We survived the first week of school, woohoo! Brody and Skylar both love their teachers and I am happy to report that my kids are currently enjoying school. Skylar always loves going to school, but Brody prefers sleeping in, going on vacations, and the lazy days of summer. So I was really surprised and happy to hear him say one morning before school last week, "I'm excited to go to school today".
Now that the kids are back in school, I finally have some time to blog again. And since Christmas in July is a popular thing in the blogging world, I thought I would create an inspiration board for a summertime Christmas party. I know it's August already, so I missed the whole "Christmas in July" fun, but in reality, living in Florida, it can feel like a summer day when December 25th comes around so you can use the inspiration for a winter Christmas party in Florida as well.
When it comes to planning any party, I instantly think of what the kids would want. So when planning this inspiration board, I pictured a fun after-school play date in our back patio with Brody and Skylar and their friends. So there would be lots of finger foods (both sweet and healthy), and frozen hot chocolate as their drinks (and dessert!). As for decor, I would use some fun polka dot and striped printables that I created for a family Christmas party a few years ago. I am obsessed with polka dots and stripes when it comes to party decor! Just click on the links below to go to the original source of inspiration.
I found this super-cute card from Paperless Post that would match my polka-dot themed decor. Click on the photo below to check it out, or go HERE to check out their whole Christmas card collection.
Hope this post inspires you to get ready for the holiday season, better early than late! :-)
