I’m dreaming of a mint green Christmas

This year, my favourite colour is a mix between Tiffany Blue and Mint Green (hence the website skin, appropriate no?) It’s become a very popular colour since last year, and it’s popped up many times on Pinterest.

Home decor and wedding ideas are particularly popular among Pinteresters (is that what they’re called?) although you can find anything from sweets to nail polish in that shade.

Pick your favourite shade! They’re all awesome.

This year, I’m dreaming of a white mint green Christmas.

It was strongly inspired by this Tiffany Blue Christmas tree standing in Chadstone Shopping Centre, Malvern East, Melbourne.

Classic tiffany boxes wrapped in white ribbon, with silver bauble and decor. Hello Christmas!

The entire shopping centre is full of decorations of this colour, like this macaron cart. If you love this colour, pay a visit. If you hate this colour… you might want to avoid Chadstone…

Not only that, even the City of Melbourne’s boasting shades of tiffany blue / mint green Christmas spirit:

The Melbourne Town Hall on Collins Street has a big red bow in the daytime, but flashes all sorts of colours at night. And the timer on the right indicates when the next show will begin.

What show? You have to go see it for yourself! They’ve got a really long Christmas light projection.

It’s so good that people clap at the end. Every. single. time.

Well you can have your very own mint green Christmas at home! Here’s what I like, all repinned from Pinterest.

Aqua and white Christmas! Fancy having a white christmas tree?

More Christmas baubles. Spray-paint some silver glitter, or gold. They still look good either way.

Christmas baubles in a ceramic tin would be a nice decor on a table or as a centrepiece. Or if you’re lazy to get a Christmas tree (what would you do with a tree in the next 11 months?)

Black and white are super classic matching colours.

Mint green dresses! This long shimmery maxi dress makes her look like a mermaid actually.

Shorter cocktail party dress, but just as shiny.

A small mint green accent is cool. Mint green looks really nice with light pink or peach as well. I suppose the key is to keep the colours light.

The problem with Australia in December isn’t in Winter but in hot Summer. Which isn’t a problem for me because I love the summer and hate the winter. At least we can soak in the sun’s rays. What better to do that than in a mint green bathing suit?

Complete the look with sandals, and silver anchors.

And a kaftan to throw over. I can’t believe they have everything in mint green.

Mint green nails! Many nail brands now carry this colour, from OPI to China Glaze to The Face Shop to Essie to ORLY. Yes, the brand is really called ORLY. Like, Oh really? HAHA.

And then if you’re so hardcore, there’s a MINT GREEN CHANEL 2.55 BAG. Like what? Look at that shiny quilted bag with gunmetal hardware.

And check out these super awesome cupcakes.

Cupcakes, macarons, biscuits, top them off with silver sprinkles.

Mint green and christmas red paper straws if you’re feeling extra fancy.

If you’re feeling extra extra fancy, you can get invitation cards. Oh, who am I kidding. Everyone just does Facebook events.

And heart-shaped mint green decorations to string around the house! Party optional.

That nook. I just want to curl up in it with a book, a laptop and a giant blanket.

A bedroom complete with chandelier. Wonder how long it took to match everything?

Ruffles! A little too feminine, but it looks so comfortable too.

And then if you prefer a bit more bling, this is an option instead. I can’t believe even the side tables match.

After the Christmas blues, there’s always a mint green diary for next year. Typo and Kikki.K are stocking up on mint green diaries and calendars if you’re looking to get one. Just check a bookstore / stationery store near you. 2015, how did you reach us so quickly?
