February 5, 2016 | By | Comments (5)

We’re delighted today to bring you a bar cart DIY project from Style Me Pretty’s founder and editor Abby Larson. With pretty pinks and glittery golds, this bar setup is perfect for a Valentine’s Day get-together with the girls.

“This small bar cart DIY is a mere $30 to start,” says Larson. “That’s peanuts compared to its store-bought counterparts and it’s is the perfect size for smaller spaces. Plus, it has that whole gold, glam feel to it. What’s not to love?”

Tip 1: For a fun party set-up, line up a collection of gorgeous cocktail glasses. And don’t forget festive drink accoutrements like gold straws, drink stirrers and coasters. This is the perfect spot to add a little personality to your display.

Tip 2: Be sure to stock the bar with basics so there is a little something for everyone. If liquor bottles don’t match the set-up, pour the contents into pretty decanters.

Tip 3: Another great addition to really gussy up your bar is with signage, or in this case, tassels! It lets guests know your cocktail corner is where the party’s at.
