Styling A Bar Cart

Styling A Bar Cart

If you enjoy entertaining, a bar cart is a must. Not only does this cut down the prep time for your party, but it is also a great way to add vintage glamor to your home. When not in use, a bar cart can fit in any corner. But when the celebrations are in full swing it’s a party VIP. To make sure your bar cart will make a splash at your party, you want to be sure that it is dressed to the nines.

The first rule in styling bar cars is to keep them organized. Everything looks better in trays, and if you don’t have a bar cart, a tray can turn a console table or even a shelf into a makeshift one. The second rule in bar cart styling is to think beyond the liquor bottles. The bar cart allows you to bring together all of your bar collectibles from your favorite vintage glasses to unique bar tools. Check out our checklist below for some examples of items that will look great on your shopping cart and some bar cart inspiration.
