Since Valentine’s Day is just two days away–and Galentine’s Day is tomorrow–I thought I’d show you how I decorated my bar cart for the holiday. A bar cart provides a great focal point for the room, as well as serving a functional purpose. Just a few changes to the decorations and you’re all set!
I got this pink shimmery backdrop paper at Michaels and hung up three long strips behind the cart. It was a great way to make the space festive without having to involve paint or anything drastic!
I framed a great holiday card to add some dimension to the cart. You could also frame a small piece of art, or even a fun drink recipe for your guests! I also punched hearts out of red glittery wrapping paper, and used double sided tape to stick them together with the string in between. Easiest garland ever.
These X and O dishes are from the new Alphabet Soup collection at Michaels–I can’t tell you how excited I was that they even had an X! I initially bought it because my design studio is X Height Ment, and then when I got home and was planning my Valentine’s Day posts, I kicked myself for not buying the O too. So I had to go back and get it the next day (of course).
I love how this cart turned out! It’s so festive and fun, and makes for a great place for guests to gather while they’re filling their glasses. Now for the real question of the holiday– Conversation hearts: love em or leave em? I love them, but I love pretty much anything that’s pure sugar. I recently found out that so many people aren’t even tempted by them! Which camp are you in?
