    I just love setting up a pretty bar cart display for each holiday and Valentine’s Day is no exception… especially today’s cart because it is meant for a fabulous night with your girlfriends… ie. a Galentine’s Day Celebration! In case you missed last year’s Valentine’s Day bar cart, there is tons of inspiration there as well {see it here}. It was one of my favorites… sugar coated rims, stunning blooms, but for this year’s girls night I decided to keep the drinks much more simple {because really who needs much more than rosé?!}, but up the sweets… because what girl isn’t planning to have copiuos amounts of sugar that night?! So basically this cart is simple, but nonetheless a crowd pleaser! I hope you enjoy the ideas!

    On my bar cart I served Whispering Angel rosé wine, which is my go-to rosé for most parties, and for Valentine’s especially because it matches perfectly. For glassware I chose my Juliska Amalia wine glasses, a registry pick of mine that I always take out for girly occasions… I just love the sweet detailing!

    On the bottom level I created a display of treats that come dessert time I will actually place on the top level, making it easier to enjoy. I found these awesome apothecary jars {similar here} and filled them with colorful candies from Party City. {I recommend filling the biggest jars with large candy like gum balls and smaller ones with white and pink m&ms.} Then I used my “cheers” flutes to hold pink lollipops, which I weighed down with little pink gems… they are super cute for any bar cart or to sprinkle around your table!!

    This year I created my own arrangements; I filled big vases with bright white roses and pink tulips and a smaller vase with bright pink roses. I always like flowers on both levels of my cart so you see them from any angle. I also love the look of a tall arrangement alongside a smaller one, like I did on the top level!

    So there you have it. The perfect way to welcome Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day guests!! Shop the full look below! {By the way, this bar cart was a steal at Target from a year and a half ago .. still in stock, and great quality!!}

  2. Holiday Bar Cart

    After sharing my Holiday Home Tour I had to share a closer look at my gorgeous Holiday Bar Cart display! A bar cart is such an easy way to transform a party from average to festive. Welcome guests with a bar cart right at your entrance filled with a display of welcome drinks, or pull up your bar cart alongside your couch for an added side table display of nutcrackers and mini pine trees. By placing this one in my family room, I had a fab new space to display an array of gold and glittery Holiday pieces. You probably remember these…

  3. Memorial Day Bar Cart

    Continuing with my Memorial Day weekend prep, I wanted to share a fun bar cart display that I prepared for my girlfriends last week that would make for the perfect Memorial Day Bar Cart!! Nothing todo with the whole “Memorial Day” theme but rather the “let’s hang at the pool and drink delicious cocktails” theme {in case you were confused!}. So bright and fun for guests, and seriously so simple to assemble, this bar cart is a “do” even if you are headed out of town and need to assemble your spread on a side table! All you need is a drink…

  4. Host Mother’s Day Brunch

    For this year’s Mother’s Day celebration, I partnered with Sterling Vineyards Wines to host a brunch party that was perfectly elegant, feminine, and packed with endless delicious treats. I must say I am so in love with the end result I can hardly contain my excitement! I decided to create this dreamy setup right on my patio because I had just hung my new Darlana Light Fuxture {via Circa Lighting} and the table has a beautiful view overlooking the pool! To create my tablescape I chose a tablecloth from Mode Living and a speckled gold table runner from Minted as my base, then I layered…

  5. Rosé Bar Cart

    Now that I am living in Miami I find it completely acceptable to enjoy rosé year round… don’t you agree? So for today’s post I wanted to share a cute rosé drink station I created for my first group of visitors to come through our new home! So girly and pretty, I am definitely planning to re-use the concept at an upcoming bridal shower I am planning for a client! To create the look I actually needed two carts. For the taller cart I started by decorating the front with branches of eucalyptus {which both smell good and look so romantic}. Behind, I placed…
