Last Christmas, my father had just died and rather than have my mother stay in the house where they lived, I invited everyone to my house. And I mean everyone. My mother, my brother, my brother-in-law, my godmother, AND my mother-in-law.  We were FULL.  It was the first time in a LONG time that I had hosted a holiday at my house and had to entertain and feed such a large group of people.  And I had nothing. I’ve never had to since the holiday meal/celebration has always been somewhere else! I mean, I had pots and pans, but serving dishes? Table settings? China? Placemats? Holiday Decor?

Nothing, nothing at all.

But we got through.This year, instead of my house, we are all going to my brother’s house for Christmas. But before

This year, instead of my house, we are all going to my brother’s house for Christmas. But before

This year, instead of my house, we are all going to my brother’s house for Christmas. But before we leave, I wanted to host a couple of small gatherings of friends and family. Just 3-4 people at a time to say happy holidays and thank you for being there for me. But again, I had nothing.

But again, I had nothing.

I knew I wanted something classic, something simple.

Enter Minted.

My Christmas holiday decor, is always some variation of red and gold. And I was able to get the perfect compliments for my china to help me stick to the idea of a simple holiday decor.

I needed placemats.

These gorgeous Winter leaves and Berries Placemats were key to my holiday decor this year.They are beautiful and made from luxurious, natural-fiber textiles and are custom made for you in the United States. I am a person who, when she bothers to decorate, tends to be minimal. These placemats help bring a beautiful pop of color to my decor.

Since my main theme was gold this year ( all the decorations on my tree have a gold theme) I added these gorgeous Vintage Metallic Mini Glass Ornaments. Not only did I add some to my tree, but I used them as table decoration.

Even my husband complimented on how cute it was. These miniature blown glass ornaments in mixed metallic hues are the perfect compliment for my simple holiday decor this year.

I needed a center piece. Usually, I am just a fresh flowers as a centerpiece girl, but this year, I decided to be a little more creative. The Trophy Apothecary Jar was the perfect compliment to my holiday table.

I was able to add my Mini Glass Ornaments and few candy canes to make it fun, and I had the perfect Christmas centerpiece.

    My daughter got married in May and the invites came from Minted. When my son got married this past November, Minted was the place to go and they always deliver. I keep forgetting that they have more than invitations. Thanks for the reminder.

    I love Minted for everything from their cards to the personalized photo gifts. I didn’t know they also had ornaments!

    I’m going to have to check Minted out. Looks like they have a lot of cute things! I’m in the same boat as you. I have some serving dishes, but as I just moved to a smaller place, I got rid of a lot of my things. When I was married, I had everything you could think of! After my divorce, moving to smaller apts, I had to downsize. Just never re-established what I had!

    Your tablescape is gorgeous just like I knew it would be. Love those napkins. Ornaments in a glass jar! That’s perfect… Next year I’ll add that to my decor.

    I just love apothecary jars. I have a few set out on my piano full of things. You can decorate them in so many ways for the holidays.

    These are great ways for having simple decor with Minted. I love the placemats with the white plain plates which really make the placemats pop. The center piece is gorgeous and looks amazing. Thanks for sharing the decor.
