Good morning! Its been a while since I have had a soiree and for some reason I was thinking of hosting a Christmas in July party. There have been a couple of prior posts on the subject, but they are a few years old now and would love some fresh ideas. I would say at most looking at 30 people for an outdoor party (courtyard area of my house) in western NC mountains. Praying for no rain - would be quite hard to fit that many folks inside. Have covered front porch and gas grill. Here is what I am looking for: Christmas theme food easily made a head of time and able to be kept outside for a few hours in July; would like to have a seafood based entree portion of the menu with caveat of champagne-dreams-beer-budget. Decoration/budget/music ideas in addition to the food are definitely welcome. I'm all Pinterest in my head, just need help executing the ideas...

Thank you so much! Tehama (ps, my husband is from Italy, so if you have any Italian ideas to throw in, I'll delegate those to my wonderful cook of a husband).
