Part of me is ready for the High Holidays, and part of me isn’t. I love the big meals and feels, but somehow I always feel underprepared. So I’m trying to get started with some holiday decor to help me get into the mood.
Last week I posted up some super easy glitter candles, and now I’m going to show you how I styled them in my bar cart. Are bar carts still a thing? I don’t know, but I have one and I’m going to use it. If you have one, too, then I’m guessing you probably feel the same. If you don’t have one, you can always substitute in a sideboard or fireplace mantle as your decorating surface. There are no rules here.
Starting with the top, I covered the glass with a green, red, and pink polka dot rubber that I found at an after-Christmas sale. (Always be shopping for decor through the year!). Since this is a champagne cart, I placed a bottle of rosé bubbly in the center. To the left, I placed a bouquet of flowers and one of my Rosh Hashanah printables framed in a dollar store frame. To the right, my glitter candles and a small champagne glass tower. No need to risk the fancy stuff here, that’s just a pack of plastic ones for show. I do have a child and pets, after all.
The bottom shelf has a red placemat with a big bowl of scented pinecones and fake pomegranate stems (again, the dollar store). I love the different fall textures together and the smell is amazing. Did you know you can get maple scented pine cones now? They smell amazing, and just the perfect sweet background scent for Rosh Hashanah. To fill in the sides, I added some big sparkly floral picks that drop glitter everywhere. But it’s worth it.
