STYLE & THE BAR CART - THANKSGIVING WITH A TROPICAL TWIST
Hello darlings! Can you believe it’s Thanksgiving week already? The year is quickly winding down but that also means it’s time to entertain and spend quality time with family and friends. While I enjoy entertaining, I sometimes shy away from it especially during the holidays because it can become overwhelming but today I have the perfect option for those not looking to cook an entire meal. Invite your friends over for a dessert and a cocktail with my Thanksgiving "Style & The Bar Cart." If you're not familiar with this series let me quickly break it down for you.
Style & The Bar Cart is a creative series that combines my passions (style, decor, vintage & DIY) to serve as outfit and occasion inspiration for the modern-vintage girl who loves to entertain in style and prefers cocktails over wine.
For this Bar Cart I decided to go with a simple Thanksgiving themed cart and added bit of a topical twist because that’s just how I roll. For the cocktail I made a Mango Mint Aperol Spritz and included other mango-flavored beverages such as juice and seltzer water on the cart. I also baked (via Trader Joe’s, lol) a delicious Pumpkin Spice Pie because what’s Thanksgiving without one?
Here’s a fun fact, I’d never had Pumpkin Pie until moving to the US 10+ years ago and initially I thought the idea was weird because we use Pumpkins for savory dishes in Guyana. Well my perspective quickly changed after trying the pie and now I have to have a slice whenever the season rolls around.
A vase full of greenery and my DIY Fall Macrame Wreath kept the decor friendly while my vintage vegetable print dress and raffia fruit heels play up the entire theme. I’ve rounded up several pieces at the end of this post so you can recreate the feel of this look and entertain in style this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving!
