How to Style a Bar Cart
If you don’t already own a bar cart, we’re here to tell you why you should go out and purchase one immediately. If you already have one, we want to show you some fun ways to style it and you’ll probably want to go out and purchase a second one for another room. (Erin currently has two in her home)
So, besides the fact that they totally up the ‘I’m really cool, sophisticated and classy” vibe in your home, the bar cart is quite functional. It can provide storage, help when you’re entertaining and of course give you a stylish place to store ingredients for your favorite cocktail. They can also serve as a coffee bar, hot chocolate bar during the holidays or a side table for any room. It is such a fun piece to style for each season or holiday too!
When styling a bar cart, there are a few basics that you want to make sure you have. Stylish barware, cute glasses or mugs, an ice bucket and your choice of spirits. If you want to step it up a notch or two, we recommend adding the following: flowers (real or fake), fun artwork, paper straws in fun colors and cocktail napkins. We pulled together a few fun items in three different styles to give you some inspiration. All items are found on Amazon and we have included the link to each item.
We start with the Glamorous Gold Bar Cart which includes the best book we have seen on bar carts. It shows you many different styles and even includes cocktail recipes.
Next up is the Farmhouse Chic Bar Cart with galvanized barware! GALVANIZED BARWARE!!! We haven’t seen anything like these fun, rustic pieces and can’t wait to get our hands on them along with those adorable mint julep napkins.
Last but not least, we wanted to include a Give Me All the Coffee Bar Cart. This would be fun to set up in a walk-in pantry or breakfast nook area.
These are just a few ways to have fun and play around with styling a bar cart. We hope it excited you and gave you some inspiration!
