I am the owner of Inspired By…Designs a full service interior design firm that specializes in e-design working with virtual clients and I am the writer over on the blog Inspired By… . When I am not working with clients or blogging, I am mom most amazing 17 month old baby girl named Addison. I am so excited to be a holiday contributor over here on A Blissful Nest and today I’ll be sharing my top five tips to creating a festive fall bar cart for your next get together with family and friends.
Top Five Tips for a Festive Fall Bar Cart:
Tip 1: Keep Your Guests In Mind:
This time of year is a great time to get your closest family and best friends all together to celebrate. Whether you are decorating your table or your bar cart, you need to keep your guests in mind. For example, a party with where little kids will be attending mason jars and a variety of flavored sodas might be a great alternative to delicate champagne flutes and prosecco.
Tip 2: Stock Up On The Essentials:
When It comes to entertaining you never want to worry about running out of food or drink for your guests. Be sure to keep extras of everything close by or even stored on the bottom of the bar cart so people know there is enough for them to take seconds (or even thirds!)
Tip 3: Simplicity Is Key:
Ever since becoming a mom I feel like this has been my motto and even if you don’t have kids, keeping things simple is always the way to go. You can plan and prep and position everything just right but as soon as your guest walk through the door things get moved and touched. If you keep it simple you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the party.
Tip 4: When In Doubt Add Some Flowers:
I always have fresh flowers around my home no matter what time of year it is. During the fall I love to bring in flowers with deep reds, oranges and greens.
Tip 5: Make It Fun:
Don’t forget to have fun! Right before Halloween and through Thanksgiving there are plenty of places to get mini pumpkins, I like to keep a bunch in my home when I have people over because your guests can take them home as a party favor!
