I’m often asked how I would “define my style.” I’ve always had a hard time putting my style into words. I love a little glitz and glamour combined with some fun pops of color all against a white background.
Think deer antlers….gilded in gold.
a disco ball propped up against a mirrored tree stand. A family heirloom made over in electric blue! A fur throw over a navy velvet chair.
Are you getting the idea?
So when I saw the Home Goods Stylescope Quiz I was excited to actually find out what to call my “style!”
I took the easy quiz…no signing up. no questions to answer. just choosing five images that appeal to you…and your style is revealed! It was no surprise that I met the criteria for TWO different styles.
A little….Vegas Baby
with a dash of …..Sassy!
Why does this not surprise me?! grin! We’ll call it…. Sassy Vegas Baby!
I think the two descriptions sum up my style well:
VEGAS BABY: “Vegas Baby is ready, willing, and unafraid to go over the top! She gambles with design. She gets the biggest bang for her buck. She mixes dark hues, animal prints, and sparkly, metallic accents. And, she is fun, fun, fun, and everyone that visits can’t help but get lost in the nightlife noir of her wonderfully wild world.”
SASSY: “Sassy is just that! She couldn’t be short on personality if she tried. She expresses herself with playful colors, fun patterns, and an unabashed boldness—all acquired at very savvy prices. She knows her style, and she’s not afraid to take risks and have fun. When you visit a Sassy friend, you can’t help but smile.”
Once I had defined my style it was time to head to Home Goods! My mission…to style a bar cart for my holiday entertaining using some amazing finds from HomeGoods!
I found some fun barware ideas while at HomeGoods, many would be perfect for gift giving!
Once I got home and unwrapped my finds, it was time to style my bar cart!
I started with a vintage bamboo gilded cart I picked up at one of my favorite local antique markets! Then I made sure it was stocked with all the necessities to keep our holiday entertaining hopping!
like wine for instance! Wine is a staple for us during the holidays and we like to keep a variety that will appeal to the palates of all of our guests. There’s no need to spend a lot, some of our favorites are under $10.00 I loved these pretty mercury glass looking stemless glasses I found at Home Goods. They had several sets to choose from, but of course knowing I’m a Vegas Baby, I gravitated towards the sparkly ones!
For mixed drinks keep several mixers on hand for creating a quick and delicious cocktail! I found so many fun and unique mixers at Home Goods, as well as some sparkly wine stoppers…there’s that Vegas again!
Be sure to keep some non-alchohlic options available as well for your guests. They’ll appreciate having some fun options to choose from like nonalcoholic mixes and flavored waters!
For those moments when your guests get the “munchies”, it’s nice to keep a bowl of something sweet to nibble. I found this pretty pottery bowl at HomeGoods and filled it with some Harry and David Chocolate Popcorn that I found at….you guessed it….Home Goods! They truly have a little bit of everything! Be sure to provide some little appetizer plates, like the ones pictured above. Keep a pretty drink shaker handy so when you’re busy in the kitchen or chatting with friends, your guests can mix up a drink or two for themselves!
An ice bucket is a must, and I loved this small one I found at Home Goods! It was just the perfect size for the bar cart. For those who like their drinks on the rocks, these blue tumblers are perfect…and the Sassy in me loved the cobalt blue!
Here’s a list of a few more “must have” holiday bar cart ideas ….
Wine Bottle Opener
Small Cocktail Napkins
Pretty Tray to hold small bar items
Wine Bottle Holder (the Sassy in me loved this silver antler one)
…and some chocolate…cause that always goes good with wine!
