1. 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 World Market Nutcrackers from last year’s Holiday Fireplace Mantel. Then alongside my nutcrackers I have a few bottles of Splash Mixers – a delish party cocktail mixer that’s all natural and only 20 calories {I have to say the bottle is so chic!}. On my top shelf I have Chandon’s Limited Edition Holiday 2016 Brut Classic created by fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff, which I plan to serve in my favorite stemless champagne flutes that say “cheers” in an array of languages {from Z Gallerie}. The crisp-white Festival linen cocktail napkins by Sferra are my go-to “dressy napkins” for the Holiday season {and make for a great hostess gift!!}. And lastly, the “Merry Christmas” drink mixers were a last minute find in the Target dollar section {see other fun party props here!}.

    Cheers to the Holidays!

  2. Memorial Day Bar Cart

    Gold Bar Cart Display for Spring with summer drink dispenser and decorative objects on FashionableHostess.com

    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…

  3. Host Mother’s Day Brunch

    Mothers Day Tablescape ideas by Fashionable Hostess

    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…

  4. Rosé Bar Cart

    Rose Bar Cart Display by Fashionable Hostess

    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…

  5. Grapefruit & Strawberry Martinis for Valentine’s Day

    Valentine's Day Bar Cart Inspiration with specialty cocktails by Fashionable Hostess

    I love decorating for Valentine’s Day {obviously, I mean it’s been going on for weeks on the blog} but as much as I like all the hearts and frills I also love something a bit more sophisticated and elegant. So today I wanted to share a simple bar cart display for Valentine’s that includes the most delicious Valentine’s {or Galentine’s Day} martini recipe. Of course the key to making it special is choosing delicate martini glasses {these are the Lenox Tuscany Classic}, adding pretty garnish, and displaying alongside lush flowers! Read on for this martini recipe that I found on AHealthyLifeforMe.com. Love Potion #9 Cocktail {ie….
