I went to NYFW this past weekend, and after being surrounded by tall, stylish glamazons these past few days, it feels incredible to be back home, in casual clothes, and settling back into my normal routine. I always appreciate the privilege of attending Fashion Week, but sometimes it can mess with you mentally!

Now that I’m back, and it happens to be the week of Valentine’s Day, I’m working on a bit of self-love and self-care this week. Before I left for NYFW last week, I decided to switch things up and decorate my bar cart for Galentine’s Day. It’s super easy and inexpensive to style your bar cart seasonally. After taking my holiday decor down last month, I’ve been looking for an excuse to infuse a little bit of color and life into my entertaining spaces!

Here are a few easy ways to style your Galentine’s Day Bar Cart!

How to Style a Galentine’s Day Bar Cart:

One // Add Fresh Blooms

Can you even celebrate Galentine’s Day without fresh blooms? I think not!

A bouquet of roses would be the perfect addition to your bar cart this season. The team over at Fiori Floral Studio was kind enough to gift some of their special edition hat boxes, and I was blown away at how unique and exquisite they are! The hat boxes come in two colors: the black/white hat box comes with classic red roses, and their pink/white box comes with hot pink floyd roses. They can deliver to Northern Virginia and Charlottesville if you place your order by February 11th!

Two // Pass the Rosé

Rosé is a crowd-pleaser, and it’s a wine that both red and white wine drinkers typically enjoy. Some of my favorite rosés out there? For a sparkling rosé, I’m a big fan of Taittinger Prestige Rose Brut. For a rosé that’s under $10, I’m a big fan of the J.Mourat OVNI 2017. If you’re looking for a non-alcoholic beverage, try out Welch’s Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Rose Grape Juice

Three // Don’t Forget the Sweet Treats

You can’t celebrate Galentine’s Day without some sweet treats, right?

I styled my bar cart with M&M’s Valentine’s Day Cupid’s Mix, some classic Valentine’s Day Tiny Conversation Hearts, and the Hershey’s Valentine’s Day Lava Cake Kisses.
