Lots of people consider Christmas in July as the perfect excuse to throw parties and have fun. If that’s the case, where do we sign up? People who celebrate this non-holiday do so in traditional Christmas party style—complete with the winter trappings. But if you find heavy sweaters, an open fire, and calorific eggnog way too warm for July, then a summer-friendly Caribbean cruise theme is what you need.

All Aboard

Get your guests on board with the cruise ship theme by sending out paper or email invitations fashioned as “boarding passes.” Choose from dozens of free online templates or create your own with cruise-related images, like anchors, palm trees, or ocean liners.

Casual dining attire on cruise ships can be a simple polo shirt and slacks for men, and a breezy top and skirt for women. For a brighter affair, ask guests to come in colorful tropical shirts, linen pants, and comfortable sundresses. As the host, you get the privilege of wearing a captain’s hat.

Christmas – the holiday so nice, it has to be celebrated twice. Christmas in July is perfect for those who adore the Yuletide season, and can’t wait to experience the cheerful sights and festive spirit all over again. One of the best parts of this amusing summer event is setting up a Christmas in July tree and decorating it in a suitably tongue-in-cheek manner.

It’s perfectly okay to display a traditional green tree or a colorful, contemporary one for this celebration. But if you really want to make an impression, there’s nothing like Treetopia’s Catalina Breeze Palm Trees to show that you own the occasion!
