It’s time to celebrate love y’all! I’ve teamed up with 6 other super talented bloggers to bring you some gorgeous inspiration for your own Valentine’s Day bar cart! Whether you’re getting dolled up for a date night, having your girlfriends over for a GALentines celebration, or just decorating around your home, a Valentine’s Day bar cart is an easy and perfect addition for the occasion! Cocktails or mocktails, it’s just a fun way to celebrate and I’ve included a few easy recipes for both!
If you’re just joining me from Marci’s page over at LemonstoLovelys, Welcome! Isn’t her Valentine’s Day bar cart a dream? I’m excited to share my romantic & rustic bar cart for you to enjoy next! Y’all know I love my copper, so adding a touch of blush made it a simple way to give this baby a little holiday update.
Once all of the January organizing has taken place, the weather is still chilly outside, and we’re all patiently awaiting spring, blush pinks and pretty flower arrangements are how I like to transition out of my post-Christmas slump. I love incorporating that fresh spring feel and little pops of pink can go a long way!
And I must say, copper and blush might be my new favorite combo. It’s romantic and pretty with the blush tones and flowers, yet still masculine and rustic with the metals and raw woods. I’ve linked everything I used to create this bar cart so you can use some, or all of the pieces to create your own at home! I also used a free place card website called placecardme.com to print out the names of the drinks I came up with!
Alright, let’s get to the fun drink ideas I came up with, both cocktail & mocktail! I’m excited to share them with you guys, however I’m no mixologist, so my drinks I make are super easy, but tasty none the less! To begin, we will start with cocktails, because bourbon. You all know I’m a huge fan of bourbon, so first up we’re serving
Love Potion No. 9
1.5 oz Bourbon
3.5 oz Cranberry Ginger ale
Pour over ice
Next up we have these super fun
Cotton Candy Cocktails
1.5 oz Chilled Strawberry Vodka
2.5 oz Chilled Strawberry Perrier
Pour over Cotton Candy
Now onto mocktails!!! Now the first one is super easy because it’s literally the same drink as the Cotton Candy Cocktail as shown above, only minus the vodka.
Cotton Candy Mocktail
Pour chilled Strawberry Perrier over ice & cotton candy
Finally, last but not least, the

Slowly add strawberry Perrier or strawberry soda
