What is Julep? Only the new blog which just launched last week from Minted that is full of great ideas to decorate your home for the holidays and every day in between. Minted offers unique cards, art work and new party suites that are designed by real designers, read: anyone who wants to give it a go and puts their heart into it. By offering design contests that everyone in the community can vote on and decide who will have their designs sold and printed, Minted is doing something new and amazing and you wouldn't expect anything less with their new blog. Julep features ideas and articles from their amazing community and it shows. One of the reasons I am so excited? I was invited to contribute a few holiday DIYs! The first of three, went live last week and is my modern take on Thanksgiving placecards.

My Modern Thanksgiving Placecards are much more interesting than a simple card with a turkey printed on it.  No names involved, but you can certainly tie a nametag to the top of each with ribbon if you love assigning seats. Inside each bottle is a little note of gratitude, something you are thankful for.

I'm super excited for this blog because A. I love Minted and B. it has some of my favorite bloggers around...take a peek and find out what rockstars they've gathered.
