A Stylish Bar Cart for New year’s Eve

A Stylish Bar Cart for New year’s Eve

Another year has passed and as I reflect upon 2017, I’m going to sound like all the other blog posts out there – “I feel blessed and am truly thankful for what the year has brought!”. It really has been an amazing year. Finding my rhythm, my squad and creating lasting friendships and mentorships with fellow mom bosses and ladypreneurs! One way I’m celebrating this year is by setting up a stylish bar cart to toast me and my family into the new year. I’ve added all of our favorite drinks so that no one feels left out 🙂

Wine Essentials

My favorite drink would be wine. A really good red does the job. But a white can be just as tasty! For my birthday I received this beautiful rose gold bottle of Bottega.

So this right here will be just fine to toast in the new year!

I bought these really cute flute glasses from HomeSense that are super cute and go so well with my bottle. Fizzy & Fabulous, yes I am lol.

Mini Sweet Table

I didn’t go all out on the desserts seeing that our dinner parties are usually huge. I did a mini version, really easy and really simple. Just the right touch for this pink and gold New Year’s Eve special.

Pink and Gold Bar Cart

This year pink and gold were a huge part of my clients sweet tables. So it was fitting that I ended the year with these colors. Pink and gold, as you may know, are my brands color palette. It has been my favorite colors for as long as I can remember. And seeing that this year was a smashing success, I wanted to incorporate my last post of the year with these colors!

Cheers to 2018!

As I let you go and celebrate with your loved ones, I just have a bit of advice for you heading into 2018. Cherish the moments that 2017 allowed you to grow and become a better version of yourself, and let go all that no longer serves you. It will not serve you in 2018. Know that your growing pains brought you one step closer to you 🙂

Love and light to you all in the new year!

Flamingo Pineapple 1st Birthday Party

Flamingo Party!

If you haven’t already noticed the big trend this year, I think you’ve probably had your head in the sand lol. It’s all about Flamingos and Pineapples this year when throwing a summer party. It’s super fun and colourful that this can be a theme anyone would love to have! That’s why we went with a flamingo party to celebrate my my niece’s 1st birthday.

I especially had so much fun coming up with the design and styling aspect of it. Of course, I HAD to add some glam to the table. Who doesn’t love a sequins table cloth??!! I had to stop a few people from leaving the party with it lol.

Party like a Pineapple

Let’s start with the backdrop… Not only are pineapple and flamingos trending but so are these balloon backdrops. They are everywhere! My instragram feed is filled with them. Of course i had to make one myself :). Let me tell you how easy it is to make one. This is a super easy DIY. And it literally took me 15 minutes to make. Well, of course it helped that my sister blew up all the balloons before hand to help with the process… But that’s beside the point… moving on to how easy this is to make 🙂 All you need is string, balloons in different colors and sizes, fillers like flowers and leaves and something to hang it on. Comment below if you’d like to see a tutorial on how to make one.

The desserts were a hit with the crowd. It’s really simple when all they want are the usuals: cupcakes, cake pops, macarons and oreo gems. I also made some cannolis but they were gone before the party started.

But the best ones were the cinnamon sugar mini donuts I made and dressed up as pineapples! They were so cute! I found a template online that I liked, sized it down and printed it out on green paper. Super easy and take no time at all.

The cake was a red velvet buttercream with floral accents to make you feel like you were away on the islands. The cake toppers were made by my niece’s aunt. She is so creative! She helped with a ton of other table paper decorations.

Happy birthday to this cutie patootie! I wish you many more celebrations and a happy and healthy year to come!

I hope you were inspired for you next summer bash. Until the next table, stay sweet!
