Christmas in July at QVC has become an annual tradition filled with whimsical and beautiful holiday decor.
Without a doubt, it was one of my favorite seasons of the year during my time as a program host at QVC.
I especially loved putting together and designing products for my You’re Home With Jill shows.
I look back at pictures from those shows with pride. We created some really beautiful pieces that I hope people continue to enjoy.
With so many years of Christmas in July at QVC under my belt, I thought I’d put together a little walk down Candy Cane Lane with some of my favorite pieces.
I’ve also put together a few favorites from products featured this year…think of it as a virtual home show, Just Jill style!
So let’s get your Ho-ho-home ready for the holidays!

Celebrating Christmas In July
Christmas in July at QVC really took on special meaning for me when I was able to work with merchandising teams and vendors to create products just for my shows.
I loved being able to create cohesive collections that had some kind of a theme, like the woodland couture look below.
It was always so much fun to help style the set to bring the entire look to life!
I also loved the challenge of elevating and updating more traditional Christmas looks.
Not easy! But working with such luscious colors as red, gold and green always resulted in something stunning!
Christmas With A Personal Touch
Of course, my point of view for a lot of the holiday decor I helped to create was based on favorites from my childhood and Christmas with my children.
I started collecting Santa designs years ago, so it was an honor (and SO much fun) to work with Byers Choice to create unique Santa and Mrs. Claus figurines.
I was even able to incorporate some of my children’s letters to Santa into a couple of the Santa designs.
And while I collaborated on a lot of different Christmas tree designs, I think my favorite has to be… the Trevor tree! My Mom still uses hers every Christmas!
I’m not sure how old Trevor is in this picture, but since he’s not even as tall as the 5-foot tree, I’d say he’s probably 8 or 9 years old.
He’d tower over that little tree now!
More Christmas In July Memories
I have hundreds and hundreds of pictures of the various Christmas collections I’ve worked on. And I own quite a lot of the items I helped to create.
Here’s how I use the elegant magnolia collection on one of our Christmas trees.
Yes, I said 1 of our trees… I’ve been known to have at least 3 trees up in the house… but it’s been as many as 7!!
The magnolia collection is probably my favorite.
It was in the first assortment of products that really had my handprint on it and I continue to use these pieces in my holiday decorating year after year.
Exciting Designs For Christmas In July 2022
It’s always fun to look back and remember how much joy it gave me to create Christmas collections for you!
And guess what? In my role with the Scott Brothers, I’m working alongside Jonathan and Drew designing pieces for their holiday collections!

We have a Scott Living Holiday show for you this weekend for the kick-off of Christmas in July. Fun plaids, some lodge-inspired looks, and a fantastic tree! The guys LOVE Christmas, so it should be tons of fun.
Here is a sneak peek at a couple of the items from QVC’s Christmas in July
If you’re looking to add a little glow to your mantle, set up this adorable illuminated Christmas village.
The petite houses add a whimsical touch to your decor, and the glow from the windows offers a little warmth to your room!
Scott Living also has quite a few pieces in their ornament collection.
There are basic round ornaments that wor great as space fillers and allow for more decoration without your tree feeling too busy.
There are also ornaments with more detail like these ones with plaid sparkles!
Here’s another unique one. The golden pinecone is decorated in glitter which takes your tree’s elegance to a whole new level.
Even if your tree is full, you can use ornaments around your home!
I like placing ornaments in a bowl in the middle of my dining room table. They also look great on my mantle!
See? A few ornaments scattered about can really bring some holiday cheer to your home!
In the image above, you’ll see one of my FAVORITE hurricanes for the holiday season. The gold antlers make any space look more refined. And since it doesn’t scream “Christmas,” you can use it year-round!
Trying to add a Christmas touch to your kitchen table? These holiday plates are a great way to do just that!
And if navy isn’t in your typical decor, there’s a beautiful Scott Living plate in white and gold as well.
Adding fairy lights to your decorations can really up the dimension of your space.
During the holidays, I use them in hurricanes and on my mantle. But as you can see in the photo above, they can also be incorporated into spring decor and throughout your home no matter the time of the year.
And if you LOVE the HygroCotton/Tencel sheets from Scott Living, there’s a holiday set you might like!
As you can see, these holiday sheets come in multiple patterns including stripes, plaids and other holiday motifs.
Merry Christmas In July!
I hope you enjoyed this little trip down memory lane with me, looking back at the Christmas in July of the past and taking a look at Christmas in July present!
But remember, it is STILL summer… so while it’s always fun to think about the holidays, let’s not forget to enjoy the sun, beach, and all that comes with this season too!
From my home to yours,
