Mother’s Day “Rosé” Bar Cart

Soooooo do you have a bar cart yet?  I’ve recently invested in not 1 but 2 of them and I have to say…the party planner in me is totally obsessed.  They are so fun and versatile!!  Also great for people that don’t have a whole lot of space but still want to entertain.  You can dress them up or down, beverages, treats, candles, flowers, food, party favors, the possibilities are endless!  If you don’t have a butler’s pantry or a wet bar in your home, these are fantastic options.  Being able to move it around is so nice and your guests can easily help themselves!  Some are bigger, some smaller. You just have to find one that works for you and your space.  The one above is from West Elm.  Target has a cute one has well online.

With Mother’s Day just a few weeks away, I decided to do a “Mother’s Day Rose Bar Cart” to give y’all some ideas for the upcoming event!  Whether your a mama, a mama-t0-be, have a mama, mama in-law, grandmama, or just a special person in your life who is a mama…they deserve to be pampered.  Being a mom is serious business.  As most of you know, it’s the most rewarding and challenging thing you will ever do in your life.  And those mama’s deserved to be damn appreciated on this day right?  So bust out some pink bubbly and get going.  Make your special Mama feel extra special on Mother’s Day!  She will appreciate you 🙂 And because I like any reason or holiday whatsoever to have a glass of champagne, (I know I’m not alone) I decided to stick with a sparkling rosé theme.

Recreate this look very easily!  Chandon Rosé is great sparkling wine and very reasonably priced.  You might have to order the splits (mini bottles) online as did I.  And if you are going with a “pink” theme it’s perfect.  Veuve Clicquot has a great rosé champagne as well if you want to spend some dough on your mama.

Give your champagne flutes a little extra special touch and adorn them with pink sugar!!  Cut a wedge out of a lime and then slice the lime so that it will slide around the rim of the glass easily.  Pour some sugar onto a plate and then dip the glass into it while twisting and turning.  Looks so pretty.  Hang tags are a fun way to spruce up your glasses as well!  You can find them anywhere.  These were blank (except for the gold circles) and I used a “Happy Mother’s Day” stamp and gold ink to customize them.  You can find the stamp, ink and tags at the Paper Source. Stampers are everywhere!  Michaels, Joanne, Hobby Lobby, and craft store.  They are an awesome way to add a personal touch to tags, signs or whatever you are creating.                                                                                                                                                           Hang Tags from the Paper Source                                                                                                    Mother’s Day Stamp

Champagne Gummy Bears.  Need I say more?  These are amazing.  Find them at the Papersource or at Sugarfina Candy  Sugarfina has ahhhhhmazing candy.  It’s pricey, but worth it if you want to splurge a bit.  I like to have some sweet treats around.  These make awesome favors!

More sweet treats.  Now I know these don’t look like an expert baker made these cupcakes. LOL! My first time “Piping” frosting on a cupcake.  Not too horrible right?  Ok well not great.  But the taste is all that matters.  YUM, YUM!  Homemade frosting is the way to go.  I never realized how easy it was!  Check out this recipe. It’s a whipped frosting.  Absolutely delicious. I made vanilla cupcakes but would like the frosting better on chocolate.    Buttercream Frosting

And there you have it!  Add some beautiful flowers and Mother’s Day accents, you’re all set!  Your loved one will feel oh so special!  (Gold MOM letter’s are from Hobby Lobby!)
