Happy (almost) Valentine's Day, y'all! This year I decided to throw my first Galentine's Party for my best girl friends so I could ask them to stand by me in my wedding (spoiler - they said yes! Yay!) Rearranging my bar cart with lots of pink V-Day accents and yummy sweets was a definite must for the get together! I had so much fun putting together this shoot and planning a Galentine's that I will definitely have to make it a tradition!

A bar cart is such a staple in any modern home, they just make everything look so chic and fun! Plus, they are perfect for entertaining and just too cute when styled! I've linked some of my favorite in the widget below at multiple price points that would look perfect in any home, for example, a corner bar cart would add stylish touch to a small apartment or studio.

Are these confetti poppers not the cutest? I thought they were such a fun and unique way to "pop" the question to my girls, and they were a big hit!

I wanted the aesthetic to be bright, cheery, and, of course, pink so I went shopping and found some fun pink garland, a sassy print, and heart shaped sweets. The finishing touch was a vase of fresh flowers because what sort of Valentine's soiree would be complete without a bouquet of roses?

Some bar cart styling tips:

1. Stick to one color scheme or theme: 
It’s definitely easy to go a little crazy especially when there’s so much cute Valentine’s d├ęcor, but keeping a specific theme in mind and only using what goes with that will keep everything looking streamlined and consistent.

2.  Less is more: 
Be sure to think about negative space and don’t crowd your bar cart! Choose one or two statement pieces and no more, it packs a bigger punch and will keep your cart from looking too cluttered. Use the rule of thirds, and if you think it’s starting to look too busy – it probably is! 

3. Details, details, details: 
Details are my favorite part, if you can’t tell! Having some unique and cute details will take your styling to the next level, it really is the details that make it!
