Mid Century style Christmas involves a vintage vibe that also has a Danish Modern simplicity to it. It's about woods like teak and birch, sleek metal and glass contemporary design, and some of the cheesy colorful accents that haunted the mid century time period.
Consider a colored Christmas tree like pink or blue. Hang Hawaiian ornanments with vibrant color. Go for a totally retro feel and scour the markets for 1950s ornaments, the standard stuff of most baby boomers' childhoods. The fake Christmas tree wave began in the 1950s and the trees were off the charts Jetson's vibe aluminum and tinsel, bright colors, and super fake looking.

As minimalism is a trademark of Mid Century and also the vintage vibe of the past, I'd suggest a simple bold statement like a large stellar pointed star.
As far as your color palette, you will want to stick with the colors of mid century instead of the traditional. Try pistachio green, persimmon orange, or turquoise.
The key to your Mid Century Christmas home is one bold tree statement as obnoxious a color and fake aluminum as possible and keep the rest very simple and clutter-free. Enjoy glass and metal arrangements.
