Christmas in July table
I found these plates last spring and thought they would make a great Christmas in July table.
I'm reusing the pink candleabra I painted for the baby shower.
The small tree is TS and I added the hearts to mimic the plates.
I decided not to light the candles, cause it is just too hot.
The flatware, silver S & P, Santa, and pink candles are NOT TS. Everything else is TS including the linens, dishes, glassware, and silver butter dish.
I really liked the design with the pink, but knew I probably wouldn't use it around the actual holidays, so that is why I chose the Christmas in July table.
The Santa is one I have had for several years. He has pink accents so he coordinated well with the plates.
It is so hot here (although not as hot as Phoenix, LOL) that the thought of Christmas seemed like it would feel a little cooler.
We have had such unusual weather that our golf courses are dying because they got sooo wet it deprived the roots of oxygen, and then the heat hit, and it basically boiled the grass and it just died in a couple of days!!
We had so much rain in less than 2 weeks that the weather forecasters said if it had been snow it would have been almost 5 ft. of snow!!
It has been a crazy weather year for sure, first a drought, then May rained all month, and now rain and heat!!
Weird weather for sure, although we are not in the heat dome that is so bad in the midwest, thank goodness.
Anyway, hope my Christmas in July brings some cooling thoughts to everyone affected by the heat.
