Good Morning! We are so humbed to have our work showcased on these blogs and magazines! We have been in business for 7 months and have so much to share with you since our debut. Design means so much to us here at MINT DESIGN. We work hard to keep our portfolio current, modern and always up to date on the latest wedding/event & design trends. Collaborating with various vendors to create our “Styled Shoots” are so important to us. Styled Shoots allow us to explore our creativity to the fullest trying out new trends and looks which we present to our readers and clients. Receiving feedback from our followers, letting us know what they liked or did not like about the design is very important to us as it is ultimately what the client wants and invisions for their event or wedding. Our portfolio is growing everyday so please hang tight while we showcase our work in a blog form until we have our website up and running! Enjoy!

We hope everyone had a safe and fun Fourth of July weekend! We wanted to end this patriotic weekend with a post featuring photos from our Nautical Americana Styled Bridal Shoot in Newport Beach! MINT DESIGN had the pleasure of working with the talented Taylor Cole of Taylor Cole Photography!
For this styled bridal shoot we wanted to incorporate the classic Americana vibes infused with beach elements to create a unique look. We pulled simple American items such as milk glass vases, blue and white plates, ruby red chalices, cracker jacks, cherries, sparklers, noise poppers and an American flag inspired cake. The classic mixture of red, white and blue was paired with beach tones such as mossy greens, metallic gold’s, dusty navy’s and hints of redwood. Our floor seating tied in a touch of boho along with the funky glass lanterns and shell chandelier. Nautical elements were pulled in using a wooden sailboat wheel, a vintage travel trunk, a typical Newport Beach Duffy boat, the 48-foot ‘Hokulani’ sailboat and the dock as the setting for our reception and sweets display. The florals were over flowing with white peonies, red dahlias, ruby and golden garden roses, mossy green eucalyptus and metallic gold air plants to add an unexpected twist! This intimate elopement inspiration is perfect for the couple that wants to have all the grand wedding details with out the large guest list. Prepare yourself to sail away into this dreamy love story!

What a fun shoot! We teamed up with Taylor Cole Photography for this mod maternity shoot! The shoot took place in Crystal Cove, directly in the middle of Newport and Laguna Beach. Our vision was pink, clean, crisp and just the right amount of beach meets modern. For the Event Design we incorporated a pink, white and gold tassel garland, a custom glitter bunting with the unborns’ first nickname! These were paired with florals from Mulberry and Moss, a custom to die for gold cake from Sweet N Saucy Shop, rentals from YEAH! Rentals, cake topper by Little Cat Design Co, Macarons from De Coeur Bakeshop and confetti from The Confetti Bar! This babe is sure to be born into a fun, loving and pink family! Enjoy! MINT DESIGN

Summer is here! Time to sit back relax and enjoy the weather! We came up with this fun, festive and colorful mimosa bar that is achievable in minutes. We used the basics; bar cart, diy tassel garland, flowers from the garden, fresh fruit, bubbly and Italian soda! That’s right, Italian soda adds extra fizz and is a spin on the traditional mimosa. Don’t forget to add glitter whenever possible ;) We used an old Goodwill frame and snazzed it up in minutes. Enjoy everyone! Photography Ashley dePencier Photography
Our beautiful bride Allie and her handsome groom Jan traveled to Gangnam, Seoul Korea last year for their engagement photos. In Korea it is custom to dress up in numerous bridal gowns for your engagement photos while being pampered by numerous stylists during the 12 hour photography session. Allie was able to pick out two white gowns and one red and one purple gown. She had two assistants that helped scrictly with her gown placement and another assistant that added embellishments to her hair and accesories to her gown. The session started at 4:30 AM with her hair and makeup then they went to a studio to make the magic happen. How chic are our bride and groom? We can’t wait for their September wedding! Enjoy these spectacular photos!
This vintage tea party shoot was so much fun to design! We teamed up with Laura from Laura Danielle Photography and Mai from De Coeur Bakeshop to create this nostalgic look. We came up with a new, modern twist on the typical tea party and added elements such as gold pipe cleaner crowns, gold leafed florals, a ballerina on point, over sized flowers, royal crown chairs, bright macarons and a to die for gold flecked vanilla buttercream cake. Sit back, relax and take a whirl down the rabbit hole!

Check out our Vintage Tea Party inspiration shoot up today on 100 Layer Cake! We have been waiting for this very special day for a while now and are so happy it is finally here!!
Easter is such a fun time of year! You get to surround yourself with candies, goodies and colored eggs! For this styled shoot we incorporated many Easter traditions but made them fun and unique! We used old baskets and spray painted them to add more color and contrast. Anything glittered always makes an appearance at a MINT DESIGN styled shoot, so we decided on glittered eggs and little mini egg favors with glitter edges. We hung paper eggs from the trees along with yellow tissue paper tassels! Our barn table was the perfect canvas for the colorful elements of this table! Our little golden bunny, Pepe’ even stole the show for a few detail shots! MINT candies danced on the table to give it a candid party feel. We were able to use our fabulous Oh Joy tumblers which we paired with fancy champagne flutes to mix modern and vintage. Colorful candle holders and vases were filled with lavendar wax flowers and an easter favorite, tullips! Sorry guys, no cheesy sugar peeps here! Enjoy these rich photos and prepare yourself for a wonderful Easter weekend!

Its been one year since we planned and designed this fella’s 60th Birthday bash in Northern California. Leif, happens to be the father of our founder. And now one year later, he is an extremely proud father! For this Birthday party we incorporated Leif’s love for golf with custom cookies made by Imperial Sweets. Callaway golf balls, golf balls, clubs and T’s were drawn on each cookie. A dessert bar with cupcakes, cookies, popcorn, kisses, M & M’s and smores were a huge hit with the 50 guests. We decorated the outdoor tent with Italian string lights, balloons, and gold star cutouts. The high boys were decorated with 3 small candles, kraft paper and burlap tie to sinch the linen.
