Christmas in July 2013 - Day One - Welcome!

Good morning and welcome to Christmas in July, the annual celebration of all things Christmas when the temperatures are steaming outside and you'd love to see some cooling snowflakes!  It's a time to try new crafts, new recipes, and new decorating ideas, a time when things are a little less hustle and bustle than they are in December.  Slip that Christmas CD into the player, pick out a Christmas movie or two, and find a good Christmas book to enjoy with your elevenses or afternoon tea.  It's time to get lost in a Winter Wonderland.

This week's theme is I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas and today's activity is to surf Pinterest in search of White Christmas ideas.  I love beautiful table settings and I can't think of one that is more in line with the White Christmas theme than this one.

Isn't this beautiful?  I'll have to keep my eye out for some white china with the delicate silver accents that you see here.  Combined with the little silver accents in the napkin rings and on the candles, with silver ornaments scattered along with table runner, it really is lovely.  Be sure to scroll down on Color Outside the Lines Love...White Christmas Decor for more ideas.
