Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love baking up yummy treats like peppermint patties and prepping for the holidays! Our family’s Christmas tree is decorated, and the feeling around our house is fun and festive.
Because I love beautiful things and enjoy saving time, I shop for Christmas cards and holiday decor online. Minted is the store I count on most. It’s where my friends and I find super unique products that are incredibly gorgeous. I can’t wait to show you all the fabulous things I just ordered. But first I’d like to share my special recipe for scrumptious peppermint patties. What you’ll love most is how delightfully easy they are to make. Once you taste these scrumptious little mints they’re destined to become a family favorite in your household too!
One of my secret ingredients for making peppermint patties is using pure Mexican vanilla. Its taste is distinctly different from the conventional brands of vanilla available here in the states. Because I travel back and forth between California and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico I’m able to bring back bottles of vanilla in my suitcase. But happily you can now order Mexican vanilla online from Amazon.com.
I’d like to thank Minted for sponsoring this delicious recipe for homemade peppermint patties. I am wildly in love with the Minted brand so I was happy to receive a few of their products in exchange for promotion. I may receive a small commission for purchases made through affiliate links on my blog. Thank you so much for supporting the brands that support me. It allows me to continue to provide beautiful content for your enjoyment!
I am so excited about the Minted Christmas cards I ordered online! This year I decided to change things up a bit. Instead of cards with envelopes I chose a fabulous set of postcards. With Minted you have the option of customizing your holiday cards and postage stamps with photos and your own wording. Let me tell you, all of Minted’s cards are downright glamorous!
The Christmas card design above is one of my favorites. I ordered 45 of these holiday postcards and included a personalized message on the back. The photo above showcases two of my beautiful Minted Christmas cards with my own special holiday greeting. There’s also the option of free address printing, so when your order arrives your cards are ready to go. How wonderful is that? Now you too will have more time this holiday season to whip up a batch of yummy peppermint patties!
And what do you think of this beautiful strand of holly felt garland? I bet it will look lovely strung across your fireplace mantle or artfully placed on your Christmas tree.
It’s also perfect for creating a memorable tablescape for holiday parties and family gatherings.
I really cherish the time I spend with family and friends. During the holidays I’m on the lookout for great ways to beautify my home quickly and easily. Luckily Minted provides perfect solutions that fit my lifestyle. With gorgeous Minted cake plates, 3-D Christmas trees and holly felt garland I was able to set up this holiday dessert table in a snap! After baking up a batch of Homemade Oreos for Santa, Marshmallow Dippers for hot chocolate, and delicious Homemade Peppermint Patties, this fabulous look came together quickly. The lovely Pine Forest table runner below will pair up great with my paper trees. It will soon be a new addition to my tablescape!
