Reindeer Recipes Tour 2016 {part 1}




This year I've teamed up with some of the most fabulous food and lifestyle bloggers to bring you our most treasured recipes and holiday decorating spots in our homes.  If you found this blog via Totally Tailgates, I'm delighted you've stopped by!

This year I wanted to be "on trend" as we say in the blogging world so, I decided to style my very on bar cart.  Now here is the problem, I don't own a bar cart.  I decided that my tea cart was gonna have to work.  I moved the tea cart turned bar cart to a new location in the dining room and already it had a new feel.

One thing that is a must on a bar cart are fresh flowers!  These hydrangeas and a few clippings from my yard made up an inexpensive arrangement.  I think it brightens this dark part of the cart.



Another must is a tray.  Wouldn't you know it, every tray I had just didn't seem to look right, off to the thrift store I went!  Believe it or not this tray was black with poker chips...not gonna work for my look!  With a bit of gold spray paint it is now the perfect shape and size for the cart.  The tray was 3 bucks and those martini glasses, 97 cents!  Honey's mom gifted me (from her collection) those gorgeous monogrammed glasses.  She insists that I have them and I can't argue with my MIL now can I?  Thanks Pie!!!

This year when I was deciding on colors I'd use for the dining room I knew I wanted to go with gold and silver.  It was fun to mix those colors through out the room and on the bar car!

Don't dare forget to add some fresh fruit to your bar car, I had limes on hand.  Ya'll know I have plenty of decanters in the house and those are also a must for any bar cart!  The one that is resting on the gold tray is really my fav one.

  2. Oh my word!!! Yes indeed you are a trendsetter with those sparkling crystal decanters, not one but two and I'm sure you have more in a stash. Lucky you, I love hydrangeas but they won't grow for me. Trust me, I've killed a dozen plants over the years and all you do is step outside. Your cart is adorbes. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Tamyra your tea cart all styled up for holiday cocktails is just perfect. I love how you dressed it up and added the festive touches. I may need to drive over one weekend so we can sip and shop.
