How to Deck Out Your Bar Cart for the Holidays
'Tis the season of entertaining!
Not only have bar carts become popular over the past year (you've seen them all over Pinterest and Instagram!), they're incredibly useful-especially during this time of year. With the holidays comes hosting and parties, which almost always includes alcohol. This versatile piece can be used as décor and as a bar for any holiday event-so make it festive! Here are our tips on how to get to look the part.
Create Your Workspace
For easy entertaining, use the top tier of your bar cart as a workspace to build your drinks! Keep a set of 4-6 glasses on hand, like these gorgeous and fun Rosanna glasses. In addition to glasses, you'll want to have an ice bucket and any cocktail-making tools handy. We recommend this 5-Piece Shaker Set to start.
Stock Your Bar
It wouldn't be a bar cart without some booze, now would it? Grab your liquors, bitters, mixers, and garnishes! Style it at the bottom or bring it up top-whichever way works best for you. Consider registering for a monthly wine subscription like Winc to widen your horizons!
Bring in Fresh Florals
Decorate with Metallic Accents
Pick your favorite metal as an accent to pulse throughout your cart. Whether it's copper, silver, gold, or even rose gold, choose a theme that brings out the *spirit* of the holiday season (pun intended). Maybe you have your eyes on a metallic bar cart like this gold Sauder beaut, or perhaps you just want to accessorize your current bar cart with other must-have accents like these metallic pineapple shot glasses that double as the perfect decoration.
Add Beautiful Books
On the bottom tier of your bar cart, consider adding a couple cocktail recipe books or other books you love for both decoration and function. Visually, it adds dimension to your bar cart, but it's also a great conversation starter with your guests!
But what if you're in need of a bar cart? Don't worry, we've got you covered. If you're looking for a classic, minimalist bar cart, this gold lux cart is our choice (pictured above!). If you're into a more creative and unique cart, go for this silver three-shelved option. And lastly, for a great group gift, we love this Jonathan Adler glamorous brass bar cart.
