It is holiday card season! I love sending out a beautiful holiday card just as much as I love receiving them from all of our family and friends. Sending out a yearly holiday card is the only mail I still send each year, it forces me to update our address book and I love getting the whole family dressed up for our photo. We alway try to snap that perfect photo, the day after Thanksgiving, so we have more than enough time to get our Minted holiday cards out before the rush of the season.

When dressing for our family photo we try to all dress in the same color family, but I make sure we are not matching too much. I found the cutest little girls dress from RUUM at their holiday preview a few months back, and decided to plan our outfits around that dress. The RUUM metallic lace dress is easy to pull on, and is made out of a stretch lace, it features a trendy ombre foil technique. For H I found a similar ombre sweater from RUUM, the sweater is a lightweight cotton and can be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

They looked so festive together hanging out at ABC Carpet and Home, One of my favorite NYC stores, it is especially magical during the holiday season. We received tons of compliments and their coordinating holiday outfits.

ABC Home holidayLuckily my parents were in town, so they were able to take our family photo, on a surprisingly sunny and warm NYC morning in late November. Plus after having them take over 100 photos, I was happy enough with one that can be used on our Minted holiday card.

Now I need your help in picking out the best holiday card design, to send out to all of our family and friends! Minted makes it so easy to design that perfect holiday card, that you will spend the most time going through over 600 card choices. The see your photo in many cards at once option was a timesaver, and I could instantly see which cards did not work with our family photo. Plus they have a “buy now, personalize later” option and you can lock in the best rate, and finish when you are ready. The Minted Envelope is also a fun new custom design feature where your cards can match the envelopes, and recipient addressing all for FREE (perfect for this busy mama).
