Hello Everyone. Looking for as many ideas for a Christmas in July Celebration, at one of my Senior Dining Centers. I have live music coming, but was looking for ideas on how to set up the tables, decorate a tree? Etc. Has anyone ever done a Christmas in July celebration? All ideas welcomed. Thank You !!

Thank you for all the great ideas. I have most of it already planned I have been searching. Our events are only one day. So we have to make it all work in one day. Thanks for all the ideas, love this group..

Under a dressing gown, women of that era typically wore nightgowns. Like dressing gowns, nightgowns were fashion items and status symbols. At first, they were all long—shorter styles didn’t emerge until much later

Hi Barn,
I hope the photo i send will help you to get some idea. That table setting was made during easter, however you can place christmas paper lanter or christmas tinsel or christmas stuff to help look like a christmas.
You can also, set the table for 4 persons or make it combine table. Put some utensil if necessary. However it's depend how you deliver it. If you have a music or concert back ground much better to make them really enjoyable.
