bar cART

Living in a NYC apartment makes holiday decorating not always a walk in the park (more like a walk in Central Park after 10pm). If I could have it my way like Frank Sinatra, I would be the comparison to a 2nd grade teacher updating the bulletin board with every holiday they could think of. Man, I really did not fully appreciate all those clever and colorful ways they made a board not be so BORED. The Bar Cart is my version of a teacher’s bulletin board or stringing 100,000 lights around a home. Every holiday I can think up leaves me crafting the cart and getting our spirits into holiday the holiday spirit. I once had a mover try to eat a valentine’s Day themed coaster thinking it was candy. Try coming up with a polite way to say “Sorry sir, that porcelain round object is not edible.” It can be a simple decorating habit buying a festive pack of napkins or candy for the holiday of your choice. I just need to know where all these #Nationalonlychildday, #Nationalcoffeeday, and  #Nationalpetdays are coming from because when you turn into a bar cart bedazzler like myself you want to be prepared with all required items. P.S. My apologies if you do not get the bedazzler reference #STAYYOUNGWILDANDFREE, but if you do I would love some tips on where to purchase one.  Pictured below is just some of the St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween, Easter, and Valentine’s Day decor. Believe me there will be so much more

Yes way Rose

April showers bring May ROSEALLDAY

Get ready for Memorial Day Weekend, and prepare for the transition many have been waiting all year for. Think zombie apocalypse… just more millennials that have no interest in eating you, just in search of an endless fountain of a light pink wine. Shirts, shoes, probably some rosé tattoos, who knows what is to come of 2017?  I mean a giant rosé bottle mascot is already is old news. Spring has sprung and the season of #roséallday hashtags will be filling your social media feeds faster than Whispering Angel selling out on Memorial Day Weekend. No more winter wallowing with rose-colored glasses, the hibernating Summer in a Bottle lovers are ready to play.

April Fools – The Jokes on us?

Truth is historians are not even sure where this day of pranks actually came from. However, every April 1st we find ourselves pondering what pranks and jokes we can play on people. I learned my lesson a long time ago that pranks with my grandma and grandpa “ARE NOT FUNNY.” “No Rachel it’s not a funny joke that you got hitched in Vegas last night.” Also, Ketchup doesn’t even look like real blood (I mean a friend told me) and they also said you end up smelling like tomato sauce, which just makes me want to go to Carbone and eat spicy rig.

  1. Theory 1- “The Canterbury Tale’s”The Nun’s Priest’s Tale”, a story you probably read in high school, or used spark notes on. The tale is based on foolishness and the main characters are rooster and a fox. Yep, It’s a possibility we have a tradition to play jokes on others because of fictional animals.  It is also set on March 32nd maybe proofreading just was not a major priority back then. That or, Geoffrey Chaucer decided to play a joke on us since 1932. If so, someone should call Ripley’s Believe it or Not because that might be the most epic joke of all time.
  1. Theory 2: 1564 – France changed its calendar to the modern Gregorian version. So they moved the New Year celebration from the last week of March to January 1st. In this story those who still celebrated the end of the year on April 1st were laughed at for looking idiotic. I mean it’s not like they went on Evite, or bought NYE party tickets where the date was CLEARLY displayed. I bet those folks all had the same New Year’s resolution – Get a new calendar this year.
