Celebrate holiday preparations this season by incorporating plaids, checks, and MacKenzie-Childs‘ festive hot chocolate mugs into your Christmas home decor. 

It’s a magical time of the year, and MacKenzie-Childs is here to make it your most colorful holiday yet. Traditional reds and greens welcome your guests with beautiful decor this season.

I want to welcome you on our porch today for a gathering of Christmas preparations and hot chocolate. We’ll pick some fresh greenery, dig out the vintage ski lodge decorations, and get cozy with blankets, sheepskins, and the cutest little hot chocolate mugs.

Have a seat, grab a “Courtly Check” hot chocolate mug, and let me pour you a cup of hot chocolate topped with whipped cream, nutmeg, a cinnamon stick, and a gingerbread cookie to help warm you up.

This set of two serving trays, decorated with decaled red tartan and MacKenzie-Childs’ distinctive logo plate, is the perfect traditional touch for the holidays.

What do you think, Ella? “The hot chocolate mugs are my favorite and certainly holiday magic…”  Deliscious!

I rounded up 24 hot chocolate mugs recipes for you to enjoy during your own Christmas preparations with plaids, tartans, and checks this holiday and winter season.

Decorate your tables this holiday season with MacKenzie-Childs‘ Tartastic Table Runner, combining plaids, tartans, and checks all in one fabulous holiday piece.
