Bar Cart Style! (Updated)

14 Mar

Hallelujah, I have finally finished styling my bar cart! I didn’t know exactly how I wanted to style it when I first started, all I knew was that I wanted a gold cart with 3 shelves. I started brainstorming and decided on a mostly pink and gold palette. As far as what to put on the shelves, I had to have a cute ice bucket and a pitcher with roses, everything else came to me as I went along. Bar carts are popping up everywhere and for good reason!  They are a fun way to showcase your personality and style, while being totally functional at the same time. When I have people over, my cart will be put to very good use. I love fresh flowers, pink and gold- my bar cart is all of that and more. To say I’m obsessed would be an understatement!

  Now, let’s get to the important stuff…..where did I find everything and how much did I spend?

Let me start by saying if you google ‘bar cart’ right now, you will quickly notice that they can be upwards of $500+!! For the cart alone! BEFORE you style it with all your fun trinkets, alcohol, mixers etc. Let me also tell you that if you really look, you CAN FIND AN AFFORDABLE CART! Check out these Prices below…..I spent under $300 for everything pictured including liquor and mixers.

*Bar Cart $150( I got it on sale for $119), Ice Bucket with tongs $30, silver cocktail spoon $3, Silver muddler $5, glass fruit bowl $2. All from Cost Plus world Market.

*Pitcher/Vase $8 at Home Goods.

*Crystal Decanters $40(I got them on sale for $20)each at Macy’s

*Corkscrew and shaker I already had, but you can find them at Bed Bath & Beyond.

*Mason jar $1, pink straws $5, Glass sugar bowl with lid $4, Key shaped bottle opener $4 all  from Target.

*Hand stamped decanter tags $10 each at Etsy shop Seize the night designs.

*Booze and mixers all from Total Wine

*Roses $7 at Trader Joes

 

Styling tips: Stick to 2-3 main colors. Fresh flowers are always a good idea and I really love the look of fruit as well. Fill the shelves, but don’t overpack them. Make it your own, add personal touches.

UPDATE: Pink sugar cubes have arrived and are in the tiny glass bowl with lid, I also purchased teeny tiny tongs from Crate &Barrel.

My Bar cart is complete!!!!

Custom sugar cubes available at Etsy shop Heather Holidays.

 

My Bedroom Makeover!

7 Dec

I’ve been wanting a tufted bed for a couple of years now and was unsure if I should just get a headboard or an entire bed frame. After shopping around, I decided to go with the entire bed frame SINCE IT WAS SO AFFORDABLE at Target! Once I purchased the bed frame, I went ahead and got two bedside tables as well. When the beautiful bed arrived and I felt weird just throwing my old mattress on there, soooooo I bought a new mattress and box spring at living Spaces. The new bed pretty much snowballed into practically all new bedroom furniture and accessories…. Once the complete bed was set up the night stands arrived, I needed lamps and cute decor so off I went to Lamps plus, Z Gallerie, Macy’s and Home Goods. Fast forward 2 weeks and my bedroom makeover is complete. I am so happy with it and wanted to share where I purchased everything from since most of them were BARGAINS! Minus the bedding- I went a little “fancy” with the bedding.

Anyhow, let’s get into the good stuff….places to purchase and prices.

Fall’s Must Have Hat Under $20

4 Nov

Fedoras are a Fall must have, I wear them year round but am particularly fond of them during the cooler seasons. Fedoras work on everyone, even if you think you’re not a hat person. Fedoras can pretty much be worn with any hairstyle, I wear mine with my hair down, with a side braid and with a low bun.  If you love fedoras, you’ll love my selections below, all under $20 of course. And at these prices, even if you’re not a hat person, now’s the time to step out of your comfort zone and get your first fedora. It’ll look great on you, I promise:)

Target’s Try on Jeans Event!

27 Jul

I have been a fan of Target jeans for a while now, I would say it’s been a good 7-8 years since I tried some on for a camping trip because I needed a pair of “whatever” jeans that weren’t gonna cost too much. I was pleasantly surprised at the fit and quality and have added target jeans to my denim rotation since.  With that being said, I am extremely excited to share the Target try on jeans event with you. For the next week, when you try on a pair of Jeans (or buy a pair online) you will receive $10 off! That is $10 their already reasonably priced jeans! Why you ask? Target wants you to see for yourself how great their jeans are. They have recently revamped their entire denim lineup.

Hurry and go to your local Target or shop online….offer ends August 1. Promo Code: TRYON10
