Valentine’s Day Bar Cart

1 (1 of 1)

It’s the month of love, y’all. As if I needed another excuse to decorate something… I’ve used Valentine’s Day as my golden ticket into a bar cart revamp. It was looking a little very sad after I took down our Christmas decor. I can’t have this corner of our hizzle (that’s cool talk for house, fyi) looking like a hot mess because it’s one of the first things you see when you walk in. So naturally when I ran into Target last night (to pick up dental floss and coffee creamer… and nothing else *insert eyeroll*) I grabbed a few things from the target dollar section (aka the dark hole of Target) and wah-lah, we’ve got a decent looking bar cart on our hands. Now who’s coming over for wine and cookies?! 😉

Our Christmas Tablescape

19-1-of-1

It’s almost here! My favorite day of the year is just a few sleeps away. As most of my readers know, we’re hosting the big event this year. First on my list of Christmas prep to-do’s was getting the table set and ready to go. We still need to pop in the leaf and set up a few seats at the bar, but other than that we’re pretty much ready to go. I did a little trial run with the place settings yesterday, these photos are the result of that. I’ve also left all glassware off the table because we’ll be setting up a couple drink stations for easy access throughout the day. Let the festivities begin!

an easy christmas cocktail + coton colors

8-1-of-1

Hi, friends! How are you!? I can’t believe Christmas is next week! #Crazytown.

We’ve been two very busy bees prepping for our first holiday season in the new house and first time hosting Christmas. We’re currently expecting a full house of 12 on December 25th but that number may grow a bit so we’re doing everything we can to plan for the unknown. Any and all tips are welcome! I’ve never hosted Christmas before so I’m thrilled to finally have an opportunity to bust out my red and green china, play around with a few fun new recipes, and decorate a little more than we usually would. It really is the most wonderful time of the year. Now if I can just remember to water the tree I think it’ll be a success!
