmas in July, try to opt for silver/ice blue decorations for a true, white Christmas feel.

Transform your home into an enchanting, winter wonderland, complete with fake snowflakes, a winter-themed tree, and some twinkling lights. Stick with the blue theme and incorporate some vases with your choice of flowers/plants, such as our Indiana Vase in indigo, or our Luminous Vase in blue.

You can decide how far you want to take it, from hanging stockings, to putting a winter-inspired wreath on the front door, to decorating the whole house!

If you want to take it that step further, you could even bring the theme into the bedroom, with little decorations on the bedside tables, or incorporate it into your bedding, with on theme quilt covers, such as Amelia, Fraser or the Elayna Ash Coverlet.



You could treat this as a regular Christmas celebration, complete with an extended family gathering, gift exchange and Christmas games, or you could start another tradition!

Why not take this opportunity to celebrate all things winter and take a road trip up to the snow, where you can rug up and go skiing, snowboarding or tobogganing? It’s a fantastic activity the whole family can enjoy, while being out in the snow, which not many Aussies can experience!

For something a little closer to home, you could try your hand at ice skating, or if there isn’t a rink near you, even roller blading could be just as fun!

If you’re not big on going out and spending money, stay in and have a movie marathon with all of your favourite Christmas movies. Get the fire roaring, make some hot chocolates and snuggle up on the couch with some comfy throws and cushions.

If you’re getting a bit bored/hungry, you could initiate a bake-off with the family! There are so many easy, sweet treats you could try, such as gingerbread men/houses, choc chip cookies or a Christmas bundt cake. Our Ambrosia range is great for a day inside baking, including an apron, gloves and more!



So if you’re looking for a mid-year pick me up and want to experience a wintery Christmas first hand, give Xmas in July a go!
