For all the Martha's out there and the Martha wannabes, it’s easy to style a bar cart with a few essentials to keep this focal point “on point.”
Starting with a great cart is essential. It doesn't have to have wheels, any tiered side table will do but of course to keep its vintage charm, a rolling cart is preferred and more versatile.
Picking your favorite liquors is key, but I chose a beautiful bottle. Staging more than one bottle is a great idea, but keeping it simple is also important.
Of course offering many drinks is fun, but streamlining your choices will help keep your cart tidy. You can always choose to serve one signature drink from your cart while still providing an “open bar” from your in home bar nearby.
But what’s inside the cup is only half the fun! Pretty party ware and glasses are a must. From glitzy glassware to snazzy swizzle sticks (and not your basic beverage naps) make for a fanciful presentation! Keeping necessities like lemons, limes, and as seen here, oranges, to juice up your drinks, adds more color and presentation as they can be placed in bowls and remain within reach.
Shake it with a shiny shaker and a pretty pitcher with a fruity drink. A monogrammed hand towel or tray and your favorite flowers will make your cart more personal. What’s best? Your cart can go from room to room with you…looks like you just found a new best friend.
