Whether you have a bar cart or an actual bar in your home, like most things when the seasons change so too should your bar. So today I wanted to provide a few helpful tips on making your bar ready for winter, plus we’ve teamed up with Studio Ten 25 to gift one of you lucky Loves a $250 gift card to make these cold weather changes an actual reality. I mean their gold bar cart and lucite tray would be insane under my Christmas tree. And well any bar would be winter ready simply by adding this. Happy Monday! truly, MKR.
Updating your Bar for Winter…
1. The main goal for all winter decorating is to bring warmth to a space in any way you can. An easy way to accomplish this is with the use of metallics. By adding a gold candle, gold coasters, and a copper pitcher filled with long matches my cart immediately felt more cold weather friendly.
2. Trade out your summertime libations for more winter appropriate ones. Think scotch, whiskey, bourbons, and red wines. Anything that brings warmth to your belly and keeps the frigid temperatures at bay.
3. Switch out decorative objects to be more in line with the season. For me that meant moving corks into a stag bowl and flowers into a stag wine holder rather than the blue and white ginger jar patterned bowl and vase they used to be in.
4. The easiest way to add a cold weather feel is by incorporating animals. The antelope that adorns my wall from Studio Ten 25 transcends seasons, and during certain festive times I’ll even add a pom pom garland or wreath to his head.
So now that we know how we’re going to update your bar let’s get to the actual giveaway…
