Holiday Bar Cart Featuring Flowers From The Bouqs

We enjoy entertaining at home, small get togethers with our friends and family are always fun.

Today I'm sharing how I styled my bar cart for the upcoming holidays.

I like to keep things simple with a few bar cart essentials.

Glasses with cute straws and swizzle sticks from Etsy are a fun way to stir drinks.  A wine chiller keeps bottles cool.

My favorite candles and napkins hanging on the side will come in handy for the accidental spill.

 I have the Threshold cart from Target.  I also purchased these faux agate coasters and gave them a makeover with metallic gold craft paint.

During- first coat of paint

After!

To complete the look I added fresh flowers.

I was recently contacted by The Bouqs, an online flower source with awesome South American flowers picked from the side of an active volcano.
  
I was very excited when they asked if they could send me flowers to review.

The bouquets are beautiful and arrived fresh and carefully packaged.

A simple vase of fresh flowers makes such a big statement.

Cocktail recipe can be found here.

Metallic gold and silver add a bit of glam.


My bar cart is now ready for holiday entertaining!




*Thank you to The Bouqs for providing me with the beautiful bouquets.  All opinions expressed in this post are my own!

  8. Hello Brandi.

    I always wanted a bar car, I think it's chic :)) but I don't have one... instead my husband built a bar, do you believe that?

    Anyway, I love it the way you style your cart bar, I love the gold, and I think the flowers are a very nice touch to it.

  23. Oh, so beautiful! I am old, so I have had a bar cart for years. My Mom bought one back in the early 50s and passed it to me about 20 years ago. I still love it, and seeing what you've done with yours warms my heart. It's not overdone...just beautiful, especially with the gorgeous white flowers. I love white roses for winter!

    Lovely, lovely, lovely!!!
