warm holiday cheer

after talking to my friend kate yesterday..{about how cold I am and how hot she is} made me remember that not everyone celebrates the holidays in the delightful {insert sarcasm here} bone chilling-almost have frostbite-needs to get realllly close to the heater to thaw out weather like I do. but to be perfectly honest i tend to associate the holidays with the cold weather and last nights conversation made me wonder.. how do people in the southern hemisphere get in the holiday spirit? 
ding! then i remembered seeing a gorgeous “christmas in july” photo shoot on one of my favorite blogs {the city cradle} and thought if i didn't have to worry about how low the wind chill factor was or whether or not we’ll be getting snow…this would be my kind of christmas.  
no snow...no problem! white water balloons easily replace the icy spheres 
peppermint pops doubles as a bouquet...
a yummy dessert tables filled with what else...christmas cookies, donuts and peppermint shooters

i love the glass ornaments filled with baby's breath

  4. I can't imagine a COLD Christmas! This time of year (in Sydney) is all about swimming at the beach after work, bbq's for Christmas lunch, flip flops (thongs) and shorts. My mum even makes a 'plum pudding' out of ice cream. Yummo! This shoot kinda sums it up. Esp the water balloons, it is hot down here at the moment.

  5. This is perfect: the inspiration I was looking for before our Christmas lunch. It's summer here and a lot of what I see is a lot of what I wanted to do: PERFECT... Thanks for sharing this. I will be having fun this weekend planning/making it :)

  16. Oh this is so super cute and fun!! Love the ornaments filled with babys breath. I have to admit, I'm a bit jealous of the sunny holiday--I'd take sun OR snow over the rain here in Seattle :(
