Holiday Bar Cart Design

I am so happy I get to share my holiday bar cart with you! As I mentioned last week, I haven't yet been hit by the holiday spirit this year. Giving my bar cart a little holiday makeover is definitely helping! (But I think it's Christmas cookies and peanut butter balls that will really do it).
As with my Autumnal / Friendsgiving bar cart, I didn't completely start fresh. I kept some of my favorite items and then incorporated festive holiday touches. I swapped out the acorns in the crystal dish for gold "jingle bells," replaced the floral straws with chevron straws in mint green and gold, added some holiday coasters and napkins, reindeer figurines, a holiday card, and a snow globe. You might notice there isn't much traditional red and green in this design - that's because I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to primary colors. 
I am absolutely head over heels for this French Herb Wreath by Creekside Farms via Food52 Provisions. It's made with lavender, marjoram, sage, purple oregano, thyme, and bay. It smells incredible, and I love that it's a twist on a recognized symbol.
Straws from Sprinkled Joy | Eiffel Tower ornament from World Market (no longer available) | Happy Holidays card by Sugar Paper | Ceramic reindeer from Target | Kate Spade holiday napkins (no longer available) | Rufflewood pink cocktail napkins | "Vintage Holiday" coasters by Flutter Letterpress (these are gorgeous and only $2 for a pack of 4!)
