As summer makes its way across the country, another Christmas in July season comes with it. This time of year presents a great opportunity to beat the summer heat by recreating the joy of Christmas. Some choose to invite their closest friends for a cozy gathering while others have the entire neighborhood over for a backyard bonanza. Whichever you decide, be sure to announce your party with panache by reading these creative Christmas in July invitation ideas from Tree Classics.
The “Sand Snowman”
Do you wanna build a “sand snowman?” Recreate everyone’s favorite frosted character with a summer twist on your next beach getaway. Afterwards, take a photo of yourself sitting next to it and use this photo to create postcards that double as Christmas in July invitations.
These candy cane-inspired “sunnies” are fun accessories with a Christmas twist. Attach a card tag to a pair and they become a fun party-favor-and-invitation-in-one. What’s great about this is that your guests can wear the quirky sunglasses to the party. For extra variety, send them out in two colors—lipstick red, and forest green.
The Message in a Bottle
For a true-blue coastal party invitation, do away with the envelopes and use novelty bottles instead. Roll up your invitation and place it in a bottle together with some sand and shells to recreate a miniature seaside scene. You can tie the invitation with a small ribbon or use a wax seal for an added touch of class. This invitation is perfect for a Caribbean-themed pool party or a beach luau. For a more compact alternative, use small test tubes in lieu of bottles. Novelty bottles are available at The Original Message in a Bottle™ Shop.
