I’ve joined up with my dear friend Kim Ray to bring you Hutch & Ray…a Christmas Collaboration. This post is one of many holidays tidbits that we’ll be bringing you this season! Be sure to hop over to Kim Ray’s blog…she’s got all the details on the fashion end! We’re posting similar items, but each with a different twist! xo
Christmas Cocktail Cart
When the seasons change this bar cart is always the first thing I decorate. I found this cart in the back of the super-duper-really-on-sale aisle. It was something like $40 and I’m still trying to figure out how it was so marked down––but I’m not complaining! My girlfriend Liz gave me the great idea of adding a little rosemary tree to the bar cart––it makes it extra festive and you can use the little rosemary sprigs for garnish! Brilliant! I added tiny seed lights to the tree from the Target dollar spot and there you go—I’ve got a tree and drinks waiting to be poured…what more do I need? Kidding! One more thing. See those little Christmas tree stir sticks? They’re so cute! If you can’t find them in the Target dollar spot it might be because some crazy lady bought them all. Yes, that would be me. I’m not keeping them––I plan to gift them! Speaking of gifts Kim and I have put together some great guy gift ideas…and the bar cart seemed like a fitting place to feature a few of them…
Casual Christmas Styles
We’re all about the fancy, but it’s great to have some casual Christmas styles to pull out for the cozier family get togethers. Get all the details about these darling outfits on Kim Ray’s blog. Also, if it looks like I’m growing a small Christmas tree farm in my living room you are (just about) right. I decided to go with a botanical look this year––the best part is that the house smells like a tree farm too!
