How to Celebrate in Style This Christmas in July.

How to Celebrate in Style This Christmas in July.

Christmas in July; what an excellent excuse to get festive with your mates! We love the idea, and Château Gâteaux is ready to come to the party in the spirit of Christmas. Celebrate in style with our range of magic makers this winter!

The concept of 'Christmas comes but once a year' was thrown out when Christmas in July was first celebrated at a summer camp in North Carolina, America, in 1933. They dedicated two days (July 24 and 25) to the holiday and recreated winter with fake cotton snow, a decorated tree with pressies underneath, and Santa, of course. Then came a movie in 1940 titled 'Christmas in July', and the notion of this celebration caught on around the world. We are not complaining! Château Gâteaux is here for any celebratory moment big or small!

Have some fun this July and create Christmas without all the fuss. String fairy lights through the trees in your garden or around your lounge and dining room. Ask the kids to make some decorations for the table or sitting area and get creative with your gifts. Our beautiful, 100% biodegradable ‘razzberry’ boxes make the perfect present! Perhaps your friends would love a luxurious B-1 cake or our famous Mozart which has layers of soft meringue and hazelnut praline cream, topped with fine dark chocolate flavoured shavings. Think they will prefer something smaller? What about our mini Strawberry Cheesecakes, New York Baked Cheesecakes or our NEW Low Carb Brownie Cheesecakes?

Otherwise, suggest that adults share silly presents. Don't spend money on anything. Instead, everyone should find and wrap up a way-out piece of kitsch or weird item hidden away in a cupboard (no new wrapping paper, use newspaper or old wrapping paper). There will be much laughter while presents are revealed, and the wackiest pressie wins a small prize. We couldn’t think of a better prize than our decadent Mississippi Mud Pie from our Mini Collection!

Christmas without a wonderful meal is just not Christmas is it? So, because you don't have to stick to a traditional Christmas meal, bring out your favourite and most delicious recipes to share with your family and guests. Select a sensational dessert from our range of Celebration Creations – each one is fabulous from frozen, and you can easily decorate your choice in your July Christmas style. Our Choc Chip Cherry Dome would be perfection on a plate!

You can charm the children with Chocolate Volcanoes and a fizzing sparkler on top for a perfect July Christmas treat and bring back the Elf on the Shelf for a winter visit. Besides, who couldn't use a little help to keep the kids entertained right?

Remember, we have cake creations for all occasions! Explore our delectable cake collection at www.chateaugateaux.co.za or visit one of our gorgeous stores to take home slices of smiles!
