Even though last Monday was my birthday — which was great thanks to my family and friends — the rest of the week was kind of a hot mess. I’ll spare you all the details, but let’s just say that I wound up being super tired and cranky.
So last week when I was feeling sorta down, I decided that the best way to lift my spirits was to, well, engage in a little retail therapy. And stock my bar cart.
No, not with alcohol, silly. With pretty accessories. (Duh.)
Anyway, because springtime entertaining season is finally upon us, it’s definitely time to add some new, beautiful touches to your bar area. (Can I please get a “cheers”?!)
Against my better judgment, I recently purchased a bar cart. With two small kids in the house, I was beyond leery of buying one for SO long. Especially with the littlest dude, who literally loves to climb and pull at everything in his path. So….yeah.
But I spotted one at Target (Gah, Target. You get me EVERY TIME.) that was on sale, and I just couldn’t resist.
Looks like Target already sold out of the exact model I purchased, but here’s one that’s quite similar. Don’t you love how this looks FAR more expensive than it is?! This felt like the deal of the century for something that looks so luxe.
If you don’t have a bar cart, no worries! You can still keep a few of these great finds on hand for your next gathering, whether it’s an impromptu barbecue with your neighbors or a sophisticated cocktail party.
Or a Friday at 3pm. Just sayin’.
Anyway, let’s get to it! Here are my favorite stylish (yet affordable!) finds:
Which ones are your favorites? Personally, I am LOVING the pineapple-esque drinkware, along with the melamine trays (that floral one from Anthropologie is SO GOOD). And honestly, who doesn’t need a gold flamingo bottle opener?!
What else are you adding to your bar cart this season? Tell me in the comments!
If you wanna save this for later when you’re ready to shop, just pin it:
