There are certain colors that just make things feel fresh and pretty, and mint might just be at the top of that list of colors. It’ even the color of choice for my logo! The cool pastel reminds people of soft natural elements, and has a calming effect. But it is certainly not a new wedding color, so I set out to style a Neo Mint Wedding that modernized mint decor and brought it to a whole new level. Read on to see how I did it!
First, I set my table. I used flowy mint green fabric as a table runner, with white ceramic vases filled with dried florals and mint palm leaves as centerpieces. To modernize my place settings, I used plates, cups, bowls, and napkins with clean geometric lines and shapes in a mixed clear, mint, crisp white, and glam gold color palette. I then placed gold glitter place cards and after dinner mint favor boxes at each place. Get the details for how to create your own Neo Mint Favors HERE.
TIP: Additional mint boxes can be used on the place settings to add another touch of mint color, and to hold salt and pepper or other spices/condiments in a more attractive way than simply placed on a table.
Mint to Be Cake Area
Next, I set up a bar cart for my cake area. I used large mint-painted monstera leaves as a placemat under a gorgeous mint ombre cake. Then, because you know I can’t resist a good pun, I painted an acrylic sign to place next to the cake that stated “Mint to Be” – the perfect minty phrase for a wedding. Next to the bar cart, I set out large white vases filled with monstera and palm leaf arrangements. Above the cart, I hung a modern Neo Mint and Geometric Wreath. Find out how to make it HERE.
TIP: Place the leaf arrangement vases on either side of the cake table on top of white and gold gift boxes for extra height.
One of the elements that ties the wedding together and also serves to break up all of the mint (while still complementing it) are the florals. In addition to the vases on the sides of the cake table and on the dinner table, I used soft cream and blush florals on the wedding cake, and in these simple and elegant Neo Mint Boutonnieres. Learn how to make them HERE.
TIP: Keep the boutonnieres together and avoid losing sharp pins by placing them in a mint-painted tray. The tray is practical, but also serves as themed decor!
