I feel like I can’t have a thought these days that doesn’t somehow tie into the holiday season one way or another. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s fun actually, but all this preparation is enough to make you go a bit nuts some days, right? There’s just so much prep work involved, gifts to buy, decorating to do and it can sometimes somehow get placed in the “work” category instead of the “fun” one. This year, I started planning a little bit early so that I was able to take a little bit of the burden off myself and was even able to do a little home decor update for the season with our friends from Minted.

We started, as always with our Holiday Cards that we always get from Minted. They are widely know for their Ornament Holiday Cards which we love and actually sent out last year (you can check them out there!) and their gorgeous foil pressed cards, too (please keep scrolling for a code to save you some money when you make your purchase down below!) This year, we went with something more on the simple side because the message caught my eye and really stood out to me as a message I want to spread this year: just focus on the simple things. (And we also did Blake’s birth announcements with them, if you need some ideas check out my post here!)

I can’t even begin to describe how many out takes we had when I took these, what I thought would be, simple pictures in our living room. But nonetheless, Blake didn’t want to sit still, so this was the best we got! (And if you want to snag their jimmies, they are ON SALE FOR ONLY $6.99!! Shop them here!!) 

I also typically keep things simple when it comes to holiday decor, because we really only have a small space to decorate to begin with, but I made a little update this year that I’m pretty excited about. I took down our gallery wall and replaced it with a new shelf and some new Foil-Pressed Art  that really bring some modern decorations into the mix and I’m loving it how it all blended so well with our silver initial emblems.

I’m pretty obsessed and as always, super excited to mix and match art work and build our collection with each passing year. And I’ll be upfront with you about cost: Minted definitely has a lot of great options that work within any budget, so don’t be afraid to check out all the beautiful decor and artists because it’s worth it – and they make great gifts, too!
