How To Style A Bar Cart

{my bar cart alternative}

Bar carts are all the rage right now and as trendy as they are I think they’ll be sticking around. There’s something classic and sophisticated about them and they are a great way to take your stylish soiree up a notch! Styling a bar cart is not as daunting as you think either. With just a few staples you can have a perfectly polished serving cart in no time. Here are my top 8 bar cart must haves:

  1. A fun set of glasses (preferably vintage)
  2. Wine, liquor & mixers
  3. Ice bucket
  4. Decanter
  5. Serving items (shaker, tongs, bottle opener, cork stoppers, stirrers, coasters)
  6. A non-bar item (a small plant, piece of artwork, vase of flowers, cocktail books)
  7. Tray
  8. Cute napkins, straws and dish or tea towel

Did you see how all of the carts shown above include a combination of these items. The list may seem long but don’t worry, you probably already have most of it and you can tailor them to your specific needs or type of gathering you’re hosting.

Here are a few of my favorite bar carts on the market right now:

  1. My parents always had a bar cart and in Germany it wasn’t an issue with us as teenagers. I’d love to have one too but don’t want to get in trouble because my kiddos friends might take something out of the stash. Such a bummer. I love them
