This holiday cocktail pairs well with cinnamon or nutmeg covered chocolate truffles, but really any chocolate treat will do. Serve these tasty treats in mixed metallics and coordinate with white and natural for holiday style that spans both the fall and winter seasons - it's all about simplifying. This year my goal is to make the holidays all about enjoying the little moments and this means fussy and over the top decor that requires a lot of work and a big investment, simply won't do. Target is generally my first and last stop for adding a few fresh new pieces to my collection each year. It's just so easy and they knock it out of the park each season with on trend and modern decor that is perfectly suited to incorporate into my existing seasonal decor - how convenient for this holiday shopping addicted mama.

I prefer not to have to start from scratch with my decorating and entertaining pieces each year, but I like to keep my holiday decor feeling exciting and new! A few new affordable pieces seem to do the trick and because they are affordable, they also happen to alleviate any potential guilt I might have for adding to an already insane amount of holiday decor. Easy seemingly homemade cocktails, a slower pace and gorgeous affordable statement pieces are a winning recipe for my holiday entertaining and general sanity this time of year!

What are your secrets for holiday success? Do you have any tricks up your sleeves to make things special without a lot of effort? Do tell...

Happy New Year my friends! I hope you all had a fabulous night and celebrated the new year like rockstars, on my behalf. I am fairly certain I fell asleep well before midnight, BUT I was awake for the turning of the clock for EST (east coast time)... Too bad I live in the PST, but in truth I am still on NBT (newborn baby time) and will probably stay that way for several more months! Eek! I can't believe it's 2013, but I am super duper excited to see what this coming year has to offer.
