Hello Friends !
I am so excited to be here with you today ! I sort of kind of took last week off just because I just needed to take some time to myself to rest ! I’m still a little tired, but Christmas break will be here before we know it and I can really be seated !
If you follow me on Instagram, you will be able to see the Pellegrino Sparkling water bar that I styled for a challenge that I was asked to be apart of. Friends let me tell you ! This was so exciting for me ! Our fearless leader Brandi of Don’t Disturb This Groove Blog decided to get 23 ladies together for the #ShowUsYourBarCart challenge. These ladies are so stinking awesome and creative !! I was honored to asked to be apart ! The challenge was a loop, so fi you have some time, head over to my feed, click on my photo and follow the loop to see what the other awesome ladies did !
I figured I would kill two birds with one stone and blog about styling a bar cart. I could not find a bar cart to save my life !! I knew that I could use something else, but this gave me a REALLY GREAT reason to get a bar cart AND I could justify the purchase to my husband ha !! So since I couldn’t find one, I decided to use the buffet that we have in our dining space. It was a perfect alternative !!
I also knew I wanted to use sparkling waters especially since we don’t drink. It doesn’t mean our drinks can’t be pretty ! You know I’m ALL about the pretty !
There are so many drinks that you can make with sparkling water, I plan to make Italian sodas for everyone, so stay tuned for a quick and easy recipe !
You really don’t need a lot of stuff to style your cart or bar cart alternative. All you really need is some pretty glasses and the beverage of your choice.
There is no right or wrong way to do it and it should reflect your personal style ! My cart is symmetrical because I’m very sensitive about symmetry lol ! It also has lots of white with the dishes and cake plates, but pops of color and metallics ( because I love shiny things !) and of course GOLD GLITTER !! See totally ME !! Fancy but a little rustic !
All I did was shop around my house. I know what you’re saying… You must have a lot of entertaining stuff.. and you know what ? You are so right, but can you ever really have enough?!? I don’t think so, but I’m not a hoarder or a pack-rat, I’m just the opposite…
Any ways friends , I hope you’ve enjoyed my little holiday bar cart tour ! Here’s wishing you a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS !
