Hi guys! Eeek I am so excited for today’s post. I LOVE styling a good bar cart. Its like the finishing touch to any party I host. I even keep a styled bar cart in my office **insert monkey emoji with hands over eyes**. I just feel it’s that extra little touch that sets you apart. If you remember from wednesday’s post of our Valetine’s Day behind the scenes video (view here), I recently had the pleasure of producing an entire Valentine’s Day themed shoot (can’t wait to share all those Valentine’s meets with you guys!). For the shoot I wanted to create a bar cart that was not only full of fun, and full of all kinds of pretty but very functional. I mean what’s the point of a pretty bar cart that doesn’t do much else right? Today I am sharing with you my styling tips for creating the prettiest Valentine’s Day bar cart for your next Vday event!
Start with a sign. I like adding a sign that is welcoming. It sets the tone and helps guests feel comfortable to help themselves to the bar cart.
Add the Bubbly. I mean this is a bar cart after all! Add your bubbly and spirits so that they are readily available to pour and serve.
Think Pink. Although there is no rule that says Valentine’s Day has to be a shade of pink, I honestly believe that pink is indicative of Valentine’s Day. I simply love all the color combo possibilities that the pink allows. Pink-Peach, Pink-Red, Pink-Orange, Pink-Aqua!!! All amazing on trend color combos for a modern Valentine’s Day event.
Display some sweets. It’s Valentine’s Day! Show your guests how much you care about them with some sweet treats to nibble on while they pour and serve themselves the bubbly. Plus candy always looks so pretty when displayed in a candy dish. Instant pretty detail!
Don’t forget the gift bags. A bar cart is a great place to also display any parting gifts you’d like your guests to take home.
Add a banner. Finish it off with a Banner! Anything that says I LOVE you my friends is always a nice touch :)
And there you have it, all the elements you’ll need to create the prettiest Valentine’s Day bar cart!
