One way to make Christmas in July truly special is by creating a warm welcome for your guests. This delightful celebration allows us to bring the festive spirit into the winter season. While not everyone may want to go all-out with decorations or put up a Christmas tree in July, there are still quick and easy ways to create a warm and inviting atmosphere for your guests.

Keep reading to explore some simple yet effective ideas to give your guests a memorable and warm welcome. Let’s dive in and discover how to add a touch of holiday charm to your home without overwhelming your space.


A Warm Welcome in the Entryway

Set the tone for your Christmas in July celebration right at your front door with a beautiful wreath. Adorn it with a beautiful wreath featuring vibrant colours, or choose one with winter foliage and touches of silver or white to evoke a wintry feel. Hang it on your front door to welcome guests with a touch of festive charm.

Additionally, consider adding front entry ornaments, such as fun elves or animals, to create a whimsical entrance. These small details will instantly make your guests feel the holiday cheer as they arrive.

Christmas in July Tables

To continue the warm welcome, create a charming entry or console table display. Place a velvet or jute runner on the table and adorn it with a few winter decorations. Use LED candles on the dining table to create a warm and inviting ambiance. Pair with nostalgic Christmas scents to create a warming and memorable space for your guests.

Make your table cohesive with your front door wreath by running a matching garland along the centre. Add a touch of greenery with mini Christmas trees adorned with twinkling lights, and sprinkle a little fake snow to enhance the wintry atmosphere. Display a few Christmas-themed figurines, such as reindeer or birds to complete the festive scene. And create some height by hanging garlands off unexpected high places, like cupboards and lights. This thoughtful setup will make your guests feel immediately at home.


Treat Boards

Who doesn’t love indulging in delicious treats during the holiday season? Create a treat board filled with winter-themed goodies. Arrange an assortment of cookies, chocolates, and other sweet delights on a decorative platter or wooden board. Include seasonal favorites like gingerbread cookies, snowflake-shaped chocolates, or mini candy canes. You can even compliment your festive treat boards with holiday-themed drinks in our hot chocolate bar.

Nothing says Christmas in July like indulging in delicious treats. Your guests will appreciate the opportunity to savour these delightful treats and feel the holiday spirit.


Create a Warm Welcome with Touches of Décor

If you prefer not to put up a full-sized Christmas tree, you can still create a warm welcome with touches of holiday décor. These quick ideas are perfect for those who are short on time but still want to make your Christmas in July gathering memorable:

  • Set every console table or buffet with festive table runners or placemats.
  • Sprinkle fake snow or confetti on surfaces to add a touch of winter wonderland.
  • Create cosy seating areas in your home where your guests can relax and enjoy the festive ambiance. Arrange plush pillows and blankets in a comfortable corner, near a fireplace if you have one. Or decorate your living room with festive cushions featuring vibrant Christmas patterns or winter colours.
  • Hang stockings on the mantle or staircase banister, filled with thoughtful party favours for your guests that capture the essence of Christmas in July. Consider giving them small packages of holiday-scented candles, mini potted plants with winter blooms, or beautifully packaged homemade cookies.
  • String fairy lights around windows or door frames to create a warm and magical ambiance.
  • Add a touch of holiday charm by printing FREE Christmas posters and hanging on mirrors, wreaths, or anywhere you’d like!

Remember, the key is to create a warm and inviting atmosphere where your guests can immerse themselves in the holiday spirit, even during the cooler months. This cosy setup will invite your guests to unwind and spend quality time together. It’s the little things that leave a lasting impression.
