This post is brought to you by Minted, but nothing that I wouldn’t wholeheartedly recommend anyway! Hey guys! I’m so incredibly excited for today. I teamed up with Minted to bring you this fun Mint & Gold Modern Christmas Tablescape. This unique spin on Christmas is perfect for a fancy dinner at home. Minted has some super fun Christmas decor items like these watercolor and gold foil dipped 3D paper tree centerpieces. When I saw them online, I instantly knew I had to have them for my tablescape. The rest of this modern Christmas table evolved around them as inspiration.

I have a secret for you. I love modern decor. The angles, geometric shapes, clean and crisp lines. I also love mint and gold color scheme. Like it’s my favorite color combination ever. One time I made my husband paint an old laminate wood desk mint green. It was a total fail. Turns out painting old laminate wood is not as easy as it looks and sealing it was even harder. It looked horrible, haha. But I lived with it for a year or so. My home, however, is rustic and farmhouse, which I love too (and still definitely a work in progress). Hence, my farmhouse table (a thrift store find – score!) and my DIY Farmhouse Benches (tutorial coming soon!). Tablescapes are a great way bring in a style that you love but don’t want to commit to permanently. Does this mean I have commitment issues?

I like to keep things thrifty over here. That “table runner”… it’s a scarf!! When putting together your holiday tables, be sure to take a walk around your home (and your closet apparently) to see what items you can pull in.

I had a hard time choosing from all of the amazing choices for place cards at Minted. I settled on the Sandstone place cards in the Celedon color. These are actually technically for a wedding, but I thought they fit in perfect for my mint & gold modern Christmas tablescape.

Those wooden chargers (& matching coasters) totally caught my eye in the Target Dollar Spot and thought they would a great way to blend my typical rustic vibe with the modern look that I was aiming for. I think I will definitely have to go grab some more before the season is over because I came across this brilliant idea recently which is totally on my (never-ending) craft to-do list now.
